WIP - My Teeny Tiny Doll Hair

Finally I took the guts to make the hair on my doll. I think it is the most difficult thing to make. I just made it. The next step is her face and then the clothes. How about her name? Do you have a suggestion, please?
Have a lovely weekend!

WIP - My first Teeny Tiny Doll

Today I woke up to finish my Teeny Tiny Doll! I follow the directions of the blog here with only some changings. I sew together the body fabric with the head fabric like Tildas are made here. I think it is easier this way. I found a little difficult to sew the body and I had to change the sewing machine foot to zip foot due to the volume and the pins inside it. I found a plastic bag full of things I need such as rends, ribbons, aqua organza ribbon satin, knotted edge ribbons, polka ribbons, pom pom trims, and a lovely crochet trim with a light pink edge that is perfect for my doll. That are a treasure! I have no idea about her face and clothes? Any idea? Thanks for your input!
Have a lovely week!

I sewed the lines on the legs and arms before pin then.
 

  

  

 

I let a small hole with stuffing of your choice and sew it with small stitches.

My First Teeny Tiny Doll

I love Tildas very much!Finally I decided to go for Teeny Tiny Doll. This one is to a two-year-old beautiful girl. It's not the easiest thing I've tried my hand at. I looked for the patterns and you can see it at here. I've been working on the doll. I took the materials that I have such as the fabric, laces, buttons, pom pom ribbons, etc. I have felt to make the hair, but I'm not sure whether I will use felt or yarn. I bought a yarn to make the hair though. I don't know about the clothes yet. I love the pom pom ribbons very much. My dog is sick. She is so frisky, but is on bed.
Have a lovely weekend! ((Hugs))

Cushion Cover

I decided to make a cushion and I made a pillow cover without Velcro or zipper on it because it is easier to wash. The opening band is in the middle of it instead of being on the bottom edge.

Empty Tic Tac Organizer

I have had my ribbons organized in tic tac boxes for a long time. It is great because the ribbons don't be crumped and I can see the color I need just looking at the bottom. You can use empty tic tac. I don't keep the ribbon outside. I just put the box upside down to see the colors.
Have a nice weekend!

Talking

Hello everybody, I've been busy here.

I have just passed by to say I have a project of talking to care home elderly via Skype. I think this would be great for them to exchange ideas, talk about recipes or hobbies just for fun. If you know someone who wants to talk to me, please, keep in touch here. Thank you. Have a lovely Sunday.

Braided towels

Hello Everybody,

We are on vacation in Brazil, so it is time to cleaning up, get rid of things to give to the nuns. I believe that the flux of things can keep on going taking the stagnant energy. According to Feng Shui, clutter is one kind of stagnant energy. I also like the wind chimes very much. I gave one to my sister made from bamboo because it is sounds like a water fountain. It is very soothing and relaxing. The other kind made from cooper sounds like a song. Here are two new towels I made. Have a lovely week.
