Prairie Points in towels

Hello Everybody! I have some towels very similar in color, so I decided to make them different. I used prairie points just to practice. I think they are so beautiful and I can use the small fabric rags. Now, when I take any pink towel I don't make a mistake if others take one pink too.
Have a lovely weekend!

Christiene has gone!

I finished my first Teeny Tiny doll, Christiene! My daughter gave her to the girl, who loved it so much that she is going to bed with her. My other daughter asked for making one to her, but only after finishing other projects.


I sew the sides firstly. Then, I sew the rend on it before closing the legs. Finaly, the elastic, which I found very difficult. Next time I will make the underpants white.



I took off the shoes. We didn't like them.

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!
