I've been taking things pretty easy production wise around here. I'm taking the motto 'slowly, slowly', and it's turning up good results, I'm liking what I'm making. I'm spending less time feeling resentful whilst sewing something I don't so much like-- not that it happened often, but it did happen. This new mindset is a good one to be in... and these are the things that have come into being this week:
I'm yet to sell a brown skinned doll, but I like them, so I'm sticking at it.
I started making these little scarf wearing gals just before Christmas-- an accident, I really messed up the hair and the headband, and in an attempt to salvage certain coloured felts, I stumbled across this do... they last about 4 seconds on the table before someone buys them!
And this special matroshka fabric which I bought from The Netherlands has been sitting around for months, I cut out a dew drop doll dress as soon as it arrived, but it wouldn't work with ANYTHING, that is until Riyo generously donated all this lovely teddy bear fabric to my stash, and voila!
But these three girls won't be at Glebe tomorrow, they have headed up to the Notebook offices to have a photoshoot, as they will be featured in the craft section of the April edition-- very exciting for me, and the blinky and dew drop girl pattern will be published here too!
These guys will be there tomorrow, despite the crazy heat that is predicted! Jeepers-- 39 and windy, I'm not sure if I'll stick after noon, but I'll be there in the morning for sure.
I've gone a little crazy with the message blinkies- 'say I'm only bee in your bonnet' is going to be a hard one to hand over to someone else.
She's half bug, half doll... something new for me. I will be so sad when that pink floral pillow case runs out...
Hope you all have a great weekend, and if you're in Sydney too, I hope the heat isn't too mean!
