Doll Review: Cedar Wood From Ever After High

Woo-hoo! We are back and wishing everyone a happy New Year! Now, let’s talk about dolls!  While I have seen “Ever After High” dolls in stores and browsed through other collector’s online reviews, I have yet to own one myself…until now! Yes!  I received two of these awesome dolls for Christmas!  Well, actually I received one and Sister got the other, but that’s beside the point.  The point is that there are now two, new, gorgeous dolls to pose, photograph, sew cute clothes for, etc…. But what is “Ever After High”?  Here’s a little background for those who would like to know: Ever After High is a line of fashion dolls (started by Mattel inRead The Post

Doll Fashions: Holiday Dresses For Disney Animator Dolls

Welcome to our dolls’ Christmas Fashion Show Part Two! This time our Disney Animator Dolls get to have the spotlight. Let’s start with Tinker Bell and her sweet, Christmas kitty themed ensemble:                   Tinker Bell is wearing a red, knit sweater that has three cats embroidered on the front; black, knit leggings; and a pair of super cute, “UGG” style boots. Remember this sweater? It was the topic of my “Red Sweater Saga” post.  Saved from the brink of craft condemnation, it’s now ready for the world to see! These black leggings compliment Tink’s red sweatshirt perfectly!  I needed a break from Velcro, so I used black knit fabric and anRead The Post

Doll Fashions: Christmas Dresses For Mini And Barbie Dolls

Today we are going to have some holiday fun with a post showing off the Christmas themed dresses I made for my fairy and Disney dolls! Let’s start with a bit of fairy finery: These two fairies may be twins, but their dresses are very different:Tink is wearing a lovely, hunter green, Christmas patterned dress; while her sister, Periwinkle, sports a wintry, snowflake schemed gown. Vidia’s stunning, strapless dress has a red top, and a skirt covered with wreaths and bows.  However, it’s Rosetta who really steals the show!  Her gown is sewn from red, satin fabric then trimmed around the top with white, lacy ribbon, and faux fur at the bottom. Elegant isRead The Post

Have you ever made something that you were extremely proud of, then had a stroke of bad luck that almost ruined your beautiful handiwork? Well, this very thing happened to me just last week. Christmas is my favorite holiday. So, naturally, I’ve been eager to work on some Christmas-y sewing projects. My first project (and the one that almost didn’t make it) was this red, knit sweater: This was originally an old, Christmas shirt of mine that had hardly been worn (let’s just say I don’t look good in red), but I thought it had the potential to be a super cute doll shirt. I just love the little cats embroidered on the front!😻Read The Post

Doll Craft: How To Make Markers For Your Dolls!

Hello, everybody! You probably remember the photo story that Tinkerbell wrote a while ago (you can find it here) showing how she a Finding Dory Giant Coloring Book for Tinker Bell, my Disney Animator doll.  However, poor Tink failed to tell you how she made the crayons for the book!                   Here are the little crayons that Tink made: In all honesty, they are pretty simple.   Nothing more than wooden dowels cut to size, then sanded, colored with a permanent marker, and wrapped with a little construction paper.  Part of me thinks they might even be a little too simple. So, I recently updated theRead The Post
