LaLa Love

Oh, how we love this little Lalaloopsy dolls! While the big dolls are a little top heavy, and are hard to play with, the mini's are just adorable and so much fun. Emily loves just about anything in minature, so the little mini dolls are perfect for her! A friend even made her a Crumbs Sugar Cookie purse as a Secret Santa present that she keeps all her mini dolls in.

This sweet little lounge set was my last set created in 2010!! What a perfect way to end the year. (Emily actually did end 2010 in this set - she wore it to bed New Year's Eve!!)

Watch for some new Lalaloopsy sets coming soon!! I have a Bea Spellsalot set that is just waiting for pictures!!!

Harry Potter Cuties!

Another fun set!! This one is Emily's all time favorites! She's even worn it to school a few times. This was made back in the fall for our Florida trip. We got to spend an evening at a private party at Universal Studios during our trip, and Emily got alot of attention in this set. We had so much fun at Wizarding World - I hope to go back soon so we can spend the whole day at universal instead of just a few hours.
Once it warms up her in frigid Michiga, we'll go outside and take some better pictures and I'll eventually liest this set.

My Poor Neglected Blog

So it's been awhile since I've posted to my blog! With the ease of posting on Facebook, I've forgotten to update here too. I'm going to try to get back into blogging and hope to post weekly - well, at least monthly.
2010 was a fun and busy year for us. Listings were a little scarce. I had quite a few custom orders, and I had my own Disney trip to sew for!!
One of my favorite design of 2010 was my Princess set. I used some of my favorite shabby chic florals, paired them with some pastel polkadots, and added rows and rows of frayed ruffles!

One of my most requested sets has been the Peace, Love, Minnie
skirt set my daughter asked me to make. The design was actually a re-creation of a tee I had in the late 90's. Emily loves anything with a Peace sign on it, and even tweens like the denim skirt.

I've made some variations on the design and have made Peace, Love, Horses; Peace, Love, Texas; and even Peace, Love, American Girl!
My friend Marah was kind enough to send me some pictures that she had taken of her daughter's Peace, Love, Texas. Aren't the pictures stunning!!

Jessie Loves Woody!

We can't wait for the latest Toy Story movie hits the Big Screen! Of course we needed a set to wear to the premiere, and this is perfect! I'll make a 4th of July tee later, and Emily can wear the skirt with that too! Nothing like Mix and Match pieces!
Of course Emily decided Chrissa needed a matching set too! She even found a little hat for her to wear ;)
Pictures were taken at The Westland Historical Village.




Can't forget about Chrissa!

Join us in Underland!

We absolutely LOVED the new Alice in Wonderland movie! I knew I HAD to make a set featuring the new re-stylized characters! To say this set was a labor of love would be an understatement! I've had this in the planning stages for months. I could never decide on the perfect fabrics, and I bought at least 3 different lines of fabric before stumbling upon these gorgeous fabrics. I loved using denim in the design too.
And my most favorite thing of the whole set is without a doubt the adorable mini top hat! I knew I had to make a top hat to go with this set (especially since my model refuses to wear bows!!) So here it is! And you can find it on here on ebay too.

Another Sneak Peek!!

I'm having so much fun designing this set!! Emily loves it and she insisted on a matching hat. Ummmm...I've never made a top hat and really had no idea how to. Luckily I found a handy dandy pattern and came up with this...


I can't wait to take some modeled pictures!!

Lovin' La Vida


Oh, how I love the Vida! It's versatile, comfy and just plain adorable. I sometimes agonize over fabric choices for it, then all of a sudden it all comes together and I love the outcome!! Use lots of different fabrics and fun trims to make it fun and funky, or just a few of your favorites for something sweet and simple. I've even figured out a pattern for 18 inch dolls!
I'll be honest though, when I first saw the Vida I didn't like it. I had to put my own spin on it to fall in love with it. It's now my "go to" pattern. Perfect for BIG appliques, and I just love it worn as a tunic with jeans. Awesome for layering and adorable with leggings and a tee. Ahhhh, how I love the Vida :)




I can't wait to get started on my newest Vida creation - I wonder what it will be??
