This is ADORABLE! We sewed this thing from the cutest fabric and did not use a pattern.
I am going to do another with a gathered skirt and fitted waist next, because I have the fabric left. You can’t have too many llama skirts.
I paired it with Mini Boden shirt and footless tights:
I bought a mini dress dummy mannequin that I can now use to show her how to drape and sew clothes. It feels good to be designing and sewing again!
I’ve decided to just sew her skirts and things now- I can control the quality and fit better this way. I love clothing and furniture design.
FUN FACT: I used to do both, once, in another lifetime. I mostly did reproduction reenactment clothing entirely by hand- and I once was the designer of doggie furniture in Oslo before it became fashionable!
She was a colorful alicorn (unicorn with wings) for Halloween this year. She made a little video while getting ready.
I used about 5 cans of Colorista color spray on her hair. Took about 30 min to wash out later.
Here are some highlights from trick or treat:
Getting ready- I was a Mommy Unicorn, she was the baby one.
Giving local Congressman Fred Upton major side eye. He didn’t even give her a pencil!!
She didn’t get a pencil. Maybe he could smell the Democrat or Libertarian on us.
having a particularly bad night: chest pains, shortness of breath, sweats, tachycardia.
Recovery from PEs is rough- and scary.
Luckily, tomorrow I see my new cardiologist about a holter monitor for the racing pulse.
This article helped me so much:
It’s a busy birthday week at my house- today Maisie turns 4! I don’t have any pics of her yet this morning, but wanted to update everyone on our projects (and my dad’s bday) this week.
Pic of Papa wearing Maisie’s hat 🙂 –
Maisie on my dad’s bday- she dressed as a ‘cowgirl ballerina’:
We build ultra realistic log cabin dollhouses for fun. I love doing miniature things. Maisie complained that her dollhouse cabins had no bathrooms- so my dad made an outhouse out of poplar, barn wood, and cedar shingles- he even made the handle for the door out of copper wire he hammered and aged!
I did the ‘poop’ and a snake to go in the 2-holer, out of polymer clay- and we have teeny antique (readable) Sears catalogs in there!
R made the base, it revolves- and painted it with milk paint.
R put the static grass down, but I did the rest of the landscaping and painting and stone crafting out of egg cartons- and I made ‘weeds’… it is a marvelous collaboration! I can’t wait til we surprise her with it later this afternoon!
She’s also getting an ant farm, which she asked for 🙂
Will update more later! xo
This woman sounds like me.
EXACTLY.LIKE.ME… EXCEPT she has more kids.
Oh, and no pulmonary emboli from her surgery.
I ALSO had a weird twin dream after!
this is getting tediously repetitive- found out the other day that my ovaries were about 10 yrs younger than the rest of me or more- and to not expect menopause for another 10 yrs or so, give or take.
Good thing I’ve no more uterus, or I could have been shooting out more babies far into my dotage!
