Cheer Leader

I totally forgot to show you the cheer leader outfit I knitted! This pattern is from the fun to knit doll clothes book. Like most of the patterns in the book it was simple to make, but still very cute. 🙂

In the mood to sew

Felt like sewing lately. Like before it’s hand sewn, not machine. I really only like using my sewing machine for larger projects, like clothes for an adult or older child. Sometimes I’ll use it if I need to make several things and I’m in a time crunch. Other than that it’s hand sewing for me. Just something about it I find relaxing. One of the things I’ve sewn is a doll dress for my 14.5″ fisher price “little mommy sweet as me” doll. The dress is from a McCall’s sewing pattern. The pattern number is (M4338) and the dress is listed as (D). The other thing I made is another “dinky dinky” from dinkybaby.com I also knitted him a little bear to hold. That was a free knitting pattern I got from here. I used sock yarn and size 2 needles to make him. I also cut the numbers in the pattern in half to get him the size I needed him to be.

Here is the latest thing I’ve made. This pattern is another one from the “Fun to knit doll clothes” book. It’s one of my favorite pattern books for sure. Lots of simple to make designs. Good for any skill level. I have no idea what kind of yarn that is that I used. It’s from a huge ball that my husband found on the clearance aisle at Walmart and got it for me. I do know it’s considered bulky weight.

Birthday Gift This Year.

My new 18″ doll

I’m turning 40 this year. I would have thought by now that I would be a grown up, but I guess not, because I got a dolly for my birthday and I couldn’t be happier about it. LOL! She is a Journey Girl brand sold at Toys R Us. 18″ tall with red hair and green eyes.
