Projects? What are those?

Funny, I set up a blog about my projects and things I create for my Etsy page (see linky doo app on the side there) and yet I don't show anything I've been working on. Logic, I have none. So, I thought I would share a few projects that I finished within the last week.

An adorable felt doll I made for a friend's daughter. I really love making dolls. They are fun and the best part is when I know the children that receive them adore playing with them. It warms the cockles of my heart. Or whatever cockles are.

I started making little girl's reversible dresses. I love them!! I can make them up to a size 6. I am trying to figure out the best way to sell these. Do I show a sample of the dress and then when a customer purchases it, they give the size of the dress? This way, every dress is made per order. This would give a 1-2 week shipping time. Or do I create the dresses and have a variety on hand in different sizes and sell them by size only for fast shipping? Thoughts? I love this dress for the simple reason that a child will get a ton of use out of it. It's two dresses in one and as the little girl grows that it will become a shirt when too short for a dress. Love it!!!! I hope to get the dresses up for sale on my Etsy site soon. If you are interested in one before I get my act together, just email me.

Smootches! (on a side note, it may be wise for me to ease up on the caffeine.......)


  1. You are so talented.

    Tried to come up with a wise ass comment around cockles but I've got nothing. Very tired today.

  2. Ooo... your doll is so cute!

    And I love the dresses. Heck, I wouldn't mind having one myself. They look so nice and cool and I like the idea of reversible. Do you use one piece of material or do you sandwich two together (eliminating the need for a slip?).

    Very cute!

  3. Gorgeous! I love reversible dresses. My girls each had one when they were little. In my daughters experience when selling her dresses on Etsy it was best to have a few on hand in different sizes. People tended to buy if they could have it straight away. Although she still got some custom orders too.

  4. Love the reversible dress! I say make them as they are ordered.

  5. certainly would use your daughter to model them
