2019 ideas from Susan P Blog

I actually think this is the first time I write ‘2019’ anywhere, and it is already the 10th of January! Yes, it is here. It arrived quietly in our house where everyone went to bed around 10 ish. I was awake at midnight to send messages to my children spread all over the world, and to family in South Africa

The year started with us giving the lounge and computer room a good clean. We washed the carpets, washed windows, polished everything, the new curtains (which I bought early in 2018) went up. Rubbish into the rubbish bags. It looks ...

More Beauty from the Houston Quilt Exhibit from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

If you were really with me (Teri) for this little tour of beauty found at the International Quilt Market and Festival exhibit in Houston, you would be running back and forth throughout the exhibit. Today, I have chosen a few things that especially caught my eye. We will actually be looking at a number of separate displays. Enjoy the eye candy!

You probably know that I love appliqué album quilts, but how wonderful is one that tells the story of one's life. I fell in love with this quilt, and felt almost as though I had met Barbara. What ...

I used Simplicity pattern #1332 .  It was a pretty easy pattern.  I also made a matching outfit for her doll.

Simplicity 8349 Tweaked Just a Little from Sew Kansas

Here is Simplicity Pattern 8329.  I made this dress just like the pattern with the addition of a 1" band and some piping to length the bodice.  Of course she needed a matching dolly dress!


Doll dress is Simplicity 8360.  Both of these were pretty easy to make.

Kay, The Quilter Is A Real Doll! from Quilts + Color

image
A few days ago Jamie Fingal posted a picture of a doll made in her likeness on Facebook.
This one was made in my likeness years ago by Delores Jacobs. I love her.
I have several of her other dolls and Santa’s.
For this one I supplied the dress fabrics and the piece of tatted antique lace.
I have always intended to make a real pieced miniature quilt to put in her hoop.
At the time my hair was red….and I still am a red head at heart!
I never intended to collect dolls, but there are so ...

Five? from From the Strawberry Patch...

Five? Really?? The passage of time seems to be measured in days rather than years to this Nana. How could time be passing so quickly? Yes, our youngest granddaughter is five years old. January 2013 We had a fun day shopping for clothes and accessories for her newest doll, Kit, on Monday. Our trips together to the American Girl store have become a birthday tradition. My dad calls it

Doll’s dresses and smocking from Susan P Blog

I love smocking. I also enjoy making doll’s clothes. Therefore I suppose it is quite obvious that I should do both

Cut out five little doll’s dresses today and popped all of them through the pleater – now just to smock and then make the dresses

Dolls clothes from Susan P Blog

I have quite a lot of off-cuts which cannot be used for dresses, not even for a baby, and decided to use some of it by making clothes for an 18″ doll, similar to the American Dolls. I am actually hoping to make more and then sell it (not sure how that will work as I have never sold anything I’ve made). Because I am planning to sell the clothes I took extra care to work very neat and tidy, which also meant I used the iron more than when I make dresses for little girls

It is funny ...
