Crazy Handmade Doll

Just a crazy doll I made.
Handmade Doll
The body fabric, which is pretty loud, 
has umbrellas printed all over it so I chose
 more subtle fabrics for her dress and pantaloons.
I sewed a piece of crochet edging to her forehead to represent a crown,
and the hair is three different colors of yarns with some pink ribbon thrown it.

Now if I could just teach her how to sew!

if anyone has a users manual for this machine that they would like to share?????
From what I can gather on the net,
 it's a Sewmor brand that Carl's put their name on.

Till next time, keep creating,

Waxahachie Junior Service League, Christmas Market Preparations

We had a fun and profitable day at The Texas Country Reporter Festival.
With the help of my grandson Brian and 
my daughter Ginger we sold lots of product, kept the money secure,
and generally had a great time.
I sold out of my full aprons and dolls and moved quite a bit of soap.
Needless to say I've been quite busy replenishing the stock
for The Junior Service League Christmas Market, December 6-7
at the Waxahachie Civic Center.

Halter Style Apron

This style apron, with it's halter top, seems to fit the broadest range of women.

But, I don't want just one style,
 so I'll be working on creating a more diverse selection.

The taggie monsters and ballerinas are getting some notice also.

Mini Christmas Stockings

I've also been working on my mini stockings,
I market these as gift bags.

Well, there's a lot yet to be done and only 
32 days left till show time.
Till next time,
happy creating!
