notebook cover

I have a boring little notebook that I have with me most of the time (at my desk or in my bag).  I’ve been using it for a long time and I’m nearing the end of the pages, so I decided I wanted to spruce things up a little for my next notebook.  I had […]

sleeping bunnies

A decided Max and Maggie were going to go to bed this morning, so I got to get a picture of them wearing their nightgown and pajamas (Maggie apparently also likes to wear necklaces to bed; the bunnies are borrowing doll Cara’s ripple blanket that  I made awhile ago).  For the nightgown, I just did […]

maggie bunny’s brother max

I finished Maggie Bunny’s brother, Max, using Alicia Paulson’s wonderful pattern here,  and my own materials.  I ordered the felt for Max’s body from this store on Etsy, which I’m pretty sure is the same brand included in Alicia’s kit (if not, it’s of very similar quality).  Max is a heathered gray.   For the shirt, […]

winter clothes for the first day of spring

We got a big snowstorm yesterday, so we’re all still wearing winter clothes unfortunately, including J’s and A’s dolls Alexander and Cara.  J and A had requested matching outfits for their dolls and these are the winter clothes I made them a couple of months ago.  I’m looking forward to making some spring/summer clothes soon, […]

Maggie bunny

  I finished Maggie bunny last night, using Alicia Paulson’s wonderful kit.  Although I have made lots of doll clothes, this was my first time making a stuffed animal and I really enjoyed it.  I definitely did not do a “perfect” job with everything, but overall, I’m very happy with how Maggie turned out.  My […]

girl and doll sweaters

I made A and her doll, Cara, coordinating sweaters.  A’s is Linda Permann’s Swingset Cardigan, using Paton’s Grace yarn in Viola.  I’ve made this pattern twice and I highly recommend it.  I love it in the Paton’s Grace yarn, too – it’s mercerized cotton so it gives the sweater a bit of a polished and […]
