Did you miss me? Probably you didn’t notice I was gone… :) Just as my neck was finally feeling better enough to sew after my car accident, I was drowned in IEP paperwork and parent-teacher conferences, so you’ve all been craftier than me lately! Here are some new ideas people have shared to inspire you: (I did my best to link to their creators or where these were originally posted, if one of these is yours and doesn’t link right please let me know!)
And Eva-Lotta did a very nice job sewing faux leather to make this toasty jacket and skirt for her KnC:
Marge made the Fall gathered pocket skirt for Spring. Modeling it is her new Toys R Us Journey Girl, and if you’ve ever debated getting an inexpensive 18″ doll you just can’t go wrong with them. They are leaps and bounds nicer than the Target dolls, and cost only a little more (around $32). All of them have beautiful face sculpts and eyes, with a solid neck plate which allows for wearing tank tops without a fabric body showing AND gives them tilt-able heads. Added bonus? They’re a bit smaller than AGs, so if you make something that comes out a little too tight, the JGs are thrilled to have it. :)
Carol made two sizes of the Navajo outfit to go with a storyline for AG and H4H. She says “This is my imagining of the Route 66 adventure Molly went on, and that the little Navajo girl, whose clothes Molly admired, actually gave her an outfit to wear!”
Can you guess what pattern this next one came from?
Believe it or not, Elisana used the Halloween pattern to make this cute reversible jacket! (Click pix to see more on her blog)

Speaking of Facebook, Jasmine was in Chichicastenango, Guatemala for the last contest. Kayla and Clemetine were “vacationing” there when they met her and they made a scrapbook of their travels you can print and fold into a doll-size book. Folding instructions are here scroll to the page that says: “Folding the magazines and diary”
And an embroidery design I digitized based on photos of the “real thing”. One will fit in a 4×4 hoop, but requires re-hooping. The other is for a 5×7. I think I have a way to post these now, so you don’t have to email me for them, let’s hope this works!!

A bunch of fabulous new patterns and another “Where’s Jasmine” contest are in the works for (I hope) the end of March…stay tuned!
