Our fairy of the month is an adorable little group of fairies.
I am enchanted with the look, price and quality of these Hearts for Hearts girls. You can find them at places like Target, Amazon
and Toys R Us. Their faces are cute, their bodies are nicely proportioned and they are a perfect sewing size – small enough to use a lot less fabric, yet not so small that the pieces are hard to handle.
I resized the most popular fairy elements from the bigger dolls to fit them and put them all together in one pattern which you can see here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/110989675/fairy-sewing-pattern-for-hearts-for If you already have the “big dolls” set and just want the re-sized pattern pieces, you can get it from me via email for $4.99.
I don’t love the shoes that come with them, however, and I made some snuggly boots (free pattern below) sized for H4H which I adapted from ones I had made for KnC/MAC/Journey Girls. (you can see the boots on the KnC- click photo to enlarge)
The Fall Jackets pattern (on Galina, above) includes pattern pieces for the H4H too, and if you already bought the Heirloom/Little Girl Goth set and forgot to ask for the smaller pieces, just email me your etsy order # and I’ll send them to you.
A big “THANK YOU!” to the photo contest entrants and Congratulations to our first photo contest winner! It was so close (2 votes), I felt the runner-up deserved a prize too. So Jessica gets the dress of her choice and Margo gets a coupon to my etsy store for the pattern of her choice. See the winning entry here: Photo Contest Winner
My husband says my posts are too long…let’s see if you’re still reading… 🙂 What will the free pattern for December be? You get to choose! Santa is bringing me a Blythe clone called “Blybe.” I know, opinions on Blythe dolls range from “adorable” to “scary” but once you start liking them it’s hard to remember a time when you found them creepy!
Anyway, I bought a LOVELY Japanese book of patterns for her, but since I can’t use them yet I’m redrafting the patterns I like for the Kidz/Sasha. Post a comment by Nov 16th with your vote and the winner will be the free pattern for December! (yes, redrafted to fit our 16″-18″ girls)
