Bleuette!

Standard

So I took a few weeks off from the blog, and had some time off work, plus a major snowstorm kept me housebound and what did I do with that time?  Well, there are a couple major projects in the works, and I thought I’d give myself a break from them and…um…sew some other stuff.  (Yes, I’m aware how silly that is!)  Also I did a huge amount of digitizing of embroidery designs and my Bleuettes are thrilled!

Yours might be too, because there’s a whole new collection in my etsy shop of Bleuette machine embroidery designs in pes format.

Yep.  You can now make your Bleuette an incredible, embroidered wardrobe in a fraction of the time it would take to do it by hand!  If your machine uses another format, there’s FREE conversion software here: http://www.wilcom.com/en-us/products/truesizerproducts.aspx

Are you running to get it right now?  Use the coupon code 20off20 to get 20% off it or any other purchase of $20 or more through Sunday!

Want to try my one of my favorites from this set?

Don’t have a Bleuette?  It will also fit Paola Reina las Amigas and Corolle Cheries but NOT Hearts for Hearts

If this dress looks familiar, that’s because I did it for larger dolls here: https://jenwrenne.wordpress.com/2015/02/26/hurry-up-spring/

Hey, look what I found!

Standard

A few weeks ago I was reminded of a bunch of Addy patterns that I had forgotten I had made.  I was looking for them on my computer, along with some Karito patterns I remembered and also couldn’t find, but I did randomly find this:

Yet another set of patterns I had forgotten I made.  (Makes me want to open every file in that directory and see what other treasures are lurking there!)  It’s a set of summer patterns originally for Daisy, a doll made by Kestner in 1911 and given away by Ladies’ Home Journal as a prize to girls who sold magazine subscriptions.  Illustrations are by Sheila Young, the artist of the Lettie Lane paper dolls  I drafted these to fit my Daisyette, so these patterns will work for her or Bleuette.  You can enlarge them at 150% to fit Sasha/Kidz n Cats or the actual-size Daisy, although you will probably need to lengthen the skirts a bit and possibly shorten the long sleeves.  DOWNLOAD IT HERE and save it while you can, as I may eventually start taking down old posts/files to make room for new stuff.  Enjoy!
