Printable books

Many of you have purchased 1:6 scale “books” from me over the years. I started making them because I wanted some for a diorama I was using and couldn’t find any I liked for a reasonable price. I love the vintage books with beautiful illustrations on the front, so I collected images, took photos of books in antique shops, and created a library of my own. I wrapped the covers around little wood blocks and sold them in sets by color. Alas, my supplier for the little wood blocks is no longer stocking them. So I’ve decided to make my books available as printable pdf files. I’ve created pages (excerpted from Wuthering Heights), and instructions for how to print and create your own books. The pdf files are still sorted and sold by color, so the interior decorator in you can color coordinate with your mini rooms. Available to download now from my Etsy shop.

Irlande for Barbie and friends

I’ve been busy sewing to get ready for the GAW Barbie Convention in April, so I haven’t been posting many dresses lately, but here’s a new one I just listed in my Etsy shop. It’s inspired by a 1957 Christian Dior design. It’s hand sewn from clary sage silk taffeta from Silk Baron.

2024 Hankie Chic mini calendars available now

I sold out of my 2023 calendars before Christmas last year, so I ordered a larger quantity of my 2024 calendars. Calendars are designed by me and feature photos of my one of a kind dresses for Barbie and friends. These are professionally printed on premium card stock and spiral bound for ease of use. At just 6” x 4”, they fit nicely into a purse or satchel. And they make great table gifts for your next doll convention. Calendars are available now in my Etsy shop.
