I found this hankie bordered with petit point flowers. I decided to use only the border to make the skirt … I just sewed strips of border together and then cut out the skirt from the new piece of fabric I made. The coordinating blouse is a made from silk tissue taffeta. A rhinestone brooch accents the portrait collar. Available now in my Etsy shop.
Hallmark introduced their 2020 Keepsake ornaments this weekend. These can be a treasure trove of 1:6 scale miniatures for your fashion doll dioramas. I’ve picked up a few so far. Here are a couple of them.
First, in honor of Princess Beatrice’s wedding, this adorable wedding cake.
And then, in the frisky kittens series, this cute kitten and hamster.
I found this lovely hand appliqued and embroidered hankie in shades of blue and green. I didn’t have any blue fabric on hand that coordinated nicely, so I pulled out my green fabric to find this fresh lime Dupioni silk that made the blue flowers pop. I made separates so you can mix and match with other pieces. And wouldn’t you know, I already had a rhinestone brooch made up in blue and green that worked perfectly with the ensemble. Available now in my Etsy shop.
I have a few more Barbie print face masks made up. Limited quantities. Available now in my Etsy shop.
I got more of the new Barbie print fabric with the Warhol-inspired vintage Barbie portraits. So I’ve framed some more prints. Each frame is 3” x 4” and the image is 2” x 3”. You’ll find two listings in my shop; one with portraits on a hot pink background and one with portraits on a white background. Limited quantities available. Buy them individually or collect them all.
I decided to make a new pattern. This off the shoulder sheath is hand sewn from silk tissue taffeta and fully lined in blush cotton.
I repainted my dollar store Barbie miniature yesterday. What do you think?
I stopped in my local dollar store this afternoon and found these miniature Barbie figurines. They had a variety—from chef Barbie to Baseball Barbie—but I thought this one was the cutest. I’m considering repainting her. Maybe all white or all gold. Or maybe just repaint her outfit so she looks more like a porcelain tchotchke. Thoughts?
You know us fabric hoarders—we can’t bear to throw out usable scraps of fabric. After I had made a bunch of face masks from the new Riley Blake Barbie print fabric, I had all these odd size scraps left over. The images make me think of Andy Warhol portraits. So … I framed them! In Barbie scale frames, of course. The framed image is 4” x 3” —just perfect for your Barbie diorama. They are available individually or collect them all.
