From My Sewing Room this Christmas

My sewing room this Christmas season was working overtime.  There were many days I would begin sewing early in the morning and finish up for the day watching David Letterman.  When it became clear to me that I might not be able to finish all of my promised orders, I enlisted the help of my mom.  I truly don't know what I would have done with out her help.
Sewing these little dolls brings me such joy.  My Etsy shop has allowed me to meet so many wonderful people some from as far away as Australia.  Each one with there own special requests and stories to share about the precious child that would be receiving one of my dolls.  As I packaged them for shipping,  I thought how awesome it was that a doll that I created would be waiting under their tree Christmas morning.  It brought back the child-like wonder of the season that can  sometimes be lost as my own son has now grown into adulthood. Sewing these dolls is special to me in so many ways.  I would love to share with you a sample of what kept me so busy these last several months........




















It was great fun sewing dolls for others to give as gifts but it was even more fun to sew dolls for me to give to my loved ones :)
A Ballerina for my sweet Emily

A cowgirl for Kristen
A little Paris lady for Lauren
Just a few of my creations from 2012.  I have already started filling orders for the new year and am excited to share those with you as well.  So off I go to sew.......Thanks for stopping by ----wishing you a happy day

Hello, I am in the process of creating dolls and doll houses. Your dolls are exceptional. Just wanted to offer some advise in one small area. When you sew the legs into the body, instead of laying the ends of the legs flat the way that you do, if you will roll the edge until the seam for the back of the leg is in the center of the leg and not on the side, the feet will lay better. Hope this is of benefit to you. If you don't understand what I am talking about, you could email me from my site: http://childrenscastle.net Brenda
