Fashion in Miniature

So, what have I been up to? Well, here is an example. Here we have Tyler Wentworth, okay, two Tyler Wentworths, a redhead and a brunette, sporting the latest Becca creations.

The brunette wears a sweet little outfit in red cotton with tiny little hearts. I didn't expect the skirt to be so full, but sometimes these things happen. The best part? She's wearing the cutest little brocade coat.

The redhead has on a hand knitted lacy top along with another red coat, this one with the brocade as lining instead of as the shell of the coat.

The purpose of this miniature couture? Well, partly because I always seem to pick up dolls that are homeless and clothes-less. The other reason is this is a great way to work through those little bits of fabric left over from real projects. The tiny bit of brocade I used for these wonderful coats came from a ren-faire bodice I made for a friend years ago. I can't be positive, but I think the lining is from the only wedding dress I ever made.

I'm not sure what my next project will be. I think I'll stick with little fashion for a little while. Maybe if I get really adventuresome, I'll venture into the miniature shoe business.

Vacation and Crafting

I know I haven't been posting. Partly because I haven't had much to say, part of it is because I've been spending my vacation time doing other things. Last night, I did get on a crafting roll. I realized at about midnight that I should be sleeping instead of sewing. I wound another bobbin and called it a night. Today, I will try to get some pictures up so you can see what I've been up to.

Doctor Who Scarf update: I have been working on this project a little here and there. Since my sewing table is covered with ribbon, fabric and other stuff related to sewing, I will not be laying it out to take a picture. I'm almost afraid to measure it. I'm pretty sure I've made it a couple more feet of the pattern. I'm more than half way throught the pattern, so it should be all downhill from here.

Mid-Winter Gifting

I know I haven't been posting. I don't want anyone to think that I haven't been doing anything. I have, really. I've been doing things for gifting. No way can I post those pictures. You all will have to wait until after the gifting is done.

Let's just say, I've finished four items and am beginning work on the next couple items. Pictures will just have to wait.
