Crafting on!

I'm linking up with Nicole today for {crafting on} Tuesday. This is how I've kept myself busy while waiting for my spinning wheel to get here.

I've made more doll shirts in the last week than I ever hoped to. I'm not a fan of sewing clothes - big or small. Evidently, I'm also not very good at it. Here's the kicker - these are all "prototypes" and none of them fit the intended doll. I think I've finally gotten something close to fitting. But sheesh! First I went with the trusty pattern by Adirondack Patterns, but it wasn't working for this particular doll (she has a lot of hair and nothing wanted to fit over it). So I've looked around, found nothing, and had to make it up as I go. I've never cut, folded, pinned, ironed, and sewn so much in so few days.

And another mermaid tail. It's a bit bigger than the other two and isn't a totally natural yarn, but I think the sparkly bits and the colors are just too perfect for a sea lady. Don't forget to enter the giveaway at This Cosy Life for a chance to win one of my mermaid dolls.

There's also the giveaway on my blog for a crochet mason jar cozy. I think I'm going to write up another tutorial for a to-go cup cozy soon, too.

And yes, there will definitely be pictures of my new spinning wheel when it gets here this evening!


  1. Did it get there? I can't wait to see it.

  2. I followed you from Frontier Dreams. Well Iam loving that mushroom print. I am certain it would look gorgeous on one of Bunny's dresses! Here is my most recent project: http://likemamalikedaughter.blogspot.com/2012/04/how-to-tuesday-bunnys-birthday-dress.html

  3. I second that "loving that mushroom print!"
