Year in Barbie

Wednesday, December 31, 2014

This year I grew in love with creating Barbie designs. Something about sewing something so small is cool to me. I wanted to showcase my favorite designs of the year.









All of these outfits found new homes in the new year!

Vintage Hang Tag Set DIY Idea

Tuesday, December 30, 2014


I love to add cute little tags to the crochet hats I make for photographers. It' makes a perfect touch to a certain gift.

If you ever go to Joanns or any other craft store make you print out a 40% off coupon. This way you're saving money.

This paper actually has an awesome texture to it. You can feel the swirls on the pink side and the texture on the other end. Pretty cool

The paper was 2 for $1 at Joanns!

Happy Holidays everyone!

DIY: Dressform Christmas Tree Idea

Wednesday, December 10, 2014

So I decided to dress up my dressform for the holiday season. This is just an idea for those who have a sewing room, and want to dress it up for the holidays!

No pins needed. The garland is wire so if you tighten it around your dressform it wont fall off. The ornament hooks were used on the bottom where I hung up the ornaments I got from Big Lots last year.  It's dressed up with real candy canes I got from Stop and Shop. Yay Star-bursts!

December Shopping Swing

Monday, December 1, 2014

It's December! Christmas is in full swing here, and we're decorating, and some how turning this place into a Christmas Wonderland. I started and finished Bean and Sprouts Christmas shopping on black Friday after work. I picked up a BOGO on transformer toys, and found official Pillow Pets at Five Below. How exciting.

So far I spent less that $50 on over $150 dollars worth of stuff. I didn't wake up at a crazy time, I waited until I got out of work, and I didn't wait in any lines either. So it was worth it!

I'm taking it easy for the holiday season, and having fun. Smiles all the way through the season!

Pattern DVD?

I was thinking maybe I can create a CD or DVD with my original barbie patterns. I'm sure many others like it may exists, but hey... you never know. Maybe I make stuff that is cool and someone else wants to make it in their own colors and fabrics.

I kinda wanted to combine all the vintage barbie patterns I have as well. I have to check the copyright law's on that, but I'm sure the ones I already have were made before the whole copyright thing came into play.

Who knows, right now it's just an idea, but I would love to do that.

What I Purchased: Holiday Edition

First Holiday purchase of the season! Joann Fabrics 1 Yard, $6.99! I'm so excited to see what I create with this.
