Dolls For Sale!!

It had to happen sooner or later...I have too many dolls! So over the next few weeks, I'll be purging a few at a time. It is very hard for me to let any go...but I just can't have so many. The first doll up for sale is my Mod Molly. She was one of the first dolls for I bought and her coloring was just never for me. I've had a bit of a phobia of selling dolls on the forums (Bad Dolly Deals Nightmares!!) but I'm just going to have to get over that. Mod Molly is listed at Plastic Paradise, http://plasticparadise.forumotion.com/castaways-f6/for-sale-nrfb-mod-molly-t16977.htm. Other dolls I'm considering selling: Heather Sky (NRFB), Friendly Freckles (NRFB), Cap Chat (NRFB), Can Can Cat, Aubrena, and maybe a couple of others. I need Dolly Collectors' Anonymous or something...so hard to let any out of my hands!!

Last April Update!

I cannot believe April is almost over already!! The year is flying by at an alarming rate. Another month and the kids will be out of school and our family will be headed to the beach for a lovely (I hope!) vacation. I have much to do in the next few weeks!

I've been working hard in the sewing room to add some new dresses to my shop. I have too many ideas and not enough time to translate them all into completed dolly fashions. But I am trying! Keep an eye on my shop for more updates in the next few weeks. I've made it a goal to add a greater variety of items to the shop more frequently. So check back often - you never know what you might find tomorrow!!

A couple of recent additions:

That's Emma, modeling two of my recent dresses. She is a stock Welcome Winter and I just love her!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please take the time to leave a comment; I'd love to hear from you! And if you have anything you'd like to see in my shop - please let me know.

New Girls and New Dresses!

My goodness - it's been a long time since I've updated my blog!! I've been busy taking care of lots of non-dolly related things lately. But I started sewing again last week and I've made some new dresses for my shop! Here are Sorbet (Simply Guava) and Sherbert (Simply Mango)in bright geometric print mod mini dresses:

Stop by the shop if you haven't been there lately! I've added a number of new dresses in the last two weeks and have more cut out and waiting to be sewn. I've been buying lots of dollies and fabric lately and I have so many ideas rattling around in my head - if only I had time to sit and create them all!!

Girls in Pink!

I love pink! It is so warm and happy, just what is needed for these cold and dreary February days. So I dug through my stash of fabrics to find some pink fabrics and made up a series of dresses for Blythe for my shop. Please have a look; some sold quickly and can be seen in my sold items. I'm happy to take orders for any of the sold dresses. These were lots of fun to make. I enjoyed finding the buttons and buckles and ribbons to add just the right finishing touches for each dress.

Next up for the shop: more dresses for Blythe and my first dresses for PukiFee and Lati Yellow. I've been fine tuning the pattern for the tiny dolls and I think I've about got it the way I want. I do have some other sewing projects lined up for this week, too. A t-shirt quilt and my swap quilt for Round 8 of the Doll Quilt Swap. Looks like a busy week ahead!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a great week!!

This is one of the dresses I recently added to my shop. I just love how it turned out. I had been looking for a coordinating fabric for some time; I finally gave up and put it with solid black. I think it gives the babydoll dress a little more sophisticated look.

Stop by the shop for a closer look at this dress and the other ones I just added.

Don't forget to check the sold items -- I'm happy to make a dress just for you if I still have the fabric!

Shop Update!

I've been busily sewing some new dresses for Blythe! I hope to update the shop Thursday or Friday. I have some really cute fabrics from my stash that I've finally decided to use. I have a problem cutting some fabrics, just can't do it. I see them and think "Cute Blythe dress!" and buy the fabric. Then I can't cut it...But my stash has reached problem status and so some fabrics are finally becoming Blythe dresses! I'm making another of these cake dresses (Penelope will not give this one up!); there's one with puppies and one with cupcakes...the fabrics are cute and colorful. Little bits of fun in candy colors...coming soon!

As always, I'm happy to take commissions. Just send me a message here or through Etsy.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Coming soon to Little Whimsies - outfits for PukiFee and Lati Yellow! My girls are wearing dresses that I've been working on; a couple adjustments to the patterns and we'll be ready to go! I just love these little dolls - so much fun and so, so sweet!! I guess I need to buy them more shoes...

Happy New Year!


Wishing everyone the very best new year, and decade, too!

To get ready for a new year, I am having a sale in my shop. Sale prices are good through the end of today. Why not pop by and have a look? It's too cold here to go outside! Tomorrow I will start making new items! So excited to try some new things!!

I will also begin introducing clothing for a few other dolls, including PukiFee and Lati Yellow, Tiny Betsy McCall, Wonder Frog and Emerald Witch. Now, I'm only one person, so I don't think I will manage to keep the shop fully stocked for all of these dolls, but I hope to sew for a few at a time throughout the year. I've got lots of ideas and it will be fun to create some new things for a wider selection of dollies!

Happy 2010!
