W.I.P. Wednesday + My 100th Post!

Hello All. 

I noticed today that this will be my 100th post. I also noticed that I now have 100 followers on Pinterest. I call that a happy coincidence!

I actually never thought I would have come this far when I started this blog. Initially, I just wanted to use the "non-baby" part of my brain and share my creative side along the way. I never thought that I'd actually have followers and meet so many nice online friends who share the same interests as me. It's really been a rewarding journey.

Ok, enough of the mushy stuff and on to finished makes!

1. I made 3 little dollies as gifts for little miss (center) and her friends. Because my daughter is a mixed ethnicity (Filipino/Caucasian) I have a hard time finding manufactured dolls that resemble her in any way. Thus, I'm forever pinning doll patterns that let you customize eye color, skin color, hairstyle, etc. This particular pattern is from Sew News and dolls are donated to a good cause. It was great fun creating a doll for each girl.

3. I popped in the the Selvedge Magazine Christmas fair on Sunday and came away with some beautiful fabric from Karen over at Bluebery Park

3. More softies for the Christmas Fair! 

4. Finally, this is how I get some sewing done while little miss "helps" mommy. I often print off a coloring page of whatever project I'm working on so that little miss can work right along side me.

Until next time. Linking up with...

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. Printing the same thing off to colour is a great idea! I have tried sewing with a 6 year old on my knee and unfortunately it doesn't work very well - I can't see where I'm sewing! Love the dollies and stuffies x

  2. I love those dolls - what a great idea to customise them! You could set up a custom listing on Etsy...

  3. Love those dolls! What a great idea to have your daughter "help" like that. :)

  4. I love your sweet little dolls. Congratulations on your 100th post! VERY EXCITING! Keep up the great work.

  5. cute cute cute little dollys!
