Day 37 of 61 Days of Martie!

First, a giveaway reminder! Only today and tomorrow left to win this lovely Gene doll!

We're working hard on matching dresses for two American Girl dolls. One is done, we're onto the second. Stitch faster, Martie! ;D

I mostly sew by hand on doll-scale things, despite now having 5 (possibly 6) sewing machines (inherited 2, one's Sam's, one's broken, etc). I don't mark the seam lines, I just wing it. That's what 40 years of practice can do.
There will be pics when they're done. I have to confess, they're a technical exercise more than a creative one, as they're vintage cut-and-sews from Daisy Kingdom. The first is gorgeous, though, so I'm glad I decided to do these.


  1. How fun! I love that you and Martie sew together!!!! I also love your comment policy above. :-)

    Have a great day!

  2. Cute! She looks like she's working hard :)

  3. Love the "wing it" comment lol. I do the same with crochet but haven't been crocheting for 40 years. Probably 20 by now. Didn't start crocheting will I was in my 20's. I was with a bbs and someone from it taught me :) Can't wait to see them finished


Please leave your thoughts. I don't expect universal love but I do expect civil commentary. If you're a hater, don't play. Thanks!
