Last year around Thanksgiving, my sweet sister-in-law Chris, brought me a box of vintage sewing goods from her Mom, some of these sewing pieces belonged to her Grandmother. I instantly fell in love but didn't have much of a desire at that time to create any new dolls. All that love for creating went away for awhile after Dave passed away. I put the box away. Since I started sewing again a couple of months ago, I remembered the box and brought it out and opened it again . .
I found this vintage navy collar, looks like it came off a dress or a blouse . . it's so pretty. I ran over to the fabric store and found some fabric to match pretty close to the same color with a simple pattern on it for a new creation.
My newest creation . . . I added this adorable elephant to one of my dolls. Mom and I went to a rummage sale last Saturday and found a bunch of sequins and sewing goodies, I also found this black and pink salmon color throw in the background, all for six dollars. Rummage sales are so much fun. I added a few of those sequins to my elephant. Ok . . . time to go back to the sewing machine.
Here's the girls . . . little bit of a prairie thing going on . . the one in the gray dress is called "Kitty Kitty", she is wearing a brooch with the word cherish and is holding a gray kitty, the red one is called "Key to your Heart", she holding a purple velvet heart with a vintage key in her hand and the maroon one is called "Sweet Ellie", she's holding the posies.
Spirit filled, always loving on my kids, my heart goes to anything tattered, something about being worn out I love. Living this life of mine with a special someone by my side, feeling very blessed to have him too. Passionate about sewing and arts. firstname.lastname@example.org
