8 Weeks To Christmas! A Great Holiday EASY Sewing Pattern From Eden Ava Couture! Bring the Wow Factor!

One of the best sewing patterns I found last year was the Peppermint Snow Outfit by Eden Ava Couture. I purchased and sewed several of these outfits  last year and this pattern remains one of my most favorites.
This pattern includes the dress, tights, beret and fur wrap pattern pieces and is offered on pixiefaire for $7.99
I loved making the beret and wrap as well!
The step by step pattern is so easy to follow and even though this was one of my first knit fabric sewing experiences I really think it turned out well! 
So if you are looking to sew something for your dolls or the doll lover in your life this season that really has a WOW Factor check out Eden Ava's Peppermint Snow Outfit offered on Pixiefaire. You can view the pattern by clicking here.

My Custom Order From Jessie Raye's Etsy Shop Has Arrived!

Humor me today as I share part of my obsession for Dr. Who and Dolls. One of the best parts of being a Doll lover and blogger is the really talented people that I get to meet through my readers, my writing and following Etsy Shop owners who create for dolls.
I wrote to Jessie and asked her if this was even possible for her to create and she was outstanding to work with as always. These little fish fingers make me smile!
They even feel like fish fingers! I love that one of them looks like it has been dipped in the custard!
So if you are looking to have a custom doll food item created for your dolls or if you are looking to add some wonderful dolly food treats to your dolls collection be sure to contact Jessie Raye by clicking here. Let her know I sent you!
