I love the outfits created by Teresa and wanted to share with you a bit of her shop and history.
Teresa shared with me a bit about herself and I though you might enjoy it too!
" I love to make things - I dabble in silver smithing, sterling silver chain maille,
painting, silk dying/painting, knitting and of course sewing."
" For me making these dolls dresses is all about the fabric. I adore picking out fabrics and am also looking for new suppliers, either online or locally. (I just found a new quilt shop that happened to have 43% off everything sales going on the very day I walked in - man was that fun!!!!) Then thinking up how to use these new fabrics and making new designs. I seemed to be hooked on dresses right now. I'm looking forward to Halloween as I am thinking of some doll costumes."
"I am retired now so have time to work on my hobbies - I was a data cruncher at the local university - worked on gathering stats for reporting purposes."
"I have only the one doll right now - but would like to get some more - maybe some of the retired Year dolls."
"I was born in Australia (came here in 1972 with my husband - he is a University physics prof) but my mother always sewed and knit out of necessity rather than for fun - so I learned from her. Australia has an "Australian Girl Doll" which is a bit larger but by what I can tell they have only limited styles - one is not able to choose, hair, eyes etc as you can with AGD."
Karen's note you can visit Australian Girl by clicking here. I have Emily and I love her! She is so well made!
I hope you enjoyed today's post and I hope you will check out Blinkers Oh! Etsy Shop.
