A dream come true

I have always loved learning and doing all kinds of crafts. Miniatures, painting, decoupage, beading, scrapbooking, crotchet, sewing, you name it, I've tried it.
Friends would ask me if I could make this or fix that, and I'd usually take it on. For instance, this picture on my shop bio is a dog shirt I made for a chihuahua. Now I have my own business where I make beautiful things all the time! What fun!
Usually I repurpose or upgrade used clothing for my Barbie creations. You can get a lot of mileage out of an old shirt or dress! And sometimes I buy things just for a certain feature or trim on them. But sometimes I buy new fabric that catches my eye.
Now when it comes to Barbie and fashion doll clothes, I like to make what I would like to wear. (If I had a figure like hers, that is!) I do make gowns and special occasion clothes, but I like everyday and office clothes best. But that may change next month! I'm always trying new stuff out for Barbie, tweaking patterns, and mixing them. So keep checking back for more of my creations!
I also like to take old dolls and clean them up, wash their hair and curl it, sometimes cutting it or giving them perms. I want to learn how to repaint faces and reroot hair next!
Thanks for stopping by!

    Rose is an expert quilter. She is in her 90's and has been making quilts her whole life. When I saw the mini quilts she had made, I thought, "Hmmmm. Barbie could use some quilts for her bed." So when I broached the subject with her, she agreed!
