I found a fantastic tutorial over at Craftiness Is Not Optional. My daughter is forever undressing her Barbies and losing their clothes, and rather than be naked (or in the usual skimpy clothes) I decided to find a sweeter, classier alternative. And here it was – along with some other Barbie clothes tutorials I will be trying today – a few skirts, tops and a ball gown.
My dresses didn’t turn out the best, but hey, not bad for a first attempt.
They were so much fun to make, why not pop over to http://www.craftinessisnotoptional.com/2010/08/barbie-dress-tutorial.html and make some yourself 🙂
So I felt like making a change from the usual dolls and hairclips I make, so I decided to make some little felt guitars! I had a look through some of my partner’s Metallica books (he’s a musician luckily haha), and found the inspiration for these two little dudes.
It took a little while to make the design and sew the strings, but I’m pretty happy with how they turned out.
Extra points if you know what the guitars are called!
This is a Zombie doll that I created a few years ago. He took a long time to design and make, but it was SO much fun, especially making his face.
Tell me what you think. Do you like zombies? Is he something you’d play with? Would you let your children play with him?
