Petite Blythe…a day for celebration

I have to admit I have been sucked into the world that is Blythe. I’ve searched the pages of ebay, www, & flickr trying to decide which one I want. Although the price has me cringing, the endless ides keep me excited.

I eventually will get a 12″ model. If I am going to spend that much money, I want to make sure it’s one that I want. In the meantime, I’ve ventured into the world of Petite Blythe dolls.

I am partial to dark haired dolls. Found this cutie and could not resist. Only after purchasing her did I find a hawaiian one just as cute from the same seller. I shall be purchasing her in 2 paychecks. He he he.

It’s sad when you are planning your next doll purchase (fix) around your paydays. I love her and she is sitting on my monitor here at work. I cannot wait until I get a chance to make her some clothes.

Wish me luck

Ribbon Bracelet

Ribbon Bracelet Originally uploaded by Sewcial Butterfly

I’ve been wanting to make this bracelet for a long time. This is the prototype. I wasn’t quite sure how the felt would work for the embroiderying. The next bracelet I make, I will use more contrasting colors for the name plate. The green is kinda lost on the dark orange.

None the less I love it cuz I made it all by myself. I am thinking of posting this on my Etsy account. I have another bracelet in my head that I hope to make this week.

Wish me luck!

I bought a great dutch feltcraft book at half price for my birthday. I paid WAY too much for it but had to have it for a couple of the projects it has. One in particular is this bird project.

I want to make this bird for a friend of mine. I think it will be appreciated. A lil thank you for his support of Sewcial Butterfly. I hope the finished project is how I am picturing it in my head. I’ll be hand sewing the whole thing. eeek!

I’ll keep ya’ll posted.

Wish me luck!
