Blythe Doll goes Flower Gazing

One of the first few Blythe dresses that I made was given to a Blythe doll loving friend.  Here's another of her lovely dolls who went flower gazing in my dress :)

Oh, nice flower...

OOOooooh!!  What a pretty bunch!!

Inline Skates Strap

When you think of sewing, you think of dresses, skirts, pouches, bags...... mostly girly stuff.  But sewing is a useful skill for boy's stuff too.  No, I'm not talking about sewing boy's clothes, or even plush toys (e.g. dinosaurs and elephants).  I'm talking about REAL boy's stuff - inline skates!

Big One's inline skates' velcro strap started showing signs of wear and tear.  A quick check showed that it would cost about $10 to replace the straps with plain, boring black ones.  So I decided to take action before it was too late and started to reinforce the velcro straps with Pokemon cloth!

Now Big One is happy with his unique Pokemon inline skates!
