Here’s my contribution to Sunday Sketches This is my grand-daughter and the household cat, Cassie. I used watercolor pencils on watercolor paper.
And here it is hanging in our guest room.
I want to share my baby doll with Sunny Simple Sundays. I went through a period a few years ago where I was making doll clothes from remnants or small articles of clothing I picked up at the thrift store or garage sales. I made this little dress for my 1968 Ideal doll (I don’t know her name – if anyone does, let me know). I found an apron with colors that I liked and a pattern that I had for dolls her size. What I did was lay the pattern on the apron in such a way that the hemmed apron was the skirt part of the dress, hence no hemming! There were a few other neat short cuts derived from starting from an article of clothing already made but I don’t remember what they were 🙂 If you are interested in this kind of sewing you might want to check Pillows a-la-Mode and The Renegade Seamstress. They both have some awesome projects and they explain how-to’s very well!
P.S. If you will notice some of my photos have a thin white line running through the middle of the picture – I don’t remember dropping my camera but can’t figure what else this can be other than a hairline crack. Hopefully, I can get it fixed ’cause I really like this camera – a Canon Powershot SD990 IS and definitely don’t like having to retouch all my pixs.
