Am I crazy or do I just have too much time on my hands?
I finished the American Girl outfit I was working on and it turned out cute; I'll take pics tomorrow and get it listed. I'd like to get as much stuff sold as I can, my goal is to buy a Bleuette, I already have one picked out.
In the meantime, I've been looking at this little christening set to make for Tiny Tears for awhile. It just so happens that I have 2 yds of a nice white voile, and I am going to make the dress at least out of that. I am also going to embroider the contrasting band, which is where the crazy comes in. It's about 4 inches wide and goes around the entire skirt. Of course I will probably have to embroider the bodice too, or it won't look nice. And the bonnet. And if I make the coat (which I probably will, I found a source for 100% cotton broadcloth for cheap on the internet) I will have to at least embroider the cape part. And I may make a little blanket out of the broadcloth, too, and embroider the corner. And I need to find some really nice lace, I've already started looking. It will take a very long time to do this, I think; I haven't even started to look at possible embroidery patterns yet. I'm glad I saved all the pull-out sections from my Sew Beautifuls.If it turns out really nice I may be able to sell it for a lot, and if I can't, well my Tiny will have a beautiful ensemble that I can put on her for Easter or whenever. I hope it sells though, it could go a long way towards my Bleuette. I have a Chatty Cathy coming, I won her on E-bay the evening before Thanksgiving. It has been a really nice holiday weekend, the only thing missing is Melissa and Gregory, but they will be here in less than a month. Yay!
