Dolls: Started Sewing Holiday Outfits for Sylvanian Families

I love creating outfits for Sylvanian Families. I like it vintage and country. Just this week I started sewing holiday outfits for them.
A friend bought my first three creations last weekend - country looks for male and female adult figure and the pink and black lolita outfit. I'm really glad she was very happy with what I did for her.

Here are the first two holiday outfits I did.

Thanks for viewing and have a great week!

Dolls: Sewing a "Lolita" Inspired Outfit for My Little Critter

I was inspired to do another outfit for my critters. This time it's for my lady critter, Savannah, of Sylvanian Trunk Family. I love "Lolita" outfits because, for me, it's beautiful and artistic. There are several styles of this fashion dresses but my favorite is the "Gothic Lolita" which black is the main color.

I have completed the outfit in two days considering my schedule and other obligations.

Here, Savannah is heading for a day stroll in the village.
The dress and accessories are all made of fabric and assorted materials except for the paper flower that I borrowed from my scrapbook supplies.

... Now, it's time for her to go home...

Thanks, Everyone, have a great weekend.

Early Christmas

Christmas is approaching and my family have started decorating our home. I know it's a bit early but it means that we'll be enjoying the decorations for a long time... Aside from that, I also started making cards for Christmas.

I'm preparing first the hand-stamped images before making the actual cards. I got these lovely images from a swap. I did a little camera play with my Sylvanians, Mother Savannah and Baby Brother Peanut, as if they are helping me with my cards.

Then, I got a chance to meet a collector of Sylvanian Families. Her name is Beng. We've met in PH Sylvanian Families, a group on Facebook. We thought it would be nice to meet and have a little fun with our collection, after all, I miss doing this ever since my friend Ails went back to her hometown for good... We did a little hunting or I should say shopping...

She bought play sets while I got a baby pram. On top of the box are stamps for my cards, I did a little craft shopping, too.

Then we sat on a cafe to relax and play...
I gave her the gift card I did last weekend. Inside is the baker's outfit I made for her since she loves playing dress-up with her collection. I just though it would be a nice welcome present for her.

She did a little set-up for our figures. Katrina Whiskers having a nice afternoon barbecue with Savannah Trunk while the babies, Mallory Whiskers, Peanut Trunk and Nana Trunk, were busy playing.

Before we parted, she surprised me with a welcome present, too... It's an SF Sheep Baby with Tricycle set. I really love it!

I really had great time and we hope to do this again, soon...

Thanks, Everyone, and have great weekend!

Cards: Hello Card

I hope everyone had a great vacation... Last night, I made a gift card for a friend whom I'll be meeting this coming week. I have inserted a handmade present inside the card to surprise her. I hope she loves it.

Before I go, I would like to share a few fun photos I did from our vacation.

"A whole year round of Christmas joy!" is how I feel every time I see my brother and sister-in-law's wonderful collection of Christmas Village homes.

So that's it for now! Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
