Back in Business

It’s that time of year……school has begun! Today it did for my princess, to be exact.
It went well! She loves school so much. She’s such a social one. It’s also a new time for me. Time to start blogging again! Yay :)

You will be seeing lots more of me around here now as I began to adjust to this new routine of ours.

    Yay! Nice to have you back blogging again! I’ve missed your posts. I admit I’ve had a bit of a stop and start couple of months since my baby arrived. Just look at your princess! So much more grown up! :)

Back in Business

It has been a while, blog world. We are finally mostly settled in our new home in Florida. It’s an adjustment for sure. I lived my whole life in Virginia, so now I am in a complete strange place and know no one. I have a found a play group that I want to try out and we have church hunting on high priority. So, hopefully I will find some friends here soon. I haven’t been able to work on anything new yet, although that will be changing soon. Until then, I still have plenty of things I made for Christmas presents to share. Here are some cute bows I made:

I thought I used a pattern from here, but I can’t find it there any more. There are still a lot of other hair bow tutorials though if you want to check it out. I cannot wait until my daughter has hair and I can make some bows for her. (Well, I could stick them on a headband, but she usually pulls it off anyways *sigh*).

These are some dolls I made for my neices. They wanted ballerina dolls.

    Hi! I stumbled across your blog, and I am IN LOVE! I have spent hours upon hours the last few nights working back through your archives. I have a 21 month old daughter, so I totally relate to your lack of time, as well as the love of making things for your sweet little girl. I just saw these ballerina dolls, and wondered if you wouldn’t mind sharing your process of making them. Did you follow a tutorial or pattern from somewhere? I’d love to make one for my daughter. Thanks so much! I look forward to future posts! :)

    I made my own pattern for them. After looking at others I kind of came up with my own way, but there are a ton of great tutorials/patterns out there. Here is an adorable simple doll pattern:

    And this is where I learned about doing hair(although I did mine differently, hmm…maybe I should do a tutorial :) :

    I just sewed the hair on these up in a bun after sewing it on the head.

    For their tutu’s I just sewed a piece of elastic together and knotted skinny pieces of tulle on it until it was full. I did have to trim it at the end though.
