Hello! I seem to be able to manage one blog post per season at the moment! This is my summer post. ^_~
I’ve been enjoying the summer so far! Back in July I celebrated my birthday with a new sewing machine! Baby Poppy is keeping me really busy, but I have been able to spend a few blissful days and a lot of evenings sewing. One of the first things I made was a summer dress for Poppy, from sparkly goldfish fabric I bought on a very hot day in Tokyo, it seems like a long time ago now!
I think Poppy likes it. ^_^ She’s 7 and a half months old now and she’s getting so strong and clever! She amazes me every day with all the new things she can do. This summer has been all about picnics and parks! We put quilts down on the grass and let Poppy play.
I like the kimono style crossover bodice so much that I made another baby dress which is available to buy in my Etsy shop. This one is made from Japanese fabric with a traditional floral print. The dress is trimmed with Japanese lace. This one is made to fit a 12-18 month old. Let me know what you think of this style. ^_^
I’ve also been making lots of Blythe doll dresses and my Dolly Mixture Etsy shop is well stocked at the moment! I’ve been experimenting with applique, top stitching and printing my own fabric. ❤
I’ve got a few more projects planned for the rest of August. Next up are some Totoro applique cushion covers which should be in my shop very soon. ^_^
That’s all for now! I’m sure I’ll update again in Autumn! ❤ xxx
