Seeing Double

It will probably come as no surprise to you that I’ve joined another swap. This time it’s a Blythe Autumn Celebration swap – basically you’re crafting back to school, Halloween, and fall items (hats, coats, etc.). I was so motivated to try out some new designs that I went ahead and started and made a huge dent in my package!

First off, I made a Halloween costume: a ‘cute witch’ look. I started off by making a hat. I stumbled across a pre-made, felt version at Hobby Lobby that I decorated with items I found on a fall pick. Then I set to work making a dress (using this pattern). I first made a polka dot fabric that I had picked up earlier that day, then remembered later that evening I had an even better print (vintage feel, with tiny pumpkins, leaves, etc.) stashed away with my fat quarters. Consequently, I made two dresses this weekend…. one for my partner and one for me.

I enjoyed sewing these up so much, I broke down and order another Doll Coordinate Recipe book (#10). Now what I’m really needing is some awesome Blythe shoes!
