Second doll meet.

My mother thinks I’m crazy, she can’t understand why you would go to a doll meet.  I bet if they were having a meetup for basket collectors she would go.  This meetup was in Orlando (awful traffic) it was a nice day, maybe a bit warm.  Its good to see other dolls and definitely after seeing one very large one there I know I have started with the right size for me.  Here are some pics I got.

Adventures in sewing.

Now I’ve sewn cloth dolls and made clothes for them but sewing for a bjd was a bit different.  It would have been easier if I had a pattern to follow and wasn’t just making it up as I went.  It would also have been nice if my sewing machine did not try and eat the knit fabric every few stitches.  Well here is the first outfit.
