8″ Lil’ Sis & Carry-Me Bag

I received a custom request for two 8″ Lil’ Sis My Teeny-Tiny Dolls® & Carry-Me Bags for 2 adorable sisters. Before committing to saying yes, I had to see if an 8″ Lil’ Sis would fit well into the Carry-Me Bag pockets. They did and here are the adorable 8″ Lil’ Sis sisters in their very own Carry-Me Bags.

Don’t they look like they are about to go on a fun ride like a roller coaster? And they did go on a fun ride – I popped them in and twirled them like crazy .. and they both hung on for dear life.

So there you go, both the 11″ My Teeny-Tiny Dolls®, and now also the 8″ Lil’ Sis can go on a wonderful adventure with your little ones in the Carry-Me Bags.

Teacher’s Gift

Josh’s Year 1 teacher went on maternity leave today. I made her little bub-to-be a cute little bib and puppy softie gift set …

.

… and a colour block tote bag for her.

.

And it’s reversible too!

.

I made one for myself back in September 2012 and it’s a great size bag to throw in a lot of baby/toddler needs for an outing or to take to the beach.

My New Bag

Thought I’d have a {PERSONAL PROJECT} today when I received my $5 Friday e-mail from Michelle Patterns

So I bought the 2 Additional Sizes of Messenger Bag (2 smaller sized bags) as well as the original Messenger Bag pattern – approximate dimensions 11″ (W) x 10″ (H) x 3″ (D) for the instructions. Now Michelle’s patterns (previously know as KeyKa Lou) is how I learnt how to sew. Her comprehensive tutorials with lots of step by step pictures are fantastic. She also has additional handy tips in her blog. I used to sell women’s purses and handbags from her patterns prior to making toys and dolls and now the My Teeny-Tiny Dolls®.

So with the rain today and the boys out of the house, thought I’d make myself a new messenger bag. Now for school pick-ups and drop-offs, I would only bring my keys, which I think is quite irresponsible of me, really. I should bring my mobile phone and ID aswell. Most of my bags now-a-days are big ones to house all the necessary stuff you need with 2 little boys and the small bags are more clutches and are a bit dressier.

My progress of the bag got me really excited and was keen to get it all finished before the boys arrived home.

So after 2 hours, I finished!

I love the pocket at the front, as well as the internal pocket.

The fabrics for the exterior and the lining are both from IKEA

EDIT: Pardon my tracky daks (tracksuit pants) and sweatshirt, but thought I’d show you the bag worn on.

Baby Bunny and Bassinet Set

With it raining here in Sydney and the dark overcast sky, it’s great to just sit back, not use the sewing machine and relax … well the best way I know how. By doing some handstitching.

I made another Baby My Teeny-Tiny Doll Bunny with her very own baby pink bassinet.

 

She is all snug in her very warm wool blend bassinet.

 

She is a great accessory for your My Teeny-Tiny Doll as a little sibling or baby cousin. Or a great toy on her own (although not suitable for rough play) and fantastic Easter gift idea.

 

She measures just a mere 3″ from the top of her head (not including her bunny ears) to the tip of her toes. Her bassinet measures 3.5″ x 2.5″ and both made from wool blend felt.

 

Baby Bunny is made using a Gingermelon pattern while the bassinet was drafted and designed by me.

The set is available now in my etsy store. SOLD
