new dolls up on instagram after the new year

My favorite gift, a new basket to house my projects. Tim worried it was too big, it’s a laundry basket, but nope! It’s perfect. I have new fabric and new yarn and new sketches and I’m excited to get back to it!

I’ll be posting them on instagram as I finish them and have etsy listings dates there as well.


I took this picture a few days ago and I’ll tell you what, I should have stopped knitting that fox dress right there! I don’t know what’s up with my knitting these days! Well, I guess I do. I’m at the error part of trial and error, coming up with knit dress designs for the dolls. Maybe I should plan on paper before I start. Do some math.

Another gift, a new ironing board cover. I know, I know, I’m so glamorous. But, I love it! So weirdly luxurious to iron on a nice clean surface that I haven’t yet jacked up. My ironing board is my project organization station. On there today (R to L) thrifted dress, my latest order from fabricworm and just making the photo, one of the two doll bodies I have cut out from my last trip to my LQS. That’s an acronym, right? Like LYS

    I love practical gifts the best nothing better. I do have a question for you. I was wondering what fabric you use for your doll bodies on Kit, Chloe and Louise. It looks like wool to me. Just guessing.Thanks. Happy New Year! Hope to make lots more dolls and stuffed toys this year. That’s my resolution for the New Year. I think that’s attainable.

    I like your very practical, useful gifts. I’m jealous of your ironing board cover and basket. I SO need a new ironing board cover. Starting with a fresh one in January would be good! Happy sewing and creating, Hillary! I love clicking over to see what you’re up to.

    My ironing board is my fabric display area too! And laying out the fabrics and choosing all the pretty colours and suitable combinations is so much fun.
    I am working on the fairytale doll from your Wee Wonderfuls book at the moment, she’s all sewn up and just waiting for her face to be embroidered (I like to do that last).
