New Elsa doll pattern

new elsa doll sewing pattern

Elsa has a new look this year! I’ve had this pattern in my shop for over 10 years now and she’s definitely a favorite of mine. I remember when I first started designing dolls how I was obsessed with trying to get a nice round shape for a head from a 2D doll and the lightbulb I had when I decided to just make her 3D with a gusset, ha! I wanted a doll that had a few shortcuts … More

Elsa from my Elsa pattern

Little did I know when I named my doll pattern Elsa years ago that there would be such a popular Elsa on the scene. I figured it was time to make a version of my Elsa doll to match her famous name twin. I definitely couldn’t make the glamorous post-freak out version of Elsa in that bedazzled gown of hers so I tried to make the kid version of her. I had a tricky time finding the right materials.

Kindness Elf from the Elsa sewing pattern

Have you seen the Kindness Elves floating around on facebook? It’s an idea from the Imagination Tree website for an alternative to Elf of the Shelf. The Kindness Elf promotes giving and kindness by bringing thoughtful heart shaped suggestions instead of mischief and reproachful glances like the typical Elf of the Shelf. I like it! Our Snowflake, of course, is very well behaved and doesn’t narc to Santa so she’s not in need of replacing but who couldn’t use … More

Elsa doll as the Sugarplum Fairy

Both made from the Elsa pattern. Maybe after … More

well isn’t this cute

It often happens that I’m cleaning Phoebe’s room and come across some cute thing that I made her when she was little that I’d completely forgotten about. Like this little embroidered doll quilt. So sweet. She’s probably forgotten about it too. I could probably take half the stuff out of her room, wrap it up and give it back to her for Christmas and she’d be none the wiser.

Pippi!

I made a Pippi Longstocking doll for Phoebe. (see notes below and in comments) I thought she’d get a kick out of her poseable braids – instant updo! She’s in Phoebe’s room right now, playing around, waiting for her to come home. I really want to knit her something. Some sort of wonky uneven sweater. I don’t have the right yarn though. We’ll see if I can get my hands on some before the March sisters hair yarn arrives.
