  51. Congratulations Hillary! I received my copy of your FABULOUS book yesterday via Amazon. My 4 year old son and I looked through it cover to cover and he has picked out exactly what he wants me to make… although, I think I’m going to have to make everything. It’s just all so cute. I love your book and I hope that you are planning another book! Your designs are so creative and beautiful!

    Definitely one of the best toy books I’ve seen in ages!
    Cheers.

  57. Okay, so I always love STC Craft books, but I have to say- after getting my copy today, I love yours the best!
    Congratulations on your book, I can’t wait until my little boy is back to school in 3 weeks- I’ll have mornings for crafting again, and until then I can use the time to choose my favorites to start on, thanks so much for sharing your (wee) wonderful talent!

  66. That video just killed me. As if I wasn’t already looking forward to your book!

  67. This made me smile. A big happy grin. Thanks!

  68. I ordered my copy of the book today! I can’t wait!

  69. I ordered my book last week and Amazon shipped it a day early so it arrived today!!! It’s like Christmas except I am stuck at work wishing I was home sewing some of these beautiful creations! The book is amazing! You did a fantastic job, I love the photos, the lay out and everything about it!!! What an inspirational book, can’t wait to get started ๐Ÿ™‚

  70. This video is great! Well done.

  71. Hillary, so much FUN to see this video (soundtrack is simply infectious) and to see your book is out in the world! Well done all ’round.

  72. Just picked up the book and I LOVE IT!!!! I’ve been looking for that cute little lace trim that’s just right for doll dresses (like on the ‘Sleepover Pals’, pg 53)and can’t find it in my local fabric stores. Where do you gals find it?

  73. I discovered your blog years ago. I have made many of your creations and wanted to thank you for helping me rediscover my sewing and crafting roots. We have a long line of them in my family and seeing what you create threw me into the world of crafting- modern style. I have been silent all this time, but I wanted to say congratulations on the book and the video is very fun!
    Thanks again,
    Lynn

  74. That was so cute!!!

  75. How fabulous was that?!! Oh gosh!! Had to show the boys! So cute Hillary, and love the music!

  76. I think those trims were all ones from my thrifted/vintage stash but I’ve picked up many cute little crocheted trims from Joanns fabrics. Do you have one of those by you?

  77. Oh my goodness, I love that video. Thank you for bringing me a smile during a hectic workday. I can’t wait to get my hands on that adorable book. Congratulations!!

  78. Love the video- so fun seeing your books in some of the indie craft stores here in L.A. Congrats!!

  79. cutest thing ever!!!

  80. Yep, that’s her on the cover!

  81. What a cute video! i love that little machine ๐Ÿ™‚
    That’s how it really happens!

  82. That made me smile! Thank you!

  83. Wow! That was seriously cute! Where can I get me one of those Wee Wonderfuler doll making machines???

  84. Bought your book at Purl Soho in NYC! I was thrilled to see it there after reading about it online. It’s just LOVELY. Wonderful eye candy and SO inspiring. Well done!
