Fant'sy Pirate

Here's the pirate version of the Fant'sy Frock dress--I'm pretty happy with it!

This dress is pretty awesome because it can easily change themes--with a few fabric and minor detail switches--from a witch, to a pirate, to a princess, to Steampunk look, etc. I plan on making a version of all of these to showcase the versatility of this design. Read more about Fant'sy Pirate

Fancy

Fant'sy Frock testing: now that I got it together in the actual fabric, I'm thinking it needs adjustments. Go figure, I can't always see it until I reach this stage.

So I'm not 100% sure about the sheer hi-low train thingy. Maybe in the main fabric it will work better. But it's got something. . .

Embroidery floss as a temporary laceup, didn't have the right cording. Read more about Fancy

LRC Fant'sy Frock in the Works

I got to painting my custom dolls when I realized I didn't have all the colors I needed. Apparently I thought I could paint the brows and lashes with flesh colors too! So after playing around with some blush and lip color, I set the heads aside and I ordered some more paints in the right colors.

They won't be here for a week maybe, so in the meantime, I started working on a new pattern, a fantasy-type frock. It will be perfect for a witch dress, and just in time for Halloween! Read more about LRC Fant'sy Frock in the Works

It's Almost Here

Little Raven Creations Basics: Boxer Shorts. Soon to be here. I'm going through the final test runs today. There are actually two styles offered in this pattern; three if you count the variation on one.

Good doll boxer shorts are hard to make. How hard? Well, I wanted something that could actually be worn under clothing without bunching and lumping, so I had to strike a good balance balance between authentic and workable Read more about It's Almost Here

My Proto Elf Hat

Proto Elf Hat

The proto elf hat for 18" dolls (most of them) is coming along! It looks great with the Fant'sy Vest too.

So the basic hat is done; it just needs a little elf magic bling. But even at this stage without a single bead, bell, or stitch embellishment (including on the vest) it already looks super cute. I'm hoping to have the pattern done and up on the website shop (and Etsy store) by the weekend. Read more about My Proto Elf Hat
