Hello! Thanks so much to all who popped in for my End of Summer Sale! It was a great success and I'm sure you'll have lots to keep you busy for the next while! I've taken a little break in-between deadlines for my book project and have created three new Pocket Poppet doll kits and three new Poppet outfit kits. The doll kits are ready and available in my shop and the outfit kits will be available within the next few days.
I forgot how much I love making poppets! Each pattern kit will include the pattern booklet to make the doll, the wool blend felt to make the body of the poppet and her shoes, the gorgeous wool yarn for her hair and the pretty polka dot felt for her little sundress.
For the outfit pattern kits, I used the Summer outfit pattern and
created three different choices. Each kit will include the pattern
booklet to make the outfit, the wool blend felts to make her sweet
little hat, shoes and flower accessory and the polka dot felt to make
her pretty, flutter sleeved dress and matching hat band. This pattern kit will not include the pattern to make the doll.
Also, I've added felting needles to my ever growing section of Supplies. These are perfect for needle felting the hair of many of the dolls made from my patterns such as the Poppets, Pixies, Mermaid Girl, Mini Moppets, Tag-Along doll, Woodland Elf and Pony.
Oh yes, it's finally here - the End of Summer Sale!! Time to stock up on patterns and supplies and get busy making for the holidays which are just around the corner!

Oh my goodness, it's been a while, hasn't it!? I hope you've all been enjoying your summer or winter - wherever you may be in this wonderful world of ours! My summer has gone by in the blink of an eye! True's Bob, the older I get, the quicker it goes! Do you find that too?? Anyway, I'm not complaining as I still get to do what I love everyday - make dollies!
My two latest projects have been shrouded in secrecy and it's been terribly hard to keep everything to myself! Firstly, I've collaborated with the wonderful Australian Homespun magazine again and they will be featuring a doll pattern that I designed exclusively for them in the January 2015 edition. The second project is extremely exciting for me, but it's enormous and will keep me busy into the New Year! I'm working on a book of felt dolls, each with a different theme. There will be between 12 - 15 themes in total and will include a ballerina, princess, fairy, amongst others. As you know, I love sharing 'work-in-progress' pics, but due to the
nature of both these projects, I've not been able to even give sneak peeks of
anything till now...
This is the first batch of dolls for the book, all wrapped and ready to go to the publisher's. I know it's a bit of a tease, but it's all I can show.
Here's what I can show - teeny tiny felt undies for the the dolls :)
Please know that I will try my best to keep in touch. I've had almost no time at all to check my Facebook page over the last few weeks, but please keep posting photos of your Gingermelon makes on my wall - they are such an inspiration to others and I love seeing how they turn out!
PS Watch out for an End of Summer Sale coming soon!
