Happy Halloween!

     Happy Halloween, everyone! I hope you all have a fantastic, candy-filled day! I made a 1920s flapper girl costume for my doll, Nicole. I hope you all like it! The dress was a lot of work to make because I sewed it by hand, and I sewed all of the tiny beads onto the front. I was thinking about adding fringes, but I didn't because I was really ready to be done with it! The bracelets are actually my own, and I wrapped them around her hand twice.

Fall Fun

    Hello, there! I have been loving this beautiful fall weather, so I decided to do an outdoor photoshoot with Hannah. I hope you like it!
     I took these pictures in a tree, and some of them are on a small platform made of sticks. It was kind of scary to take pictures of her standing in it, because the fort was an even height with my face. I was nervous that my doll would fall! :P


Here is a picture I took of Hannah making leaf angels!

Lastly, I took a photo of Hannah lying down on the stick fort. Scary aerial photos that require you to climb trees are not recommended!

Cake Catastrophe

I am posting my first photostory today! It's not anything fancy, but I hope you like it. Please let me know if you want to see more! Thank you!

   "This cake looks so good! I can't wait to eat it!" Hannah said to herself.

     Libby thought it looked good, too!

     "No, Libby!" Hannah yelled.

     "This cake is for girls like Nicole and me, not for dogs! No eating our food!"
     Realizing she really needed to use the restroom, Hannah ran out of the kitchen.
     Just then, Nicole walked in. She couldn't help but notice the scrumptious cake someone left out on the counter. 

     "Hannah!" Nicole called. No one answered. 
     "I'm sure Hannah wouldn't mind if I ate a piece of her cake," she thought.

     Nicole put a slice of cake on a plate and walked to her room to eat it.

     When Hannah came back to the kitchen, where Libby was sleeping on the floor, she saw that some of the cake was missing.

     "Now, Libby, what did I tell you about eating our food?" Hannah scolded.

DIY Doll Food: Cake Slices!

     Does your doll need something sweet to snack on? You can make her some delicious and fluffy cake!

  You will need:
- a thin sponge (preferably yellow)
- a tube of Puffy paint (or any other fabric paint) the color that you want your icing to be
- Scissors
- a cup or glass

     First, keep your cup in place on the sponge, and carefully cut around it.

     Then, cut your sponge in half, and cut each half into two pieces. Now, you should have for equal slices. It's okay if they're a little uneven!

     Squeeze and spread fabric paint on the tops of two pieces.

     Stack one piece on top of each, and spread some fabric pain onto the sides of the seam.

     Then, cover the top and the curved side with more fabric paint. Let it dry for a few hours before serving to dolls.

Also, I am going to post my first photostory on Friday! This cake will be in it! :)
