Cashmere Feline

making lots of doll stuff lately, but I'm still making plushies...
just finished this bright pink and baby blue cat in cashmere.

5 in tall.

I keep thinking up names: "Boots"? nope , "Socks?" Nope...

very soft with a sweet expression, this little one is full of love and ready to share.

Ume's lacy dress 2 by trinlayk
Ume's lacy dress 2, a photo by trinlayk on Flickr.

a quicky test dress, reduced to 90% of the original pattern (see prior "dress of fate")...

It turned out lovely, and I think I'll do more with lace soon.

it fits almost perfectly, I'll do one or two more out of scraps, and then try to do one in the blue fabric with the roses again.

yay. \

I've got enough of the blue fabric to make another dress in this size. but I don't know if I have enough of the fabric, to scale up the pattern to fit the Littlefee and make a matching dress.

Update: measure twice cut once

Update: doll dress of Fate

This was SUPPOSED to be a Pukifee dress, I made an error printing out the pattern... so it was HUGE on her.

here it is on my Littlefee (my next larger size up doll) and it's too small on this one.

However, it will most likely fit the slim Yo size or the Planetdoll minis... so I'm taking the now finished dress to the meet in a month or so. It'll fit someone who will want it, right?

It must have been fated for THAT someone. (I'm going to try again, I have enough fabric so that won't be an issue.)

the collar and petticoat (with the lace) are separate items. so this outfit is fun for mixing an matching... can't wait till I have a version for Ume...finally.

Measure twice, cut once

Measure twice, cut once.

I printed out this pattern .25 in too big:
so it's huge on my PKF who it was intended for, and too small for my LTF...
I'm going to try it again, with PAPER TOWEL as a muslin and then use what I have left of this fabric.

I am going to finish this one, since it WILL fit Planetdoll minis, and the slim style Yo dolls (the Yo height but more adult/teen proportions) there's a lace detachable collar finished and I'm going to do a petticoat with lace edging (that will show beneath the hem) sometime in the next few it will be completed according to plan, Just not in the planned size.

This dress was simply fated for someone else. :D

Spring comes to Wisconsin-- sorta

We had a beautiful couple of days so I managed some photos outside with Souji.

then rain, and gloom and chill for 3 days, coinciding with 3 days of OMFG level of a migraine. I remind myself that these things pass and they do... I just have to wait them out and do my pain management routines...

However, this afternoon I am doing OK ish again, and working on Cthulhus to send to Marcon... pondering maybe sending them some origami dragons too.

There's a purple Cthulhu more than halfway done, and a good start of one in seafoam. Photos soon, hopefully.
