Paper Ladies 1/2 lady Pin Cushion In RED Gingham




Gentle Friends, she just needed some decorative pins from ShellysButtonsandMore
and she is done, done and done wink...
WHEW....I can breath now....I was so excited to work on her and to set her in my 
studio as INSPIRATION. 



I worked on her most of the day yesterday, she was just begging to be completed..
my wee fingers were busy making ruffles and I just adore her...

RILEY BLAKE DESIGNS was certainly my GINGHAM choice.
HOW can you ever go wrong with GINGHAM! 


With some lovely suggestions for her t-shirt, black dots were added with my stylus-
 I waited till she was dry and then I began dressing her in ruffles...
I have located this amazing place for cotton lace and it is really the perfect accent 
piece to our PIN Cushions...

Did not take me as long as I thought...Ohhhh she sits in the palm of my hand...

So from the Inspiration of our Paper Ladies she comes to life...



I hope this day brings you sunshine in your heart and soul...
I am heading out to a CHINA AUCTION....
and that can only mean more 1/2 ladies in my/our future...




I have spent the day painting my NEXT Pin CUSHION doll
This was another one commissioned by Christel Hutson...she is sooooo talented...
She is very pretty 1/2 doll. .....

She came to me unpainted -my choice...
With all honesty I have never ever painted a doll before...
Sooooooooooo, I chose my three colours and voila....

I spent the entire morning with her....baked some muffins, came back
to paint, cleaned my kitchen, back to paint, 
had a meeting, back to paint.....

Now I have cut out all of my RED Gingham and for the next 
couple of days will be hand sewing a few ruffles for her....

For breaks I will continue to work on my MOTHERS day 
cross stitch, no sneak peaks on her just yet....

OHHHH I love playing with DOLLS.....
especially these dolls...




It took us well over a week... but we completed the PAPER LAIDES 1/2
doll Pin Cushion Pattern.


There are 58 coloured photos included....
There are 3  detailed methods on how to make your very own Pin Cushion....

We have had many inquiries on where to find them...( 1/2 dolls) 
We included on the last page all the search words that 
have allowed us to purchase quite a few of them....


As this is 3 patterns in 1, cost is $15.00 US.

WE included everything you need to make these.

Cori and I will also be designing some 1/2 ladies of our own too...
WE have both purchased all supplies we need.

We also have a mentor in Michael Anthony Neff who is 
a Master  MOLD MAKER....
I was searching for some professional direction when 
I hit the jackpot with this most amazing man....

He will be assisting us in preparing our molds to make
some 1/2 dolls...We could not do without him....


So Mothers Day is coming up and we have a few surprises....

A new pattern for all  of our MOM'S....
