I would like to introduce you to a new girl in the studio, she likes to play with paper dolls - the type you cut out with scrap paper & scissors. She made her way to the studio a few weeks ago and this picture was taken when I was picking colors for her creation.
Her name is Pip "the paper doll girl"
I had my mind set on a combination Woodland grey, green and pink with a little splash of red gingham and the picture below was taken as I was selecting the fabrics.
I began stitching & piecing, making the design come alive with a little applique.
Pip's outfit is a three piece delight. The sweet foxy beret, red jacket with collar and dress with little pin tucks and flowers scattered here and there. Her pink Mary Jane shoes are inspired by my daughters love of her own - a pair that can take her dancing, crafting and playing. Those full length grey stripe stockings need no introduction and they suit Pip perfectly, indeed they were made for each other.
I adore my newest needle rest and a little pearl thread quilting...
Pip and her paper dolls is my newest design - the pattern includes detailed instructions to make the bag (yes it's pretty both front and back) plus the sweet needle rest (pictures below).
Oh & yes it comes with iron on transfers so you can stitch right over my drawn lines, that makes me happier than happy & more fun for you.
The best news? Paper Dolls is available now!
Off you go and grab a copy, you will love Pip just like I do....
