... I'm finally here and I'm a mess ... Well, my sewing room is anyway. Just closed the first two dollies for 2014. I definitely have the sewing fever now - Jul has been drawing doll designs for me left, right, and centre; I completely deconstructed my old black wool coat last night and am plotting ways to usurp Sonia's red wool coat to subject it to a likewise state of fabric rebirth.
Made this little cutie with scraps out of my old coat.
I love wool felt!! It is my favourite fabric for embellishments and all things stitcher-y.
Third Street is doing its part to combat the untied shoelace epidemic that has long plagued childhood. Stitched laces, embroidered with a uniform straight stitch and a relatively steady hand, are guaranteed to remain tied throughout the most vigorous play times. And these shoes won't get stuck in the mud causing you to have to walk home in a socked foot, much to your Mom's dismay.
Now, if only we could stitch laces to our actual children's tootsies.
