Our shop is live and other exciting news

We have a couple of exciting announcements!

First, we have a winner for our drawing on to purchase a Good Fortune doll: Karli Zearley!  Good Fortune dolls are rare opportunities where YOU, the buyer, get to design the perfect doll right down to the color scheme of the outfits.  Karli is requesting a special little doll that resembles her soon to be 2 year old daughter Izzi.  She sent along pictures of her sweet little girl and let me tell you its going to be a challenge making a doll as gorgeous as little Izzi.  We will do our best though and we're confident that Izzi will love her Tansy doll.  :D

I have to say that planning for the Good Fortune doll's clothing is a lot of fun.  One of the things I love about sewing is picking out fabric, but I find myself drawn to the same color combinations repeatedly.  It is not on purpose; I just tend to gravitate to the same colors...true reds, deep blues, cheerful aquas, rustic browns, and spring greens.  

Karli has requested sherberty pinks, yellows, oranges, greens, and teal.  I am loving this opportunity to work with some colors that I might not normally try out.  I have some lovely cottons in my stash that will definitely work, but I think a trip to the store is in call so I can find that perfect fabric for Izzi's doll.  *Oh, darn!*  Ha!  I love any excuse to visit the fabric store.   

Stay tuned next Friday for updates on how the trip to the store went and for a sneak peek at the fabrics I am considering.  If you are interested in a custom doll, follow us on Twitter or Facebook (tabs at the top of the blog will take you to the right place) for updates on the next opportunity to enter a drawing to purchase one!

Our second bit of big news is that our store is finally live!  Woohoo!!!  Visit our Etsy shop at to see the first two dolls for sale.  We will also be selling a limited supply of doll clothing!

And speaking of doll clothing.  I seriously have to stop myself from designing new clothes, but its so much fun.  I had to start an inventory of doll clothing that I could reference to keep myself accountable.  Until I build up enough stock for the clothing designs I have already created I need to restrain myself from creating more.  ;)

Okay, I'm off to wake up my little one to start our day.  I'll leave you with a sneak peek of a shirt and pair of pants I made this past week.
