Welcome to my blog! I'm a stay at home of 3 beautiful children and I love to sew! I have been sewing ever since I was a little girl and my gran taught me everything from machine-sewing to cross-stitch. I started making Barbie clothes this past Christmas for my daughter and I loved it! It's so much fun to design and create fashions for the ultimate model - Barbie! I opened a shop on Etsy in May of this year and I have met a lot of talented artists that I enjoy networking with. So, take some time to look around, read my posts, and enjoy!

Sales and Bargins!

There are lots of Christmas in July sales going on over at Etsy this week, not to mention some great bargains! I had no idea how many shops have items under $10 and $20! Here are few great examples:

And tomorrow starts the Saturday Night Special event! Here is a link to the team that sponsors this: Saturday Night Specials. There will be a discussion thread that starts at 5 pm EST where shops will list their SNS and buyers can shop to their heart's content! The specials will end at 6 am EST (or earlier, times may vary in certain shops). What's mine you ask? Well, that's a surprise!! But how does a FREE ITEM sound? Hope to see shopping tomorrow night!


  1. My great-aunts, aunt & Mom used to give all us girls scraps of fabric & a needle & thread to make Barbie clothes, back in the early '60's. No patterns, but my Barbie had the best wardrobe of fur coats & gowns from my Gr Aunt. I've been sewing for Barbie ever since, but especially since the early 80's for my daughter. Today I'll be making a wardrobe for my gr-niece who is turning 6. It's a wonderful hobby, and I hope you do well with your business. Thank you for your inspirations! I'm motivated to create for a boutique my Mom and I are doing in November.

  2. That's fantastic! I started doing this for two reasons: my almost 2 yr old daughter loves Barbies and the craft shows last Christmas had no Barbie clothes sellers! Handmade Barbie clothes are the best!

  3. Thanks for sharing the SNS info! And I love your shop by the way. I wish I had a girl so I could buy barbie stuff. I absolutely love the idea of handmade barbie clothes.


  4. Thanks! I love your shop, too - your toddler ballet flats are gorgeous!
