New year sewing
Haven’t sewn properly during the holiday festive season, had to do some “warm up sewing” before some actual work related sewing… so who benefits from it? ^^;
Taiga said it’s the year of the Tiger, she’s entitled to get something new from me… It’s not perfect, but she got a Yukata from me by twisting my pinky (still gotta make a proper obi and maybe a proper under garment of sorts^^;).
Managed to dig out tiny PVC tenori tiger from the boxes and boxes of stuffs ^^; A bit hard to remember what is where sometimes, especially when I try to pack them safely ^^;
Just before opening the surprise bear from Romina of ihavewings! Tiger on top of Taiga’s head fell over a few times ^^;
This part kinda reminded me of a certain scene in Toradora! with some differences of course :P
Awwwww she loves the surprise bear :)
Also finally finished up a test “winter jacket” for the big girls, but it’s not well fitted (grrr) I almost did not compete it ^^; Sometimes things just don’t fit the way I like, and it stalls my sewing progress =_=; I have to Ganbarimasu x_x!!!
Below, the collar can be better, the front part is a bit misaligned and the snaps shows a bit too much for my liking *bangs head on wall* :P
Thanks for coming back to check out dolly photos :)
Anyone of you guys use etsy to buy stuff? Or ebay? ^^;
I used ebay…once :P
The jacket and Yukata look awesome!
awwwww! I use it time to time, but sometimes I look for “buy it now” rather than go into bidding war lol! Thank you :)
Taiga looks really nice, and I like the winter jacket! funny how the bear matches taiga’s kimono so well ^^
Thank you :) I think I need to add some buttons or something on the jacket ^^ And yes! Must be the green on the fabric :D
Hehe, the pattern on Taiga’s Yutaka looks a little Christmasy ^^; But lovely nonetheless!
Hahaha~ I was going to pick a fabric with cupcake and pastry pattern ^^; XD But I want to try the pattern first before I use anything final, even this version I wish it is slightly longer and also cover her joints a bit more! Thanks Kodomut :D
