I'm so sorry I haven't posted here in AGES! But while I was not posting I have been making some wonderful little mermaid dolls! They are all handmade and handsewn by me with love and care out of all natural materials. Even the stuffing is organic! Well, I won't keep you waiting, here they are!

This is Coralie and Sun Shower,

Willow's Box Dress

Hello everyone!!!

As you all may know Bella, Emily and Zali ( The Blythe Club ) had an WONDERFUL competition!

You had to make something out of boxes, it was SO much fun!

Here is what I made!

Ta-Da! Willow's Box Dress!!

Here is how I made it!

I had LOTS of boxes to choose from because we had just moved house, and there where boxes EVERY WHERE!

I drew a picture of what I wanted to do!!

I used the muesli box and the soap boxes, the belt on the dress has the words "Made With Real Passion" from the muesli box.

 Here she is in the finished dress!!

 And here she is look AMAZING!

And the best thing is.... I won! the 'most creative' prize! A cute little hat donated by Zali that I'm sure Willow will LOVE!

My new blog!

Hi everyone this is my new blog! So I'm going to tell you a bit about myself.

My name is Ivy and I'm 10*, I love to sew and draw and needle felt and make stuff, and I really love BLYTHE!  I don't have any blythe dolls now but I'm getting Vinter Arden and petite Tea for Two next week*.  I'm so excited!

Well anyway here are some things I've made.

A Sea Unicorn, a Christmas present for my little sister

and a mermaid for my little sister's birthday

and another mermaid for my friend's birthday

I collected shells for their hair, the felt and the wool hair is organic and I needle felted on my little sister's one.
