I’ve been posting links to the patterns and tutorials for lots of complete outfits lately. I’m doing that for two reasons:
- I’ve been enjoying some vacation time with my lovely family.
- I’m busy re-organizing my website to make it easier to find patterns.
When a person takes the time to do a little vacationing with family, it’s amazing what wonderful things they see and do! I wanted to share one of my recent experiences with my followers, because I know lots of us are not just seamstresses/sewists, but we also like to do other crafts too.
For those of you who love to work with beads (and even for some of you who enjoy making Barbie dioramas and/or dollhouse miniatures), this video is for you. It’s a snapshot of a fun time I had with my family (and our dolls) at Yellowstone, along with a little side-stop that we took, that turned out to be one of the most amazing parts of our family adventure!
I hope you enjoy this video. To visit Mangum’s Beaders’ Paradise on Facebook, just follow the link I’ve provided there. You can order from Mangum’s online, through that venue.
If you’re wondering why I make patterns and tutorials without charging a fee, please visit the “Chelly’s Books” page, and that should explain my general motivations. Overall, I love to sew, design doll clothes, and embroider, and I think it’s important to share my talents with the world, so others can learn to do what I do.
And in case you haven’t heard, I have also designed commercial patterns for Lammily LLC. They have some new dolls coming out soon, so you might want to visit the Lammily website to see what they’ve got going on.
