Better Late Than…Oops

Sorry for sort of disappearing for the last few weeks.  If you read my last post, you should understand partially why I disappeared.  Or there’s a possibility that you wouldn’t understand, people can be funny about those sort of things.

Anyway, I got back on track with crafting and feel all the more better for it. 

Lace top and wrap skirt for Monster High dolls

First up, some of you should remember my Monster High doll, Draculaura (see Old and New Dolls).  I had been meaning to make some clothes for her for the longest time and had never gotten around to it until now.  She should have something to wear besides pajamas. 

So I whipped up this wrap skirt and top.  The top is basically a tube made with wide lace and open in the back.  I cut a piece of the lace in half to make the straps.  The skirt is cut from a scrap of white felt.  I covered the edges with black ribbon.  All she needs now is a pair of shoes to match.  She’s still stuck wearing her bedroom slippers.

Cute Princess Skirt

Next up is this skirt.  I promised my niece I would make her a pretty new skirt if she got a flu vaccine.  It’s mostly light blue with a pink panel in front.  Trimmed with some lace and bows, she feels just like a little princess.  Of course it needs something.

Cute Floral Top

Like a shirt.  This was the bodice for that dress I messed up a while back (see Too Small? Nooooooo!).  After shortening it and adjusting the neckline, it was perfect for my niece to wear.
 
Simple Full Skirt

Next is another skirt, for me.  I got the fabric at Goodwill and thought it would be perfect for a simple-ish skirt for me.  Plenty of fullness with the slightest touch of lace along the hem, it makes for a lovely and versatile skirt.

Half Apron

Another Goodwill find, a flat sheet with lace on the border.  My first thought was that it would make a very pretty apron.  I was right.  It was so easy to do too.  I just cut off a section of the sheet, leaving the hems intact, and added the waistband after gathering the top edge.  Now I have a lovely apron to twirl around in and possibly do some baking or whatever.

Clock Before

Last but not least, remember that clock I decorated before (see Clocked In)?  I had another one that also needed a touch of something.  I also had some flocked bears that I needed to do something with.  Combine the two and what do you get?

Cute Teddy Bear Clock

This cute bear clock.  I just covered the clock with scraps of this cute “nature-y” fabric, added some lace along the edges, and glued on the bears.  Now I have possibly the sweetest looking clock ever.

Here’s the updated list:
  • Doll clothes
  • Black headband
  • White headband
  • Blue skirt
  • White skirt
  • Apron
  • Clock
Seven finally completed.  Plus there’s a bonus one, I’ll show it tomorrow.
