More info on Ankie Doll

Gwen Jackson of the 3D Doll club
chatted with Ankie Daanen and asked if she had a method she use to add photo images to her Cloth dolls.  She sent the attachments for our inspiration.  But she said the photos are real photos are not transfers because they can fade.  And she uses Face stamps and color them and adds embellishments.  Per Ankie "Gwen, when you print faces on fabric than after a while they dissapear 
You can also use real pictures, or just sew on funny faces with buttons etc.
Also nice to use a stamp and color them with gel pens.
I added two pics."
Because the time for Day With Dolls is getting close, I am removing the registration form and asking those who have not registered yet to just email me directly if you are coming.  We plan to have goodies for all those attending and need to have as accurate a count as possible.  Please plan on paying at the door with cash.  Thanks in advance fo your cooperation and look forward to seeing everyone.  Just an FYI, we have almost 70 people registered already!!!!  Should be a really amazing day.

Free Gift From Jessica Hamilton

Jessica Hamilton of wanted to be a part of day with dolls but could not send kits this year so sent the download for the fun project, Cameo Silhouette Brooch.  Jessica has contributed to our goodie bag in the past, but unfortunately, we notified  her a bit late for her to donate kits, so she is providing us with instructions for this fun project!  Click on the link to the right to download the instructions and enjoy!  Wouldn't these make the cutest name tags????  You could use your own silhouette or that of one of your children or grands!  Thanks so much Jessica!


Day With Dolls Update

We have added the Ankie Style Pattern to the list on the right of the screen for your download.  Can't wait to see what everyone does with this pattern.  I am including larger pics of Ankie's doll as well as one created by our own Diane Kearny which is just superb!  See you in a few weeks!  Enjoy!

Less than a Month until Day With Dolls!

Registrations are pouring in each day!  Looking forward to spending time with everyone again!  Here is a sneak peak at the Mannequin Pincushion.  It can be entirely sewn by hand or you can do it as prework.  The Mannequin can stand alone or can be applied to a base (a wooden candlestick from Michaels! which you will have to supply).  The chipboard cutouts for the bottom will be provided at Day With Dolls.

We will also have the pattern for the Ankie doll next week.  This will require prework and the pattern will be provided on receipt of your registration.

We have lots of demos lined up!  I'll be giving sneak peeks of them as we get closer to the Date!
