Esther’s Overalls

I recently spent some time at my cabin and took some time out creating new overalls for Esther. Here’s some pictures of what I came up with. The shirt was made by a dear friend.

July Design Challenge

I decided to create a cute trendy sandal for Sasha and toddler. I love the way the toddler size turned out. I used a stiff white leather on my pattern mock up and I liked them so well I made another pair.
On the Sasha size I tried a thin leather and it was way too thin. I’ll be reworking the Sasha size with thicker leather and a smaller sole. Watch my blog for future sales.

Toddler Traveling Outfits

Every year for festival I create special traveling outfits for Esther and her friends and traveling companions. This year I found fat quarters of matching prints in different colors. I even found matching leather for flower embellishments and pearl beads. A special friend made the beautiful knitted sweaters.

Sasha Festival: Minnesota Twins raffle

This year our Minnesota Sasha Group decided to donate a special set of Sasha school dolls and a matching wardrobe. Here are some pictures of some of the outfits I made as well as a picture of the complete raffle with items made by many talented seamstresses.

New Sandal Designs

I’m gearing up for festival and thought I’d spend some time this weekend creating some new fun sandal designs. Here’s what I came up with.

June Design Challenge

I totally forgot to post a picture of my June Design. I created leather saddle shoes with brass eyelets. I need to tweak the pattern slightly, but overall the design is pretty spot on. These are going to be part of the raffle doll’s outfit at festival this year.

2019 CFA completed

Here’s a picture of my CFA donation to this year’s Sasha Festival. Matching outfits for Toddler and Sasha. They feature floral tunics, leggings, leather sandals and of course my signature knit hats.

May Design Challenge

My May Design challenge entry is a new style for toddler dolls. I have a few tweaks that I need to make to the straps, but the basic shoe design fits very nicely.

April Design Challenge....better late than never.

 I was challenged by a very special Sasha friend to make Sasha sandals to match her CFA donation this year. The result is a lovely pair of leather sandals with eyelet detail and snap closure.

As I write this post, the big fluffy snowflakes are falling and I’m dreaming of spring. This month’s design reflects my wish for spring. These all leather slip on shoes fit the Sasha babies. They have adorable embellishments that are perfect for spring.
