Creative Challenge

Do you remember these cute feet. Now I can show you who they belong to. This weekend Hanne, Bente (no blogger ) and I met for a sewing weekend. And of course a reveal of this challenge. It was I who gave them this challenge on our summer meeting. I gave them a piece of skin fabric, three red buttons and some laces and the title was "sleep little doll".

This is my doll. It is a Rosalie Quinland pattern and was easy to sew. I stuffed the arms and legs too much (because I did not read the pattern LOL) but I am really happy with how she looks. She has no name yet, but will company me and Frida Cat in the sewingroom.

This is the doll Hanne made. Inspired from a Tilda pattern. Look at the cute teddy her doll is holding :)

Bente was also inspired from Tilda and look at her cute doll who is hangning on a clothshanger.

And the doll is protecting a secret jewellry pocket :)

It is so fun doing these challenges. By now we have had four challenges and this weekend we got our fifth challenge from Hanne.

She gave us two stripes with "old" yellow fabric and the title of the challenge is "A lot of light and warmth" (this is also from a Norwegian song title that is difficult to translate). She also gave us a cute little box filled with candy. Guess that is to keep the spirit up when we are thinking of what to make out of these yellow stripes.

Saying for today:

Challenges are what makes life interesting,
overcoming them is what makes life meaningsful.

It seems like you ladies are always having a sewing weekend! I'm jealous! The dolls are all just darling. I really want to make a few dolls, but have been busy with other projects. I always find it hard to know how much stuffing to put in.
