The Denim Loveseat for Barbie and the Throw Pillow Dilemma
Here is the Denim loveseat. How is it that I have literally hundreds of pieces of materials and I still didn't have what I wanted for the throw pillows. I tried about 5 different color schemes and nothing worked quite as well as I would have liked. I decided to just keep it simple and do them in denim. I also did a set of red paisley pillows, which looks better in person than they do in the picture below. So I posted it on my Etsy site giving the buyer the option of denim or the paisley. Of course, if they make a request of some other color, I will try to accomodate them.
Here is Lisa and the baby. She is showing off a new outfit that I took from a Hobby Lobby mannequin. I have had those mannequins for over 5 yrs and it finally dawned on me that the dolls could probably wear the outfits, with a little sewing alteration, of course.
Here is the loveseat without any throw pillows. There's S.I.S. Darren.
I haven't done much with him yet, but I think he is coming up in a story
fairly soon. I thought about letting him date Danielle, but it doesn't seem
to be a good fit. There wasn't any chemistry when I introduced them.
