Dominique's New Skirt and My Favorite Tool
Dominique's wardrobe is coming along. I made her a little leopard skirt .
I need to iron it. Right now it has that look a skirt gets after wearing it all day.
Here she paired it with a brown top and the Stardoll jacket that came with the red headed Stardoll. This jacket came with the orange dress Kara is now wearing at the wedding.
I'm not happy with the brown top, so I will look for something a little lighter to wear with this jacket.
This is my favorite "tool" at the moment. It is a two-sided quilter's press. Someone was throwing it away and I grabbed it, not knowing how much use I would eventually get out of it. It went unused for a couple of years. I now use it for everything. Sewing clothes, making the furniture, making the food, as a laptop desk, as an ironing board, etc. This surface is hard, so I can do rotary cutting on this side. The multiple rulers and the 1 in blocks, allow for quick measuring. I will use this to design new wood patterns for upcoming wood furniture.
Flip it over and you have a soft surface, where I do my ironing (in my lap). This tool allows me to be more efficient. The less I have to get up and move to something like an ironing board, the quicker I can get my projects finished.
Do you have a favorite tool or doll item?
