Jacket and Custom Pieces
After completing the second order, I took a mini-break to create a jacket and skirt from this faux leather material. I realized after almost finishing the jacket, that the material was not of great quality. So that means I can't offer anything I created with it, for sale.
Dasia loves her new jacket and skirt. I will get pictures of the skirt later. I will probably make her some pants, too. I will have to look for some better material so I can make some saleable leather jackets.
Part of the custom order included a red Ohio State shirt. I wanted to try the transfer process April described on her blog Fashion Doll Stylist, but I have an inkjet printer, not a laser printer. So I used the old fashioned transfer paper technique. Now that I have transfer paper, and transfer medium, I will be offering more customized tshirts and bags.
Another custom request, a lilac button down. Finding the right color buttons for this shirt was impossible. I finally made the decision to paint (and seal) them. Custom orders always help me grow.
Today is an all day sewing day. Tomorrow I will be attending an alzeimer's fundraiser and a Brave's game. That leaves Sunday for doll play, blog reading, and grass cutting. See you soon!
