“Spring Fever” dresses for Ten Ping and Noel are up for sale…

I added a “surprise” post on Sunday and several of you saw it… well, I think a few more than several. I couldn’t wait until Monday’s post to share them, so I added a link to the listings on Ebay for both dresses. Ten Ping, my little 8″ Ruby Red Galleria cutie is just that… as cute as can be in this sweet little pink dress. It might be simple, but it sure makes me smile when I see her in it! Here are a couple of my favorite photo’s from our session…

Noel’s dress looks equally as darling on her and she is standing on my cutting table wearing this dress like she’s going to be allowed to keep it… sorry, Noel, that’s not the way things work around here…but I promise you, there will be more to model…Here are a few shots from her Ebay photo shoot…

I let the girls pick their favorite “group” shot, and this is the one they picked…

Marilyn mentioned something about everyone not knowing just how tiny these girls were…and thought maybe if I showed them next to something familiar, it might give a better idea of their size. I decided most everyone knows of the American Girls and how big they are, so I placed Noel and Ten Ping next to Eden… and they do look extra tiny beside her.

I mentioned I had such tiny scraps, I wasn’t sure I could even get hair bows made for the girls…but miracle of miracles, my scraps were just enough…barely enough! I rounded up every single scrap I could find on my cutting table and ones I had tossed aside and this is what was left from that fat quarter I started with. Not much, is it?

I used a piece of tulle (netting) for the back side of both bows…Here is Ten Ping’s tiny bow… it’s the tiniest bow I know I’ve ever made… there was no way to attach a snap clip to it, so I added a tiny white ball head pin and the winner can just stick it through the hair bow and into their dolls hair.

Cuteness Alert!!! Ten Ping and Noel look adorable!

If you need a fun start to your Saturday morning, you’ve come to the right place. Where else can you go and get a smile put on your face just by looking at doll dresses? Why, I Dream of Jeanne Marie’s…of course! Good news! My camera is working again. I took the battery out and then put it in again and viola…it worked! I captured the color of the dresses a little better with it instead of my phone.

Talk about using every spare scrap of this fat quarter; I managed to get 2 pairs of pantalettes made for my girls and only had to skimp a little bit on the waist area of Noel’s. I used a piece of stretch lace and made a sort of yoke for hers. It’s a bit higher than normal in the waist, but I didn’t want to trim it off and fray my fabric any lower than it already was. It doesn’t show anyway. Ten Ping’s worked out perfectly with the scrap I had for hers.

If you click on any picture it will enlarge.

The dresses now have a flower added with a few pearls sewn on and some leaves behind the flower. The belt goes around to the back and ties in a bow. It is stitched on so it won’t get lost.

Marilyn mentioned I should put something beside the dolls to remind everyone of just how small they are… I forgot, but will try to remember the next time I show pictures of them. Noel, is a Boneka/Effner doll and is 10″ tall; about like Patsy Tonner. Ten Ping, by Ruby Red Galleria, is a tiny little thing, standing only 8″ tall.

I only have a handful of scraps left and somehow, someway… I’m determined to make a hair bow for each girl. We’ll see if I can pull it off.

I love it when something this simple becomes a new favorite of mine…

That’s it for this Saturday… We are supposed to have lots of rain, but I hope the sun is shining where you are!

See you on Monday,
Blessings, Jeanne

Noel and Ten Ping in their sweet pink dresses…

I got ready to take my pictures of the girls in their dresses, and my camera wouldn’t work…either it wasn’t on the charger right and not charged up or the battery has conked out again… It might be time for a new camera… this is getting old. So I had to use my phone for these pictures. These dresses are kind of turning out like my last dress for Rebecca; the turquoise one. I couldn’t seem to capture the color of the beautiful fabric. The same is happening again. This is the daintiest, sweetest fabric you can imagine and it just sort of looks so so in my pictures.

I’m not finished yet, but I’ve made some progress since yesterday. I turned on a light for these pictures too, and even though the color is still washed out they do look better than yesterday’s pictures. Ten Ping wanted to wear her original wig with this dress, so I let her. I still have a few things left to do, but I think they are looking pretty cute on the girls… do you?

How about a little fashion show?

Well, this was a short post, but I hope it was sweet enough to hold you all day long! :o)

See you tomorrow,
Blessings, Jeanne
