wee prototype


Oh, no! This pocket sized princess did not sleep well at all. What could be the problem? It's almost as though there is something small, annoying and legume-y under the mattresses.

This idea has been a sketch in my notebook for far too long and I'm enjoying bringing it to life. I'm still tweaking and thinking through accessories/construction, so you'll see more of her later. Soon, I hope. I'm waiting for more wooden beads to arrive. All the tiny mattresses I'm making are reminding me of this lovely gift my bestie gave the girls a few years ago. Still being used!

Every free minute I have lately I spend holed up in my craft studio just making stuff for fun because I can see the end of summer break coming. Too many ideas are competing for my attention right now and it's really hard to focus on one to completion. Crafting tangents abound. I also fit in a fun project for UK craft mag Mollie Makes, which I hope to tell you more about later.

    1. Hey, Grandma G, but of course. Don't I show you pretty much everything I make, good or bad? Unless I'm under legal injunction not to. :-)

  3. No, you only show the good stuff. I haven't seen anything bad yet. :)

  4. I've been following your blog for a while, I love it! I've tried making those tiny altoid creations of yours, but I'm definitely not good in the bite size stuff like you are! Keep up these super cute creations!

  5. Can't wait to see all your other projects. I really love this!

    I have Katy Kitty pattern, I think. I need to make her soon, too. Sigh. I need more hours in a day! ;-)

    Let me know when you're ready!

    1. Mama Pea, thanks a bunch! Can't wait to share. If you figure out how to generate more hours, can you let me know? I want in on that.

  6. I love it! I don't eat Altoids so I have yet to make any little pocket pals . . . surely an oversight on my part.

    1. Skooks, you don't have to eat Altoids. You can buy empty tins! But I prefer to eat them. :-)

  7. Any chance this pattern will be available before October? I'm a Brownie Troop leader and we are going to be doing a project called "World of Girls" -- I think the girls could make these as part of the project!

    1. Hi, Meg! It should be available sometime in Sept. However, it's not meant to a be a kid's craft per se. Some parts might be difficult for young children to do. Older school age kids might be able to handle it.
