SSP-064: New sewing pattern for Dianna Effner Little Darling dolls.



Here's the latest, hot off the Raccoon HQ workdesk. This one is the version of "Playtime" for Little Darling.  It also fits the new Mini Maru hard-bodied dolls.   I have two of these and they both look charming in this ensemble.



*Available in my Etsy shop:

*Etsy will charge EU customers VAT (This does not affect America or other non-EU countries).  I always recommend people to look in my Craftsy store anyway, as the prices fluctuate, due to the international exchange rates and may be cheaper.  I always recommend comparing prices.

There are two versions of the little play-dress.





With Bloomers:




And a petticoat:



And here are the outfits on my two hard-body Mini Maru girls.  I love this outfit on them!




Hope you enjoy this!

Not sure what's coming next.  I'll be finishing up some outfits and listing those.  I want some pretties in my Etsy shop for Christmas, so I'll probably be concentrating on outfits for a few weeks.

New art blog



I'm so shy of showing my art, which is why I tend to post it on Pinterest and scuttle away to hide! So I've started a new art blog.  This will contain a bit more of my thoughts on the pieces and the media used, etc.

Please check it out here:

SSP-063: "Playtime" sewing pattern for A Girl for all Time



I know I'm quiet lately, but I am working away in the background, in between taking art breaks!  I hope the wait is worth it.

If you do buy from me here on the blog, and you live in the EU, the rules state that I don't have to charge you VAT as it's a direct sale. Once you have cleared checkout, I will email the pattern files to you directly. Please allow me 24 hours, because of time zones. Usually it will be far quicker than that.

You can find the sales pages at the top of the blog, in tabs for each section. I will email you the pattern PDF files directly, after you've cleared checkout. Click this link to email me, if you have any queries.   I have two paper sizes, US Letter for America, and A4 for Europe.  LET ME KNOW YOUR COUNTRY, FOR THE CORRECT PAPER FORMAT.

It's the "Playtime" design, adapted here for our AGAT girls.  I love the style on these wee lasses.




The ubiquitous petticoat.  ( I usually feel I have to include one.  They really do improve the shape of a dolly frock.)




And we all love bloomers...




I'll be repeating this design for Little Darling next.  It will be re-drafted to fit LD perfectly.  She'll look very cute in this, along with her little Boneka sisters in matching outfits.

In the meantime, I'm feeling a bit burnt out, so am having sporadic art breaks. Yes, still.  It's sort of working out at one week of sewing, one week of painting.  I don't want to neglect my business, or my lovely customers, so am always on hand near my computer to tackle queries and try to help out.   On the other hand, I can't afford to get totally burnt out, and art is helping me switch off a bit.

So going may be a bit slower, but these patterns will keep coming!
