New inventory in my Etsy shop. SIX outfits.

Quality control Raccoon is controlling quality...
Having had a blast re-creating SSP-039 to fit Kaye Wiggs and Iple KID, and having gotten COMPLETELY carried away and having fun... I now have six new outfits listed in my Etsy shop.

These are simpler than many of my outfits, so I can offer them at a price lower than my usual rates.  this does not mean the quality has lessened.  All the outfits are still completely hand sewn, and meet my exacting standards... (and have been approved by Rufus' watchful eye...)

In my Etsy shop in the "Handmade Doll Fashions" section.

Click on the images to take you to their individual Etsy Sales pages.

Here are the six lovely little outfits for Patience, mini Kaye Wiggs (14") And Iplehouse KID.

First up is our ever-cheeky Patience.  She's loving the laid back huckleberry feels, and really wishes Spring would pull its socks up and arrive.

And for my cute Mini Layla,  These ensembles:  The first one will not fit Iplehouse KID. The second two will, but it is a very tight fit!





And a couple for Iplehouse KID.  these can be worn by Mini Kaye Wiggs, and are a baggier fit, but I quite like the bagginess.

My personal favourites are the clown outfits.  I'm not a huge fan of clowns, but done right, dolls can look adorable in little clown costumes.

Next up, people keep asking me about SSP-005, the pinafore set for Patience (one of my bestsellers) and if that fits mini KW.  So that's what I'll be making next. I'll keep Iple KID in mind too.  :)

SSP-039V: Revamped pattern for Patience and now Kaye Wiggs 14" mini. Romper set. (Also Iple KID)

Finally I've gotten around to working on my existing patience patterns and fitting them to 14" Mini Kaye Wiggs girls.   this one is also easily adapted to fit Iplehouse KID, and I've given detailed but simple instructions for that on page 26.

*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 check here on my blog anyway, as the prices fluctuate, due to the international exchange rates and patterns may be cheaper here.  I always recommend comparing prices.

9.75 GBP

These look so cute on these little dolls.   I hope people enjoy making them up for Mini KW, and for Iple KID girls.

Becasue this is an existing pattern which I have revamped and enhanced, I was careful to keep all of the original content unchanged. So if you have bought this pattern in the past for Patience, all of that pattern and cutting information is still correct.

I have added the new pieces at the end, for 14" Mini Kaye Wiggs.  There are also simple instructions for altering all 3 versions of the rompers for Iplehouse KID. (The hat needs no alteration.)

If you have already bought this pattern, don't worry, I keep all my sales records and can check who has already bought the previous version.  If you have bought this in the past, I can send you this revamped version free of charge.

Three stunning outfits for Kaye Wiggs MSD girls

Rufus and myself have been sewing away like mad here at Raccoon HQ.   I'm happy to introduce three gorgeous new outfits for Kaye Wiggs MSD.

As it's the start of the year, we wanted to present something rather special.


Here they are all together. Don't they look lovely together.   Though photographing dolls is not the easiest thing in the world, let alone three of them together.  Once you get one perfect... another one falls over, and you're back to square one.

Here are the girls, finally nice and still.   The picture is a link that will take you to my Etsy shop, the 'Handmade Doll Fashions' section.

Having enjoyed all of these immensely, I've been reminded that I've produced nothing for my poor Mini Layla.   I think next, I'll be making up some of my earlier Patience Wilde patterns and fitting those to my Little Layla.

Will keep you posted!

Happy New Year! SSP-065: "My Posh Frock" for Kaye Wiggs MSD sized dolls.

First one for 2019!   A very popular design, this time drafted to fit Kaye Wiggs MSD dolls.  This will fit the original 18" MSD body, the newer 18" Abby body, and the slightly shorter 17" Mei Mei body.

*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.

EBAY: For patterns on CD rom. No VAT, no extra charge for the CD, Just the patterns themselves, and postage.  (However many patterns you order, they will come on one CD. This keeps production and  shipping costs to a minimum, a saving which I pass on to my customers.)

Or right here on the blog: (PayPal shopping cart)

After payment, I will email the files to you directly.  Please again, allow me 24 hours to email the files.  I live in the UK, and for overseas customers, if I'm asleep there is sometimes a delay.  Usually I can email the files straight away or at least within 12 hours.


 The petticoat is designed so that there is volume to support the dress, but not too much bulk at the hips.

The outfit can be worn with or without armlets, and the shoulder ruffle can be worn on or off-shoulder.

And here's the full ensemble, shown on each of the three doll bodies.

So that's my start to the year.  Lets hope there will be lots more sewing patterns over 2019.
