Neglected Site

I know I have been very bad at neglecting my dolls in the last few years but I hope it will change once more this summer! No, I have no specific plans right now to do anything special but I know I want to pick up at least one naked doll and make her a dress. I have a Lamilly I got as a first edition during the Kickstarter and she is still in her box. I want to work with my patterns and fabric once more and hope inspiration will strike sometime soon… perhaps between other projects like the vests, diaper bag liner, tunics, pants and jackets that are already on my list.

Keep an eye out eventually I’ll come back here as dolls are one of my primary loves for sewing!

Single Patterns will be Available Here!

Craftsy where you will find individual patterns by Sue’s Tiny Costumes for dolls, bears and other crafts. Coming SOON! A new craft and pattern marketplace.

Sewing Classes

Sewing classes are a valuable tool and Craftsy has a number of great ones!

Would you like to see Sue’s Tiny Costumes offer classes? If so please let me know!

What’s next?

I know I have not done a pattern in a very long time but if I was to start up drafting once more what doll and what styles would you like to see?

I have patterns that are incomplete for Gene, Kitty, Tiny Kitty, Barbie, and Urban Vita. Most of the styles are historic and I am wondering if a sci-fi or cyber punk or even Game of Thrones inspired patterns would be welcome…. Kelly as Arya Stark perhaps? Tiny Kitty Collier as Cersi Lanister? Urban Vita as Melissandre? I have precious few men dolls but I could do a male Dollfie as Jamie Lanister in armor or Rob Stark or John Snow. I guess you can guess what I’m a fan of.  Other ideas might be The Musketeers or other favorite shows.

I am staying away from miniatures for the moment as I have issues with super fine motor skills that I hope will resolve this summer.

Anyone want to offer up doll/costume combos?

Miniature Pattern Design Gallery

Use the menus to navigate to the Miniature Doll Patterns!

Design Alterations…

I’ll be focusing on suggestions for design change ideas and alterations that can be made to one pattern I offer. This may include fabrics, color changes or physical changes to the actual pattern for a new look. If you have requests for design changes to a pattern I offer drop me a note and I’ll try to post them here. When or if I make examples of said changes I’ll make sure to post photos as well.

Enjoy!

Wishful thinking or procrastination?

Time to sew? I wish I had time for sewing and I suppose I do I just have chosen to not sew in a while. There are a are a variety of reasons such as the garage is a mess, the floor is very cold, my suplies are a disaster zone but all of those are excuses and can easily be fixed. I’m now working on building a new routine to do writing each day with one site per day as a goal.

A secondary goal would be to get ahead writing and free up time further but first lets get daily down. I have time set aside to work on some ideas for a couple dolls and just need to sit still long enough with the right computer to do them. I also need to just go clean and complete some long term projects to fix the issues I have with not wanting to be out in the cold garage. Someone want to poke way me to get moving towards my goals?
