Howdy all. I was inspired by Michelle Pipeling the Ambassador of the Deco Fun Bow Maker on her You Tube Channel. (Click on her name for the direct link). I saw that more rods are available for the Deco Fun Bow Maker and I did not hesitate to put my order in!
I made the large bow using four additional rods or a total of six rods! You have to see my You Tube tutorial to see how easy this was made as well as all of the other flowers and bows that are pictured above.
I also made all of the rosette flowers and additional rosette layers with my Deco Fun Bow maker.
A layered lace bow
and additional bows!
All of the major ribbons and lace ribbons are from England and sold by Deco Fun Bow Maker. I was gifted these ribbons, satin fabric pieces and lace ribbons by Deco Fun Bow Maker. Thank you so much!! I love your products and highly recommend!!! Happy Crafting!!

Howdy all! Hope all is well with you. I just finished my newest customized Pullip doll and I named her Katomo! Her name is a mix of my hubby's deceased parents, Katie and Tomo.
I used Pebeo Fantasy Moon paints on her eye chips. Her eyes are a deep blue and her eye lids are a shimmery pink. After putting her all together then applying her wig I thought of what on earth will I make for her outfit???? I have several patterns but then saw a You Tube Tutorial by The EternalSnowKiss https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hm1cMiA2dU. They even offer a free pattern so I gave this a try. ( The fabric at the bottom of her dress was gifted to me by Michelle Pipeling. Thanks Michelle!! ) The fit was perfect and so easy to make. Once I got the dress all sewed it was time to add embellishments! Now that's where the fun is!!!!
After decorating her dress I knew she needed a head dress!
Many layers of pure gorgeous goodies here and the blue flowers are custom colored with Glimmer Mist sprays.
This is the back view of her dress.
Her umbrella was a gift from the owner of Pullipstyle.com It was white and I also used glimmer mist to add some color.
Just a closer view of her dress.
I hope you are inspired to try to make you own Pullip doll.
Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!!!!!

Howdy all! Wow it's been a hot summer and I finally got some mojo this week. This project starts with a Styrofoam ring I purchased at the Dollar Tree. Immediately I'm thinking of making some kind of wreath. Well the ring sat in my craft room for a week.
When I started this project I had no idea what I actually was going to do other than wrap that ring with fabric. I am over the moon with the final wreath!
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!!!!

Howdy Everyone! I'm so excited to show you my newest customized Pullip Doll. She is made from the Make It your Own Tan Pullip kit. Kits are available at Pullip style or JPGroove. I purchased her wig at JPGroove.
Her officer uniform is from Mike, the owner of Pullipstyle. My first couple of orders were rather large and he sent me three Pullip outfits as a gift. Thank You so Much Mike!!! Using a ready made outfit sure made making this doll really easy.
I used Pan Pastels and Prisma colored pencils for her make up. Her eye chips are done with Fantasy Prisme Paints. Her eye lids are done with acrylic metallic paints.
Her wig was so easy to apply and it is just beautiful.
Officer Pullip is so happy that you stopped by and so am I!! Have a Happy Crafting Weekend!

Howdy all! Let me introduce to you Louisa! She is my newest custom Pullip doll. I confess that the process of making her clothing took me awhile. My mojo was in super slow gear. And..... I ending up hand sewing all of the lace onto the dress.
The long ruffled over skirt is removable. I had a dream of her headpiece, so as soon as I awoke this morning I braided three pieces of lace together and formed a ring. I left the dangles and cut each into two pieces. Next applied three different kinds of flowers, bows and beads.
I am so happy with my finished Louisa. She is so beautiful.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you are inspired to Craft something!
God Bless and Happy Crafting!!
And I must show you her dress by itself and another use for the over skirt
Over skirt used as a cape!
