Hoopla is Open for Business!

I have started selling my crocheted goodies again! Right now these cute lil' minions are my biggest seller.
And I just started making hats for American Girl dolls. Super cute!
Finally, a special request for a Minnie Mouse hat!

Here is a link to my Facebook page for Hoopla!

Soft Like a Kitty, Guinea Pig

My daughter begged me to buy the Dolls & Daydreams guinea pig pattern. I finally gave in and let her pick some soft fur fabric, it was a bit pricey, but totally worth it. According to her it is as soft as our cat, and I have to agree. He is super soft and super cute! She insisted that he must be normal colors like a real guinea pig. So here he is. Within a minute of me posting this pic on my facebook, I already had an order for another one! The pattern is fairly easy and of course, super cute!!

Robot Parade Robot Parade (of 1)

I purchased this robot pattern from Dolls & Daydreams and made a special order for a little boy's birthday. This pattern is adorable but I'm not sure I will be making many more of these. The tiny pieces, details and all of the hand stitched parts wore me out and the entire doll took me about 6-8 hours to complete. And I am not a novice at sewing dolls. It was NOT fun. But it did turn out to be a completely adorable doll.


I made this lovely little American frog for a friend's kindergarten class. The school is on an air force base, so naturally he had to support the troops with a red white and blue outfit.

You can find the pattern at Dolls & Daydreams.

My daughter is obsessed with having me make her dolls and animals to play with.
And as usual I headed on over to Dolls & Daydreams . I had to purchase a pattern of a girl to make my daughter a mini of herself.
This pattern was perfect because it has glasses to make for the dolls.

Here she is with a retro tie dyed dress & funky cute tennis shoes. My daughter picked the striped cherry fabric for her legs because she is always wearing funky patterned knee socks. It worked out perfectly!

Here she is sporting her glasses, a top, a leopard skirt & her maryjanes.

And finally, here they are together.
Long brown hair & matching purple glasses & of course another fancy outfit! 

Oink Oink & Whoo Whoo

I had a lovely return customer ask if I would be able to make her an adorable owl
and a sweet little piggy.
But of course I could!
I hopped on over to Dolls & Daydreams again.
I LOVE her patterns.

The cutest little piggy in her darling red top & denim skirt with matching heart adorned shoes.

Isn't this just the sweetest little owl?
I love the chevron on her legs and her sweet little tennis shoes.
She is just lovely!

A Ruff Life

I have been loving the patterns from Dolls and Daydreams. My nieces and a nephew moved to Okinawa last year and I have been swapping goodies with my lovely sister in law. So I decided to make some gifts for the kiddos. I made them each an adorable dog in their favorite colors.

Three little dogs, red, blue & purple.

I LOVE this color combo, it turned out so wonderfully!
I then had someone special order a pup for their newborn grandson. This chap got suited up for his arrival!

The pattern for these pups can be purchased here.

A Dear Deer

This sweet little dear was made from a pattern by Dolls and Daydreams which is available for purchase here. I love the little maryjane shoes and the accessories!

Here B has dressed her in matching pajamas. So adorable!
