These sets are composed by a BC Mouse Hat and a matching 100% wool felt little tuxedo jacket which have to be used on sleeveless tops or dresses.
They will be on my Etsy Shop in different times from today until tomorrow early morning (Italy time).I will upload a pic for each update.
I really hope you like them, I’m not a tailor but I had a lot of fun doing these!
Hello! As I wrote in my previous post, to celebrate Bambina Carabina 4th anniversary and to thank all of you who were so patient and without any BC update for a long time, I worked on a little set which I’ll give for free to the lucky one who will be choosen at random by Random.org.
How it works:
please put a comment (with your flickr name) under this post, I will give you a progressive number that I will show at the bottom of this post. You will have time until Sunday January 13rd midnight (Italy-Rome time).
On monday January 14th morning I will pick up a number, doing a screenshot of Random.org’s webpage and I will post it to my flickr stream.Then I will send a flickr mail to the lucky winner to arrange the shipping (shipping costs would be paid by me).
The little set is composed by:
– A navy blue mohair Granny Hat, with natural/sand color felt flowers, each petal is embroidered in sand color cotton yarn.There are deep red wooden beads on each flower.
–A party dress (pattern from Melissa Cabral ) done with a Liberty fabric I purchased in Paris one yer ago with a blue flower buds pattern.The skirt has two layers, the shorter one is finished off with a deep red cotton hand embroidery blanket stitch.The other layer has a cream and deep red rik-rak ribbon at the border.
On the chest I sewn a little wooden beads necklace.
-A raw edges sand color boiled wool felt jacket with four little “tortoise” buttons.
-A straw basket finished off with a sand and deep red woven ribbon.
Please consider I’m not a tailor so the set isn’t perfect ^__^
Good Luck and thank you for your support and touching emails in all these years!
I know I’m kind of vanished in the dolly world…Maany things are changing in my life and I’m trying to build what I hope would be my future job.It’s hard and I’m a kind of discouraged some times but for the first time in my life I totally love what I’m doing now.
I miss my dolly time and the dolly community immensely though, the good old times when I had free time to play around with my dolls, surfing into flickr, enjoying your pics, but now my web time has to be almost entirely dedicated to my job and public relations and there is no difference anymore between work and free time.SIGH!
I really feel upset for not having done any BC updates anymore, it’s making me feel like I’m neglecting my friends but really I have no time to breath, lately!😉
So I thought to do a BC free raffle for the new year, I will do a very special BC set that I’ll give as a gift to the lucky one who will have the right number which I will choose with random.org.
Many news soon!
PS To the ones who are waiting on my commission list, please understand!
For the same reason I’m not taking any commission anymore by now, sorry but I feel too bad in making you waiting for months and months.
PS again: if you want to know what I’m up to, have a look here and one of my current projects!
Maybe it’s autumn yet but I think I still prefer pop, summer colors instead for BC hats!
After a few updates with Eletrroshock hats, Caldinos (I really really love this new style!) and multicolor flowers Grannies, I found some more of the fluffy, multicolor, hairy yarns I got while in Finland.
So I quickly crocheted a funny, crazy update of Granny and Teddy Beanie hats and I left the last one for a special auction.
I hope you will like it!It’s an explosion of turquoise, white and bubblegum pink! One of those hats that will make you smile…!
Here’s the link to the 3 days auction!
Thank you for reading!
Hallo! Some summer time updates…
I had to stop for a while the commission list work as I’m having some supplies problems which I’m trying to solve, by now the stash I have will be only used for the regular shop updates, I’m letting you know when I’ll keep it moving again.
Sorry for who’s waiting!
During these 3 days I’m having on sale for a special ebay auction the last ever Black Elettroshock Hat: unfortunately I won’t be able to find this crazy vintage deadstock yarn again, so I thought it would have deserved a special “adoption” (-:
I have some hopes for the teal version but black seems impossible to find, I’m trying hard from an year as it’s a yarn from the eighties, with no luck.
These last three I’ve put on sale these days (2 teal ones were already sold on Etsy) were done by some little remains I was lucky to find while reorganizing my yarn stash!(-:
On ebay for a 3 days auction:
item number 190712689611
Thank you so much for your support again!
Spring has brought her first gift! I’m on the new number of My Muse magazine, in an article about the “Mad Hatters in the Blythe community!
For those of you who still don’t know it, My Muse is a very beautiful magazine about dolls, all of them, done in Italy by a crew of dolly lovers, but with an english text.
You can purchase it on paper but even download it both on your computer or your phone (search for My Muse Magazine in the App Store).
More info on the magazine official site or on its Facebook page !
Hello! I’m so busy these days: so behind for preparing my booth for Rome Dollshow (but luckly I was in time to donate one of my hats to the Charity Raffle!) and VERY behind with my commission list!
But lately I’ve felt very inspired for my regular updates, trying new combos, new shapes (did you enjoy the new Caldino hats and BC Crowns?)…more I was blessed by great swaps and gifts, one of these was with a friend on Flickr who donated me some scarves who she thoughts were made from a yarn who really liked a very rare one I purchased in Finand 2 years ago..I was able to turn them into yarn balls again and from a week I’m working on this new update which will be crazy and full of colors!
The first release will be on ebay and other ones (Blythe, Middie and Lati) will follow in the next few days in the shop.
All the hats in this update will have a super tiny “Smiling Face” copper charm on the side and the BC Teddy Bear hats have been embellished with sequins and a felt star which I purchased from Liberty some time ago and that was waiting for a special project.
You can see the ebay listing here .
I really love this update!
