New Sparkly Leotard Fabrics

I'm so excited about these new Sparkly dancewear fabrics I purchased.  For a few years I've been searching for a new supplier of quality 4-way stretch dancewear fabrics, and I've finally found a great supplier of these fabrics.I recently purchased some fabrics from them in beautiful sparkly colors.  When the fabrics arrived they were even more beautiful than the pictures!  I couldn't wait to start sewing them up into 18 inch doll clothes leotards.  Can you image the American girl doll McKenna wearing one of these leotards during her gymnastic competitions? In this photo the American girl doll Emily is performing a gymnastic fl... » Read More

Hi from Kellie!

Hello everyone! I haven't written my story on my mom's blog, yet, so I thought I'd take a minute and say "hi!".  My name is Kellie, and I'm an American Girl doll!  (I am not a historical doll, but one of the doll's where the mother gets to pick out the hair and eye color.)  My first mom named me Kellie, but eventually she stopped playing with me, and I was adopted by the mother I now have. It's fun living in my adopted mom's house.  She loves to sew doll clothes, and I get to model them!  So also has other American Girl dolls, and Springfield collection dolls, so I have Lots of sisters to play with!   Pajama parties are ... » Read More

Happy Sock Monkeys!

Have you ever wondered why these Sock Monkey hats look so happy?Well, I've been thinking on that topic the last few days, and here's what I have come up with!1) They know that they are going to be worn on someone's head instead of being worn as a sock and being stepped on all day!2) They are not going to have to smell someones smelly feet all day!3) They remember their ancestors started out as socks!4) They love the fact that they are each handmade with love and care!!5) They each have their own personality, and really like being unique!!Of course, they are still monkeys and sometime like to look silly by making sill facial expressions!Â... » Read More

Happy Birthday America!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day with family and friends celebrating the birthday of the United States of America!Each year as I watch the fireworks I like to reflect on the fact that back in 1776 our founding fathers, by listening to God's leading, believed in freedom so much that they were willing to take a stand and form this new nation, even when it meant treason if they were caught.  We are still reaping the benifits of their willing to stand for what was right!I thank and Praise God for the blessing he has given us!!  Happy Birthday America!Tracy... » Read More

Sock Monkey hat photos!

The weather forcast for yesterday was rain, but I had sock monkey hats that I wanted to get pictures of, so I could start listing them in my artfire store.  I rushed outside with a baby doll, a step ladder (prop), camera, and of course the sock monkey hats. Now I am in no way a photographer.  If fact, I'm been communication with a photographer to set up a time to get professional photos taken with real live kids modeling the hats.  But I love my sock monkey hats and could hardly wait to start listing them, so I thought I'd snap some pics until I could get the professsional one taken.  And if I say so myself I'm really happy wi... » Read More

It's Monday!!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday afternoon.As I was eating lunch today, I was thinking about perspectives.  When I worked in a factory, I wasn't thrilled when Monday mornings rolled around.  It meant leaving my sewing machine to go work at my day job.  I liked my co-workers, and didn't mind the job I was doing, but still it was hard to see Monday come.  It meant I wouldn't have much time to sew until the following weekend. Now my day job is my business TracysDesigns1!  Monday's now mean looking forward to another full week of sewing & designing my doll clothes. Picking pretty colors and making outfits for the "girly" ... » Read More
