The miniature journey continues!

I wanted to make an entire bedroom scene, but given how I take photos… decided to split it into several different scenes so as to not overwhelm the viewer :)

This scene is focused on a mini clothes rack where you’d hang your clothes and put any used pieces in the laundry basket. Admittedly, the laundry bag turned out a little more festive than anticipated, but I wouldn’t mind owning one irl if I came across something similar.

Everything is handmade (including Grumpy Mcgrumpface) and the framed print is actually up for sale in my etsy. It’s a copy of an original gouache painting I did featuring some Canadiana, and a larger version for real-sized walls should be available fairly shortly as well.

Meet Hijarbie, The Mini Hijab-Wearing Fashionista

24-year-old Haneefah Adam of Nigeria, wasn’t seeing any Barbies dressed in the same way she did — wearing modest clothing that covers the body. So she started an Instagram  account, called Hijarbie where she showcases Barbie in a variety of hand-sewn modest outfits and hijabs.

“I want to inspire the Muslim girl. It’s about having a doll that looks like her, that represents her own cultural and religious background” 

“It’s important to create a sense of value in the Muslim child, especially the girl child,” Adam told Mic. “They become more confident, more driven, they believe more in themselves, which leads to an appreciation of herself and her modest lifestyle and upbringing. Instead of dressing up her dolls in clothes she wouldn’t wear, hijabifying it will create a sense of belonging and hopefully make a positive impact." 

Final demo!  This one is the sleeveless version of the dress that can be worn over or under a blouse, pinafore-style paired with a bell-sleeved jacket with a mandarin collar.  Also a different underskirt from previous versions: more A line so the line of the dress is smoother (both underskirts will be included, too)

Pattern will be available this Friday :)  Earlier for subscribers.  And remember, you can win these dresses in the monthly giveaway, too!

Just got back from fabric shopping in NYC!  Oh man, so many gorgeous fabrics that just do not work at all for 1-2′ tall dolls.  Breaks my heart, but still fun to look at :)

While ‘doll scale friendly’ fabrics were much harder to find, I did still find plenty of unique fabrics to use in some upcoming designs, so I’m all excited for that!  Yeah, new fabric <3
