…is done! I gave this Blythe scalp bangs. I love bangs and don’t see them as often anymore. This rooted scalp is listed in my Etsy shop at http://www.stephanieasmith.etsy.com and is ready for its forever (or for now:) head.
I’ve already chosen the colours for my next scalp on offer. Blonde, copper and rose. I am really looking forward to seeing these colours together!
Made it here to beautiful Berry Creek, California and we have been here nearly two weeks now! It is gorgeous here in the Mountains! We are nearly unpacked and have been setting up home and shop.
Of course, I have made time for my dolls! I knitted the rectangles from my own hand spun yarns for these sweater type vests going across the USA and assembled and finished them here. These are my first official dolly pictures in our new yard.
First, to begin where I left off, my old DeLuxe is now working fine. The problem with the feed dogs and tension was actually not a problem at all. My sewing machine has an unlabeled feature. Where the stitch length is regulated is a reverse placement. My husband asked me what does this do:
I went to demonstrate how it changes how many stitches per inch and was amazed that it started feeding the fabric to sew forward and now it works great as I am not pulling the fabric in the opposite direction that it was trying to sew. In my defense, if they had stamped a little ‘R’ somewhere it might have been a help.
And, in other news, my Blythe scalp has arrived! I have started rooting the hair and can’t wait to see how it turns out. I am not sure if she will still be a Prairie Faery when she is done. The closer my Blythe gets to the finish, the more she says that she would like bonfires at night, fishing trips in Summer and to go mudding in Spring. What a wild child she will be!
