Purple Pastel Rainbow Reroot for Blythe

…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!

Newest Blythe Reroot is……..Wet!

Just a quick share…..I finished my newest Blythe doll reroot and am waiting on the hair to dry.

As you last saw it:

And, now:

Tonight, it will dry and tomorrow I will finally get to finish. What a great feeling!

Made It!!

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.

Both of these lovely sweaters can be found for sale in my Etsy shop at http://www.stephanieasmith.etsy.com

Also, I plan to reroot new Blythe scalps for sale. I went ‘shopping’ in my Etsy store and selected some lovely pastels. Here is pictures of the first of many soon to be available scalps:

I’m so excited to be working with some of my premium doll hairs. I plan to make many of these scalps for sale!!

In between these tasty treats, I am almost done with a black sheep helmet for Blythe and am dyeing several custom colours for some lovely return customers.

I may be on a new Coast, but my dolly passion follows me everywhere!

Vintage Sewing Machine Fixed and Reroot

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:

Stitch Length Regulator

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!
