Whether it's designing your own patterns or using a purchased pattern, being creative is what makes your crafts special. The faces I draw and paint on my dolls doesn't necessarily follow the specific pattern. I love to add my own personal touch when creating their personalities. This has to be the best part in creating my dolls -- or is it choosing the fabric?
At the moment, the only things I've dappled in the "designing world" are a few stitchery patterns. One day I hope to tackle doll patterns and wool patterns. A few of my favorite doll patterns are My Raggedy Dolls, Sweet Meadow Farms and Apple Orchards. Thank you ladies for creating some wonderful patterns.
I love reading your blogs with all the creative things you do. There is so much inspiration out there and many inspiring women and men. And to all my blogger friends - I might not always have to time to comment on your creations, but please know that I do read and keep up with all your beautiful work of arts. Soon, after retirement in about 8 weeks (but whose counting), I'll have more to time to get in those comments.
Here is the finished wall hanging I had posted earlier.
As you can see by the photo of the pattern by Threads that Bind, I tweaked it a little by adding the words "Kindred Spirits" instead of using the alphabet. By making this small change I created something special just for me! This will hang in my kitchen - and I love how it turned out.
Here's to continuing "being creative"
