Making small things

I am preparing to sew hearts and dotee dolls
smalll things - to have something to give away

I was looking in my scrap basket and found enough to make
about a hundred dotee dolls and up to two hundred hearts
Probably i will stop long before....


The mess is growing when I am searching for embellishments
beads rings sequins threads ribbons felt quilting-thread



Karoline came to life leaning on a big pin pillow 



Then there are red-haired Jabuka (the name means apple in Croatian,
chosen because of the apple fabric)
and the blue-eyed Specky (named for her spectacles)

------
The peonies from the garden 
they lasted about one week -
now at the slightest bump they drop their petals

  4. I bet the peonies perfume the house with their scent.
    The dotee dolls are packed with charm. Love the names you have given them, too.

  6. Those peonies are so beautiful! I love making hearts and I used to make dotee dolls as well. If you ever would like to do a heart and doll swap let me know and I will swap with you. I used to make them and swap all the time and then they seemed to lose their appeal for swapping.:) They are fun to make.
