life on repeat

Wood needles & wooden yarn, another Ranunculus cast on, this one in lacy eco friendly tencel. The Lykke Driftwoods are giving this slippery knit just enough enjoyable drag.

Iced coffee, always.

Swedish wooden shoes, more specifically: Cola brown Audubon Clogs by Troentorp.

Floral sundress made from a thrifted sheet. I left the sweet piped hem on the bottom and now I’m not entirely sure if this has just enough Half Pint (Laura Ingalls) potato sack cuteness or if it’s coming off as an outdated “modest” maternity look?

(p.s I’m not pregnant)

Kiki say, it’s so hot out, all we can do is sit inside and keep watch on the neighborhood.

Life at 1/6th

I went here…

Because I needed to make these…

A good friend made a proposition… she would supply the insanely gorgeous iron doll beds (we had both been lusting after on Etsy) if I would make the mattress, pillows and all the bedding! …um …YES! The bed is pricy, but is so incredibly well made, all by hand, welded solid and sturdy (1/6th is playscale, Barbie and Blythe size). You can buy miniature sheets and mattresses from some Etsy sellers as well, but at $30 a set that could easily get out of budget quickly! Making them myself, allows me to be super picky about the finishing & quality, I can design them exactly how I want, in whatever fabric I wish …cripes I may need a dolly linen closet (I swear I’m not weird!)

Give me a few days and after drafting patterns over and over, sample making, fabric shopping and working out all the kinks for a perfect fit,  I arrived at wonderful! I am so pleased with how they came out, and a little shocked at the perfectness of them! The pictures are of the sets I sent to my dear friend, vintage hankie coverlets and wooly plaid blankets included! Sweet Dreams girls ♥

Then I made this… (for me ..but Lex will probably steal it :)

…nothing better than gorgeous stitchery in fatty aran ..thick like pancakes ♥
The Pattern: Cabernet Hat – aran by Monika Sirna.

Making that lead to making these…

I scaled the Cabernet Hat pattern down (because I love a challenge) then used tiny wool and tiny needles x 2 for me and one for you ♥

The dress is a modified (made just a smidge larger and longer) garter edge version of the Lati Yello Dress by Shelley Selwood.

eek it’s so cute! I am completely in love with tiny things!!
