Loving the vintage vibe!

Here's where I'll share my obsession with vintage fabric! It's taking over my house!

I'll sharing with you my favorite fabrics, my 'adventures" in dressmaking using vintage patterns, some home furnishing ideas and no doubt I'll be telling you about any exciting finds! Love to hear about your vintage adventures too!

My first Shop was AudreysCat ( online shop May 2010) , but my new logo / name - WittyDawn , arrived Jan 2014.

I hope you'll have time to browse my shops too !

Obsessed with RAG DOLLS

Oh dear can't seem to stop making these....

BUT what a lovely way to make use of and also display some of my lovely vintage fabrics.

It was inevitable really that I would end up making these I suppose and it was a case of the design being right almost straightway . As usually I started with drawing our a design on paper an made a prototype. This was the first one and really all  I had to do was make a few changes to the arms and legs and very minor tweaks to head and body. Each one  take 4 to 5 hours to make and each one is UNIQUE.

There's a bit animal theme - so far I have BearCubs, KittyKats and RabbitRascals although I expect I'll do a few more variation ! Each one  take 4 to 5 hours to make and each one is UNIQUE.

There's a heck of a lot of pretty pale skinned Rag Doll girls out there so I though I ought to introduce a bit more variety too :)

Anyway you can find them in both my Folksy and Etsy shops . I hope you love them as much as I enjoy making them

( as I am a twin - I have a brother - I have made a few sets of twins too )
