Sew Cute Tuesday

Welcome to the first Sew Cute Tuesday at Better off Thread!  I’ve taken over the Tuesday link-up party for Misty at Creative Itch and I am very excited to be hosting.

Each Tuesday, link-up a sewing related project you have blogged about in the last week.  Then, after you link-up, stop on by a few of the other blogs participating in the party and give them some love. Next Tuesday, I’ll feature 2-3 projects that caught my eye.

I don’t have any projects to feature this week, since, well, it’s the first week!  I’ll get the party started by showing you what I’ve been up to:


I finished this doll for my daughter ON Christmas Eve (Major procrastinator right here).  I used the Wee Wonderfuls Kit Chloe & Louise Pattern for the doll.  The dress is my own pattern and is made from a Robert Kaufman dot fabric.  Please ignore the lack of shoes.  The cobbler has been on holiday vacation (that’s me!).

This was the third Wee Wonderful doll I made. You can see the other two here and here.


I think my favorite part is the thick, wooly, yarn hair.

Sadly, my daughter wants NOTHING to do with the doll, even though she loved the other two.  She would much rather play with Lightning McQueen and Thomas the Train, like her big brother.  Kids.

It’s your turn to show off what you’ve been up to!  Link-up below:
