This morning I did the drawings (actually random number generators) for the nine dresses I posted as a pay-it-forward. I’ve noted here where the person commented, as there were comments on a couple of the places this posted (all entries were weighted evenly).
And the winners are:
A (green dress) – Sal Dean (Facebook)
B (pink floral hankie dress) – Donna Hyland Tkachuk (Facebook)
C (pink knits dress) – Julieta A (Youtube)
D (floral top dress) – Mandy Riggs (blog)
E (sweater top dress) – Elisia Von Finsterwald (Facebook)
F (faux suede top dress) – Pipa V (Youtube)
G (brown dress) – Colleen Vaught (Facebook)
H (apron dress) – Heather Roy (Facebook)
I (floral under pink dress) – Robyn McMurry (blog)
Congratulations, folks! If you are a winner, please contact me with your shipping info! 🙂
Another coat, this time with a more a-line shape and some strategically placed rows of garter stitch to emphasize the princess style. It’s worked all in one piece – the body worked flat and the sleeves picked up and worked in the round – and requires NO SEAMING (and everyone rejoices!).
It’s time for a Blythe pay-it-forward!
I’ve been making dresses just for funsies, and now I’m giving them away in a pay-it-forward. Check out the Blythe Pay-it-forward group.
Leave a comment with your name and the one(s) you’d like to win – I’ll do a random drawing for each dress. Let me know what you like about it/them! I’ll do the drawing on Sunday, July 8. Shipping is on me, and international is just fine.
May’s Blythe Swap theme was Raindrops and Umbrellas – perfect for spring here in North America. I swapped with Carrie, who is an awesome swap partner (we’ve swapped before), so I was really excited. We both agreed that things that are garden-related fit right into this theme as well.
I received such an amazing package! Carrie included outfits for both Neo and Middie Blythe, as well as a bunch of cute accoutrements and even furniture!
I also had a lot of fun making things for Carrie. I had found some vintage hankies and scarves at recent estate sales, so I used those to make some of the dresses I sent. Of course I also made some handknits!
It’s been ages since I’ve made time to update things over here. Hopefully I can get back in the swing. I’ve also been slacking at making time for pattern publishing – I’ve still been drafting and testing knitting patterns, but haven’t made time to write them up. Again, here’s to getting back into it.
This is a cute little dress for Blythe that is so quick to knit up. It’s super satisfying and uses fingering weight yarn, so it isn’t quite as fiddly for those who dislike using small needles.
It starts out worked flat, but then is joined in the round for most of the bodice, which allows for a relatively shapely fit. You can consider it complete as is, or add some embellishment.
In other news, this girl finally has a name: Sage.
