Blythe Swap: Time Traveling Blythe

Our most recent Blythe Swap had the theme: time traveling Blythe. This was up to interpretation by each person so they could make things from their partner’s favorite period(s) of time.

I got a real haul from my awesome partner Angela!

Just look at all of this! Hand-sewn and -knit clothing, hair clips, pendants, embroidery floss, and fabric! Such a lot of awesomeness!

I love the way all of these separates work together – I’ll be mixing and matching these happily.

And here’s what I sent:

These have a 60s/70s vibe and I had a lot of fun making things with these bold prints. I made two knit mini skirts, two sewn maxi skirts, two a-line dresses, three crop tops, one vest, two knit shawls, and an assortment of hair clips and mini pins. I’m so pleased with this swap – it was great to make and great to receive!

Fun in the Sun!

I just got my swap package from the June Blythe Swap and it is AWESOME! I was so excited that I got paired up with Holly, who I met last summer at Angela‘s Blythe meetup. Holly also has a Boston Terrier, likes skulls, and has probably a bunch of other stuff in common with me.

She put together a picnic package! How cool is that?

I had noticed this dress in Holly’s photostream recently and admired it greatly, and she totally sent it to me! I love it. I think that I especially like it because I wouldn’t necessarily think to put these two fabrics together, but they work together really well.

Thanks mega, Holly!

The July swap sign-up is open right now, and the theme is “Road Trip” – I’m looking forward to it!
