So the other day at Old Navy I found two little girl's shirts for $1.99 and thought to myself, "Hmm, this would make a cool refashion project". So after having them hang out in my Sew Happy Place ... I decided that today was the day.
After about an hour, this is what I came up with. I love it! I hope my little Gigi loves it too. Come to think of it, I may just have to make one for myself. Happy Thursday!

Ah, I just completed another doll order...whew. And let me tell ya, working in this sewing room is not easy. Why you ask? Well, this room has to be the warmest room in my whole house (besides the attics of course)...even with the ceiling fan going on and a/c too! LOL
So, as for my day thus far...well...I am still in my pj's! I know...it's almost 5 o'clock...hey, it's hot outside and the pool is closed so seriously why get dressed right? Haha.
Hope you enjoy my new pic of the doll. I call her Sonnie, but her new Mommy may change her name and that's totally cool.

Here are two things I made as a thank you to my friend Lydia who designed my new business cards. I love, love these outfits. I am adding brother/sister outfits to my site. What do you think about that?

Here are just a few of the dolls I have recently made for customers. I absolutely love these dolls! Now, I am so new on how to upload pics so any advice on how to do this better...please share with me.
The ones in the far right were dolls I donated to CraftHope for the Hope for Haiti campaign. I call them my Cupie Dolls. I love the heart shaped mouth...What do you think?

So, it has come to my attention that I have not posted in a while. Let me tell ya, this Mama had no idea her summer would be so busy...but I can say I am blessed to be busy. We have been out of town for graduations/parties/dances and have had the pleasure of having company over. Now that it seems that we will be home for more than a week I am going to do my best to post often. I am happy to say that I am launching a new Etsy site on August 1st. The new shoppe will be http://www.gigibelledesigns.etsy.com/ . Thanks to a dear friend, I now have amazing new business cards with an awesome logo! Thanks Lydia! I cannot tell ya how awesome it feels to be proud of handing out my cards.
In my shoppe I plan on having much of the same items, but will be adding a few more things such as napmat covers, hair clips and wel...I guess you will just have to check it out for yourself. Oh, don't forget to follow me on twitter (same twitter site-mamidesigns) and post comments too as I am going to be doing giveaways on this blog! Woo Hoo...I have always wanted to do a giveaway, but now I just need to find people to giveaway to. So tell everyone you know about me and stay tuned.
Here are just a few dolls I have been working on. Orders can still be made on my http://www.mamidesigns.etsy.com/ site.
