Lately 08

Aloha, lovelies! I am back with a couple of updates and peeks at some new illustrations. 

Last month I had the wonderful pleasure of working with Anita from the stunning brand of bridal robes  Girl With A Serious Dream. How amazing is it that she makes all of these lace and silk beauties herself in her studio? What a dream! I can't wait to share the illustrations we came up with for her website. These are some sneak peeks of the work in progress. After spending hours drawing these pieces, I now know those lace patterns better than I know the back of my own hand!

I am also very happy to share a post that I recently wrote for Crafty's blog with some fabric drawing tips inspired by that project. Check it out here.  

It feels great to be blogging again. I've missed it so much! I wish I had more time for it because I have so many ideas and things I would love to share on the blog. We'll see what makes the cut.

Update + new download links

Hey there! Long time no see, huh? A few months have passed since I started my blogging hiatus to focus on a "secret" project. Well, the hiatus is not over just yet but I wanted to check in and also update the paper doll's download links while I'm at it. 

Some of you have been able to download the files, but a lot of you have had problems with the links. I have a couple of theories, but I'm not exactly sure what the problem is. In an attempt to fix it, I re-uploaded the paper doll and all the clothes sets. So, if you have been unable to download them yet, you can go give the new links a try. Hopefully, they will work better this time.

I started drawing a fall/winter set of clothes a few months ago but things have been so busy that I haven't made much progress with that so far. I hope I can at least finish it before winter comes and goes!

Just in case I don't pop in during the next few weeks, I want to wish you all a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year!

Below are the links to all downloadable paper dolls and clothes.

• Ronnie: second set
• Ronnie: third set

Paper Doll Clothes Printables III

Here you have a new sheet of printable clothes for your paper doll, Ronnie.

I wanted to get it up today to thank you for bearing with me while I neglect my blog for a while - but it's all for a great project so it's quite alright. I appreciate all of the comments and kindness you've shown towards me and my work.

Thank you! ♥

I also want to say that some of you have mentioned how you are having issues downloading the files correctly. I've looked into it, the original files are all ok and I have no idea what the problem might be. I'm so sorry for any inconvenience. If you are trying to download any of the paper doll PDFs at any moment and you encounter problems you can just leave me a comment with your email and I'll send the file straight to your inbox as soon as possible.  

 You can start downloading the printable A4 file immediately by clicking HERE, and you can see all previous paper doll printables here. Have fun!

A little update + a knitting work in progress

Happy Monday ! This past weekend was a bit unusual for me. Not because I spent the whole time working on a project - I always do that and with a smile on my face, might I add - but because said project is something that I hadn't imagined I would be doing. I mentioned it in a few comments before so it might not be a huge surprise, but I will still ask for a drum roll anyway .... I am creating a downloadable pdf pattern of the Chloe Jacket.   

Right off the bat, I knew that making a pdf pattern wasn't going to be something I would dislike, so I was eager to get started and learn all about the process. But I never anticipated how much I was going to enjoy it! There is still a long way to go but I am loving every delicious second of sewing toiles, doing fittings, digitizing the pattern, making adjustments, designing layouts, and so on. 

You must be asking yourself "what does this have to do with the knitting photos?". The connection is that I am knitting a pair of gloves for the first time (as in: fingersss!) during the little breaks that I am taking from working on the pattern. 

So, if the blog posts start becoming scarce around here, you'll know that it's precisely because I am hard at work behind the scenes.

I also mentioned in a previous post that I was redesigning the whole blog and was almost finished. Well, it's still almost finished but there is a little coding problem that I haven't been able to figure out. After I decided I was going to make the Chloe pattern I knew that I was close to having too much on my plate so I've put the redesign plans on hold for now. Who knows, maybe I might have it ready around the time I release the pattern -- but don't hold me to that, pretty please.

I wish you a great start to the week!
