Dianna Effner Little Darling and other 13" doll Ensembles

I have been lately sewing for my newest member of my model doll family, Savannah. She is a Mini Maru designed by Dianna Effner and the same size as the beautifully hand painted Little Darling dolls. Using my english smocking and careful machine and hand stitching these four piece outfits have been a lot of fun to create. Each ensemble includes a bonnet, dress, slip and pantaloons.

Zippered bag, fully lined and accented with original drawing on fabric

I recently finished a batch of little zippered bags featuring my hummingbird sketches. These are fully lined with a coordinating fabric. Some are accented with an embroidery stitch or two mainly bullion roses and also small buttons. This small organizer bag would be great for make-up, travel, a purse organizer, for school supplies, art supplies or sewing supplies. It would make a very nice teacher or hostess gift.
