I have loved sewing dolls and using Fiskars sewing tools as well. This is one of my fave posts...

Hi all - a bit of a creative diarrhea here.
And a confession: I'm obsessed with dolls at present. And Alice in wonderland... I blame Lynne Phelps over at the Altered Alice blog for putting out yet another great inspirational Challenge. But I did have to share this with our FiskarsCraft readers too.... Go here to see my other dolls.
This month we were to include a tea cup or tea pot.
Yes she is Alice.... I know Alice - I know him anywhere! I know him anywhere....
With this face and these eyes I think its evidence enough to say she has spent too long with the Mad Hatter. What is in that tea? What was in that upelkuchen or that Drink me drink?
Eyes made with polymer clay. I Asked the Fiskateers what colour I should do her eyes and Bronwyn mentioned the above colours and that really struck the right cord with me and this doll. Thanks Bronwyn.
Cheeks are coloured with stampin up stamp pad regal rose and sponged on.
I hand stitched her hair, the black buttons and the neckline of the dress.
I used Fiskars New Titanium rotary cutter for cutting out the dress and tea cup.
Here is what the Titanium rotary cutter looks like...
Its really easy to use. Once more you can swap the blade over to the other side for left handers. AND if you do alot of cutting for your quilts and other fabric endevours this is a relaxing tool to handle and hand cramping is not an issue with all that cutting as this handle is so relaxing to grip. The blade is also titanium so it will stay sharper for longer.... ******a little birdy tells me that Fiskars are thinking Titanium for blades! Can't wait for that to happen!***** This rotary cutter will be in Spotlight stores soon so keep an eye out......
ok on with alice....
Thanks so much for looking through the looking glass with me.
Other Fiskars tools used....
No 8. Heidi Grace limited edition scissors.
and the micro tip scissors for trimming threads.
12 in 1 sewing tool for stuffing, turning in the right way and stitch ripping (mistakes were made/corrected).
My hubby wants me to make tweedle dee and tweedle dum... I'm not sure about that.
I know my next obsession though is to make another quilted road mat for my son in the form of "Radiator Springs" (think Cars the movie). The Titanium Rotary cutter will be rather handy for all the cutting for that project.
Till next time.........
have a creative day!
