More Tiny Valentine Dresses

I know, I know! I doubt very many people care to see my dollies -- so this post is all for MEEE!

I love my tiny Blythes, and have been obsessing over making a tiny Valentine dress for each one. I have to start out with my favorite:
Somehow her dress just feels so "I Love Lucy" to me! And they said redheads should never wear pink.... Shows how much they know! :o)



And what is that little thing on her desk?

A teeny-tiny Valentine!
It measures 1/4" x 3/8".



I adore it! (Big surprise! What, ME? Love TINY things??)


Here are some of the other dresses I've made so far:
That last one is my least favorite. It definitely doesn't suit that particular girl. But I have a red and black lace number I'm working on for her -- and I think it will be perfect!

Each dress uses only the ittiest bittiest little scrap of fabric.
See?? I'm actually USING those tiny little scraps I haven't been able to part with!


Here's my other favorite dress. Pink lace with cowboy boots!
Hmmm.... Is someone jealous about that Valentine?

:oD Now I probably sound nuts! :oD
I can't even describe how much I adore these little dolls! They are just TOO much fun!
Thanks for being a good sport and letting me share!

love, love, LOVE!!!!

are these the tiny Blythes from the Petshop toys?

do you have a "how-to" for the dresses?

...I may NEED a little Blythe-ness in my studio :)

Kathy said...

LoL, They are so cute, How did you do the tiny Valentine?

Care said...

Christhequilter -- yes, they are the girls from Littlest Pet Shop. Inexpensive, CUTE. The dresses aren't too tricky; they just require tiny stitches and a lot of patience and concentration!

Kathy -- I just (seriously) reduced a Valentine image, printed it on regular printer paper, and cut it out. I made up the little envelope by cutting and folding. Too fun! I want to make a million of them! :o)

Absolutely adorable. I never get tired of seeing your Blythe's. I want to make tiny valentines now. So fun. I love their little desk!

Amy said...

Thanks for making me smile every few days!

Thank you so much for sharing. I like the first dress (the polka dot one) the best too. I was just thinking about how to make American Girl size valentines this week (after I saw tiny valentines for sale in a Hearthsong catalog). Your method is so obvious and yet so brilliant.
