Miss Polly's new shop

Miss Polly has a new shop for all her non-dolly stuff! She loves turning old stuff into new pretty things and so she has created a folksy shop especially for this. This site is still in its beta stage but looks good and will soon be international so she is busy making some lovely things to go in it. Its empty at the mo while she sorts out items and packaging etc but the new year will bring some lovely accessories to pretty up your life :D

Where am I??

If anyone wondered if I had fell off the planet I thought I would give you a little update! I decided to concentrate on getting all my Xmas jobs done and try to keep off the computer a bit, so what happened?? I came down with, cold...then tummy bug...then migraine!! I think my body was telling me to get back online!! Anyhow, I am busy dreaming up some new ideas for our dollies for 2009 and will be off to France to see some friends for New Year, then back to work on the 5th January.

I would like to thank all my lovely friends and marvellous customers for all your support during 2008. Thanks for making my creative dreams come true :D

Marvellous Madge hats

Granny Madge has been busy making stock because she is having an operation on her wrist on friday. Today I will be listing 12 hats on etsy, more to follow! She will be having a well earned rest for a while then (though I think she isn't that happy about it!!)

Xmas Belle Collection

I will be listing some items from my Xmas Belle Collection on Friday. I have created a felted mohair cloche hat with vintage buttons all around the brim, a crocheted pure silk dress with lace bottom, vintage buttons around the peplum and tiny glass beads around the neckline, cream taffetta pants to wear underneath and the most gorgeous fine mohair knit cardigan with 'leg of mutton' sleeves, babydoll style body and tiny glass beads to highlight the gathering.

I will be making more of these as time permits, cardigans being the most time consuming (but very pleasurable to do!)

The special OOAK themed Xmas sets are coming along nicely. There will be 6 of these and I am on the 4th! Hopefully I will have some preview pics for you next week. I am having so much fun with these :D

Mini Dresses and hats

Nearly all finished with this weeks batch of mini dresses and hats! There will be six this friday and six next friday. Prices are $20 for the dresses and $10 for the hats. I am going to list as sets because I have limited mohair for the hats and don't want anyone disappointed if they miss stuff they want matching. I have more mohair and cashmere for the dresses though so if anyone would like just the dress please ask. I can also make matching cardigans :D

I will be listing around 5pm UK time.

Nearly there with the room. I didn't realise how much stuff I had!!! The girls are all settled in and I am nearly ready to start production again.

Sorry if anyone was waiting for me to list the mini madge hats but I unexpectedly had to finish painting my studio/craft room as the carpet fitters are coming today!! I am so excited about having my own room but my house is a mess with yarn, fabric, buttons , ribbon, lace etc etc!! I will hopefully be back to normal by Sunday and able to start listing them. Having my studio is a dream come true and I am like a kid with a new toy!

More pics of Halloween set

Picture showing some detail of the dress in the Black Widow set. The tarantula might find its way in the set too!! Underneath the torn strips of black fabric on the skirt part there is black lace. There is a black lace bow at the back of the dress. As with Dem Bones dress it is very long so it can be trailed on the floor for effect. More details of Dem Bones coming later.
