I'll post some more photos and links tomorrow!
An autumn dotee doll. . .
I had never heard of these dolls, but my partner collects them. They have entire swaps for these on Craftster and Swap-Bot. I decided to try to make one for her.
I painted the fabric myself -- some reclaimed cotton fabric, soaked in water, and I floated some acrylic paints on the wet fabric. Once the paint dried, I ironed the fabric to set the paint. I like how it turned out.
She also collects tea pots, so I wanted to make her a trivet and coasters to go with the cute acorn-themed tea pot I picked up for her at Cracker Barrel. I used this tutorial on Etsy to make the trivet.
I used mostly reclaimed fabrics for this. Again, the colors/lighting in this photo are awful -- they're really much richer and deeper. . . not so "citrus-y."
The tutorial recommends using felt (I'm assuming a thick, industrial type felt?) for the inner lining. I used one layer of craft fleece, plus a layer of Insul-Bright. I wish I had used an additional layer of thin batting, or at least doubled up on the fleece.
