Making little things, small but significant!

I love August! You know why? I know we are on the countdown to Fall, which is my favorite time of the year!
 With Fall in mind I am working on  little bedding sets...not quite summer...and not quite fall....but peach and subtle oranges and buttery yellows...Love those warm colors.

I am excited this summer to be working on bedding patterns. Dollhouse miniature bedding sets....I have sewn a few hundred! It just seemed time to come out with some patterns.
I've never done it before so it is all new.
There is lots of picture taking...typing....explaining....more pictures.
I decided pictures show more than trying to explain things.
So I believe the patterns will have more pictures in them.
It is exciting to do something new, something I haven't done before.
Hopefully I will be done soon.
I had to buy some cute pins to use in my pictures....after all a picture with just straight pins can be boring! Aren't these adorable. I got them off of Etsy. I typed in Cute Straight pins....I couldn't believe all the choices.

The pattern will have basic directions for making a sheet set, pillowcases, comforters, blankets, pillow shams and a few other things.
All dollhouse size...
I get so many requests for a pattern, I just decided to jump in all the way...
It is like jumping in the deep end of the pool though.
 Reading a lot of articles on pattern making, writing patterns, how to write an Ebook, or make a PDF pattern. Who knew there was so much information? I had to back off for a bit, it was overwhelming.

After the pattern making is complete...I am going to start on actual bedding patterns for big people beds.
Jumping in to the very deepest part of the pool now!
It just seems one thing leads to another....

And make it all from linen fabrics, beautiful luxury fabrics....

Have you tried making something tiny?
Oh it is wonderful, something so little
and sweet. I just love it!
