OK so I made some of these a long time ago and I think they are very cute. You can read the original post here. What I am wondering is will these things sell? Or is the market too flooded for rag dolls? I will be making one of these for my youngest for Christmas. Just wondering what the odds are of them selling and if you think they would, what would you charge?
I need to find someway to make some $ for Christmas this year so we can go to Charlotte to see the grandparents etc. If you think these would sell, please leave me a comment. If you don't think they would sell please leave me a comment! =)

So my idea came from here but I didn't use the template. Actually I didn't follow these directions either. I just saw it and made up my own thing. I did use the template here for the skirt, although next time I make a circle skirt I will own a serger because ironing and hemming a circle skirt is next to impossible.
Here are the pics
Linking up here

We are about 10 days from Harry Potter 7.1!! I can't wait! I have been a fan since about 2001. I have read all of the books about 10 times each and have all of the movies. I even dressed up as Professor Trewlaney for the book release party for book 7!
Not exact but close, while walking in someone yelled out "They can't make you leave Trewlaney!"
I thought that was awesome!
Anyway, in celebration of movie 7 part one coming out I made a tiny display on one of my built in shelves.
I have more stuff, but it is all in storage in NC. =( I will make a much larger display when part 2 comes out next summer.
I am slowly getting the Thanksgiving stuff up, most of it is still in storage in NC (thats another story). So I printed out a very cool turkey from the Graphics Fairy. If you haven't been to this blog, stop what you are doing and go immediately!!
Isn't her site soooo cool?!? So I printed out the turkey, but I only have a black and white printer so I colored it with my awesome Prismacolor colored pencils. These things are amazing, they blend kinda like crayons, but they are very expensive. These are from when I was in art school back in 2002.
So anyway here is the turkey
I love it!!

I took on my first challenge! This Misfit Crafter had a contest to see who can come up with a Hello Kitty treat bag using the bag that she provided. Here are my results
If I used this design I would do the same on both sides. The ribbon at the top already had the little eyelet thingys. I cut the strip out of the bag because there was a logo there. A strip of plastic could go behind it, or maybe some Hello Kitty paper, or just leave it open and see the tissue paper in the bag.
If I had this design I would do the same thing on both sides as well, but I would leave the name off of one of the sides. Any kind of sparkly ribbon can be used on the top of the bag. I thought a little bling was in order!
This is the side which has a logo on it, I covered it with a sharpie, but strips of paper would work too. I just saw it close up and realized how bad it looks! Maybe strips of paper would be better, they are darker and you can make them straight. I would do this on both sides and with both designs.
If one of my designs is chosen I will win some cool prizes. If I win it will be the first blog candy I have ever won! Wish me luck!

This year was a cool year for costumes, I didn't make my girls costumes but I did make a really cool hat for my step-daughter. She went as a vampire and I thought she looked pretty cool!
This is C with her "victim" I actually made the costume that the victim is wearing too, we were going for the same "era" as the vamp
The red eyes are not a camera flash, she wore red contacts
My three went in store bought costumes this year, maybe next year I will be on the ball!
