Today a bunch of us bloggers are talking about Celina from petit a petit and family and her personal style. Let me first start off by saying what a sweet and talented woman she is. I have gotten to know her over the past year and she is just a wealth of knowledge and always willing to share it. That is priceless to someone like me who is still learning so much about sewing. No matter how silly my question is, she is always willing to help out. Thank you so much Celina, your such a beautiful person! Now back to her style. Its modern, handmade, a tad vintage with a bit of whimsy. I follow Celina on Pinterest and before I even look to see who the pin is from, I know it was one of hers. Finding one’s personal style is something bloggers and sew-ers are always talking about. If they haven’t found it yet, they searching for it. So it is a huge accomplishment once one has found their personal style and others can recognize it. Celina has found her personal style for sure! Today we are all making something that was either inspired by her style or something she has made. I decided to make something from one of her tutorials after seeing her Mermaid Tail Costume. It just happened to be that my girls were begging me to make them mermaid dolls for some time now, so it just happened to be the perfect thing to make.
To make the dolls I decided to use pieces of a pattern that I used previously when making these dolls. Of course you can see that I had to make adjustments to the head and tail part. I let my girls choose the fabrics and the hair color, after all these will be their dolls. I can’t help but love that my littlest chose blue for the hair. Then again it was not a big surprise. If I had pink felt I am pretty sure there would have been one with pink hair too! Our world revolves around the kids and their favorite colors right now. I made the little seashell tops and flower headbands with some felt flowers that came in one of my girls American Doll Craft kits. Can I just mention how much I love the American Doll Craft Kits?! I simply added some eyes with thread since that is all the girls wanted their dolls to have on their faces. I happen to love them that way too.As you can see, my girls love their little mermaids!Inspired by Celina but definitely our style! Head on over to see what everyone else has made! What a fun way to celebrate one talented and sweet friend!
