Adorable New Alice's Adventures In Wonderland Galleries



I have been in a "Alice's Adventures In Wonderland" design creation mode for a few weeks now and have been having a delightful time.  I just love all the illustrations from the "Sir John Tenniel and Arthur Rackham Illustrations From Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll Free E-Books"


You also know how much I love designing fabrics, love books, and love history so when you saw my posts regarding the adorable illustrations from "Sir John Tenniel and Arthur Rackham Illustrations From Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll Free E-Books" you had to be thinking that I would want to do something with the adorable illustrations.

So, of course, I did.  decided to create toile and other whimsical designs out of some of the illustrations from the free e-books that are in the public domain and decided to utilize some of those designs for a new "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Designs" category and "Alice's Adventures In Wonderland - Toile Designs" for my "We Love Books" gallery.

My New Alice's Adventures In Wonderland Galleries



You all know how much I love anything and everything revolving around crafts.  In fact, my bucket list is filled with different crafts I want to try.  It will take more than a lifetime so I know I won't get to trying everything, but it won't stop me from trying...lol

My New Victorian Books Toile Designs


There is no doubt that I love dolls, the Victorian Era, history, and books.


So, it should come as no surprise that I would spend hours on end removing backgrounds from some of the Harper's Young People Illustrations Book from 1889 to see if I could create stickers and scrap-booking paper to use for some of my mixed media projects.  I have a few book related mixed media projects in mind and thought the graphics would be perfect for this use.


As you might recall from a previous Linda's Blog post some of the mixed media projects I created this past summer were mixed media items that required quite a bit of old book papers for collage purposes.  So much so I ran out of the book pages.

An Adorable New Custom Products Gallery - We Love Books



I fell in love with books and reading from a very early age.  My grandmother read, my Dad read, and my mother read so, I guess, I had good role models.

I love libraries, too and could spend hours on end just browsing through all the stacks.  I usually found myself browsing through history books and craft books.  I just couldn't get enough of historical information - especially on the Victorian Era.  It always fascinated me and finding something in one book usually lead to another book, and so on.  Like solving a big jigsaw puzzle.

I was always happy when I found a good craft book as there really weren't a lot of them at the time.  Nothing like what you can find nowadays.

All of this probably explains my love of Victorian dolls, love of crafts, love of research, love of jigsaw puzzle, and love of reading.

So, it should come as no surprise to all of you that I decided to create a "We Love Books" custom products gallery.

Right now I've designed 12 book related graphics for the twelve different categories of my new "We Love Books" custom products gallery.

There is also a category for all the "We Love Books Crafting Supplies" I created, like: vinyl stickers, scrapbook paper, rubber stamps, stickers, wall decals, etc.

My new "We Love Books" gallery is filled with all sorts of wonderful custom decorating and everyday products with whimsical book designs.  We have all sorts of home decor,  electronic accessories, pillowcases,duvet covers and pillowcases, dishes, greeting cards, wrapping paper, ribbon, scrapbook paper, gift tags, coffee mugs, stickers, kitchen entertaining products, pillows, everything you need for book gift decorating, paper products for entertaining, linens, led candles, jigsaw puzzles to entertain the kids, and so much more.

For decorating purposes we have tablecloths, magnetic photo frames, wall art, custom fabric, bathroom towels, bathroom mats, shower curtains, and so much more.  We have clothing, accessories like scarves and ties, various types of totes and bags, all sorts of electronic accessories like iPhone covers, mouse-pads, and more, school and office supplies, led candles, and so much more in all twelve of my new designs.


That's great all by itself but, being a crafting person, I also created a "We Love Books Crafting Supplies" category for my new book related custom products like: vinyl stickers, scrapbook paper, rubber stamps, stickers, wall decals, etc.

And, of course I also created a We Love Books Crafting Supplies collection so you can easily peruse all my crating supplies.  


For most of the book related designs I added a version of each for several products where position orientation may or may not be needed like: fabric, tablecloths, blankets, throws, pillowcases, duvet covers, bathroom towels, kitchen towels, platters, serving trays and so much more.

There are different designs within each category and each coordinate perfectly with each other so you can still have complementing product designs no matter which one of the designs or categories you buy.

I hope you like my new "We Love Books" custom products gallery.

Great News - We've Grouped All Our Cut and Sew Dolls Together


When I was designing my cut and sew dolls I couldn't help but think about my own experiences as a child learning how to sew and thought that cut and sew dolls would not only be a good way to teach a young child how to hand sew but also how to teach them how to machine sew as they could be put together either way. Plus, they quickly see the results of their efforts.

So, when I was designing my cut and sew dolls I wanted to create something that would be a great sewing tool for kids as well as something that would give them a more immediate feeling of achievement. Something they could do without have to go to school and pass a final exam! Something that they could be proud of that they had created. Something to inspire them to want to learn more.

So, back in 2014 I designed my first cut and sew dolls and/or ornaments.  I started small, but this quickly grew to a lot.  I now have 265 cut and sew doll and/or ornaments designs. Plenty of inspiration for learning how to sew.

However, when looking at my cut and sew dolls and/or ornaments I started to think that grouping them into fat quarter sizes (21" by 18") of fabric would really be great for everyone who wanted dolls and/or ornaments by holiday, occasion, season, style, or just plain everyday use.

So, I designed 26 different cut and sew doll and/or ornament groups.  If you want Christmas cut and sew dolls I have 4 groups to choose from.  If you want winter seasonal snowmen I have 2 groups.  If you want baby or baby shower cut and sew dolls or favors I have 3 groups to choose from, and so on and so on.

Each of the groups contains anywhere from 11 to 18 cut and sew dolls and/or ornaments.  So now if you want to decorate for Halloween you have 2 groups to choose from.  Each group fits on a 21" by 18" fat quarter.  So, all you have to do is buy one fat quarter and you'll be able to create simple and easy Halloween cut and sew doll and/or ornament decorations.

Not only are cut and sew dolls and/or ornaments fast and easy, but they are a great way to teach kids how to sew. 

I hope you like my new cut and sew doll, favor, and ornament fabric groups,which are shown below:
