What started out as something to do for fun has grown into so much more. I absolutely love sewing for and customizing ball-jointed dolls. I have far too many ideas!
It all started when my grandma put a needle & thread in my hands to sew clothing for my teddy bears out of old drapes.
I must have been 5, and the drapes were avocado green from the ’60s.
Ever since then, I have been sewing up a storm! From doll clothes to quilts, tailored clothing and costumes to furniture covers and re-upholstery, I have been having a blast!
The one thing that has stuck with me, and maybe its because it all started here, has been doll clothes.
When I first got into the BJD hobby, I noticed a fairly large lack of casual, contemporary clothing for our dolls of all sizes. There were gorgeous, elaborate outfits around every corner, but the basics were few and far between.
I have been enjoying sewing for BJD’s since 2005 when I got my first boy, Kyoshi, a Souldoll Paris.
Resin Melody started in 2010, and I’ve been having a blast ever since. 😀
