Playing dress ups..

Playing dress ups is always a lot of fun and that's what we've been doing this morning in my studio!! 

Belle: These shoes just won't fit you Milky, it's not like Cinderella!!
TED: I think she's right Milky..we'll just need to find you bigger shoes..
Milky: No, I'm certain I can squeeze into it!! 




Milky has just been listed in my Etsy shop.  For more details and photos here is the link: 

They are just having way too much fun and below is Ted and Milky sitting in the rain..
TED: Lucky you have big ears Milky, think it's starting to rain ☔️😂

We're having way too much fun to be sewing today!! Besides, it's Daniel's last day of the school holidays so we're going to make the most of it! :D

Some has already asked if they can make their own Milky and absolutely!! Milky was created from my Trumpet pattern.  I have the hard copy and e-pattern.  Both can be found from my website here:

Before I switch off, I have Tiny Ted's complete kit available in two colours of sassy fabric.

🐻 Your Blythe will LOVE you to bits...

I can't believe it's almost a week has past.  The weather though cold has been sunny most days and I've been fortunately enough to spend the last week of the school holidays with Daniel.  Mostly at home but we're both home bodies and do enjoy our indoor activities and having our own space at times.  

Before school starts which means I'll be back to work, I've been busy creating Tiny TED's pattern.  Your Blythe doll is going to LOVE you!! Tiny TED's pattern and E-pattern are now available from my website at www.jennylovesbenny.com.  I will put a kit together for Tiny TED shortly and will keep you updated.

Speaking of Blythe dolls, I started my new unruly blue hair girl!  I don't think I had imagine making a dark blue hair girl before but I stumbled upon these gorgeous long and lush blue eye lashes at a nik nak kinda shop.   Aren't they just wonderful?

The eye lids,  I started creating them for a pink hair girl, however, after completing the lids, the shades of the pink didn't seem to match the hair so I decided to use these blue eye lashes to see how they fit.   This was the same for the eye chips.   

I was a little worried about how they would all come together, even the make up, the blue brows and blue shading.  Most times, things are not planned but somehow in this instance, they seem to fall into place...




She's not quite finished and I'm waiting on a some pull ring to arrive.   Aren't they wonderful? I think these will complete her look.  These awesome pull rings are from Twiggy Twiggy! You can find her here in her Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/t2tsquare?ref=l2-shopheader-name I haven't got a name for this girl yet but I think she's "Dare to be different"! :D


Until those pull rings arrive,  I think I'll put her aside for now and work on my new elephant that is ready to be sewn and put together.  

It's 2am and I'm finally feeling the weight of my eye lids...time for a shut eye! Good night! 😴

getting ready to do it again..

Hi All,

I'm back!! It's been absolutely freezing here in Melbourne.  I was warned that pipes inside houses had burst due to the freezing water in the pipes.  I was afraid I would come back to a flooded house. Thankfully,  DH had the good sense to turn off all the mains before we left and we had used what was in the pipes for last minute toilet runs and washing our hands.  He would say that was sheer 'dumb' luck!!! LOL

Thank you for your orders while I was away!! All orders has now been proceeded and sent today.  Thank you all for your patience! ❤️

I always get so inspired after being away but this time, instead of relaxing and just lay like a broccoli,  my holiday was filled with rides, Zoos, aquariums, museums, swimming and lots of listening to "Transformers" talk...Bumblebee..blah blah blah..Optimus Prime..blah..Autobots..blah!  Who can keep up!???  I really didn't understand a lot of it but as long as my little one thinks I do, that's more important! tee heee

Now I just need a little nap before hitting the ground running again...nite nite all and when I wake, I shall have some new creations for you! :D

Miss Candice Candy Pop...

You've probably guessed I had a few sewing projects going on at the same time as how else would I manage to get another bunny done in zippy time!! :D



Please meet my new creation "MISS CANDICE CANDY POP"!! 
She’s sweet as macaroons. That is mighty sweet in my opinion!!
She can’t do no wrong as she’s super nice...

Candice Candy Pop is now reserved. 
If you like to make your own Candice, she was created from my Rapipi pattern.

Tiny Ted for Ava

This week,  I've been designing a tiny teddy for my Blythe dolls, especially making one to travel with my new girl Ava.  Although I've used Sassy fabric which make it easier to turn right side out the tiny pieces I do find it much more difficult making smaller bears than the larger ones!!  


I am rather pleased with how this little bear has turned out.  Tiny Ted I've named him!



Now he's ready to travel with Ava.  I hope they will be very happy together!  For those who wish to make your own Tiny Ted, I shall create his pattern for you! :DHugs

Ava sees butterflies...

The past week, I've been working on my no.7 girl.  This time, I've given her a butterfly theme...
She has green and sparkly glitter lids and luscious long eye lashes.   I created four eye chips for her but my favourite is the one with her seeing butterflies...I can get lost in them myself!! :D
  


 

She has lovely long blonde hair and it's a little difficult to see however I've given her silver freckles...



I've just put her together and have also finished her dress.  Next is a teddy bear to keep her company!
 

Ava's dress is also available for pre-order here: https://www.jennylovesbenny.com/dollshop
Please allow between 1 to 2 weeks to ship from time of order.


Ava will be available for adoption soon, as soon as her furry friend is ready!! :D

it's another WEB facelift!!

Yes, crazy me is at it again...

I've just given JennyLovesBenny website another facelift.  The green was making me sad...I've concluded no matter how much I age, PINK is my colour!  Always makes me happy and that's what I want JLB to portray...endless Happiness!! 💗


The website has all my patterns on there,  hard copy and PDF formats except for Jenny Bear but am working on that.  The problem with computers and software is each time I upgrade or get a new computer, I also have to upgrade or buy new software else they don't work!!  

There is now The Bear Shop and The Doll Shop!! :D

Freight within Australia is FREE and all is in AUD$.  It is now also mobile friendly so you can even order through your iPhone.

All physical items which are currently listed in my Etsy shop will remain there however, newbies will be listed in my website unless it is being Auctions.  

I no longer have a gallery page as there was too many babies to put up but you can still view them in my Flickr and for more recent ones in my Instagram. 

Please feel free to drop me a message if you have any trouble with the site and I will endeavour to fix it asap.  

Thank you for being part of JennyLovesBenny!!  I will try to build on JennyLovesBenny to bring you more smiles and cuddles!

Have a super fab weekend and for those in Vic, an awesome long weekend!! Yeah!! :D

Snow Princess Wannabe ~ Dreamy

Am so thrilled my no.#2 girl Pink has just found a new home in the US.  I have no doubt she will be really happy with her new Mummy!!  Thank you all for your likes and lovely comments.

In the past few weeks, I've been working on a new girl..here's some snaps of what I've done along the way.  I did start out with a theme for her...a Unicorn Theme because of the colour of her hair,  beautiful baby blue with a tinge of soft pink running through...but along the way,  this little girl started to develop into her own character and theme.





After the face up, someone commented she was like a Frost Princess...yes, I think so too, she is a Snow Princess Wannabe and I named her Dreamy because of her bright Starry eyes.




I was never much good at sewing clothes but I mustered up a pretty dress for Dreamy.  I was lucky to find such beautiful fabric and trims to create her something which I think suits her.  I made her a Mohair jacket to keep her warm being a Snow Princess and all..LOL

I also sewed up some lace stockings for her too.  Am pretty happy with how they turned out! :D
Lastly, I also made her a white teddy bear to go wherever Dreamy goes.

Dreamy has found a new home and will be living with her new Mummy who amazingly looks like her!!!!! 😮

Before I leave you today is June's wallpaper for 2017 ~ Winter is certainly coming and I thought it was fitting to feature Dreamy my Snow Princess Wannabe!

Baa Baa sheep YoYo pillow hats for Blythe! 😝

Does anyone remember these?  For me, seeing these brings back a childhood memory of me as a little girl, though it's a bit of a blur, I do recall seeing a fabric bag hanging on a door knob with yoyo pillows attached to it.  I think it was the 'in' thing at that time and I'm pretty certain it would have been my mum who made the bag for herself. I always thought they were very pretty at the time but it was only recently when I look through one of my quilting books to make a quilt for Belle that I came across these again!  I decided that I was going to take the time and make some for fun.    
Since I was having such a fun time making hats for my Blythe doll, I decided to make some hats with yoyo pillows on them!  I have to say, I got a bit carried away with them and just kept making one after another!  I'm pretty happy with how they've turned out though!



Today, I finally finished the hat collection.  I've named it the "BaaBaa Yoyo Pillow Hat"! LOL
It just so reminds of a baby lamb...baaaaaa baaaaa! hehe
The hats are made from wool instead of mohair and I will have 6 available and they will be in my Etsy shop tomorrow.

Here some snippets of some of the hats modelled by my Belle.  I had a ball making them, hope you like them too! :D
