Snowy February

At least in Finland. We had over 30 cm of snow coming in all of a sudden. A small challenge for cars and people. I on the other hand had much fun jumping over snowbanks. Although little precarious ice lurking under…

TSUKIFLY

What is going on with Tsukifly? A lot. Active period. Several Etsy listings have got one or more updated pictures. I hope those will give you even better idea of the products and their details.

As I have been able to dedicate more time for sewing and updates I am pleased to see the improvement myself. I am grateful and it makes me happy to be able to do these things. Such a pleasure. Anyway. I must say I am really looking forward to snow / increasing natural light as the spring is slowly coming.

Patterns – Available – As instant download PDF file – by Tsukifly. And it is still hard for me to understand I have finally made it. Thank you for your patience! The first pattern available is for a cute 1-2 hour DIY project knee-length Pullip/Blythe/Pureneemo skirt.

Overly cute white fleece winter coat for Tiny / Yo-SD sized dolls. Just added on Etsy today. I have been wanting to try out some funky shapes for ages.

I came across a perfect piece of white fleece over the winter holidays and worked with my hands (On the road -travelling – you don’t have access to a sewing machine). Details SAMSUNG CSCare made with minty ribbons going around with white bead details. The same minty ribbon is also used in several bow ties and in front the coat has three rows of ribbons. You are required to tie them as bow ties to close the coat on the front side.

Best fit would be for Soom Tiny and similar sized dolls. For Mina [Aileendoll Camellia] the coat is a bit too big. Looking cute nevertheless ^^!

I have just listed it on Etsy at the same time with this blog post. Find the warm white fleece coat here.

Overview of the current (coming in near future) in progress – list: Lillycat turquoise lace dress set, Tiny lace dress and 8-9 inch SD/Lillycat/DD colors of snow – knitted hat & scarf set. In addition I am also working on three dress sets for SD/DD sizes with several pieces, one of those is Vintage Line.

So, as you see, many things going on and coming in. I am having a boost in sewing.

I also want to thank all those who have purchased my products and/or commissioned me. It is amazing support I have received and it is all worth it because of you!

PS. If you are considering to adopt a custom Pullip girl, Tsukifly custom Pullips Akiko and Papillon are available on Etsy. If purchased during this weekend (3-4 Feb) you have chance to receive the package just in time for Valentine’s Day (together with a suprise Valentine’s present)!

Season’s greetings!

This month has had some trials for me and for this reason I have been quiet with both blog and updating of new items for Etsy. Last month we saw quite many updates in the beginning of month so I hope they compensate a bit for the lack of them for the time being.

Now I wish a very Merry Xmas and a wonderful New Year 2017!

Plans to update new Etsy items properly probably need to wait until January as I wish to update some pictures at the same time.

My warmest thank you for all the customers who have made orders through Etsy shop in 2016.

Tsukifly has a new model, a tanned Blythe Girl named Mella. She is modelling one of the new fluffy animal hats completed for the next Etsy update. A glimpse of a new dress as well. These hats and dresses will also fit for Pullip size.

Previously I was greatly happy about the few pairs of Tsukifly socks I finished. As I still had a small piece of the fabric I have finished a special pair Blythe size socks. Best fit for Pureneemo body.

They differ from the bigger pairs in used lace and tiny black ribbons. So more details in them. Cute if I may say so!

I was asked to try out some animal headdresses and hats in Pullip and other sizes and there they are. Two white fluffy hats in Pullip/Blythe sizes – around 10 inches. Cat and Bunny designs. Three bunny headdresses with ribbon details. Smaller as well. Tiny/MSD sizes. More pictures of those in January.

A comprehensive Etsy update

This time it appears I made my monthly update a bit too early. The past two weekends have been quite productive for me. Tsukifly Etsy shop will grow in the amount of unique clothing pieces on offer. Rightly so for the coming Christmas market if you think commercially? And I know there will be more to come and quite active updating this weekend and the next. For that reason I will post this extra post for this month to show off some of the new pieces.

Probably half of these pieces have been completed earlier but are around now with some proper sets of sale photos.

Let’s start with some accessories.

Tsukifly doll sized notebook. I made this already quite long ago. Really loved this scrapbook paper I came across and just had to try out. I think it turned out cute with lace

Hisa and the notebook – size reference

flower details and framed detail in front. Otherwise it is usable notebook with lined pages so you may write your doll’s story or make notes inside.Size is suitable for SDs or bigger dolls, otherwise may be a bit too big(?)

Hisa, my Volks Lorina, is the model for the majority of new sale photos. For one she loves books and reading. Especially old romantic novels like Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. She is also perfect for the new animal headdresses for she likes this kind of cute but elegant stuff. She has been in closet for too long, now is her time to shine again.

Fluffy Animal Headdresses

Inspired by the winter knocking to my door, I created something fluffy and warm to complement your doll’s winter clothing. Made out of a fluffy white fabric,these headdresses are cute and soft to touch. There are two styles available, one with cat ears and one with bear ears. They have lovely beige colored ribbon details. Made to fit for 9-10 inch heads such as Volks SD/SD13/SD16, Luts and Pullip heads. Now found from Etsy.

Off-white lace dress is one of my personal favorites

First up is the Tsukifly Off-white lace dress for Lillycat cerisedolls. Modelled by Freya, my Lillycat Ellana, the dress is made of several layers of lovely off-white lace with white and rose ribbon/lace details. Some of you may remember those first pictures already quite a
while ago. Now, I can say finally, proper pictures for Etsy. More lace only clothing. I seem to like this material~

Then, as those few Pullip dresses previously offered in Etsy have gone I thought to offer few short, above knee-high dresses in Pullip size. These needed some work as I had no patterns in Pullip size and thus had to draw something from scratch. In total three different designs. First of the three with My melody fabric has been completed already before and will fit also for Obitsu body

Alice Pullip dress

. The other two dresses are made with Pullip type 4 body, Tsukifly’s newest custom, Papillon de nuit as their model. Second design is the simplest of the three and requires some work with its ribbon fastening going all the way down. Third of the three is made from the same fabric as Alice within Alice dress set for Unoa/MNF. I hope they answer the demand for Pullip sized clothing.

Kimono project – two completed kimonos

There are two designs. One is in beige background and the other red/orange. Freya looks good in both of them. Makes my choice harder as I originally thought it would be nice to keep one of the two for her as she has too little clothes of her own.

In general the designs are similar, however, small differences can be found. Beige has separate collar fabric with small visible stitches. The red/orange has no collar fabric and hidden stitches. Lining in beige is white, other has lining in light rose color. Obi for beige is partly out of the same fabric as the kimono itself. For the red/orange I wanted to make one which was more of a stand out. Thus white, red and beige colors without pattern with eye & hook closures. Both sets have a head bow tie made out of the other set’s main kimono fabric. So it is not a mix-up that they are not matching with the kimono sets they come with. That little fun detail.

I also completed two pairs of patterned socks which I have been meaning to complete for a while already. I quite like how they look with the kimono on Freya. I am also pleased with them as they are a bit thicker than a regular stocking fabric, thus they provide a bit of protection for the leg and can also fill in a bit over-sized shoes. My girls certainly seem to have too many of such shoes or a too little feet(?) The inside of the stockings is white so no danger of staining either. The other pair is in MSD / Slim mini size, now tried out by Lunetta. Find them from Etsy.
