Valentine’s Day is coming

Valentine’s Day

It is February and time for hearts, chocolates, roses and cards. We in Finland don’t have a very strong Valentine’s Day tradition (to my knowledge) although shops are certainly taking all the commercial benefit they can get out of this special day.

SAMSUNG CSCTsukifly’s contribution was to add new lace tops made with similar design as the Tsukifly sapphire blue lace tops (one of the three is still available). These are pink in color, with pink lace and ribbon/bow tie details. Completed in four sizes: SD/SD13, Lillycat, DD M-Bust and Slim mini/MSD/Unoa. Hurry if you wish to secure a specific size as there is only one of each. Check Etsy.

Etsy sections rearranged

The sectioning of the Etsy shop seemed to be a bit off. Some of the products didn’t fit in any of the sections and as a result you could only see certain products through ‘All’. So I proceeded to take a mixed approach of having some sections with descriptive headings, some under the previous size headings. Now as all the products belong in one of the subsections they are more easily found. I hope you find it more user-friendly now~

New creations & Etsy additions

I might have said I should sew more for my own girls instead of Etsy. I did do something. While I am still unsure of Lunetta’s own style she got a pair of cute bloomers as I adjusted a pattern in MSD size. Now I should do the same for Lillycat / SD since my other girls (and perhaps Etsy too) would need few pairs of those. There are great fabric pieces in my closet for just that purpose. I wonder are bloomers to be sectioned under Mix & Match? Lunetta got a white lace top as well. Nothing too frilly as too much lace doesn’t seem to be “her thing”. She seems to have adopted a brass four leaf clover necklace to go with it.

Rein is getting a top made out of a lovely golden flower brocade (the same fabric that was SAMSUNG CSCused for Lillycat corset top) with a lace collar. It is short design with less ribbon / lace / bow tie things so I need to get used to the idea of not adding ‘everything’. Freya got a short tulle skirt as I aim for something in steampunk style. So I should hope my girls have been happy over the weekend to receive some of the frantic sewing creativity I had.

Currently in progress / to be expected:

A longer SD/SD13 dress with light blue & minty details, some bloomers and Mix & Match light blue sweet lolita skirts in MSD and Lillycat sizes to start with. Later there will be a dress in Pullip / Blythe size and a tiny sized kimono set, but these two will take more time as they are at the back of the list. We shall see. Also some pattern stockings coming up.

Weekends are generally for relaxing. Why not to have a break among all the sewing and enjoy a moment with a cup of quality tea and a piece or two of a lovely Leonidas mocha pearl white chocolate?

Tsukifly 2017 lauch

First update for the year 2017!

It is white and snowy outside and few snapshots of the recent updates for Tsukifly Etsy shop were just taken. Few winter accessories. Fluffy and cute headdresses and hats.

SAMSUNG CSC

I did post preview pictures of the products already in my previous post but since I did not have my lovely girls on my christmas travels these appear in Etsy only just now with their model pictures.

Here is Lunetta modelling one of the smaller headdresses. There are two available. Size is suitable for both MSD and Tiny. There is also one in Cream color for SD size.

Another addition for now was those two animal hats for bigger size – Pullip and Blythe. 10 inch heads in general. SAMSUNG CSCHere is Tsukifly Pullip custom Papillon modelling the cat hat.

I have also discounted certain products for New Years sale section to make room for new designs and plans. I hope they are to you liking!

Two dress sets are coming shortly as I have time to finish few last pieces for both of them. One in Pullip/Blythe size and one in Dust of Dolls size. Both of these sets will include a dress and a tulle skirt.

I shall update more plans and picture sooner or later. In the meantime please check Etsy and Flickr.

 

Monthly Update: April

I am happy to inform you that a lot has been done since my last update.

Tsukifly Cerisedolls off-white lace dress

Let me start by sharing a picture of a lace dress I completed for Freya. She was in need of something old-style and white but this time I wanted to make a one-piece dress. I must say I am happy with the outcome, kind of vintage style mix out of off-white lace with white details and lace choker. She would still need a new pair of shoes to complement the outfit.

*searching*

Bunny hat pattern needed some update and now a specific tiny/yo-sd pattern exists. For 6-7 inch heads. Otherwise the design is similar to those hats that have been completed earlier.

Bunny Hats – Tiny/Yo-SD – Etsy

Three new bunny hats were completed and will be available through Etsy. I was also commissioned one of these bunny hats of which you may find pictures below. The hat is modelled by Mina (Aileendoll Camellia).

Some issues exist with the new pattern or rather with the order in which the pieces are attached so some fine adjustments are to be done. Next pattern is big SD size (9-10inch) while Pullip (10 inches) and MSD (7-8 inch) need to wait a while. Still considering also whether a separate 8-9 inch would be needed.

Some of you may remember news of a certain Tsukifly Pullip custom set, which was originally completed to be on display at the last Dolliverse held in the Netherlands. Since that display I have made few fine adjustments to make the custom set more completed. Now she will finally be available through Etsy. Her name is Sarinna and she will come with a custom face-up, blind decorated eye chips, Goldenrod Leekeworld wig and a complete hand-sewn Tsukifly dress set. Her eyelids are decorated with lovely real light violet lace details ~! Personally I am happy with how she turned out and I do hope she will find a loving home. Perhaps I will be encouraged to consider another Pullip custom project in the future as well. It was quite a lot of fun to complete this set.

Now that I am finished with my most prominent news I will be off to update Sarinna and bunny hats to Tsukifly Etsy shop ~! I hope to see you around.
