Marching towards summer

Last month was a productive month for me. WAIT? Which month? I have noted that I missed completely last month’s update even though I had written it ready… Better late than never, mmm? 😀

Often times I have too many ideas and too little time to get things done. Perhaps the increased light outside also has something to do with the productivity? Today is cloudy / rain but I don’t think that will keep me inside.

I want to start the day by doing this massive update so that it will be done. And then it will also serve as a recap for myself.

First I will remind you of the Lillycat Pastel deer dress setil_fullxfull.1479237711_mursSAMSUNG CSCThose pastel colors together with the deep red deer headpiece are lovely. The deer pendant in front crowns the whole dress. For me anyway. Being a deer fan myself. Not to mention I love adding details ~

March also saw an addition to Tsukifly pattern section. A PDF pattern for a simple above knee-length Unoa/Slim mini/MNF skirt. This pattern took hours longer than the Pullip/Blythe skirt because it has more shapes to make it fit around the waist. I am pleased on the outcome though. Check the pattern from here.

Then I completed a white fleece winter coat for Tiny/Yo-SD. It has been in my project box since winter holidays… Took three months to get it finished. Lack of time?  It is made out of white soft fleece, has white pearl and bowtie details around the hem and minty ribbon to close it in front. I chose to leave the inside lining because this would have been too much for the whole. Its a little big for Mina (our model in this pic). So better fit for e.g. Soom Tinies.

Another Yo-SD/Tiny sized piece for Etsy was Color Bits tulle dream dress. Part of Vintage line as the top part of the dress is made out of hand crafted vintage lace / cotton fabric. Its very sturdy and has little details out of different laces, pearls and ribbons. Skirt part is made out of fluffy white tulle with strands of little color bits. Ribbons to attach the dress from the backside.

The last thing for March (I think) was to complete Winter Colors knitted scarf & hat set. It is modelled by Rein, my Dollfie Dream Saber, whose head is 8-9 inch. Thus the set will fit SAMSUNG CSCdolls with that head size. E.g. Lillycat Ellana and bigger girls like Soom girls.

Now I think we are in for the April updates. Before that I want to say: Thank you for all of you who have commissioned me! I have been so happy to take on those little challenges❤

I cannot say my productivity has in anyway diminished during April. I had a pleasure to travel a bit after two years of break in between (unintentional) at the end of March and at the beginning of April. From those travels I have derived new ideas as well.

Previously I have been asked to try out making a travel pouch. So I made one. With a candy (sweet & delicious) design 🍬

Etsy currently has two tiny / yo-SD / pureneemo pouches ready made. Other sizes can be made to order. One such was one in MNF / Unoa size and another in Pullip size.  Each pouch is made of thicker outer fabric and softer inside fabric. Each end has colorful ribbons to tie the pouch and in between there are velcro pieces to close the pouch. A separate head protector is recommended to be used when your doll is travelling inside the pouch 🙂 I made one extra for Riri (Pureneemo Aika) to use as she had none of her own previously.

I also completed three animal headbands for Tiny / Yo-SD / Unoa heads. Here the model is Yuiko, the newest addition to my doll family. I will write a longer description of her character a bit later. There are two more bunny headdresses with fleece bottoms waiting to be finished. I will add those into the listing as I get them done 🙂

A new summer straw hat was completed. Fits for Pureneemo and Soom minigems. These are rather rare as I hardly ever find suitable straw hat bases to work with. Everytime I do, its fun. Riri also shows a little teaser for a pureneemo dress coming next month (its one of three in that size). They also fit for Blythe and Pullip.

The same dress from two angles? In a way yes. You see Yuiko and Lunette (This Souldoll cutie is currently also looking for a new home) modelling the newest addition to Etsy, the Baby Pink dress set. It is a pink Paris themed dress with a cute head bowtie. Lower layer made of tulle, decorated with bows and ribbons this dress is something your cute pink loving unoa / slim mini / MNF girl would love to have.

There is also a previously completed Walolita style outfit for Pureneemos and Pullips. You may remember seeing some teaser of the upper part of this dress set in Instagram.

il_570xN.1496598171_d0du.jpgNow the dress set is also on Etsy. The dress set comes with a head bowtie, upper shirt and separate high waist skirt and decorated Japanese ribbon as obi.

I really like this design. I had a pleasure to complete few commission of this design as well. Perhaps I should consider making one for Yuiko or perhaps Freya?

I will save a bit of stuff for the next month. I also completed another Unoa / MNF Dress of which there is a teaser in Instagram. However, it is taking me a bit longer to post it up. And while it takes a bit I conclude this post is quire full of pics already. The next one might end up looking rather empty after such a “spam”. I hope not though ^^;

More updates next month

Massive updating all around

It is just like the headline says. Over the last week I have taken time to update Tsukifly Etsy. Mainly tried to take some photos and read through texts and shop policies. So everything is up to date. I remember saying it was one of my objectives to finish some of the in progress – dresses as well. See below for some of those projects:)

A package from my dear friend!! <3 ^^

A package from my dear friend!! ❤ ^^

I recently got a package containing a lot of wonderful stuffs for making customs, clothing and of course tea things to keep me going while I work ~ Riri (pureneemo girl) was there to invade box opening pictures. You can also maybe better see the Kimono style outfit set I made for her a while back. Poor girl had no clothes when she came! ^^;

Okay. So this Pureneemo girl didn’t previously have any name either. No clothes and no name… Sounds serious. But it is all fixed now! She appears to have adopted the name Riri. So I suppose I can say she is now officially part of the family ^^ I really should get around taking some family photos at some point ~

There wasn’t enough light anywhere to help me by the time I finished everything yesterday. But I shall update once again as the situation around here changes (light wise).

Those are the two new Pullip/Blythe/Pureneemo outfits available at Etsy. The Vintage Nightie can also fit for Soom Faery / Minigems. Junia here with it. Although on her its length is a bit over knees and not full-length as with Pureneemo/Blythe/Pullip bodies 🙂

Then the outfit set I first made for Akiko’s fullset but later ended up changing Akiko’s style into more Asian direction. Therefore I am now offering the original fullset outfit for sale separately. With this I have experimented few styles and different fabrics and materials. I must say I am

quite pleased what comes to the outcome. Read more comprehensive description and find more pics from the Candy Girl Etsy listing.

One of the long term in progress dresses was a vintage MSD dress set. The upper part was originally part of another set but as the other parts were sold, this inspired me to use the recycled lovely embroidered piece of fabric I had around in my boxes. Topped with tulle, delicate vintage lace and little star details around the upper tulle skirt this is a truly unique one of a kind set surely not found elsewhere. Take a further look here: Tsukifly Vintage Line: Vintage stars MSD dress and also for some more pictures ~

There are quite a lot on the table so another update coming soon ^-^!

Freya’s spring style & pillows

In Finnish: Tiedättekö sanonnan, että suutarin lapsilla ei ole kenkiä? Täällä tuntuu olevan se tilanne, joskaan kyse ei ole suutarista vaan ompelijasta, jonka tytöillä ei ole vaatteita.

Do you know the saying that shoemaker’s own children don’t have any shoes? At least in Finland we have such a saying. In this case I am not a shoemaker but perhaps we could stretch the saying: seamstress’ girls don’t have any clothes. So very true around here.

Because, with the saying or not, the situation is pretty severe with my crew of girls. Even if I consider myself a seamstress I seem to avoid making clothes for my girls. With that concluded I decided to try to make something with a serious intent for Freya for the coming spring time, using one of the previously completed corset tops as a basis for the dress. And I must say I am pretty happy with Freya’s new pastel mint style.

A hint of yellow and green is hidden in the skirt. Tiny silk flowers. Previously completed flower headband adds in some color to the whole. I cannot seem to be able to decide which hair style is better…

One of a kind pillow covers on Etsy

I mentioned these in my previous posts. Finally completed, in two different sizes and designs, you can find these unique decorative elements from Etsy. Japanese design comes in size 50 x 50cm, pretty common size for decorative pillows. Pillow case has four wooden buttons on its back-side. Rectangular pillow comes in size 50cm x 24 cm, a bit of an odd size. It closes from the other end with four pattern buttons. The fabric in itself is Studio Ghibli’s Kiki’s Delivery Service Jiji cat -themed. Both are great decorative elements for anyone who loves Japanese style or the said movie. Have a further look at Etsy.

il_fullxfull.1186315032_gzj0Lovely sunshine has inspired me to do more decorative elements. However, there are more than few designs that are waiting for me to proceed. More news coming up soon!~

Tsukifly spring updates

With the lovely sunshine over the weekend mornings I ventured out of the bed early to have a photoshoot with Freya. Some of the Tsukifly creations got updated pictures. Like the above Black/Gold framed dress.

I have kept mentioning this walolita outfit in some of my previous posts and finally, here it is. It is a 5 piece outfit set with japanese red bunny fabric kimono styled bolero, pleated red upper skirt, white lace under skirt, bow tie obi and a flower headdress. A great outfit set for the coming summer time with cute little details. Sleeves are elbow length in traditional kimono style. Find the outfit set from Etsy: Red Walolita outfit.

I was inspired to try out the making of panties. So a complete set for Lillycat was created. The white corset style top was already on offer alone but I thought it needed the panties to complement it. Now I am happy with the outcome. Check the updated listing here: Lillycat white underwear set.

Previously I took the picture with Lunetta showing off the winter style by Tsukifly. The Duffle coat was part of the set but not yet available through Etsy. I assure you this cute and fluffy duffle will be available shortly. Some of the pictures still need to be resized.

On the pages of a magazine

SAMSUNG CSCIts lovely how the sunshine seems to wake you up from the long slumber of the dark winter. It feels like you can do so much more with the light around. It is different to take photos with natural light than to try to figure out how to make it work with artificial means.

I wanted to change the outlook of the blog and now that it is done I see I am in dire need of new pictures. Both for Tsukifly purposes but also for the fun of it. So I made it my (yet) another project to take some new picture material.

Above you see Tsukifly clothes on Lunetta (Souldoll Aehael) in magazine style. This is why one of the Etsy sections is called Mix & Match because generally all the pieces go rather well together. So this is one example of that. In the picture there are four Tsukifly pieces pictured: Little Miss Polka dot dress, A pair of white legwarmers, An MSD Duffle coat and knitted wool hat. As for the duffle coat I am still finishing info, pictures and other details. A glimpse of that nicely with other items.

I was also pleased to receive a review and feedback regarding Tsukifly items. Thank you ~
