Finally!

After so many tries, I have perfected the patterns I was trying to write, well, to be honest I don’t know if someone could understand my so called patterns. I am still in the process of learning, and it is tough when you’re learning on your own.

The normal thing to do when learning a new craft is to start with easy projects, maybe knit a pot holder, a washcloth, or a scarf but not me, oh no, I don’t know what I think I am but I dive right into more challenging projects.

I looked around for knitting patterns or clothes for my 80’s Strawberry Shortcake dolls but there are not many available and their original clothes cost more than the doll itself.  I know it would be awesome to have their original clothes but now you are free to give them new styles, new personalities, right?

This particular outfit was inspired by the work of Holly Hobbie, Joan Walsh Anglund, Betsey Clark, Tasha Tudor, and Beatrix Potter among others great illustrators whose work captures/depicts the warmth, and innocence and the joy in small things in life.

About foolishlife

Words cannot describe what we are. We are a little bit complicated to explain. All we can say about ourselves is that we live a foolish life. EkkE-Mekka, we are sister and Ed is our little nephew. The three of us are always finding new ways to pass the time. We cosplay, write, sew, draw, do crafts, chase the ice cream man and a whole lot of other things. So, we hope you enjoy reading about our silly adventures.
