I hate reading patterns. I got frustrated that the pattern called for things the sales clerk did not advice me, so I used what I had thought I needed. I am so impatient, I skipped the pattern and made my own version using dowel rods. They are cute and function okay. I have not found a claps for my string, so you have to tie it. I have 5 more to finish. Between schoolwork and everything else, I may be finished in a week. Gosh, I hope so.
I bought fabric and notions for dollies today. I want to create so badly!!! I can barely stand it any longer. I have 2 weeks left of school and week off. That would be a good time to teach my mom how to help me make dolls. She normally is a good sewer..lol She needs me to fix the machine and thread it all the time. But, I think she will get the hang of crafting with me.
