Sewing, sewing....

I did two sewing projects last night and need to continue on more. I finally buckled down and did Mrs. Claus' skirt. I cheated on her outfit. Nancy's doll things on Ebay made the little Christmas vest, and the white ruffled blouse was from a Silkstone clothing pack. I got her little glasses at the GLOSS convention. I made her skirt from red fabric in those fabric squares for .97 cents. (You would not believe how hard it is to find approriate scaled Christmas fabric.)
I also buckled down and sewed my Realpuki SoSo (Wren) some Christmas pajamas out of a Christmas sock from Michael's. I still need to add some buttons or pom poms to the front for her. I was surprised that they came out so well, it has been a long time since I sewed something this small. 

For those unaware in the fashion doll world, Wren is a Realpuki ball jointed doll. Their feet have magnets in them as do their hands and she stands on a small metal doll stand without support because of those magnets- I took the wire part out of the back of it. (sorry about the very visible price tag.) Her hair is a wig made of mohair. 

I need to make some pajamas or sweaters for Maizie and Dixie, my Felix Brownies as well. 

Mrs. Claus was busy yesterday with her photo ops with Santa and overseeing the elves working on the assembly line.

Well the elves are pensive and under alot of pressure! That's alot of dollhouses to get ready before Christmas! 
Still waiting on the door component which should arrive today or Monday.
Lastly, here is a display in my dining room created with the rest of the mini trees and one string of lights. The deer are from my mother's vintage Christmas collection.

In my next post I will explain a little more about the storyline of Wren and Finch Express and her role in Santa's workshop. She normally takes care of all the mail for the dolls with Marigold (a tiny sparrow who delivers the mail with the help of Wren) and now has volunteered to help Santa with all of his letters this year. More pics coming up soon!

thank you! I am on a roll and I have to act quickly or the holiday and the purpose of the dioramawillbe gone, lol..
Santa's workshop and his office has been on my list to complete. I have done one in 1:12 scale before, long ago. I'm hoping to get Christmas jammies done for the other two tiny bjd's and maybe some Christmas sweaters for the dolls too.
