Invited to YouTube Creator Day! June 6, 2015 | SugarPlumDolls.com

I was a little skeptical a few weeks back when I received an email invite for a Youtube Creator Day in Atlanta, Georgia! But I decided to check it out and go anyway! I figured what the heck it's a good day trip to go to ATL. 
 
OMG Goodness!!! It was an awesome day!  I can't tell you too much because they would not allow photos and filming in most areas! 
I learned a lot and hope to use all of what I learned to make SugarPlumDolls.com youtube and our youtube channel even more fabulous!

I also got to meet another youtube creator who I have admired for many years while building my own channel. Miss Tracey of Little Story Bug  She and her husband are wonderful people!  Please visit her channel and subscribe. Sometimes I just watch her videos to de-stress after a long day!

My New Heat Press Machine and Where you can get one too!

My New Heat Press Machine . Short video showing you how I attached my rhinestones for my handmade handbags. It just arrived this saturday and my fedex guy did NOT throw it at my door! He is a good guy my fedex guy! This was my first time using a heat press. I am showing you the process I used, just remember if you get one to be careful, as it gets hot very quickly and it is very heavy. Be sure you have a strong table to set it on! It will take some practice with the heat settings, timer, transfers, etc.. just be sure to practice first! Hope you enjoy this video!

My Pattern Making Adventure!

Somehow I got it in my head that I want to design sewing patterns. In doing research on the net, I discovered that like everything else IT'S HARD!! Well actually learning anything new may seem hard, but it does get easier as you learn each bit of information.My goal is to create patterns that are simple to use, so that new sewers don't get frustrated (like I have been at times) and have a box full of unfinished sewing projects. If you have seen any of my videos http://youtube.com/clothespindolls you know that I like to keep it simple. In learning how to make cloth dolls, I gave up with patterns with multiple pieces a long time ago and came up with the perfect (I think) pattern for making cloth dolls. Cut from 2 pieces of fabric, stitch it together and add hair and accessories and you are done! Soon I will have the doll pattern for sale in my etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/clothespindolls Now the next step is for me to learn how to make patterns for childrens clothing that people can purchase and they will be super easy and have lots if illustrations.. And just to share with you some of my research if you are into pattern making I have posted links and stuff below. If any of the makers of these products want to send me some samples to test feel free to message me here on Facebook.Have a great day everyone! I will also keep you posted on my progress. All i need is a Pattern Dafter Ruler and some french curves I think Fairgate Pattern Making Ruler Kithttp://www.voguefabricsstore.com/Fairgate-Pattern-Making-Ruler-Kit.html DKEMEL Patternmaking method http://dragana.com.au/Products.html Apparently you cannot buy the pattern drafting template/ruler by itself http://www.etelestia.com/en/add-cad-patterns-library-software/pricelist.aspx This is great but almost $400 http://mariamartin.com.au/shop/ Good information here http://www.pgmdressform.com/pattern-making-supplies-c3/ desiging stylushttp://www.surefitdesigns.com/DesigningStylus.html Pattern Making Ruler http://www.nancysnotions.com/product/lutterloh+pattern+making+ruler+set.do
