Happy Valentine's day

Happy Valentine's day! Today it's the day of  love and lovers and I wish you'll spend this day with someone you really care.
I'll be honest, I'm not a big fan of Valentine's day, I think that it's a day just like others, but I'm really impressed by the "energy" of this day. Many people buy flowers or chocolate, others make something special like biscuits, cake or handmade gift, everyone express their love with a special gift for someone they care, I think this is really sweet. Happy Valentine's day my dears.

DIY - Make your own doll!

Click here for the Italian version.

Hello my dears! Today I'm sharing with you a very simple and funny DIY project! 
I've seen it some days ago at this supercute blog: see kate sew and I couldn't resist from trying to sew it!I really love Kate's projects, she is a source of inspiration for me and a motivation for myself to keep getting better!
I've decided to make this little doll for my niece, she was born in December and I wanted to do something special for her, so I've tried this project!
I'm not very good with the sewing machine but I've tried my best. I've chosen a pink felt for the hair, because I've always loved anime characters with pink hair, some white fabric for the arms and the legs, and a simple polka dot fabric for the dress.
I am happy with the results, I can't wait to give it to my sister.
Sewing this doll was very funny, and when I was finished my childhood memories came back to me, so...the motto of this project is "bring back your childhood memories"!
Good luck with your work. Have fun :)
