I played around making doll dresses yesterday and had borrowed dolls model them. While putting these St. Patrick's Day outfits together I had a great deal of fun doing what I call "needle doodling". I know this type of thing is usually called "embellishment", but the way I approached this, just fiddling around without any specific plan or intended outcome, certainly felt like doodling, only with a needle and thread, beads and ribbons.
I'm very happy with the results. I'll eventually put them up for sale on Etsy.com, when I get my online shop up and running. I'm gradually working towards that goal.
