About Me

My photo
Upland, Ca, United States
Sissy Dre was inspired by my father, Robert Felix Rosales, particularly his stylish clothes and big-hearted ways of being. My father was always open to any new hobbies or opportunities and especially enjoyed meeting new people. I take on this creative venture to honor him in my own way. I have been making cloth dolls since January 2009 when I left the corporate world behind and moved to Upland, CA. with my family. Our lively household includes two teenage children, four dogs, six cats, and a wonderful husband who always supports us with love and grace. I had never worked a sewing machine before but I truly love making dolls and enjoy every aspect of creative life. Making dolls form scratch has opened artistic doors within me that I never knew existed and I hope this blog helps to inspire some crafty part of you too. 000000

Fabric Pears I made a couple of weeks ago, I was amazed at myself....

new to the sewing thing.....

I'm happy to get back on this site to share my frustrations and accomplishments on the sewing thing... I want to think that I could just pick up this hobby as easily as, lets say swimming! However, it takes practice, just like everything else. I do want to say I am having fun learning the trade and figuring out my mistakes. After much debate with myself I've decided to post a couple of pics on the items I've attempted to create and where I am at this point.
