About Me

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

Cloth Doll Status






Want to share my progress with you and to my cloth doll that she is indeed getting clothed. I would still like to give her a blouse and shoes, but that will come shortly. I did have a great time creating her hair out of "twine", I wrapped the twine around a pencil and used craft glue and tacked down the ends and press on a clamp for about 30min. to ensure the form and poof she had curls in her hair, and I also added a piece of scrap fabric that was laying round. Now that I pinned her together I now will take her apart and glue permanently the up due today. Buy the way, during the Seaside Doll class that I took at the end of May, one of the members painted each students doll face for added uniqueness, she's pretty talented!
