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

"The Graphics Fairy" ~ Brag Monday





Brag Monday ~ The Graphics Fairy ~ images 

When I saw this image on the Graphics Fairy ~ I knew I could make a 
eloquent crown for one of my dolls. 
The image is so cute and colorful. 
I down loaded the image onto fabric, the got the beads out ~ 
and started to bead on the outline of the little blue book, 
then a bit on the pink rose. 

After the beading I wanted to highlight the corners in black, 
so I used black glass glitter for that. Once I was done embellishing the image 
I sowed it to the card stock, then I used brads to 
connect the ends of the crown. 
Once the ends were connected ~ I just started to add a couple of little 
ribbon petals then, the white fur was the finishing touch. 












By the way ~ thank you for providing all the unique images 
and freely passing your wonderful findings out to us all ~ here in blog land and beyond ~ 

The Graphics Fairy ~ Rock On ~

Much Love ~ Andrea
