Commission list.


So this is the list of Commissions for doll clothes. I’ll do my very best to work as fast as I can, at the same time as I try to juggle life. I hope you’ll have patience if you sign up.

~ For choosing what you want made you can check my Sewing album on Flickr, it contains everything I’ve sewn (quite heavy). Or my Etsy sold listings.

~ For fabrics I’m building a page with everything I have, look here. On going project.
If you have seen a certain fabric in my stream that you’d want me to use let me know.
You can also give me a list of colours or patterns you like and I’ll choose from fabrics I have and then we’ll agree on something.

(Price list will be given by email)

Sign up by sending an email to: jenny(a)icantdance.se, mark it ‘commission list’. It would be cool if you include what you’d want done. Not in detail, just short ideas and doll type, then we’ll get into the details when it’s your turn.

Edith & Ellen.


Another new addition to the puppelettes family are the Siamese twins Ellen & Edith.

Yes. They have three legs, it’s quite handy they say.


Made with Organic cotton and organic wool.

Say hey to Belle!

Bastien has been so lonely out on his sea trips I thought it was time he had a friend. So here’s Belle, an old-school lady who loves the sea and tattoos. They make an excellent team.
I also made them a boat. It’s a huge wooden boat in dusty pink based on a boat illustrated by my lovely friend Louisa Appleton.
Friendship. Belle does most of the work on the boat, while Bastien likes to watch dolphins.
Belle has swallows on her back, from her hand tattoos.

Made with Organic cotton and organic wool.

New items in my shop.


I have been working for three days on my new necklaces and decals. Things kept being added to my to do-list. Labels, photos, more labels and then more photos. Then to edit all the photos and put everything in the right bag with the right notes. I made tiny fabric bags for the necklaces and more labels. And gosh three days went by and finally everything is done. Sort of.

I’ve added lots of decals and necklaces to my Etsy this evening. I’m so excited about these things!

My necklaces are made with small light ball chains and wood beads which I’ve painted in different lovely shades. A lot of pastels and gold.

My decals are hand cut, my hand has been tired. They make every room fun, and will make furniture happy. There’s loads of different triangles, fun animals and a nifty Narwhal.

You can find everything in my shop. I hope you’ll like them all! <3

Building a desk.


Working on getting my room ready still. I’ve had two different desks set up since we lived in our apartment. One for my computer and one for my sewing machine. It’s looking kind of messy with two different ones now, so I’ve been working on a new desk.

I’ve bought a long white board from a building store, it’s about 2450x600mm. I found legs at Ikea and a white cupboard to hide my computer in. I’ve done an ‘ikea hack’ to the legs.

I marked up 22cm from the bottom and taped them.

They are curvy and called Nipen.

I bought pink paint, the same colour as my wall paper base. It has a little bit of a purple tone to it. I’m not very much into pink, but from the wall paper colours pink was the best way to go.  I didn’t want a dark colour (dark purple or black), and orange wasn’t an option. Matt keeps saying my room is looking like a Power Puff room.. he must have watched that show a lot.

And this is after the second paint layer. Looking pretty neat. Can’t wait to get this done!

My parents are coming up here next weekend to help me set it up. Matt is going to Italy for a week of skiing so I’ll have some company.

I really love my current desk, it’s from Ikea called Johan. They don’t make it any more, and I wish I could store it somewhere for the future but there is just no room. I tried talking Matt into taking it apart and putting it in the closet.. but he didn’t go for it. I’ll probably sell it, reluctantly.



I got the fabric I ordered from Ottobre at the end of last week. It’s super soft and the colours are just great. I made a pair of baby leggings today, in size 12-18 months. They are up for grabs if anyone feels the love.

Lying next to them are some of my decals.

Sweater designs.


Two of the sweaters I made with Spoonflower. The cat comes from my decal design and the quote print from a tote bag I made last year, which now lives with my mom.
I just included the hearts fabric (without the cat) in my design library on Spoonflower, when I’ve recieved the swatch you’ll be able to purchase it.

I would love love to make the cat sweater in kids sizes.

These sets will be added to Etsy.

New fabric designs.

I think I’m in a black/white phase.

Not sure how a skull cat came into the design..

Aztec Animals decals.


I got a bit inspired last week and made some new decals. It started of just as a black cat head, and then turned into a cat wearing an Aztec printed sweater. I ordered the decals with Spoonflower last night, together with some fabrics I also made.

It later evolved into a bear and a fox, but I’ll show them in a later post. I’m thinking they’d also be fun on furniture.

Pin cushions.


I ordered new fabric for wrist pin cushions a couple of weeks ago, and yesterday I started on four. I only have four wrist bands left, and I need to order some more. The store I got them at has such expensive shipping so I’m hesitating, I hate paying almost as much in shipping as the item itself. I haven’t found any other shop yet though.

Two cats with feathers and a hat, a scared braced girl and a very sad apple.

Our neighbours are rebuilding their house  and it seems they just started. There’s a machine humming in a very annoying sound, when it goes quiet it’s like my brain goes ‘aaahhh’. I’m not looking forward to this..

And today..


..I’ve been sick for a week. I’m so bored with it. I managed to take a 10min walk yesterday, first time out, and I was so tired after wards. I get so restless not having the energy to do things, create things. Yesterday I managed to do some crochet coasters, so I did two new sets of four. To have at the market in December, which I’ve still not received a full OK on. I have to go to the sewing store and get elastic waist band for leggings, hope I can do that soon.

So far, I have finished 6 Pin cushions, 3 crochet coaster sets, 4 cat coasters sets, 6 kids sweaters. I also have since before loads of puppets, a pile of beanies and bibs, 4 bottle necklaces and some hangers with cute cats and 2 leggings.

And I’m totally uninspired with the dolls at the moment.. haven’t made anything for them in a month? Gotta get that back soon. I have made these two kids sweaters though.

Cats & Feathers.


My decals arrived from Spoonflower last week. It took two evenings to cut them all out, but so worth it. I can’t wait to have my room redone so I can put some of them up here. I spend some time doing the labels for the bags and now the sets are all done. There’s 6 medium and 6 small sets. I also made two special sets called Autumn and Pastel, the last can be seen here. The colours turned out so nicely on this one.

I’ve had so much fun designing the bag labels and everything. I got sick  with a horrible cold on Tuesday evening so cutting paper is about all I’ve managed to do for two days. This is what I came up with as design for the bags.

They’re all in Swedish, I’m going to have a table at a Market here in my town in December. Hoping they’ll get some love there. After that, the rest will go to Etsy.

Kids sweaters.


I’ve been sewing some kids sweaters this week. I used one of the sweater patterns from my Ottobre pattern books, but I changed the pattern a bit. I’m sewing on the neckline and cuffs in another way, and I added a bottom cuff.

It’s quite fun to think about that I learned how to adjust patterns and such from sewing doll clothes. It’s a really good scale to learn on.

Any ways, since I got my new fabrics on Friday I’ve been itching to try it. While I waited for them to dry after a wash I made a really cosy apple sweater, in size 104. It has a fluffy inside, so it’s a perfect autumn/winter sweater.

The second sweater is a red striped raglan with a circus scene which is just lovely. The combinations of colours are so darn neat. Can’t wait to do more versions of it, next up is one with black/white sleeves. This is in size 92.

Sewing and fabrics.

I recieved my Ottobre pattern books last Friday, there’s so many lovely patterns in it. I brought them to my parents over the weekend so I could look in them and show my brother and Lina.I want to make some clothes for Joni so it was good hearing which ones they liked, and there was quite a lot of different ones they liked.

I started with a raglan sweater today, I just love that type. I picked out fabrics in brown and white. Clouds for the back and front, stripes for the sleeves. I’m actually going to make some adjustments to the sewing for the next one, some things I would do differently. Other than that, it was pretty easy to follow the instructions.

This one is size 98.

I have a huge amount of fabrics, but not many that actually match like this. So I sort of, ordered some. I can’t wait to get them to make some more sweaters, and some leggings. Just look at these!

Cats and feathers.


Spoonflower just shipped my order. Sweet!

Now starts the wait. It should take a week to arrive, but for some reason it takes two weeks to my house. If I’m lucky.

This order has my new sweater fabrics and wall decals! I’m going to do sets of them and add in my Etsy shop, I really hope someone will like them enough to get some. Yes. I added some new colours this time, an autumn and a pastel set. Tempting photo follows..
