Hello everybody! Tamra here again to tell you about an indie designer who is one of my go-to girls for preemie clothes and Barbie dresses, Myshelle Cole, aka Mamma That Makes! http://mammathatmakes.blogspot.com.au/
Myshelle is a proud mamma to four kids, three girls and a boy, who somehow has time to design awesome baby clothes on the side. Her preemie clothes are well thought out and executed and easy to make, using simple stitches and construction. Bear in mind however that she uses metric hook sizes and measurements as she lives in Australia, so keep your handy-dandy needle sizer close!
Her Barbie clothes are just the most brilliant things! One of her daughters has special needs, so she needed to find Barbie clothes that would be easy for her little one to manage. The answer? Elastic hair bands! All or most of her Barbie clothes are made around elastic hair bands making for easy on-easy off. She even has a tux for Ken! I’ve made a bunch of her designs and I love them. (You can see one of my dolls modeling dresses from Mamma That Makes below)
Along with Barbie, Myshelle has several patterns for play food and other toys and games, including a super cute tic-tac-toe board.
I can’t say enough good things about Myshelle’s work. Whether you’re looking for preemie clothes or cute stuff for older kids, the Mamma That Makes will have something for you!
Thank you Tamra and Myshelle for the great work and beautiful pictures!
