Momma Cat got Lizette's new wig and shoes in the mail this week!  Lizette tried them on in front of Baby Cat and the rest of our cat family, and we all agreed that we like this look the best!

 Lizette's new wig was ordered from Monique Trading Corporation.  Momma Cat thinks it goes much better with her coloring than the previous wig.  Although, now she can change looks whenever she wants to!

Lizette's new shoes.
Momma Cat found these adorable shoe/boots on eBay and ordered them from a private seller in China.  They don't work too well with the outfit she's currently wearing, but Momma Cat thinks they're adorable and has already found a new outfit she thinks will look great with the shoes.  How's that for doing things backward!!!

Let me know what you think of her new look, would you?  Feedback is always good!

A long while ago Momma Cat purchase a cute, little 12-inch toddler doll, by Corolle.  She is exactly like one Baby Cat got when she was little.  Here's a photo to remind you.

Momma Cat cleaned her up, fixed her hair, and crocheted her a new outfit.  She used Bio Bimbo cotton yarn from Northwest Wools, in Multnomah Village.  She created the clothes as she went, so there are no written instructions. Sorry!

This last picture is of the bottom of Piccolina's  shoes.  Momma Cat likes to put faux suede, or faux leathers soles on the bottoms, to give the shoes a more finished look.  The faux leather in this case was repurposed from an old purse that Momma Cat had.  

That's all for now.  Momma Cat has some more projects to finish before she can devote any more time to doll clothes! But, don't worry, she'll blog about those too!

Momma Cat wants to introduce everyone to her new doll, Lizette.  She is made by the Tonner company.  She is part of the Ellowyne Wilde doll collection.  

Don't you just love those big brown eyes?!

 Lizette is 16 inches tall, she is jointed right above her rib cage, her shoulders, elbows, wrists and knees.  This particular doll came without hair or clothing, so Momma Cat was able to buy her for less than $80 on eBay! 

Lizette sans hair and clothing
 Lizette, Ellowyne, and the other dolls in that collection all have beautiful faces, but Momma Cat loved this one the best.  

Momma Cat bought Lizette two new wigs from Monique Trading Corporation
The second wig was just ordered, so it hasn't arrived yet. Monique sells high quality doll wigs, shoes, and other items for dolls of all sizes.  Since Lizette came naked, Momma Cat bought her a bra and panty set, hosiery, a pair of leggings, and a little cropped t-shirt from Doll Secrets
Doll Secrets sells doll underwear, tights, and various other items for dolls of all sizes.  The products are very high quality, at reasonable prices.  Momma has purchased many items for her dolls over the last two years, and has never been disappointed!

  Momma Cat intends to make, or buy Lizette a complete outfit, plus shoes.  But, clothing and shoes for these dolls are fairly expensive.  The shoes alone can cost $25 a pair! So it may be awhile before Lizette gets an entire outfit.  At least for now she's not naked anymore!

As you all know,  Momma Cat has been making Cat purses.  The first two were almost identical.  They were made out of black upholstery velvet.  The only difference between them was their linings.  One was red with white polka dots, the other, black with white polka dots.  

Well, Momma Cat found some interesting gray vinyl at JoAnn's, and decided to give it a try.  It was a lot harder to work with than the velvet, but the result was rather pleasing.  This cat looks just like Momma Cat's next door neighbor's little cat, Yuki!

Here she is.  What do you think?

 Momma Cat has found some gorgeous purple upholstery velvet at the Mill End Store , and a beautiful batik fabric to go with it.  Now she is going to make a different kind of bag!  So stay tuned!  She will show it to you as soon as she finishes it!

Making bags is a lot of fun, and Momma Cat has found that people like to buy them!  So, she is trying to make different types using new and interesting fabrics.  Wish her luck!
