My new doll "Zaynab"

Hey everyone!  How are you? Hope your life is filled with joy and happiness! I wish that for all of you!!!
I missed my childhood, me and my sister Nodira used to sew different kinds of clothes to my dolls:) It was so fun for me, getting  new clothes for my precious ones:)I remember those days and I smile with all my heart! I am grateful for my sister for giving me that kind of experience, who knows, maybe that installed me love for creating and sewing:) I love you sis!
The day before yesterday, I finished my new doll:) My husband and daughter called her "Zaynab"-very popular Uzbek name:) She is so cute and adorable:) She is nice, cheerful and happy too:) Meet "Zaynab":
Zaynab has brown eyes, 

 Oh those eyes...
 And a beautiful long hair...
Full length of her:

I sew a dress for Zaynab out of traditional Uzbek fabric called "Atlas" and she loved it:) 
She asked me for more embellishment, so I add in lace belt and those red edges for the neckline. Zaynab was happy:) 
I also gifted her a beautiful Uzbek hat -"Duppi":)  
Now Zaynab is fully satisfied with her look, but hey, she is asking me for a little bit of make up :) But, today its too late and I am tired, so I will make her up tomorrow:) She is such a naughty girl:)
See you guys! Let me now if you have some kind of suggestions:)
Love you all xoxoxox

Flowery pillow:)

Sometimes I do something and then forget about it:) So was with this pillow. I crochet some squares and flowers, but never finished it:) So I decided to make it already and get rid of that unsatisfied feeling of mine. At the end, I just loved my pillows!
Each pillow is made of 9 squares, that are sewn together and 9 flowers attached to the center of each square. I used silk fabric of two colors, for the front brown (to match my squares) and turquoise for the back. 
So these are 9 squares,
I sew it up to the brown fabric

Then attached flowers

I put smaller piece of the back lining and, 

Put bigger piece on top

I sew up the edges, 

And turn it inside out, 


I am so pleased with myself now and enjoying my new pillows:) 
Thank you for attention!!!

How I sew my animal print chiffon dress:)

Hi everyone! 
Animal prints are always trendy! It\s been a long time that I have decided to sew something new for myself and I chose a beautiful chiffon fabric with animal print and did some internet surfing:) And my luck! I found this great video of Carolyn Baxter on how to make a simple dress. 

I add my flower belt to enhance the beauty of my dress and I just LOVE the result!!!
