Sneak Peek :)

Sooo... I have a lot of fun new things in the works and I decided to share one of them before it's done. I have been working on customizable heirloom dolls. Made of a combination of new and recycled fabrics. I wanted to make them look classic with a touch of modern. It took a couple of faces and undoing and redoing and I think I have finally decided on one. The nice thing about them is that they are all made of fabric and thread, so no small pieces and extra parts. Can't wait to have them finished with clothing and three color hair choices blond (yellow), brown, red (orange). Stay tuned for more... have a relaxing Sunday.

"The mighty oak was once a little nut that stood its ground"

Happy Monday! This quote was in my fortune cookie and may quite possibly be the best one I have gotten... ever.
 It is so nice to see the sun and it is beyond inspiring to wake up to... I will be working on some owl pillow buddies today and in case you missed them here you go...

They are made out of recycled knit and totally customizable. They make neat little one of a kind gifts and are perfect for the eco- conscious loved one in your life. :)

It's official, Dainty Cheeks has a blog!

So excited to embark on a New Year... I have so many ideas and designs that I can't wait to share. I just completed 4 new upcycled sweater dresses and they have been added to the shop. My favorite thing about these is that they are as "one of a kind" as you can get. Each one is a little different and truly does have its own personality.
