After a bit of fiddling around, I got a pattern made for TODDLER sized birkies!   Please note: these are for toddler sized Sasha dolls and do not fit baby sized Sasha dolls.  Their feet are not the same.    Each pair is $30 plus $4 postage in the US and typically $14.50 for most locations in Europe.  However, 4 pairs can be sent for the same price.  

To order, please email me at      I will answer emails in the order they come in.  Some people use FB messenger, which is fine, but I go there second, after filling all emailed orders.  I have more than one pair of many colors.

And Now....for something completely New!

Hi, All,

I have decided to take a year off of taking orders for Sasha and her family's  clothes and shoes.

Why, you may wonder, and the reason is simply that I have a lot of ideas and techniques I want to try and never have time due to filling orders.  

I will still have items for sale from time to time and will use the format used by many makers of posting items for sale here on my blog on a first come/first served basis.

What about shoes?  I need a specific style/color!  From time to time I will post a notice that I am taking shoe orders and will then make them as requested.

It did take me awhile to come to this decision and as I said, I am trying it for a year, then reevaluating.  Time will tell if it works out.

Thanks to all my valued subscribers and customers, who have treated me so well for so long!

A Little Fall Color!

Finding fall color when you live in the desert can be a challenge, but we managed to go up in the mountains for a bit of "leaf-peeping" and exercise.  Taking the kids along always makes it interesting!

Our Moms said we could go for a hike if we behaved ourselves.
Ollie was a bit of a challenge cuz he was interested in everything!
For Pete's sake, Ollie, if you fall in that stream....  how did you get out there?
"Ollie, come down!"  "Here, let me get you."
"See Tansy, a sparkle rock.  Mom says it's Mica, but my friend Micah
 isn't here, so I don't think it's his at all."
Mom said there's a mouse hiding in this pinecone
and I can see his hind legs and tail.
I'll just wait till he comes out.
See Mom, we're being good!
Ruthie makes a "leaf angel!"
"Ollie, lay down and we'll bury you in pretty leaves!"
"What, Mom?  No, we're not 'up to' anything....."
"Dogpile on Ollie!"
Outside of a little "derring-do" with crossing
the stream, we've been good today!
Just your average little angels.....

A Fun Discovery at Our House....

So, Gia, Sasha, and William couldn't help but notice something new has arrived at Casa Murphy.  Of course, they had to have a look!

William, Gia, and Sasha: What in the world is this?
Gia: It says "Ye Olde Sew 'N' Sew Shoppe"
William:  Maybe Mom got it in England!

Sasha:  Mom said it is her new dollhouse room that she made with lots of help from Auntie Marlo.
Gia:  Yeah, a LOT of help from Auntie Marlo, I'll bet!
William:  Well, that's kinda silly because she doesn't even HAVE dolls!
It seems funny she'd make a doll house.

Gia:  Mom says it isn't a toy, which is good cuz she's a grown-up and they don't play with toys.
Sasha: yes, she said it is just to look at, but she sure seems to be playing with it a lot.

Sasha:  Look, a tiny door with bells and an "open" sign.  Maybe we can look inside closer!

William: Isn't this the little rock and flowerpot Auntie Margo gave Mom at the festival?
Now I see what she wanted it for!
William: If my trashcan was this full, Mom would make me empty it.
The store has a tiny thimble full of trash!

Gia:  Ooh, look, a little jar of gum balls!
Sasha: Where?
Gia: there...right next to the scissors and zippers
William: I wish they were REAL gum balls....sigh....
William: Lollipops, too...a whole jar full...and we can't eat those either.
I'm going to see if Mom will buy us some candy for real.

Gia:  Look at the tiny little embroidery floss on my hand?  Isn't it cute?
There's a whole tray full of them!

Sasha: Mom likes the picture on the wall that says, "Too much fabric?
I think you meant to say too small sewing room."
William: well, this is certainly neater and more organized than Mom's Sewing room...maybe she should work more on that and less time making little rooms!

Sasha: There's just so much to favorite is the cute little package...
the store must do mail order!

Gia: My favorite is the cat!  He looks right at home and has balls of yarn
to play with if he gets bored.
Sasha: And look on the counter by the register, someone is using their credit card!
William: Mom must be shopping here!

Gia: Mom put this here cuz she says that's what she always sees when she wants
a specific card of buttons!

William:  Hey, they accept credit cards...Mom says that she should always leave
her credit card home, but she never does!

Gia: I could look in here all day; there's so much to see!
William:  me, too! I hope the babies don't discover this or it could go badly.
Sasha: Oh, boy....I hope Mom has thought about that!
