Fabulous pictures, both Eeee-va, and Ursulalvr! I really love them.
I bought that same dress for my Shellie May, it's very cute. I was going to ask you where you got the bow, it's great. I don't know if I could make one, but I love yours.
The way you have Shellie and Duffy interacting is great, I love the little story you told with it. My bears behave like that too. Duffy can be a little clumsy, and Shellie is a bit of a tattle tale, but it's all harmless.
Awww thanks for the comments! Yea, The coat combined with the Sweet Duffy costume are my absolute favorite! Both for Duffy and Shellie May!
And when I first saw that dress, I had to get it! So glad I got it! It's so Shellie! But I did feel it was missing something so I made the bow!
The bow was simple to make, just sew two pieces of square fabric leaving a small space to flip inside out, make sure the edges are rounded off. Reverse the fabric so the seams are inside, stuff it with whatever you want. Then just attach a small piece of fabric in the middle and you got a Shellie May type bow!
My aunt just made a bunch of bows for me for my Shellie May. I'm going to ask if she can make some more for me in more colors. So far she's done red, navy blue, white with blue stripes, pink floral & ice cream cones. Next I'll ask for solid pink, purple, white & black. I need bows in just about every color in the rainbow!
Ursulalvr, I adore your Shellie May's personality. The first picture looks especially real, and I like the story. Great job! Both bears' clothes are nice and I LOVE the bow!
I like my tiny Duffy being by himself (so it's just me and him!) but I almost wonder if I should get a tiny Shellie May. (I also like Duffy because he's the only boy plushie/doll that I sew for…as far as making things is concerned, Shellie May would be just another girl to me.)
I love your photos Eeee-Va! I wish I could make clothes that small! Did you make them by hand or use a sewing machine?
Thank you! Some of each but mostly sewing machine for the shirt. (The "trim" on his sailor suit is machine-sewn but if I had to do it again I think I'd do it by hand with embroidery floss to make it straighter and thicker. (The US Duffy's shirt is much shorter but I think the longer one is cuter!)
The hat was hand-sewn except the "trim" on the top of the hat, which was done with a very tight zig-zag on the top of some stiffened felt.
This weekend, I may see if I can draft up a pattern for a felt vest for tiny magnet Duffy. It would be a very-little- or possibly no-sew pattern (if it can be glued), and I'll post it here if I get it worked out. I loved my Tiny Duffy without clothes, but I love him more in clothes.

Just some quick photos of the new costumes I got! Thank you so much DuffyD! Greatly appreciated!
Love that it's 2 costumes in one!
Some notes, the quality as usual is superb! Love LOVE LOVE them! Though, Shellie's boots are too big... which is odd, Duffy's fit nicely, but her's not so much, love the shoes though! Also, her panties are supposed to go down to her feet, but I don't like the look so I pushed them up. Idk, wearing a dress with pants? Odd, but super cute panties! Also! Haha! I got faulty panty! The Duffy mark is on the wrong side! Hahaha still VERY cute and I like it like that! It gives character! Overall very satisfied with these and can't wait for Christmas costumes!
Again thank you DuffyD for what you do! You are so awesome! I can't say thank you enough! And Loved the care package with the attraction pamphlets and maps! LOVE those! THANK YOU SO MUCH! Great service!
