YAY! We did it! Our Pull my String App has been approved by Apple and you can download it from the App Store. Happy winking!
We’ve also built a Pull my String website to use on your desk- and laptops.
BETA version for android now available
There’s a BETA version for android available as well but it may not work properly. Please try it out here. We would appreciate your feedback.
Let’s color the world Blythe!!!

Do you know Bloglovin’? I am sure you do. Blogloving a pretty cool platform following blogs without receiving 1000000000000 emails a day. You have a list with your fave blogs and a pretty neat overview over the latest posts of all the blogs you follow. I really like it and just joined with *jaszmade. Follow *jaszmade with Bloglovin’.
Well, I already told you I am working on a Blythe App with my husband. The app is generally done but is still waiting for review at Apple’s. We are now building up a web app for those who have no smartphones at all and you Android users out there. We may not be able to make a real Android app these days but we will find a way to include you!
Further on I am taking part in a big Blythe project as the team’s rerooter (will show you my results pretty soon) and last but not least I am restoring another Kenner girl: Brooklyn of supertaan who I met some days ago in Berlin. So far I cleaned Brooklyn’s face, repaired her lip rubs, got rid of one or two leeeeeettle scratches and refreshed her eye-make up (need to do it once more). Also she had her first hair treatment.
Ever since the iPhone came out I wanted to make a Blythe app. A few weeks ago Sven (aka. Mr. *jaszmade) came up with a cute idea: Why not creating a free app for the Blythe Community on flickr to tell each other where and how we are!? You know something like I am quirky today (orange) because I just got a new Blythe or I am mad (green) because my photos are too dark… or… [whatever] you can think of…
We did!!! We built it!!! Look, here is the idea:
1. After the App is loaded you have the chance to login with your flickr account. You need to be logged in to share your thoughts with the community or you just can post the mood without your own input.
2. Choose one of the Blythe moods/colours (left) and tell your friends on the next screen (right) what you are up to (obviously you would choose “click me” to get to the the input field) and show the map with all our thoughts and moods (you can click on the little faces to see what your friends are writing):

Some time ago I got a mail from a Blythe lover living in Berlin! YAY! It was Taan/ supertaan on flickr and we met at Starbuck’s yesterday. So exciting! It was a pleasure to meet a Blythe person in Berlin. Now I am *SO* looking forward to BlytheCon EU
The sweet Kenner girl is Taan’s Brooklyn who is now at the Jasz house for a little spa.
YAY! I made it! As one of the many many peeps all over the world who took part in Zoe’s Me-Made-May-Challenge 2012, I mastered a full month of wearing one self-made bit everyday. At the beginning I thought I could never make it but after a while I got inventive and tried to wear at least a pin which I made myself if not a full outfit. These were my little helpers in case I just couldn’t wear a piece of self-made clothing:
My new favorite bag (left), I made it after the weather got too hot to sport my knit-felted bag (up right); my black tatted necklace, one of the first presentable bits of my new passion: tatting. I also have a tatted bracelet but didn’t take a picture of it.
These three skirts as well as some black pants (which I forgot to photograph) were the perfect everyday wear and could be combined with a lot of matching tops. Especially the black skirt and trousers helped lot to master the month. I wore them pretty often and that gave me an idea on what I should focus my sewing-goals in future: I need much more separates to wear and I should start making tops instead of only dresses or skirts.
Some of my all-time-favourite dresses. While I have the dotted one in the middle for years now, the striped sailor dresses on the left and right are new additions to my wardrobe. I made them at the beginning of MMM’12 and I love especially the navy-white one with the ring on the left – that’s so my dress! It is made out of jersey knit. I thought I would be loathing sewing knits but found out that I actually loved working with them. If you are still unsure but want to try knits you can find a lot of inspiring thoughts and help on sewing knits on Lladybirds blog: Conquering Knits: A Self-Help Guide and on Sewaholic’s: A Big List of Tips for Sewing Knits!
So what’s my resumé after a full month of me-made-treasures?
- I love working with knits!
- I feel happy wearing something selfmade everyday – even when it is just a bag or a necklace. Somehow I feel more special about myself knowing there is something I made just for me to express my own style. I want to feel like this more often in future!
- I really need much more separates, especially trousers in more than one basic colour which is always black for me. Sure, I have some from H&M, Mexx and so on but I hate that most of them are not as fitted as they could be. Same with denims and tops. Somehow I’m always too lazy to make a blouse or shirt because there are loads of them in stores. Why would I sit down and sew a T-shirt? Well, after MMM ’12 I know why: Because I feel better doing my thing!
- I learned (again) that I do not like to wearing most of my me made dresses in public because they are much too overstyled for everyday needs. Look at the first pic e.g., I mean, I love the dress on the left – a lot – but I do feel like a clown wearing it going to the groceries… so my goal is (again) to sew for my daily routine and not for the fantasy of owning more dresses than a year has days. Something I do not wear without to think about is just an obstacle but no gain.
- I really don’t like to have my picture taken! Bluarp!
- I should overcome the fear of making a jacket or coat. Finally! I really should. Maybe I start with a cape. We will see…
- Last but not least it was a pleasure to see other people wearing their outfits – I stalked so many blogs this may, it was a pleasure Thanks to Zoe for the inspiration of Me-Made-May!
