I'm still working away. I'm mostly finished with Estella and her brother, the Estella Boy.
Janome Sewist 500. It's all mechanical, and has adjustable presser foot pressure, which I feel is necessary for sewing small fussy things. It has fewer features than my old machine, but I didn't want to pay more than $300. There are cheaper machines with more goodies, but this looked like the most reliable one for the money.
Once I've sold some miscellaneous doll stuff, I'd like to make a big TaoBao accessories order through a shopping service. Prices are usually half to a third that of eBay and western resellers, and there are so many more products available. Several shops offer "small iris" options on their eyes.
