New Designs For Some of My Alpacas Rock Custom Fabrics


I just LOVE designing fabrics and love it when some of the graphics I create for other purposes end up creating wonderful fabric designs.  Such was the case with some of the alpaca  graphics I created for the Alpacas Rock line of e-printables. The graphics were also a perfect fit for a custom fabric line so I created one called Alpacas Rock Fabric Designs Collection back in 2008.

I hadn't updated any of these designs since them and decided to do so over the winter snow season.  You can't go outside so why not design fabrics....lol Makes sense to me...

There are 73 designs in my Alpacas Rock Fabric Designs Collection now.  Eighteen of them are new custom fabrics which will be available soon.  I hope you like my re-designs.

Our Wonderful Alpaca Everyday Accessories, Household and Home Decor Products


Not only do the alpacas love to decorate for the holidays and plan birthday parties they also love creating products they can use everyday.  So,  they decided to create several different graphics for their Alpaca Everyday Accessories, Household and Home Decor Products line.  We have pillows, runners, place-mats, tablecloths, bath accessories, bathroom towels, kitchen towels, coffee mugs, coasters, serving trays, platters, cutting boards, aprons, magnets, pitchers, plates, blankets, throws, paper party goods, LED candles, electronic devices accessories and so much more.

We even have scarves, bandannas and ties.  If you're an alpaca lover I'm sure you'll find an adorable design and customized product you love.

Our Alpaca Everyday Accessories, Household and Home Decor Products line include some of the graphics shown below:

Gotta Love Alpaca Fibers and My Boards on Pinterest


Four years ago my sister and her husband became alpaca farmers and started Rock Garden Alpacas. Two years later they started Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber for selling all their alpaca fiber products, including roving, raw fiber, carded batts, handspun yarn, hand dyed roving, and doll hair fibers.

My sister had given me several large (make that HUGE) bags of roving and several carded batts (which I loved) from her alpacas Sunflower, Ivy, Cosmo, Zinnia and Masquerade which I used to make my needle felted art dolls, like those shown in the picture collage above.   I loved working with the natural alpaca roving and carded batts - especially Masquerade's gray fiber batts.  It was fabulous for making the needle felted dolls.

Several years ago I was visiting my sister and learned how to card batts and dye roving.  It was a lot of fun and I came home with some wonderful carded batts and lots of bright and cheery dyed roving packs. I had Fall combination colors, beautiful blues and purples, Christmas colors and so much more.

Two years ago my sister started spinning her alpaca roving into yarn.  She subsequently learned how to hand dye her yarn and utilize several methods for plying it.  Last year she sent me a surprise package in the mail that contained some of her handspun alpaca yarn.  I was thrilled and put this to good use with some of my mixed media art dolls - especially the witches. I've used her raw alpaca fiber, alpaca roving (natural and hand dyed) and handspun alpaca yarn for some of my dolls hair and have to tell you it's just wonderful.

I keep looking for various ways to use her alpaca fiber products and have to tell you that the possibilities seem endless. I had so many little sticky notes for this project or that project or this method or that method that I'd like to try or thought she might try that it was getting a little unwieldy. So, I decided to set up Pinterest boards to handle all the pins. So now I have three wonderful Pinterest boards instead of thousands of yellow sticky's everywhere.



I have a spinning, carding, batts, roving and making felt tutorials, video's and how-to's board. I'm hoping that when my sister finally teaches me how to do this all these tutorials will come in handy.

If you love my Spinning Tutorials & Carding, Batts, Roving & Making Felt Tutorials, Video's and How-To's board please follow my board by clicking on the link above.



I have a dyeing fabric, yarn, wool, alpaca, ribbon & threads tutorials, video's and how-to's board. I love visiting that board just to see all the wonderful colors of the yarns and roving and some of the methods are very intriguing.

If you love my Dyeing Fabric Tutorials, Video's, Patterns and How-To's board please follow my board by clicking on the link above.



And, I have a weaving & loom tutorials, video's, patterns, and how-to's board. Hopefully, this will come in handy as well.

If you love my Weaving & Loom Tutorials, Video's, Patterns and How-To's board please follow my board by clicking on the link above.

I also set-up three other Pinterest boards - AmigurumiCrochet, and Knitting.  I've already pinned over 250 pins to my knitting board - all of which I want to try.  I know how to knit so that should be no problem and have always wanted to try those really big knitting needles they have today.

I've got close to 700 amazing crochet tutorials on my crocheting board all of which I'd love to try.  Of course, I'll never be able to do all of them.  First and foremost I would need to learn how to crochet. Hopefully when I finally have a chance to crochet something some of the how-to's and pins will come in handy.

It should come as no surprise that I also love amigurumi as it basically involves knitting or crocheting little animals and dolls.  Truth be told it's the adorable little crocheted amigurumi animals that are the real impetuous for my learning crochet.

Who Doesn't Love Amigurumi, Crocheting, and Knitting?



I learned how to knit as a young child. One year I decided to knit these really big Christmas stockings with different colors and images and gave them to my family for Christmas presents. Every one loved them - especially the kids as they held a lot of presents. Unfortunately that was so long ago we no longer have those stockings and, I, foolishly never took a picture.

What I do remember, however, is thoroughly enjoying knitting. I haven't done it for many, many years and would love to find some time to do so as I keep adding pins to my Pinterest knitting board that look like wonderful knitted projects to try.

I've already pinned over 250 pins to my knitting board - all of which I want to try.  I know how to knit so that should be no problem and have always wanted to try those really big knitting needles they have today.

If you would like to learn how to knit hopefully these tutorials, video's and how-to's will be helpful.

I've got close to 700 amazing crochet tutorials on my crocheting board all of which I'd love to try.  Of course, I'll never be able to do all of them.  First and foremost I would need to learn how to crochet. It's one craft that I could never master as a kid.  Maybe now I'll be able to.

Hopefully when I finally have a chance to learn how to crochet and crochet something some of the how-to's and pins will come in handy.

It should come as no surprise that I also love amigurumi as it basically involves knitting or crocheting little animals and dolls.  Truth be told it's the adorable little crocheted amigurumi animals that are the real impetuous for my learning crochet.  I'm determined to master this as I just have to make some of these adorable creatures.  With close to 250 pins on my Amigurumi Pinterest board I'd better get started.

If you love amigurumi or want to learn how to do this hopefully these tutorials, video's, patterns and how-to's will be helpful.

For sure when and if I do start to knit and finally learn how to crochet I'm going to need some of my sister's Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber handspun yarn.  That is, if I can convince her to give me some of it. Wink! Wink! Oh, baby sister - I hope you're reading this post.....

Our New Alpacas Rock Birthday Party, Home Decor and Clothing Products


One of the reasons we started "Alpacas Rock" was because the "dollies" and I had so much fun with our "It's Raining Doll Parties" Hawk Family Line.  So much so that we decided to create a line of party decorations, supplies and home decor and clothing products for their alpaca cousins.

Truth be told the "dollies" had been wanting me to do something for their alpaca "cousins"  since I had visited my sister and had come back with pictures and pictures of their "cousins."  So the"Alpacas Rock Line" for boys and girls birthday or crafting parties was born.

The "Alpacas Rock Birthday Party Home Decor and Clothing Products" line is for party supplies, party decorations, home decor and clothing products for boys and girls.

This line consists of graphics of some of the "dollies" alpaca cousins including Cosmo, Masquerade, Sunflower, Zinnia, and Ivy. Masquerade  who is a a full Peruvian alpaca is the mascot.  Our new line includes the following four graphics:
