Harumika Fashions

For a Christmas present I gave granddaughter Hannah, age 6, a Harumika fashion design system. It includes a Barbie-size dress form, a tiny camera with a USB connection, and a few assorted pieces of fabric. I added to her fabric selection from my stash of fabrics and trims from years of sewing and quilting.

The dress form has a slit in the back to hold the fabric on the form without need for sewing.

When photos of the designs are taken with the camera and the Harumika software, they automatically upload to the Harumika Web site. The pics must be approved by them, which takes a couple of days, the then they can be added to the users lookbook. Any digital camera can be used and the pics uploaded to the site.

Hannah loves to design fashion for the dress form and she loves to pick out cute and interesting combinations of clothing for herself.

Craft stores sell self sticking crystals and pearls that make great embellishments. I gave her some mixes of different buttons. She sticks the buttons on with straight pins.
