Introducing Amelia & Mousie Mousie

Introducing Amelia and MousieMousie!
I've made two different dressing options - I love knitting cables - a snuggly mohair jumper and hat with cute ruffle pants - and a gorgeous long cable dress. I've also made some matching mousies - fun to make in lots of different yarns - as you can see I have had lots of fun experimenting with yarns!

Florence - my latest knitted doll

Introducing Florence - a dressed doll with 3 different floral-themed clothing options. All clothes and shoes are removable. Wow, so many options for making your own doll - poppies would look amazing, and what about a Spring or Summer garden theme?

Knitted Ballerina Doll - Evangeline

After years of sewing cloth rag dolls, I have finally branched into knitting dolls. 
So here is Evangeline, a ballerina, approx 20 inches high, knitted flat and seamed. She's got a little ballerina bunny. I think she needs a whole class of these little bunnies to teach!  xx




Pattern is now available in  my Etsy store.

Myka, Lillian and Gracie

Myka Mouse, Lillian Bunny and Gracie Bear are just waiting for their ballet class.  These are from the larger mouse and bunny (and soon to come bear) ballerina patterns. 

I've knitted them in a mohair blend;  the yarn was supposed to be 8 ply, but really too thin, so I knitted these little sweeties on size 13/ 2.25 needles.  Exactly the same as the larger toys, but how sweet are they are little miniatures!

Knitting knitting and more knitting

I'm heading in a new direction this year.  Rather than procrasti-knitting, I am actively designing and knitting an loving it.

First...
Myka Mouse

So I've been playing around with turning some of my most popular cloth doll designs into knitted designs.
Here's my first attempt. This is based on Miss Mouse - similar in size to my Miss Mouse cloth critter pattern - 16 - ish inches.




Pattern is available in my Etsy Store, website, TradeMe store, as a printed pattern or PDF download.
