More For The Toy Box…


With all the crafting and fitting in holidays I haven’t had much time to post lately, but here are a few items I’ve worked on in the last month.

Hopefully they will all go off as gifts to delight their new owners.

Hannah & Pip

Doll and Dog 2

As Autumn is fast approaching I thought a warm duffle coat would make a good seasonal addition to a dolls wardrobe and one she can use when taking her little puppy dog Pip for a walk!

The duffle coat is done in a simple garter stitch and I thought yellow toggles would work well with the yellow and green dress and yellow hair bows. The red lead attaches very nicely round the dolls hand.

Nothing nicer than meeting up with a friend. Both dolls are from the same pattern, just different hairstyles. Love using choosing the colours for the outfits, then seeing how different each one turns out.

From green & yellow to…

… to blue and pink…


and another one in similar colours.

Jack Bunny

Continuing with the duffle coat theme had to make one for a bunny

This time in turquoise and navy, which teams up nicely with the baggy overalls.

Baby Bear


This cute little 5″ bear would delight a little girl who loves putting dolls to bed as it fits beautifully in the 9″ Moses basket.


and looks very snug wrapped up in her blanket.

  3. Is the pattern for the duffle coat available to buy? All of your creations are beautiful.

    You are such a patient and talented woman. I Love your stuff. Looking farward to seeing your latest projects.
    Best of Luck

  5. Did you make your own pattern for the basket for Baby Bear? Or did you buy it from somewhere? I am desperately seeking a KNITTED pattern for a basket, but it seems there are very few! Thanks in advance!
