A place to share and discuss cloth and crochet dolls made by hand.
really you can make your own?!?!?!?! i can't believe I did not know that... I need to find some to try it out, this is something I would really enjoy doing I think ;)
Wow! I take it that you paint the back????
Yep! It is as easy as that. Paint the back with simple acrylic paint, and the front looks awesome.Beth
This is very cool! I will have to try it!!!Thank you, and I love your blog!I'm attempting to follow it, but blogspot is being wonky at the moment.I've never made any creatures like this before, but your blog is inspiring me to try... so I hope you won't hate if I have a question or two!!!!
Hi Heather!I'm delighted that you enjoy the blog, and hope you enjoy making some of the patterns here. If you have any questions, please ask! I have several tutorials on my flickr site that may also be a help to you.Enjoy the crochet!Beth
Hi Beth,I'm still in the process of completing my doll, but just wanted to pass on to everyone that I used the empty socket of my rachet screw driver to press the back of the safety eyes in place. Be sure to put the eye through the eye whites, if used, and place through the completed head as directed, placing the front of the eye on something soft to protect it. Put the washer on the back of the eye, set it in place with a little hand pressure, and then use the rachet to set completely. Takes seconds. Carolyn
You can also print the eyes i think cos thats what BJD doll makers do with their doll eyes.. Love your dolls and has made 2 forget-me-knot kids.Clothes Im working on right now... Made top,miniskirt, underpants, dress and a longvest. Don't know how to choose name here so anonymouse will do Warm thanks for pattern, Ancie
Hi Ancie, thank you so much for your good words! I am curious about 'printing' the eyes...can you explain this some more? I'm always looking for better ways to make dolls :-)Beth
