Heidi Ott dolls family

Doll collections are not always made quickly. They are replenished slowly, and often consciously. The beginning of this collection was launched a few months ago when I bought a Toddler doll. When I got used to it and loved it, I thought I’d be able to create clothes for the little doll from the collection of dolls for the Dollhouse. So I got the baby from Heidi Ott.

As I wrote, these dolls strike a very delicate and attention to detail of the body and especially the face. It seems that the faces as living and never cease to wonder at this amazing drawing of faces.

So the other day my house finally came with the following doll from a large collection of dolls Heidi. This is the Doll Lady. Her height is 5.5 inches. She^s body is not a puppet in the usual our understanding of the meaning. It’s really the female body in a very reduced size. Quite harmonious and proportionate. Now my small family to gather.

So I was finally able to implement my old idea to make a small collection of knitted dresses in one style and in one color. For the first collection, I chose the color pink. He is the best to dolls. Gives soft and mood puppet happiness.heidi ott dolls

“Fashion verdict”

On Russian television, there is a project called “Fashion verdict”. A very popular program. The essence of this transmission is that the program invites the woman. Who does not know how to dress or do not know how to combine clothes. One leading it protects and finds many reasons why she does this. Second leading, on the contrary, criticizes a woman and advises how to properly dress. The chief judge is either known to the designer or, as is now well-known fashion historian Alexander Vasiliev. The first part of the program devoted to the hearing of the defendant and the Prosecutor. In the second part, the woman returned to the shop and she chooses three outfits. Invited to the famous person commented on the selection of participants. In the third part of the program, the stylists work with the participant and to your taste decorate it. The audience in the Studio at the end of program vote, or the choice of the heroine of the program or select stylists.
Here and planned to do something similar)

Pattern for Julia

Now I am asked to write a pattern for knitting dresses. I’m sure is written it. And I’ve already started working on it. I must admit that I find it difficult to do yourself. Definitions and abbreviations for the description of works in Russian and English languages differ from each other. And method of knitting, as I recently learned, is also different. But that does not mean to associate knitting my dress will be difficult. I will try to write easier and make more photos, so you will understand the process of its creation. But let’s focus on some of the complexities of this process.

1 Tools for the job.
I work very thin needles for knitting. Their size of 1 mm. In the American system, they have the number 0000.D9987-3 (1)
2 Yarn.
As you know from my previous posts, I also choose a very thin yarn. For example, yarn Nirvana has such data in 25 g (0,88 oz) of 340 meters (372 yds)
In this work, it is very important patience and attentiveness.

But I tried to make the pattern is not very complicated dresses. It turned out to be quite interesting and exciting for me. The dress I chose that.title 1

I like dresses for dolls, which you can then add different accessories or create a similar dress a second time, slightly change the pattern of knitting. Like this white knitting dress. It is patterned, but a little-added ornament on the front.2194

If you are interested in this dress, you can see it in my store on Etsy.

Project for Julia

Continue to test the yarn Nirvana. For a new project, I chose shades of green and light beige color. The dress was conceived as an outfit for Julia to autumn period, with long sleeves and floral patterns. For flowers, I chose a dark shade of dusty rose. For the petals of pale green edging and part of the ornament of the marsh shade. I came up with to complement the dress a small headband with flowers and decorate them the hair of my doll.creativhook AG mini

After I knitted a dress, you should choose the suitable color of buttons. I chose buttons in tonal colors on the ornament.

The dress looks very soft and warm for fall and winter. And ornament for the hair, too, was great.

New dress and the idea.

Today my story will be all about the single dress, but about an idea! I recently dismantled my huge inventory of yarn and thought….Why not make a small collection of dresses, only United color palette. Each dress will be knitted of one color of yarn and embellished with floral embroidery.  Some of the dresses I showed you.  This time I chose an amazingly beautiful color. This colors name is  Nirvana – Butterscotch by Filatura di Grossa Italia.272cb43926014118a4af839b9da549e6I knitted the dress, the bottom of the dress designed small two-tone ornament, imitating pebbles on the ground and Chose the right thread for embroidery.  The idea of embroidery became this image from the Internet.

Crimson fashion show

Today my story will be devoted to the Nirvana from the Italian yarn manufacturer Filatura di Crosa and dresses for dolls. As I wrote before, for my works I use only very high-quality yarn and often produced in Italy. Soft and thin, it fits perfectly for knitting the smallest dolls. The composition of this yarn contains Merino wool, which is considered the best material in the world.Yarn Nirvana has a wonderful feature — it absolutely does not irritate the skin, so is perfect for creating baby things. Also, 77e5942697d1af20b114bd2b9d7e2ebdit is possible to knit products for Allergy sufferers and people with sensitive skin. In addition, the yarn is Filatura di Crosa Nirvana has excellent thermostatic properties and elasticity, so stuff from it for many years do not lose their properties and retain an attractive appearance. It is also worth noting that, according to experts, products made from Merino wool have a positive influence on health, realizing a micro-massage the body and thereby improving circulation. Care, too, such things will not cause you trouble. Wash this yarn in warm soapy water, wring out in a towel and then dried in the unfolded form. Full description

Full description
Roll length: 340 m;
Weight: 25 g;
Material: 100% Merino wool;
Needle Size: No. 2,0-2,5; ( but I prefer No. 0.6 – 1.0)
Knitting density: 10×10 cm – 34 loops 38 series  ( In my case, 70 loops 100 series.)

Some fans and collectors of dolls like when their dolls dressed in the same dress. I heard this opinion from my clients. And since dolls are different in size, the dress can be linked with small changes, but stick to a single style. As decoration, you can use miniature embroidery or lace, small decorative items ( I have the items for jewelry making) and crochet flowers. And believe me, your dolls are amazingly beautiful, even if the color of the dresses they match.
So, I chose to create this mini collection Pink color yarn Nirvana. As my models represented: American girl mini Julia Kelly by Mattel and Heidi Ott Toddler. All the attention is on the screen.

She’s got an amazing face. It is drawn so beautiful that it seems very alive. Her height is about 16 cm ( 6 inch), painted eyes, hair of excellent quality. I found an amazing wizard doll shoes, and now my Julia can perfectly stand on your desktop. Arms and legs move.
