Doll story

Black kitty & White Cat

A very small post about the cats) I don’t have cats, now I can’t afford to have it for different reasons. But I like cats, I like their independence and watch them very interesting. Imagine what a serious event, on stage someone reads the report on an important topic. The audience carefully closets Rapporteur…..and here on stage, behind the scenes it turns out the cat……. She slowly walks down the stage, encircling the audience and the Rapporteur’s attention. Then stop, for example, scratch behind the ear.открытие сезона_40м
Do you think that will be focused on all the attention to the speaker or not? Well, of course, all the audience’s attention is now focused on the cat! And it will continue to until she decides to go on his cat)
I’m not going to write about the symbolism of cats and their magical nature. But they will always be interested in us, and we tolerate their antics and intractable temper because we love them!il_570xN.978377298_oz8x
I too, can say, made my contribution to the adoration of cats) Here are two of my hits on this topic)

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

Doll story

Plastic celluloid dolls

Today’s post is just an overview. While I was busy with orders, I have collected a few beautiful outfits for my kids. P6Here they are my dolls. Nevertheless, I want to tell you about the material from which they are made. They are made of celluloid.

Celluloid – one of the first synthetic plastics ever created by man, and that in itself is remarkable.P4

He has another name, common among the fans and collectors. It is called Hard plastic. When celluloid was invented and gained popularity, and it was in the 1870s, almost all the dolls were breakable and fragile – bisque, papier-mache and wax, all these materials were easily breakable. It is therefore not surprising that the doll companies have started to experiment with celluloid rather quickly after its occurrence. By the early 1900 s celluloid dolls were already numerous, as celluloid is easily molded and inexpensive to manufacture. This plastic created on the basis of wood products that includes cellulose nitrate and camphor. First established in 1863, it has become a popular material for the manufacture of such items as decorations and dolls. The main period of production falls.

This plastic created on the basis of wood products that includes cellulose nitrate and camphor. First established in 1863, it has become a popular material for the manufacture of such items as decorations and dolls. The main period of production falls in the 1870-1930 years. Celluloid, however, was not the perfect plastic, since it was flammable and easily spoiled when exposed to moisture and were prone to cracking and yellowing.Doll celluloid very diverse: the size can vary from 3-5 cm to meters for large Japanese celluloid baby dolls. However, the majority of dolls are usually not too large because of the lightness and fragility of the plastic. And because of their small size, they have become so popular among fans of Dollhouse.P3

Hundreds of different companies have produced celluloid dolls in different countries – in Germany, France, Italy, Japan, USA and others. Germany began to produce them before anyone else, followed by USA and Japan. Well-known company for the production of celluloid dolls includes Rheinische Gummi und Celluloid Fabrik Co. (Germany, the sign of the turtle), Petitcolin (France) and Irwin (USA).  This the puppet company you see in the photo, made in Germany, and is marked ES.

New miniature collection

Very soon my little puppet shop will be the newest stunning collection of petite dresses for smaller dolls with a size of 2 inches.mini1012
At the core of this collection is the combination of high-quality wool with embroidery silk.ы21
I like the combination of wool and lustrous silk. Floral embroidery seems more voluminous and contrasts its brilliance with a matte finish wool fabric.1008

The very yarn for knitting very fine and silky, which allows you to work with a very fine crochet. I haven’t written that almost all the work to crochet 0.45 mm.
For those who prefer canvas, crochet, fabric knitted using, I can say that it is not worse. Perhaps it is not light and airy, but it keeps the shape and allows you to do the embroidery is quite diverse.
For the embroidery, I used silk thread companies, Gutterman and Madeira. The color palette of these brands is very wide. That allows you to make one flower a few shades.
In this collection, I used micro beads of gold color. He’s like a little the heart of the flowers. Some embroidery reminiscent of a familiar pattern of Zhostovo.

And as I wrote in my many posts, I want to make the outfits fit the dolls perfectly. For this reason, I often complete my collection with dolls. No exception and this girl.
She came to me recently and I immediately fell in love with her. bl6

A little bit of information, I think it will be interesting to learn about this line of Dollhouse miniatures. Doll Heidi Ott (Heidi Ott dolls) is widely known among collectors of the world.
They are made specifically for miniature doll houses the most popular 1:12 scale, but differ from other such dolls are not only incredibly fine workmanship of the details, and in some cases, and mobility comparable dolls 1:6. These dolls are characterized by a high artistic level.
Previously, I focused only on the photos and it was difficult for me to imagine this miracle.0572

 

Little of this doll family is less than two inches. The next size 2.5 inches. This series is called a Toddler That’s just such a baby and settled in my doll house. Heidi Ott (Heidi Ott) was born in Central Switzerland.
Her first doll she made for her daughter in 1970-ies. There are different interpretations of different sources, but more likely the beginning of the seventies.
Dolls “miniature series” she started doing in the 1990s. The dolls are so beautiful that they attract children as well as adults.
In addition to miniatures, Heidi Ott also produces large dolls 18″, the series is called “Loyal Friends”, this doll with a soft body. Subsequently, the books were written, the protagonists of which were these dolls. It is already known doll became heroes of books, books released later. This is a rare case, more often the opposite — doll repeat the famous book’s characters. The dolls were sold Target stores in the late 1990s. Later, these dolls were sold under the name “Students,” and later, “the Doll Games.” Since 2004, Heidi Ott no longer sells this type of doll, focusing instead on their wide range of miniatures. In particular, she is engaged and clothes for their dolls.
I want to add a little of your creativity in outfits for these wonderful dolls.ds5

Miniature doll 1:12 are overwhelmed by the large craftsmanship and have fans both among children and among adult collectors. The doll lady and man are fully articulated. This doll consists of 34 body parts which are assembled manually. The body has 14 movable joints. Face doll Heidi Ott hand painted. Tiny hands and feet made with the same craftsmanship, even small dolls. They are made of vinyl and some dolls from quality fabrics, and their strength is not enough for one generation of collectors. Each doll is unique. Skilled craftsmen and hours of hard work to create this beautiful doll. Face doll Heidi Ott have a lot of small touches and details, and thus she looks more natural. Their hairstyles are also unique and cute.Wigs, too, does this stunning mistress.0594

Doll by Heidi Ott there are already quite a long time, and now grandmother bought for my granddaughter’s new characters for a doll’s house — the grandmother who started the family collection many years ago. New various outfits, wigs transform the familiar molds for making flowers, and buy new characters is an exciting thing for the whole family.

White coat for Lati Yellow

There are some works that I repeat with trepidation. Because they are unusual and, I would say, it is beautiful in its tenderness. One of my favorites, it’s this white coat for lati Yellow.il_570xN.1043473944_fnig

The first time I was knitting it on special order. I was asked to do a white coat with embroidery. And I set to work. The idea of the coat was born very quickly, but visits I’ve been looking for. It was necessary to use a miniature crosses and embroidery stitch. And in the end was born here is a coat.ав

Then each following repetition required new embroidery and the new hat.
The selection process of embroidery is very exciting and not less exciting then the Perrin idea on the finished coat. Requires accuracy and attention. To I usually use embroidery thread Madeira or Gutermann. These brands have a wide range of colors and shades. That is what gives the food for the imagination.

I like to only work when on my desktop in order. The only way I feel ready to work. So nothing to distract me from implementing my ideas.

I start embroidery with excitement, sometimes a pattern is born instantly, sometimes I look at pictures and like try them on the finished product. But every time I hold my breath and dive into work.wc1

Embroidery is akin to meditation as if you are immersed in this world and nothing can distract from the process. That’s the feeling I like. Even more than the finished result.
Some photos of the process……The basis for coats as the canvas on which the flowers appear. This moment my most favorite.
