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

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.

Sweater for Julie.

My new doll Julie became for me a source of inspiration. Her sweet face looks at me in hope for new outfits. I wish her outfits were the most beautiful, the more yarn I have a lot of ideas and no less). The White sweater should be in every woman’s closet, and why not to knit a sweater our Julia. White sweater with braids this is a very cute outfit, and I started knitting it. When the sweater was almost finished, I thought….why not combine knitting and embroidery?)2500

To do the embroidery on the thin knitted fabric is not difficult. You can use some of the descriptions. Or just look at pictures. For example here are

As I have been knitting for a long time, I have accumulated a lot of small balls of different yarns. Sometimes so much so that I remember the orders when holding a particular ball.2505

 

Before you start to knit the sleeves, I made another photo. The flowers turned out all different and I did them in different techniques.

Nano doll from Bluefairy


Last year well-known Korean company BlueFairy announced the release of the new nano-jointed dolls growth of only 4.8 centimeters ( 2 inches).

20170313035535cont3

The advertising company was excellent. Fans of miniature dolls could not stay indifferent at the sight of this miracle. Dolls that distinguishes this company from many others? Very cute faces and Soft here, and it can serve as your company’s branding. I chose for my collection the little doll.

20170116013742cont620170313035535cont5

Despite its size quite small, the doll used all hinges like a big doll. It’s hard to imagine what is possible. When ordering you have the opportunity to choose make-up. I chose without this option in the hope that I have an artist who will draw me a face. I was not wrong, and after only a month and a half, my baby was already sitting on my desktop. She arrived in a branded box and at first, I was even afraid to touch it.4d2d

The first series of dolls was released with wings and a small magnet on the back of the doll. It really angel), Then my little doll went to the artist Marina. The wait lasted a long time, and that’s understandable. Draw eyes and lips on a tiny face proved to be very difficult. And I didn’t rush the artist. And finally, a baby with an angel’s face I have.
But then a new question arose))) the wig where the doll came from Korea was not in very good condition( I at your own risk tried to make a new one. Turned out to be quite suitable with blond curls.11dThe next stage outfits!!! Oh, my God! Dresses that I knit for the baby of 5 cm, were large. Even the smallest dress!!! So now I’m going to do a whole new line of nano doll!240824062411

Here’s what I found about the company BlueFairy on the Internet.
Bluefairy ball-jointed doll making for many years, with two different lines — mini size (43cm) Baby Fairy lines and tiny size (14cm) Pocket Fairy line. In 2009 Bluefairy closed the store for several months, and again under the same ownership and management as a minor World. Minoru World had previously been a dealer of Bluefairy dolls, as well as selling their own limited edition versions of Bluefairy dolls not available on the regular Bluefairy webshop.In October 2012, Bluefairy announced that Minoru World will close and be merged into the main site Bluefairy, All the dolls, previously only available on the website of Minoru World now available Bluefairy.
In addition to dolls, they offer a lot of additional materials, wigs and clothing, shoes and spare parts.
And most important the size of the doll
Height: 5 cm
Hand length: 1.5 cm
Shoulder width: 1.3 cm
Bust: 3 cm
Waist Circumference: 3 cm
Hip circumference: 3.7 cm
Foot length: 1.5 cm
Legs: 1cm
Circumference of Foot: 0.5 cm
The width of the Hand: 0.7 cm
Neck circumference: 1,5

Creativhook secrets

I often get asked what needles and hooks, I knit. And what kind of yarn I use. You will slightly open the small secrets of my work.
When 2 years ago, I started knitting for dolls, I didn’t have suitable needles and hooks for knitting. Rather, they were, but it is very big size)

The First crocheted dress

 

But as the desire to create clothes for dolls was unbearable, I, of course, tried to crochet from what was at hand.
How funny to see these first. Not because they are poorly made, but because there’s a discrepancy model ( doll) and knitted fabrics. The doll looks like a “Scarecrow” in the garden in a ridiculous hoodie.
So be sure to compare the thickness of the yarn and your model if she’s a doll!
This does not apply to knitting for adults. In this case, it is possible to play any thread and yarn.

And of course, the yarn thickness, in the process, began to purify.  Along with it was completely different rooms of crochet hooks.IMG_3522

And again a small tip. When you conceive of what model and product, try to pick up a crochet hook or knitting needles for each yarn.

In most cases, we make simple models for which you need the right combination of tools and yarn. Unless of course, you planned something special, here your imagination can stretch up to a complete mismatch of both)

“Creativhook” studio

 

I tried to crochet from different types of yarn, trying to find exactly what will allow you to be my gentle and suitable for the size of my dolls. It was a bobbin thread for sewing and yarn for embroidery and many different types of yarn. By the way, the dolls also began to decrease. Now my favorite is the miniature doll measuring only 2 inches.

2 inches dolls

I must admit that, at first, to knit a very thin hook and knitting wasn’t easy! But believe me, if your desire is very strong, there is nothing you can’t scare or stop along the way.   And that’s where I stopped. To create a fancy wardrobe for my dolls I chose thread for embroidery from Madeira company. This is an absolutely amazing thread, the gamma is so huge that it is possible to realize any idea. These threads sometimes I do a little embroidery on the dresses.MH
In these threads, I sometimes add the necessary color line of yarn Guterman.
For creating custom dresses or suits, I’m using the same yarn Madeira, but of a different quality. It’s a thin wool blend yarn for embroidery.MN

 

But the special “diamond” in my Studio, this yarn from the Italian manufacturer Grignasco Merino silk. It’s a terrific yarn that combines Merino and silk. It is thin and elastic, the fabric is excellent and smooth, it didn’t work. Whether it’s knitting needles or a crochet hook.N2

Dolls are very small and therefore any error or, for example, a flat loop will be noticeable on such a tiny canvas. Helps me at work lighted magnifier and these my most essential tools.NH

So, at the end of my post, I want to say that —-  If you want to see your work was high quality and accurate, be sure to make a sample. Test different knitting needles or hooks to achieve the desired density knitting. Swipe wet-heat treatment of the finished sample. Write down all the tools and types of yarn that you get. Believe me, the time that you spend on these simple steps will greatly help you in future work.

Thank you very much again, looked in my workshop. I was wondering if you have any questions. The only way I will be able to help you in your work.

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.

Doll story

Lati Yellow Jia

Perhaps the most popular of the numerous family of Lati dolls,  this is a lati Yellow. Models of this size for a few dolls, in my dollhouse Creativhook, live Gia. This is not the last collection, but she’s very nice. As I wrote in the previous post, its size is 16 cm.
Its sizes allow you to create different outfits styles and designs.
Now many companies offer a huge variety of accessories for dolls. Eyes and wigs, the variety of sign pen, and of course clothes and shoes. For this doll, I have brought several wigs. I really like to watch a new wig changes my doll.  She’s Flirty, gently sweet, and just a bully.
