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.

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


Examples of little flowers



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.



And there was a solemn moment, the sweater is ready. I don’t sew very well, so the skirt is a little funny))) I think it has turned out beautifully. What do you think?1862


My dear Julia.

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.

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.

In one of my future posts, I’ll tell you about this amazing Russian beauty.

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.

My doll helping me



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.

Leather Cute Trinkets

I intended this blog as a series of small stories about my Hobbies and my passion for different kinds of needlework. The study of each of them, in one way or another, helped me to understand, what interests me the most. Difficult to stop on something one. And wanted to find an area to allow them all to merge into one. And this opportunity has finally found the real embodiment. It’s a doll.

Miniature bag for Lati white


There fully I took all my skills to work with beads and yarn, crochet and knitting, and of course working with leather.
It began accidentally, even though I thought about it for a long time. I watched master classes and read about different techniques working with leather. And decided to start to try to do little things to store Souvenirs or useful things.9ec3e7e2a1a07f39697c80b296d802dd
So, this post will be dedicated to miniature pouches their leather.
Every woman keeps in her purse a lot of little things. Remember how in the childhood we loved to play “secrets” of the “secrets” I came up to a little sewing keepers.45d4198d4ac41deb2886da88cf04335f17d0f9ca5a36e70c7a94d3680b5745b0beb61e090b241f8ab8d91e0af64f71444260a40bc015addeb0ceefbae71b9bcf

Sewing leather was not an easy task, but gradually I began to receive here such nice things.
Thanks to my friend Natalia Eliseeva, I became the owner of a huge number of scraps the finest leather. Sew a simple seam seemed a little boring, and in turn went to beads and beads. It totally changed the mood of the finished products. They were unusual to store your lovely heart trinkets even more enjoyable. What do you think?2913a9f3e314aa49357884e5ccc212d2
The next step was the idea of wearing such custodian for the neck on a beautiful chain and the use of lace for decoration.cb3d189b0315f887f7ccde7e3151be9a49f379c882daa16e5dab2ebeb7725ab76cd16177b1cfe5786b69b0de1327153e
It turned out that such pouches. Imagine that you came to the salon to do a manicure….it is in this pouch you can put rings, while the wizard deals with your hands.9e831d5b6f71b57bc76e9f14f4c56d85

“Everything new is well forgotten old” is the phrase that perfectly describes the cycle of fashion, and next return the brooch to the podium. Once our grandmothers adorned their outfits with this accessory, and now the modern fashionista can’t imagine a completed suit without the brooches.
And that I can help her with presenting the assortment of my work. Because I really love the brooches.il_340x270.1142774545_3w46

Actually, the brooch is not a simple accessory, and to decorate them yourself, sometimes you need to be elegant, how much daring and not be afraid to experiment with this decoration.

Little collection of brooches in form of dress


The brooch is one of the few accessories that can be used with any outfit, a brooch, you can decorate a t-shirt and wedding dress, evening dress and business suit and if correctly to pick up, everywhere it is appropriate.

Now, of course, nobody uses brooch as a transmission of information ( and sorry) as it was in ancient times. But, nevertheless, about the choice consciously try to impress others by your dressing.image

More soft floral a-line flora will tell others about a pleasant and gentle nature, a matter now ska brooch with sharp corners and straight lines will talk about a more rigid and purposeful character, but the vintage brooch will tell others that before them, the romantic lover of fashion. By the way, largely due to the fact that vintage fashion is conquering the catwalks, the brooch is becoming more popular. Yes, and it is difficult to imagine a full women’s outfit without the original women’s jewelry.

By the way, the brooch is one of the few accessories that is Central to the decoration of the outfit. Once Coco Chanel said a woman should wear a minimum of the jewelry-a brooch, a nice watch or bracelet, and one ring, and this will be enough for the ideal. 20719e8a936daa58f0b662b9e9c9435d

To obscure the pin very easily, but it is not worth doing – then it is better to abandon this accessory for true gourmets. Much more interesting on the contrary: all of the decorations to choose only the brooch, which will emphasize necessary details. The brooch on the neck will provide the person on the shoulder will accentuate the neckline, on the sleeve show thin wrist, the hat will highlight the hairstyle.

The brooch is a universal accessory that can liven up a favorite sweater or a simple dress.

And more often matched to the shape of the nose of shoes and a handbag.
However, in recent years the basic principles of wearing brooches, laid down in the middle ages, are virtually nonexistent – is much more important than your own sense of style.
Moreover, now the choice is huge: fabric and leather, matte and brilliant brooches of very different textures can decorate any outfit.il_570xN.1073144458_92r0

If your clothing is embroidered or sequined – from brooches to refuse.
If the dress is simple, concise and simply – brooch will be the best addition to it will emphasize the style and the individual
Elegant and stylish is considered a classic brooch pinned to the lapel. Choosing a model for a jacket, you need to remember proportions. On the wide mesh large lapel decoration, on a narrow – smaller versions.pi5

When the cold weather we are starting to hide in warm coats and stoles. And here we necessarily will help the brooch is large and bright. Because almost all of the winter clothes are not bright.il_570xN.1119731953_2htt

Paisley, attracts and surprises.

It seems that the famous “Indian cucumber” as the pattern is now experiencing a new round of popularity — based on it really is very a well-known brand has managed to produce completely different forms of clothing.The history of the origin of the pattern.1039633_uzor-cvetnoii


Paisley, Indian cucumber, or, if not accurately, booth — the pattern is very ancient. Probably the first time he appeared in the Sassanid Empire, an ancient state, from 224 to 651 ad, located on the territory of modern Iraq and Iran. Thanks to trade relations fabric with this pattern spread throughout Central Asia and even in India and Africa. In Europe, the same “cucumber” came from India in the XVII century due to the British colonists. The demand for exotic Indian cloth was so high that enterprising Europeans began to weave fabric with “cucumber” themselves. A small Scottish town Paisley, in General, is fully devoted all resources to the production of cloth in the Indian style and thus remained for centuries — but as the name of the pattern.In fact, what really is Paisley, no consensus. According to one version, this floral motif, combined with the silhouette of a cypress tree, a symbol of life in Zoroastrianism. Another version of the origin of stylized flames also symbolizes life. Perhaps the origin of cashew nuts, which were a symbol of fertility. In India, it is widely believed that “cucumbers” represent the seeds of the mango tree. In any case, what the theory did not take — it is about life and fertility.il_fullxfull-26154903

The first popular product with the Paisley pattern in Europe was cashmere shawls from the Indian region of Kashmir. They were extremely expensive, and afford only wealthy aristocrats. In the early nineteenth century, Scottish masters learned to weave “cucumbers” on jacquard looms and shawls with Paisley became more a mass product. However, they were not cashmere, but lambswool or silk and flowers were much less than the authentic Indian product.A little later start to Paisley print on cotton, and the pattern ceases to be a luxury, and by the 1870s, the “cucumbers” not exactly out of fashion, but rather move to the area every day.Paisley

.Now Paisley is experiencing a new heyday.
Given the Paisley on the carpet during the fashion shows this year, we can assume that the summer will see a new wave of enthusiasm “cucumber”. In the end, not everyone can wear camo.96bb0a48cd26a3f9c46c18e78d965722

I’ve always loved this picture. And even a lot has been associated with such a marvelous motif. But here came the hands and the jewelry. A small collection of jewelry in the form of “Indian pickle” Starts with two very coloristic pendants. The great thing that this picture is just perfect for me. I don’t really like the monochrome in decoration, I prefer her in clothes. So all my jewelry is so bright. So..62658_60063145_600
