As long as I was not))) But this time I spent at work. At first, I was setting up my new workspace. Laid out on the shelves and boxes of my treasures. How I accumulated a lot of yarn and other Spotswood materials. And all it had to organize and distribute according to importance and usefulness. Now my Desk is located right by the window and all I need is “at hand”.
At the same time, I got new yarn for new dresses. Some I have tried and was pleased with her. I’ll write more about it later in a separate post. And here is the work of the new yarn.The yarn is thin and very soft. Knit from it a pleasure. Here are some works from this yarn.
Usually all the build plans in the beginning of the month, I’m now trying to organize my operation. How I want to have another three pairs of hands and a little more time in the day) Let’s start in order. Last week I went back to working with leather. I thought my dolls needed leather accessories. That’s why I started a small collection of leather skirts.
When I was going through my treasures, I came across a workpiece for new brooches. And something me right in the back pushed…Have to finish it!!!!
I now very rarely make jewelry, and I noticed what must happen something very important that I returned to making jewelry. This signal to me was the opinion of one of my clients who bought one of my “Eye-brooch”. Gift liked very much. I really love these brooches, each brooch is eye turns not similar to the previous one. This time I made three brooches in the form of the eye. I hope they will be a wonderful gift for the modern woman, striving for individuality.
In addition to the brooches in the form of eyes, I make brooches Owls. A symbol of wisdom and longevity. The owl as a totem and as an amulet. About it I already wrote in one of my previous posts. The new Owl was unusual)
And some plans for the month.
To organize all of my miniature dolls. To write a comparative description of each of them.And of course to work on a new Christmas collection…
Thank you all for your visits to my blog. I am very glad that you don’t pass it by.
This is a small post I wrote for my dear clients. Most of my dolls are small dolls with a size of only 2 inches. And I understand that buttoning the buttons on their clothes can cause difficulty, especially if you do not have a magnifying glass.
So let me help you and show you how to do just. We’ll need this tweezers. You can get it from a manicure kit.
Dress up the baby. Gently push the handle into the sleeves and this is what we get.
Now the most important! Take the tweezers and very carefully and gently introducing it into the loop. With tweezers, grab the button and calmly put it in the loop.
And why the photo is a transparent film, and I’ll write a bit later and try to make a video.
Today’s post is just an overview. While I was busy with orders, I have collected a few beautiful outfits for my kids. Here 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.
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.
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.
Thanks for looking at my shop! I will be glad to review!
Very soon my little puppet shop will be the newest stunning collection of petite dresses for smaller dolls with a size of 2 inches.
At the core of this collection is the combination of high-quality wool with embroidery silk.
I like the combination of wool and lustrous silk. Floral embroidery seems more voluminous and contrasts its brilliance with a matte finish wool fabric.
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.
So…..all the attention is on the screen….Thanks for looking at my shop. I will be glad reviews and comments.
Thanks to my favorite clients, I’m becoming a collector of small dolls. Very often I am asked to associate dresses for dolls, Heidi Ott.
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.
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.
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.
