Doll story

Miniature embroidery

I create dresses for dolls. And I really wanted to use embroidery to decorate small dresses. The doll is my most obedient models and dressing them is a lot of fun. Any of them can be very beautiful in the fancy dress.
I usually crochet a simple pattern. This method of knitting in combination with a very fine hook, gives a wonderful canvas.

In the last post, I wrote about cross-stitch.  And here is what I chose to decorate the outfits of the residents of my Dolls countries. Such a field for inspiration and creativity. When a knitted cloth blooms little flowers. Winter is eternal and spring is breathing down her neck, in spite of frosts and blizzards. Therefore, in order to bring spring, I’ve made a few dresses with embroidery.

In this baby I fell in love at first sight, seeing him so small in a big lot on eBay. Lot didn’t break, and the whole merry company of 5 dolls together went to me.
When they arrived, I did not regret about his discovery and purchase. All 5 dolls have been charming and baskets that were in the package also came in handy.
The kid was amazing and magical. This miracle growth of only 5 cm ( 2inches)7

The country of origin, as was evident from the inscription on the back Germany. Made of thin plastic. He called celluloid. Very fragile and weightless. This material, along with porcelain was very popular in the years 60-70. Arms and legs are connected by rubber bands inside a small calf. Face charming and well-drawn.

My stories

Olga

Hello, I am Olga. I am from Russia.

I was born in Severomorsk, where he served in the Navy, my father. Later he moved to Saint Petersburg, where I live now. Petersburg for me, the most favorite city, the eternal source of inspiration and admiration of cultural heritage.

“I from early childhood, as far as I can remember, and the stories of my mother, engaged in various kinds of needlework. Basically, it is, of course, was knitting. Thanks to my grandmother who showed me the basics and taught to hold knitting needles and a crochet hook. So it seems to me now that I knit all my life.”

How it all began
Starting in 2014, knitting from a hobby to a job and acquired the name of “Creativhook”.
I well remember that important day when I realized that the doll wardrobe is what I would like to do is always: “Returning from work, I saw an elderly woman, who sold on a small tray, like a doll. Maybe I was a bit sorry for the woman, but maybe my opinion was interested in the babydoll face. It was so nice that I just unbearably wanted to take her home! She stood on the tray and patiently waited when I will pay attention  frankly, for many of my friends such a sharp reversal in this topic came as a surprise. Because I used to make jewelry, but interest in it is beginning to fade. And here, as inspiration! – I finally realized that the little outfits for the dolls – that’s exactly what I wanted to do!”

Now, when my hobby for almost 2 years, my work is all the more interesting to fans and collectors of dolls. Who wouldn’t want to dress your baby in clothes? By the way, to some extent, and I became a collector, that doll’s wardrobes were not bound “by eye”, and had pinpoint accuracy. Of course, to buy all the dolls impossible, but the most interesting is already settled in my collection. They are my treasure and source of inspiration. And with them, I will introduce you to my blog.

Doll story

Vintage story of disguise.

Vintage dolls have their own stories, and we have only to guess about their lives. We have come up with and think up.

I love vintage dolls, I write them stories and decorate them according to these stories). In my collection, there are a couple of vintage dolls marked Germany. That’s about them in my story. I came across them on Ebay and couldn’t not  to buy it. They were in the Bavarian national costumes and badly battered. The couple was washed and stripped. It was necessary to create the outfits and the story. She was born unexpectedly quickly. Looking at the doll man, I clearly introduced him as the captain or perhaps the boatswain, who strikes the bell and announces the departure of the ship or Vice versa on arrival at the port. So the idea was born and gradually rolled… Outfit the little captain was created.

The outfit was very ceremonial. Bright red jacket with epaulets and a medal, dark blue pants and a cap with a badge. He stood on the pier and hit the bell. But by chance, our brave captain saw her. She walked down the pier in a lovely dress sea waves and Flirty with Jack. And as the song goes… And fell in love with  a boy))))

A few days later they were married, for such a solemn event, Gretchen dressed in a national costume and became even more beautiful, so that battered the captain removed her hat)))

In the first publication, I wrote about the doll 4 inches. I am very glad that I can show all my works and Hobbies. Following my discovery of steel miniature babies. Stumbled on them, I fell in love and fantasy began to play incessantly. They are so cute and soft, and so comfortable to lie on the palm that is not possible not to fall in love with them. First I knit just dresses, blouses and pants. Then came the inspiration and the outfits have become thematic. In working with these babies I use a very tiny hook and fine wool for embroidery. The course is everything I accumulated in my entire creative life) Beads and ribbons, lace and cloth.
