As many of my friends know I have a collection of 18" dolls. Mainly American Girl ® dolls. I use them as models for my knitting designs.
I was so happy to receive a new American Girl ® doll recently. An American friend sent me her and I was scared, as always when I have dolls arriving, in case she got lost in the post! Such a long trip poor thing closed in a box!
My DD put her on her bedside table. By the way her bedroom is always that tidy! She sure isn't like I was at that age! No clutter. (I hate to admit it but her bedroom is still tidier than mine is now!)
Almost as soon as Grace arrived I changed her clothes to a fresh cotton dress!
As her story is based in Paris I used an Eiffel tower stich pattern and a cotton yarn which is actually called Parigi! Lol! Better than that?
Benita included her book for me and I enjoyed reading it.Yes I confess I still love reading kids' books! I searched a lot on E-Bay to find the 6 books in the Kirsten series when I bought her. Not everyone will ship to Italy and at times the price and postage is too much for me to be able to get them.
I enjoyed the story and will be making other things for her based on that!
Having whipped up the pattern, I then sent it for testing to my wonderful pattern testers
finally today it went live and is available for purchase both on Ravelry and in my Etsy shop.
We also have a cupcake making session planned for the first cool day there is. Grace is a baker in her story after all! I do have some baking things for the dolls I bought a couple of years ago.
I will be sharing other photos of my dolls and the clothes I design for them.
Do you have a doll collection? If so which dolls do you collect? What do you think of my dolls?
