About Me

My photo
IMAGINATION IS THE EYE OF THE SOUL Joseph Joubert. I am a mother of four...I still remember the smile that refused to go away for weeks after our daughters birth. To have a little girl appear after three sons seemed such a miracle. I have always enjoyed My Doll World, sharing it with Lara when she was little. Today I design knitted outfits for miniature dolls and enjoy every minute of it. The fact that the outfits are removable is what makes it so special for me. Using ever finer threads has opened so many MINIATURE DESIGN opportunities.

Patterns 7 1/2" Riley

Pearl for Riley
One of my most favorite little dolls is "Contempo Riley" by Doll Artist Helen Kish.
I made this outfit for her as I wanted a Raggedy Anne look alike to display her with all my gollies.

She is the perfect size to be able "to play" with all my 1:12th scale collection. So one can have such fun making up displays. She also reminds me of my surrogate grand daughter Grace.

Grace just loves the camera she was modeling all the rings that came with the seven dwarfs.
Did you notice the rug she is standing on I have to make a pattern for a petitpoint rug. I think the colours are perfect for my dolls house. Rein bought this rug in the middle east about 40 years ago.

This design is called Clair for Riley

Rita for Riley

Still on a learning curve with blogging so I have to upload Photographs before I start a post....we will get better
PS all the little fimo acessories are made by my friends Manda Theart and Ana Esteves.
Manda has just brought out her first book...that's another post

  2. Goede morgen Sharon, wat is dit ook weer mooi, zijn hier al patronen van ? Een mooie dag en groeten uit Holland Els van Zijl

  3. I love my little Riley too! Don't really collect dolls, but couldn't resist the blond with the braids because she looks just like my oldest granddaughter.
    I will order her a sweater, as soon as I get all the 1:12th miniature things I need from you marked off my list ... may take till the end of days, but I'll keep pluggin' along. You have magic in your needle fingers!

  4. I'd love to purchase the three Riley patterns are they still for sale if you could let me know I could paypal.
    Thanks so much Lorraine
