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.

Miniature Knitting Patterns for the Nursery

Moonlight Bay was especially fun to design....I just kept on adding bits.
I was spending the weekend at my friend Jacquie ...this is how it went 
"What do you think another frill "
"Yes another frill"
"Do you think another frill"
"Yes another frill"
Luckily I was only there for 2 days

 Moonlight Bay available in Dutch and English

The first frill around the hood section was to give a mock turned back hood effect then two more were added each slightly different in length.
There is a pillow cover, a shawl, and a blanket.
I find having two colours in a design seems to enhance the design somehow
The crib itself is made out of cardboard and paper, then covered in fabric.

Frills of Crib attached to Moses basket with ribbons

When I got home from the weekend I put all those frills onto a Moses Basket that a friend had made for me.....I think it works perfectly
