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.

1:12th Scale Miniatures

I gave myself space yesterday to make a dress for dear Miss Mouse
 A PROTOTYPE at this stage.

What Fun it turned out to be.

Having been introduced to Vera de Muis so many years ago
I loved the idea of a mouse dressed in real clothes.

My friend Ana has made the most delightful mouse doll. 
I call her Miss Mouse.

Ana's ability to make the finest quality of miniature critters and 
teddies is astounding. 

See one of her creations  which is on Ebay at the moment.

Item number:290615686059
Her seller name is anabear555

Her ability to constantly push herself to greater heights, 
and to be innovative is only to be admired.

Miss Mouse has arms and legs that move!

Looking through my photograph albums 
I managed to find the photograph of the first  mouse 
I made and dressed.

It was in 2004, seems hard to believe,  how time flies!
I sold her on Ebay
I realize now that I called that first little mouse, 
Miss Mouse as well.

Her outfit was knitted in DMC 80 at the time, 
ones taste and quality does change  and improve over the years. 

Believe me when I say, I love shoes.... and so does Miss Mouse.



  1. Sharon.. How adorable and how very beautiful!!! Your work continues to blow me away.

    My mother was very good at knitting. Sadly in her day all there was was that nasty Red Heart yarn. She would have loved and been able to knit the patterns you create. I am kicking myself for not letting her teach me how to do it now.

  2. Sharon, your creations in knitting look so fragile and give a character such an innocent look, doesn't matter if it is a baby, or a mouse, or if it is just laying down on a bed. Beyond the imagination!

  3. Oh this is so beautiful and the mouse is so cute.

  4. A precious work is quite precious .............. a kiss.

  5. Ambas son adorables y perfectamente vestidas!
    Muchos abrazos

  6. Thank you so much ...that is such a very nice compliment!

    These little furry creatures in their knitted finery are too wonderful ... now the imagination sees a whole house of them all running about in wee stylish outfits ... aaarrrgggghh ... not a mousie boutique as well ... ! Will the possibilities never cease? Wait ... what about robins and hedgehogs in knitted jumpers and pinafores? I can't wait to see what you come up with next!
