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 Pattern for BELLY BUTTON BABY


This Miniature 1:12 scale knitted outfit began with me wanting to make a matinee jacket for the Sean Pattern....

Then I thought how can I make a gown with dropped points.
So I tried it out on a petticoat, it worked so I am one step closer to a new gown I want to knit.

 I would so like to see a motive in tatting in very fine thread up the center front of this gown or some bullion rose embroidery. 
Maybe even some bead-work...still all in my head.

Even though the texture of the knitted fabric is very fine,  embroidery on knitting is difficult if you want to achieve a perfect finish.
I thought of putting that material  that dissolves in water on the back of the panel before I try the embroidery.


JADE for BELLY BUTTON BABY

Once again a Round Shawl
which is so much easier to drape inside a pram!


The pattern gives a choice of a bonnet with or without frills.
This pattern still needs to be test knitted
