New Dolls!

For my birthday my sister gave three Strawberry Shortcake dolls. After my sister got her little dollies she got four more, three were for me and the other one for her.  I also got a 15” Strawberry Shortcake doll just for fun.  Don’t get me wrong I still like my other dolls, Barbie, Jade (Bratzillaz) and Winx but there is something about these Strawberry Shortcake dolls that make me smile.

So, for the past week I have been trying to make tiny clothes for my new adorable friends.  I was inspired by http://cindyricedesigns.wordpress.com/ and http://byhookbyhand.blogspot.com/ among others.

The pattern I used was for a Littlest Petshop Blythe doll.  I only had white crochet thread size #10 and I use a size 7 hook, it was a little big on the chest but with a few stitches gone it was perfect.  After the first dress my sister asked me to make her doll pantaloons, this time I use a pattern from http://byhookbyhand.blogspot.com/ but instead of 40 I work on 30 stitches and for the top I use the same Blythe pattern adding a few more stitches and row at the bottom.

For now I am sticking with crochet but maybe in the coming days I will try to sew tiny clothes again.

About foolishlife

Words cannot describe what we are. We are a little bit complicated to explain. All we can say about ourselves is that we live a foolish life. EkkE-Mekka, we are sister and Ed is our little nephew. The three of us are always finding new ways to pass the time. We cosplay, write, sew, draw, do crafts, chase the ice cream man and a whole lot of other things. So, we hope you enjoy reading about our silly adventures.
