Giveaway ;)

Fritzi has been my favourite baby style doll but for some reason she's still here with me. I didn't refresh her listing or reduce her price because she is dear to me - and in the back of my mind I kept trying to figure out what to do with her...

So, as we're soon leaving for our holidays where we're going to visit the city our daughter was born I thought this is the perfect time for a give-a-way. Please feel free to share or keep it to yourself ;)

If you would like to give Fritzi a loving home, please contact under this post. I only ask that you participate because you love Fritzi, not mainly because she's a free doll...

Larissa - a special girl

Larissa is a very special girl I'm working on at the moment. She has some imperfections but somehow the dolls I love the most always do. I need to stress she's not a boo boo doll - she will not fall apart or anything. And of course she considers herself perfect, including the hair that keeps sticking up no matter what ;)
I thought about keeping her because she's very dear to me, but my daughter insists she wants a blond doll...
So Larissa will be available in a special way - I'm still thinking about how.

She's a very spirited, wild doll. As soon as all her clothes are done I will post more pictures and also show you her little blemishes. By then I should know more about how she will be for sale.

Trying out new patterns

Some of you know I always make the pattern up as I knit. I do write down 2 to three numbers as a guideline but then I just go and see what I like and what I think suits the doll I'm knitting for.
Of course I lose lots of time trying an item on, starting over, frogging half of a top but somehow that seems to be how I love to work. I love the feeling of not having to produce something right away but to just go with it and do what I feel like. Of course it's even better when something turns out cuter than what I first had in mind because I changed my mind about the whole garment about 5 times while knitting ;)

Hope you like it too!

And the second redhead ;)

My trial run with wefts was a lot of work but I figured having learned so much it would be sad to not make more - plus I love the end result so much...
So here's the girl I'm working on at the moment. She's a custom so is already promised to someone ;)

Since I took this picture she's got a body and I'm currently working on her clothes...

Zora - my first wefted doll

Zora is my first wefted doll. I'm very happy with how she turned out and more wefted dolls will definitely happen ;)
Today Zora will be leaving for her new home - we wish her a nice journey!

Leni - a real summer girl

I'm happy to introduce Leni (she's called Elena but after cutting her hair for summer she told me she wants to be called Leni). She's been on the back burner for a while as I wasn't sure about what hair she would like. So I asked my daughter and this is the result!

Leni insists that it's too hot for clothes so she'll stay on a bit until I can convince her ;) Stay tuned...

Wish List

There have been a few requests for custom dolls and I've been thinking about how I would like to work in the future a lot.

As I'm not making a doll a week it's difficult for me to find a good time frame. I love to work on my dolls when I truly want to and not because I feel under pressure to meet a deadline. 

So I felt I will be starting a Wish List. People who would like to own a specific doll from me can be added to this list. Whenever I have the time I will just contact the first person on the list and see if they are still interested (as some time might have gone by since they were added) and talk about the details. When we agree to work together this will turn into a custom doll with a non refundable deposit and half the price due immediately so I can start working and the rest on completion of the doll ;) 
So if you're interested to be on this wish list, please comment on the post on my facebook page or send me pm on facebook...
