Knit Garter Stitch Dress For American Girl Doll


I have accumulate lots of 4 ply yarns. I can't used them to crochet doll clothes because they are too bulky. I used to knit when I was 13.  I knit sweaters, jumpers and shirts for  my niece.  After 27 years, I forgot how to knit all of them.  I made all those patterns up so hopefully one day they will came back to me.

I found this easy pattern on knitting forum.   The purple and yellow dress used Caron Simply soft yarn.  They turned out so pretty.  But they took so long to make.

This white and pink dress used Red Heart yarn.  That yarn felt like sand paper. My fingers are cracking and peeling from using that yarn.
You can fine the dress tutorial here.  However, because I used different yarn (mine are 4ply) I reduced the number of stitches.  I crochet the hats and purse.  They are super quick to make.

Have a wonderful week!  Stay warm....

Flower in the Vase Note card

Hello Blogger Friends,

Today I have a simple card to share.  The flower vase was made from stampin' Up ornament punch and then embossed.  Using punch as a vase was not my idea.  I had seen it on many SU demonstrator blogs.

That is it for this week.

Until then ...

Have a wonderful week!

Crochet Top For American Girl


I made two different American girl tops from the same pattern.  There are so many nice patterns out there for sale but because I'm not good at reading pattern so I preferred to create my own pattern.  Sorry I don't have it written down. I made them up as I crochet.

I made the first one short and added a flower and a hair band for a summer top.

Then I made the second one longer. Love the way it turned out.  It looks like one of the jacket that I have.   This time a hat to go with the jacket.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful week a head!

Celebrate/2014 Goal


I am back for just a quick post.  I had collected quite a few embossing folders but rarely use them.  Here is a card inspired from google search.

I don't have New Year resolution but I have a goal for 2014.  I wanted to do more craft shows; however, I will be selling only selected items from my creations.  I won't be creating much paper crafts.  Instead I will be crocheting/knitting doll clothes.  I had crochet a few doll clothes during my absent from blogging.  I will share them next time. 

Until then . . . . have a wonderful week a head!
