Teeny Tiny Doll - Christiene

This is the first fabric doll that I made. I made it for a gift, but I sold it instead. I started it on July 26 in 2014 and ended on August 10, 2014. The reason I decided to make a doll is because I love Tildas very much. I saw a Tilda once but I regret I had not bought it. It had an amazing embroidered apron, a beautiful dress and hat. I have never seen another one so beautiful like that. Maybe I am going to try making another teeny tiny doll with a embroidered apron. I have to be inspired! The most difficult things to make were really the dress and her hair. I used everything I had at home. I hope you like Christiene.

I made this blog to practice writing because I am studying for an examination. The thing is that I have made new friends here and have learned so much reading the posts. This is a great time!

I will try to post more often.

Cheers, Sandra

  2. She's a little sweetie. Love her smile. You've made such a good job. It's lovely having a hobby. I taught myself how to crochet (through you tube) and am making a blanket (which I will probably finish by next Christmas)

    1. Thank you Molly! Maybe I try again when I will be inspired.I love crafts very much and I give my works to friends. Crochet is a beautiful work. I don't make crochet anymore because of my eyes, but I don't understand why knitting doesn't hurt them. I cannot wait to see your crochet blanket. I'm making a knitting square blanket, which will take longer to finish it.

      Cheers, Sandra

    1. Thank you Linda! I forgot to tell to Linda that my first doll was called Linda! Linda is a Portuguese name that means beautiful. Thank you for the good wishes. I have to deal with my nervousness firstly.

    1. Thank you Autumn! This doll is good for beginners. I think it is difficult to make her tiny clothes though. If you want to make one and have any doubts feel free to ask me.
