Dolls for sale

If you want a doll, now is the time to get one. I don’t make them often, so having this number of dolls in the shop at one time is a one off. Oh and did I say I’m selling the older dolls for a very low price of £20 each? Yep, thats insane, but the dolls need homes, I can’t keep them all.

Jobs for the girls

There’s a popular series of Barbie dolls called ‘I want to be…’, all based on careers for girls to aspire to be. It where the astronaut and teacher Barbie dolls fit. I was thinking about these Barbie dolls some time ago and wondering whether the idea of a career doll is useful to a child’sContinue reading “Jobs for the girls”

The Elevator Pitch – EPY week 3

An elevator pitch is a short description of what your business is about, supposedly short enough to say in the time a lift goes to the next floor

Bang Bang

When I made the cowboy outfit for MLCD (My little crochet doll) I pondered whether it was right. Should I be making dolls that typically carry guns?

When I grow up…

D’you remember when you were a kid, being asked what you wanted to be when you were older? I wanted to be a Salvation Army officer. Failing that, any job that paid me to travel the world. I didn’t get to do my first choice and although I’m writing this on the night coach toContinue reading “When I grow up…”

Today I was back at Uni for a preview of the fourth year students final work.

My Little Crochet Doll – Mermaid

There are a lot of mermaid dolls out there at the moment, most of which have the tail sewn as part of the body. This pattern has a removable tail, so just like the little mermaid, you can remove it when your doll wants to have legs. It’s made from Sirdar’s Giselle yarn. Normally IContinue reading “My Little Crochet Doll – Mermaid”
