Meet My New Girl

 I'd like to introduce Neelie, my new-to-me Fairyland Pukifee Bonnie.

She's on her way home with me. Squeeee!

I bought her secondhand from NixiPixie and picked her up today. The doll's name was "Neelsie", and she was named after NixiPixie's Aunt Neelie. I've decided to drop the added "s" and go back to just plain "Neelie" which I find easier to pronounce. I think it really suits her too.

The darling little outfit was made by NixiPixie as a going away present. So cute! Check out those microscopic stitches in the sock. 20sts to the INCH! NixiPixie makes outfits like this, and similar, for several sizes of doll including Pukifee, Persons, and Blythe. If you see stock in her shop better snap it up quick as they go FAST! In fact, if you are seriously wanting a set it might be a good idea to subscribe to her Flickr feed so you don't miss out. Her shop is NixiPixiPuddingPie.

Sending Baby Zoe Home

Okay, last three headbands, this time for real.....

1

She's actually going home today....

2

But I took the time last night to make three more headbands for Dollzone Babies....

3

But these ones aren't destined for commissions. These ones are going into my Etsy shop.

It's hard to let her go!

It's hard to let this little cutie go!

bye bye baby bunting

But she really must get home to her caretaker now, so I've bundled her up in her going home outfit. Now to pop her and all of her new wardrobe into the mail.

Bye bye baby bunting.   :-(

Maybe Not Yet?

I said yesterday that the three headbands were my last projects with the Dollzone Christmas Baby.

Well.....maybe not quite yet. While waiting for the owner to pay for the commissioned items I had one more day with little Zoe.

a4234

Another new owner of two tiny Dollzone Babies has been asking if I could also make her doll something.

a4232

With that extra day I was able to squeeze in a few more tiny headbands and another pair of ruffle-bum panties before the little model has to be packed up and sent home.

a4237

These are the items I made for SaraBeara2's little ones. Modelled by the ever adorable Zoe, who belongs to HDoneSix.

The Final Two Items

Zoe's ready to go home now.

blue dendrobium orchid

She enjoyed her time here, but she wants to be home in time for Santa's visit.

Zoe's blue flower

I finished her final two items last night. A blue flowered headband inspired by this photo. And a red Chrysanthemum styled after this picture.

I hope she and her new wardrobe have a safe journey home, back to Ontario.

Ittsy Bittsy Teensy Weensy Headband

I'm crocheting tiny little headbands for 3" long Zoe, the Dollzone Christmas Baby. She'll probably get several in different colours.

 Headband details.

I crocheted the flower on this first one using 3 strands of a 6 strand embroidery floss.

Tiny fashionista.

The headband itself is only about the size of a thumb ring and was crocheted using weaver's perle cotton and a 1 mm hook.

The tiny little dress is done. The Dollzone Christmas Baby will be heading home soon. I just have a couple of flowered headbands to make for her first.

Rose

The outfit I was making, and blogged about earlier, is now complete. Here it is being modelled by Rose, the rightful owner. She is Kristo's Fairyland Minifee Luka.

Corset for Rose

The slouchy beret in hand dyed, handspun camel/silk was crocheted without a pattern, just trying it on for fit now and then.

Rose's outfit

The corset and skirt were made from men's shirts I picked up at a thrift store. The shirt I used for the corset had a soft, peached finish to it that made a very nice doll-scale velvet like fabric. I hand embroidered the flowering vines. The skirt was made from the other two men's shirts. LOTS of fabric left over of course, which is a good thing because Morganna would like a skirt too!

Rose

Then I used a t-shirt purchased at Micheals to make the detached sleeves and the tights. Poor Rose had to go home in her stocking feet though. Shannon was not about to give up those boots for more than just a quick photo session.

Rawrrrrrr!

 I crocheted Bobby a new hat.

Bobby the Monster

Now he wants someone to come over to play "Monsters".

"Wanna play?"

His sister, Becky, is away at Ban's Boutique getting a new faceup.

"Rawrrr"

He's feeling a little lonely.

Pretending

Won't you spend a little time with him?

Baby Bunny

Came here for the cute? Well, do I have the cute!

Baby Bunny

This is the latest piece for the Dollzone Christmas Baby commission I'm working on.

Itty Bitty Bunny

It's a custom designed, itty, bitty, cashmere bunny hat for the 3" resin doll owned by HDoneSix.

Bunny Ears

A few more things to make and then she'll be on her way back home to her caretaker.

Ruffle-Bum

 I had a lot of fun doing these newest additions to the Dollzone Christmas Baby Layette.

Dollzone Baby, Zoe

I totally improvised the little crocheted soaker panties and booties.

Ruffly Butt

I'm very pleased with the way they turned out.

Where's that thumb?

I hope that HDoneSix, little baby Zoe's caretaker, likes the result.

contented

I have a few more novelty hats to do and then little Zoe will be going back home.

Work in Progress

I still have a few more items to add to this outfit, but the corset and the skirt are complete.

Morganna

I made the corset to fit "small bust" Minifees, so this time Morganna gets to model it. Panalaya and Shannon are both "large bust".

Work in progress.

It looks so nice on Morganna that she will have a hard time letting it go!
