Those came out really cute!

I don't have young kids anymore either. I've made a lot of kids stuff for charity for that very reason. It's a worthwhile cause and I enjoyed doing it, but you never get to see your work or any joy it might bring. ;) Fortunately I have a couple friends having babies so I was able to make a few baby things for known babies! :lol:

Very nice!! I haven't made many doll things. I don't know why not, it looks like a lot of fun. I like both sets, but particularly the red and white dress. It looks Swiss, like Heidi ought to have it on. Good work.

The name of the pattern for the red dress is Heidi.It's from an old beehive pattern book.
I will probably donate the dolls and their clothes to charity,if I can find one that takes used dolls.I buy them at yard sales and clean them up...I just discovered loads of sites about restoring dolls and making the clothes must feed my inner child or something 'cos I love doing it LOL

How cute. Well done. I agree with you that it's fun to make small items, they still require skill and different techniques, yet don't have so much knitting.

I just LOVE the red set. Simply gorgeous and well worth the ribbon! You should be very proud of that set. I sent you a private message!

Those are adorable! Maybe you could raffel them off at a church auction or something? Super cute!

I love garage sales, what sites do you use to 'restore' the dolls? PM me if you'd like, or put 'em on here. tia.

I love those doll clothes! :heart: You did a wonderful job...

Thanks for the sites and you could try the children's wing at your local hospital or a children's hospital, I've heard they are always in need of toys.

They are really cute. I think I have that old pattern book, so I must look for it. I am planning to make doll clothes for my dgd but at the moment she prefers her dolls naked.

I think that is just nosiness. Most children just want to strip the doll to see what is under the clothing, at least most I have ever met do.

So cute! I need to know the pattern for the pink and white hat - what's it called?

The pattern is from an old Patons Beehive book called "Just for Dolls" and the name of this particular one is "Jack and Jill"
