Returning to knitting after so many years I'm back to square 1. But the internet has changed everything!! This is so much more fun. And I'm so grateful for all the helpful people out there
I'm trying to knit clothes for my old dolls and teddy bear. I have one 18-inch composition doll (she's been wearing the same "bridal dress" for about 60 years lol - although I don't think it was her original outfit), a small baby doll with the bisque head and papier mache body, and my old teddy bear my grandmother gave me when I was 4.
The bear is pretty fragile, so I need designs that don't stress her fur or stringing when I put them on or take them off. I couldn't find any patterns that'd actually work, but they give me ideas, and help me learn to shape armholes and necklines etc -
I've done 3 dresses, pics below (I hope) - the red one was my first attempt - it turned out to be just kind of a big red bag with glitter, but it was passable as a Christmas dress. Fortunately, they're in a little cabinet with glass doors, so nobody can see much detail
Thanks for looking
it's really fun to have someone to share knitting with!
