Here is, finally, a group photograph of all my Bonnie & Pearl dolls! There are two more dolls but I think, I will stop here (in fact, even #5 was an accident, I wasn’t intending to have even 5!). So, here they are (left to right): Tris (Beatrice), Caroline (Catherine), Madeleine (Charlotte), Florence (Olivia), Indira (Sophia). Two dolls with brown eyes. These are my absolute favourites among all Bonnie & Pearl dolls! Florence (Olivia) and Madeleine (Charlotte). Two girls with brown eyes and brown hair but with a different skin tone – Indira (Sophia) and Madeleine (Charlotte). Two brown-haired girls – Madeleine (Charlotte) and Caroline (Catherine). Two girls with blue eyes – Tris (Beatrice) and Caroline (Catherine). And all five girl together again!
I did not intend to buy both of these girls. I just wanted one of them – the brown-eyed beauty, but, I guess, it was my destiny to have both. For I ordered Charlotte but the doll I received turned out to be Catherine. It was clearly an unfortunate mistake …read the rest
Two more Butterfly dresses! This again was a custom order – for Maru and Friends and Kidz’n’Cats dolls. Both dresses have detachable sashes but look just as good without them. They close at the back with a zipper. The dress for Maru and Friends dolls, modelled by my Joanna. The dress …read the rest
Another new dress for Maru and Friends dolls. Modeled by my Gemma. The bodice of the dress is lined, as usual, and the dress closes at the back with a zipper.
A short break from all creativity. Finally, I have taken pictures of my daughters’ Disney Frozen dolls Anna and Elsa – the ones that we bought in Hong Kong Disneyland in December. I must admit that taking photos of them was a challenge. Especially, of Anna who plainly refused to …read the rest
It is truly amazing how quickly and easily I am managing to source various fabrics and accessories for this Outlander project. In almost not time at all I have managed to find fabrics for most of the outfits I have in mind. Here is the impressive array of fabrics for …read the rest
I have got really deeply into the Outlander project and am enjoying every moment of it. Here is another piece of garment that I have just finished. It’s Claire’s shift. Here is one of the two shifts Claire wears in the film. It’s the basic one. There is also a …read the rest
Some more dresses for Kidz’n’Cats dolls that I have recently made (these were a custom order). I added white sashes to these dresses, but not all of them have made it to the pictures! All three dresses are my own design, with a fully lined bodice. All close at the …read the rest
I have finished making 1830s underpinnings for Adele Varens. They will be the foundation for three different dresses which I am planning to make for her. Just to remind you that my Adele is Iplehouse KID Lisa and she is 35 cm tall. I wanted to make her a bit …read the rest
Another new dress that I’ve recently made. I love how well this blue colour suits my Joanna. It really brings out her eyes. The bodice of the dress is lined, as usual, and the dress closes at the back with a zipper. I love this fabric so much that there …read the rest
For the last month or so I have been thoroughly obsessed with the Outlander series – first, the 2014 TV series, then the books. I am currently reading the 2nd one in the series – out of the present 8. But, thankfully, more are to come for it is one …read the rest
Once I determined who my Jamie and Claire Fraser would be, it was time to jump into action. Iplehouse EID Leonard on Superhero body is to be Jamie while Iplehouse EID Carina is going to be Claire. Here are some pictures of the characters from the Outlander TV series 2014. Both …read the rest
Another game that Mattie and Tinka enjoyed together was the skipping rope. Mattie had never done it before, so Tinka decided to teach her how to do it. Hmm, this is tricky!
Continuing with the photos from last summer. Tinka and Mattie loved playing outside. And one of the games they enjoyed was this good old favourite of everyone!
Another small set of last summer’s photos. It’s Mattie (A Girl for All Time Matilda) this time. She is wearing a Poppy top which is actually meant for Maru & friends dolls, but Mattie insisted on trying it on!
I keep on slowly sorting out a pile of photographs from my summer holidays and here is a bunch of photos of Michelle (Kidz’n’Cats Galina). The top and the corduroy trousers were made by my mum.
It took me about 4 years to finally decide to get this doll. I was very curious about yet another “Girl” from a particular country (like American Girl, Australian Girl, etc.). This is a Canadian Girl. And I am really glad I finally took the plunge for she is truly …read the rest
Update 01/02/2015. A change of plans has happened. Having just madly fallen in love with the whole Outlander thing (the TV series and the books) I have finally decided the destiny of Leonard (and Carina, to that matter). He is now called Jamie Fraser and he is indeed from the 18th …read the rest
I have finally got around to showing this girl though I’ve had her for 2 or 3 months already! I have another Australian Girl in my collection, and here is my review of her. I may repeat myself, however, when I talk about this new beauty. So, this is Emily, …read the rest
I have recently changed my Zlata’s wig. (Zlata is a Dianna Effner doll, painted by Geri Uribe) Not sure why I wanted to do it, but I love the new look! The dress was knitted by me quite some time ago from Becky Colvin’s pattern.
And some more photos of Bonnie & Pearl dolls – of my Florence (Olivia) this time. This dress was made by mum for my daughter’s American Girl doll, but it fits Florence well, too.
I haven’t shown my Tris (Bonnie & Pearl doll Beatrice) for a while. I’ve recently taken some photos of her in a dress that I’d made for my new American Girl doll. Not many, but here they are.
