Miniature dolls. How did I start my passion for dolls.

Five years ago I started my passion for miniature knitting for dolls.  During this time, my collection of dolls became large.

I recently met a classmate I haven’t seen in fifteen years. After joyful hugs and questions about life, I started talking about who does what. I said I was doing puppet clothes) She was surprised and asked how it all started.

 

Start of my dollhouse dolls collection.

A doll’s hobby started in 2014. I was on my way home from work tired and isolated, at the time I was working in a mini-hotel. Night shifts were sometimes restless) On the sidewalk, the old lady was selling a simple scarf and I noticed a little doll on her table. At that time, my interests were related to jewelry and dolls, let alone doll clothes. I bought a doll, washed it, combed it, and put it on the shelf. Six months later, I decided to finally put it on. That’s how my current class began. Here she is my first doll Ninotchka. After Ninotchka appeared our domestic rubber doll.

The first experience of knitting miniature clothes.

Now I think he’s the one who started his passion for miniature puppet clothes. The first clothes now seem a little funny and rude to me. I was knitting out of everything that was in my knitting vault. And that’s why the outfits were rude. Now I have good fine yarn and thin metal hooks and needles in my arsenal. The dress turns out to be gentle and soft. I found miniature buttons for small dresses and learned how to embroider miniature flowers on them.

Let’s compare what I did in 2014, what kind of clothes for miniature dolls I offered my clients, and what I offer them now.

Miniature embroidery pillows.

Miniature embroidery is the embroidery of miniature patterns on a very thin canvas, cotton canvas, or silk canvas. The main form of stitch used is small points.

My experience in such handicrafts is still very small, but it gives me great pleasure. The tiny thing has something nice, it has all the details and shape of a bigger piece.
I love watching it come to life before my eyes!
