Needle Cases for Sale

I recently made a pretty needle case and into it placed a number of colourful round headed pins.  I find these pins invaluable when making knitted dolls and use them in a variety of ways. I decided other doll knitters might also find them useful and so I made six pretty needle cases and placed a collection of pins into each. If you would like one of these you can see them illustrated below.


Each needle case is made from Liberty Tana Lawn. One floral design is used for the outside and a contrasting one for the inside. I've decorated the front of each with one of my Dollytime happy faces. The needle cases measure 5 inches x 4.5 inches (12cm x 11cm) and have a soft interlining. The inside leaves are felt. Each case contains 14 colourful round headed pins (7 x 3 inches long and 7 x 1.5 inches long). Accompanying each needle case is a leaflet with suggestions on how the pins can be used when making knitted dolls. Please note - the scissors in the photos are not included.

Only available to UK buyers, each needle case with 14 pins costs £9.65 plus UK 1st class postage £1.00.

TOTAL £10.65. Payment by Paypal please. I will mail a needle case to the address registered with Paypal at the checkout.

Lavender Sachet Dolls

Greeting friends. I'm just popping in to let you know about a FREE knitting pattern I have created exclusively for LoveKnitting.


These 4 little dolls measure just 10cm (4in) and inside each is a sachet of sweetly scented lavender. They can be attached to a length of ribbon and placed on hangers in your wardrobe or amongst linen in drawers and cupboards.


To make them I used a combination of double knitting yarn in mauves, purples, lime green and white. Shown here are the lovely Paintbox yarns that used (they are available from  LoveKnitting - more details on the pattern).


You will of course require tiny sachets of lavender which are easy to make (detals in the pattern). Dried lavender is easily available from online outlets and a teaspoonful is all that is required for each doll. A 10gm bag will provide you with approximately 7 teaspoons of dried lavender.


If you'd like to knit the little dolls the FREE pattern can be downloaded from the LoveKnitting website . You can also purchase the Paintbox yarn from the same website if required.

Have fun and happy knitting x

New Year Greetings

Greetings Friends


2016 was a busy year for patterns and I created several new ones which I know many of you have been busy knitting. My family of dolls and bunnies is set to grow during 2017 and I already have ideas which I'm keen to start working on. Meanwhile, if you want to contact me or find out about my latest patterns you can find us all having fun at Dollytime on Facebook. 

Best wishes from us all x

NEW - Little Angels for Christmas

Just popping in to tell you about another new pattern. It's been a busy autumn so far but this will definitely be my last pattern for 2016. Needles to say I'm already making plans for something a bit different in 2017.
 
Let me introduce you to four Little Angels

 
These cuties are only 10cm (4in) tall and so the perfect size to hang on your Christmas tree. They are quick and easy to make and perfect for utilising all those odds and ends of yarn left over from other projects. They are knitted with double knitting yarn on 2.75mm needles (USA yarn - light-worsted/Australia - 8 ply). If you'd like the pattern you'll find it in my Etsy shop (it should be available from Ravelry and LoveKnitting by tomorrow).
 
Little Angels pattern can be found HERE
 
Happy Angel knitting everyone x

More NEW faces.

Greetings friends. I'm popping in to tell you about some new little dolls that have popped into Dollytime recently. Several of you will have already seen them but if you haven't, then let me introduce them to you

The first is Dolly Rose. Measuring just 20cm (8in) she's soft and cuddly and just the right size for little girls to hold and cuddle.

 
Dolly Rose has two different dresses to wear. One has an easy to knit slip stitch pattern and the other has a pretty rosebud design. As you can see, Dolly Rose loves her tiny doll (dolly pattern included).

The second little girl is a cutie who loves Christmas. Her name is Holly Berry. She has a pretty dress with a holly pattern on the skirt and a warm hat with a pom-pom. Holly Berry loves her teddy and takes him everywhere (teddy pattern is included).
 
 
 
Dolly Rose and Holly Berry are good friends.
 
 


Last but not least let me introduce you to a busy little lady named Granny Pearl.



Granny measures 17cm (7in). She carries her bag wherever she goes as it always contains her latest knitting project.

 
Granny Pearl hopes you are all currently having fun with your own knitting projects.
 
 
The knitting patterns for Dolly Rose, Holly Berry and Granny Pearl can be found in my shops on Etsy, Ravelry and LoveKnitting.

You can find regular updates about the Dollytime dollies and their friends on Facebook.

Happy knitting everyone.
