Been so ill the past few days I haven't even been near the computer! Coughing and sneezing a plenty and lots of blankets and hot drinks! Added to my misery we had burst water pipes!

I just wanted to wish all my lovely internet friends a wonderful Xmas and New Year before I dive into the pre-holiday madness! I will not be around much, just checking in now and again, but rest assured I have a little surprise for the New Year which will start it off with lots of smiles I hope :)

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Vintage Strawberry Shortcake cardigan pdf pattern

All finished another pattern available on Ravelry or etsy. This is my own pattern that fits Vintage Strawberry Shortcake dolls. It can be scaled up to fit other dolls too by using different weights of yarn and larger needles. I have made them in 4 ply yarn for Lati yellow and DK yarn for Blythe.

I made a lot of these cardigans for sale and thought it would be nice to share the pattern to let other dolly lovers have a go at making their own.

This is knit on 2mm needles with very fine lace-weight or kid mohair yarn.

If you have any questions about this pattern please do not hesitate to get in touch:

Santa Baby.......

....... slip a little dress under the tree for me!!

Just in time for Xmas I have made a little festive dress to delight your Dollies! Made from pure wool hand-knitted into a short sweater dress that fastens at the back with a vintage glass button. Trimmed with creamy marabou feather trim and tiny sequin flowers.

I have enough supplies to make ten of these dresses so I will take orders on a first come first served basis and make them up as they are ordered rather than making the whole batch.
They are $30 each + postage and if ordered in time I will make sure they are finished and posted before the last Xmas posting date of 10th December.
If you are interested in ordering one please email me: with your paypal address and location (so I can charge the right amount for postage) and I will send you an invoice.

I am also working on a totally new project which will be revealed VERY soon ;) Keep a watch!
