Tuesday, December 29, 2009

Oh I've been busy again!

If anyone was wondering what I do while munching chocolate, drinking wine and watching films over xmas you will find out when my new designs come out next week! I just can't sit with nothing in my hands! I was meant to be having a break and ended up creating a table full of goodies!!

First up will be the eeko bobble hat, my funky new design for Blythe which is crocheted in a beautiful eco, yarn 100% wool in such lovely soft natural colours. It is decorated with reclaimed shell buttons. I will be selling these for $15 each.
Hope you like my new creations :D

Ho Ho Ho

Merry Xmas to you and many thanks for all your custom over the last year! All the elves and pixies at Polly's and Granny Madge send lots of Holiday Goodness and best wishes for a Very Happy 2010!
I will be closing the shop today and having some rest and relaxation with the family (and dreaming up new ideas obviously!) We will be back again after the new year on the 4th January.

Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!

Snuggly Buggly Coat

In addition to the mohair Winter Warmer coats I have a Snuggly Buggly coat made from some gorgeous boucle Noro yarn. This one will be $45 due to the cost of the yarn. Sorry if anyone thought it was the usual price of $30 like the others.
If I work really hard over the next few days I should have a good bunch of things ready. Including coats, anoraks, Mini Madge hats, Strawberry Shortcake dress sets and maybe a little custom cake too :D
Please feel free to ask me any questions.

I am currently working on some more Winter Warmer coats that I will preview on flickr as they are finished. I am not ultra quick at the moment as I am working on some commissions too. The long coats are $30 and the shorter anorak style is $27. I also have some more Mini Madge hats and dress sets if I can find the time :D
If anyone isn't on the mailing list and wants to be please send me your email address and you will be mailed with any details when I list. I can't take anymore commissions at the moment until I have caught up with the ones I have. I so wish I had more hours in the day, I could crochet and stitch and knit and spin FOREVER!

Shop Update

This Friday October 2nd at 5 - 6pm ish UK time I will be listing some new items in the shop.

GRANNY MADGE IS BACK!! October 15th she will be 89!
She was getting a bit bored again so I popped over with a bag of yarn and told her to make a couple of mini Madge hats for the Strawberry Shortcake girls and a couple of scarves for Blythe.......a few days later I get a bag with 23 scarves and 14 hats!!!!!! So I will attempt to photograph all of them in time for the update! The hats also fit Susie Sad eyes nicely and should fit Lati yellow too. The hats are $6.50 each and the scarves $3.50 each (not including postage..see below)

I also have the new Winter Warmer anorak (2 finished so far, 4 more nearly done) and the zip up coat (more to come) The anorak will be $27 and the zip up coat $30 There are also 2 Susie Sad eyes coats up for grabs, these are $25 each.

I have stopped the postage included idea as it was not fair on folk in the UK really paying more than necessary.
As always please feel free to email me with any questions, I'm here to make your dollies happy :D

Hope you like my new banner and labels!

What's new

I am busy designing my 'new look' and some new designs to go with it! I hope to launch it this week but sometimes 'real work' gets in the way and messes up my plans :(
I wanted a simple and more classy logo that I can stick with (instead of my usual flitting from one thing to another like a butterfly!) I hope I can get the new things finished soon and fill the shop with some colourful goodies for your little ones! I am also open to requests now, but please bear in mind I may not be able to do everything asked for.
I am also planning on buying a spinning wheel to create my own yarns too, but that might take a bit of time!! I'll keep you posted!
The studio is tidy for once and I feel much more organized, ready to go into winter prepared for some serious crochet and knitting :D

Friday, September 18, 2009


Today at around 6pm I will be listing a few items in the shop (depending on what gets finished!!)

2 mohair custom Strawberry Shortcake dolls @ $40 each + postage
2 Strawberry Shortcake clothing sets in red @ $22.50 each inc postage

Any questions please ask, I am here to help :)

My day job

Please go have a look at our engineering companies new website! We are in the process of trying to give the business a bit of a boost and the website is part of that new image. You will need sound and look out for me (age 11) in the about us section (look at the 70's!!) We noticed that all engineering company websites made you want to go to sleep they were so boring so we tried to add an amusing touch!! My grandad started the company in 1945 and we are very proud we are still around, we are just trying to keep it that way!!!

Here is my latest custom cake. The doll has been adopted but the outfit is available if anyone is interested. It is $22 including postage. Email me if you are interested at

Strawberry Shortcake customs

I am at present working on some Strawberry Shortcake customs. I managed to buy a job lot at the weekend so I have LOTS of little ones coming over to the Polly Makeover studio!! I am not selling these on etsy but direct to customers so if anyone is interested in one please email me for details. I sell these complete with an outfit made by me.

I like to be fair so I will work in order of who asks first but I won't be taking special commissions for colours etc as I really don't know which dolls will work with what colour hair/outfit until I start making them. I will try to do a good range of colours so that there is plenty to choose from and pics will go on flickr as they get finished.

Prices range from $35 - $50 depending on the doll/condition etc. I am going to have to charge postage on top of this now as postal costs are just a bit too much for me to include :(
