My first Sasha Morgenthaler Studio doll

Well, here is the special doll arrived last week in our Sasha's family :-)
She is far from perfect, but she is the first Studio doll to see in person, and now I know,
that in my wish list is the next one.
A many thanks to Shelly for helping me in the adoption.
For those of you who don't know her site here is a direct link.
Shelly's website
Thanks again Shelly, she is happy at her new home!

I was busy, busy to create a wardrobe for her, and since she is the bigges doll I have sew for, I had to draw all the patterns.
At the picture she is wearing a dress, created from a completely hand-sewn vintage baby dress from the 50's. After testing the material  it came out that is a pure wool!
Front and back of the yoke are with the original hand-stitching, but the rest was done using the sewing machine, and as well a lot of hand-stitching inside.
This colour of the dress would be better for a doll with dark hair.

I am setting up a game for Sasha collectors

Many of my hand-knitted socks were not sold on ebay (as I expected), and because next Christmas is too far away to give them as a present I will do it now. :-)


There is  only one rule to get a pair of free socks.
To be registered on my blog as a follower.


On 19th of January, I will start with posting 10 pairs of socks on the blog.


Every pair will be in a separate post and the first who leave a comment under the post will get the pair!


So start following me now and don't go away after getting your socks.
Maybe on your next visit here you will find an outfit for your Sasha  for free!


Let's have some fun!





Knitting again :-)

I just finished these socks as a surprise for Dee :-)






... another dress for Sasha
