It’s been a busy few months! I’ve been learning how to knit and crochet clothing for 18 inch fashion dolls, and I am having a blast playing around with patterns (ok, and playing with the dolls), and creating some of my own patterns along the way.
Lately I’ve been trying to perfect a half double crochet top that I can start to offer in my Etsy store. But previously, I’ve been trying to make all sorts of things, from knit sweaters and jackets, to crochet hat and scarf sets. And of course messing up my studio along the way. Much of what I’ve been experimenting with has evolved during Twitch broadcasts, with some helpful advice from other crafters and viewers.
Probably my favorite project over the past month has been the Star Trek inspired knit sweaters and slacks set, which is available on Etsy.
I’ve loved playing around with the pattern, figuring out how to create the multi-color sweater, and breaking out the sewing machine to work on little stretchy slacks to offer with the sweaters. Finally understanding how to make little elastic waistbands, and how to get everything to fit the dolls, has been a lot of rewarding work. I have a lot to learn, but it has been a lot of fun seeing my crafting evolve.
