Bunka Cloth Doll Pattern Giveaway! Wohoo!

I just fell head over heals with the Japanese Bunka cloth doll. I've searched and searched for a pattern, but they are so hard to find through the internet. I have a feeling that others feel the same. So I decided to create my own Bunka cloth doll pattern. To celebrate I'm having a  giveaway. I'll be giving away 5 patterns. The pattern is in Pdf file with lots of colorful instructions and patterns to print out. She Measures about 10 inches tall. Just comment to let me know you're interested  and I'll enter you in the drawing...you may also announce the giveaway on your own blog if you like.

  Now available for purchase here on my blog on the the right hand side bar just scroll down and Click Add to cart.

I'll announce the winners in 1 week from today. Next Monday

I Finally Made A Mini Free Spirit Crochet Doll

I finally made a Mini Free Spirit crochet doll...she is responsible for the inspiration of the Blossom Petal's cloth dolls I created. The credit for the crochet pattern belongs to Beth Webber. You can get the free pattern by visiting her blog www.byhookbyhand.blogspot.com. She's a wonderful, lovely, giving, inspirational, and kind woman. She is my kindred spirit. Thanks Beth.

Her name is Katie. The size of this doll measures 8 inches tall. It's suppose to measure about 7 inches or so...I don't know what happened. She still turned out cutesie anyway. I hope I make Beth proud. by the way my son named her

I gave her eyelashes made with embroidery floss. It was very exciting for me to crochet the hands and feet because I've often wondered how Beth did that...Beth. that sure was a clever and unique way to make hands and feet...I loved it!

I made the crochet clothes, shoes, hair clip, umbrella, and teacup set.

I will have the teapot crochet pattern available for making. I will be having a giveaway for the teacup set crochet pattern real soon. It's crocheted in size 10 cotton thread and the teapot has a removeble lid. So if you're interested stay tuned. I will also announce the giveaway on www.youtube.com/carolyndolls. The pattern will be in a pdf file.

Toothpick Doll

These are dolls I made with toothpicks and embroidery floss. This lovely idea is created by Angela Michelle Dolls. This one Measures 2 1/2 inches tall. I enjoyed making it. My 11 year old son also made one, But he wants to draw a backdrop for his before I take pictures.

I decided to paint a face. The Tutorial on making the head differ's from what I did. I used a 7mm wood bead to help me make the head.
