Claire Garland has created a wonderfully charismatic collection of knitted dolls along with their wardrobe of hand-knit and hand-sewn clothes - a modern yet retro take that will appeal to young and old alike. * Whether at the beach, the rodeo, practising ballet, or just hanging out with friends the Babes sport the latest look * Includes patterns for five dolls with nearly 50 clothes and accessories to make * Each Babe has a unique identity but items can be mixed and matched between the dolls * Simple to make with instructions, patterns, and templates throughout * Combines easy knitting and simple sewing Claire's attention to detail is impeccable - slippers, flip-flops, boots, purses, throws, and hats complete the styling. You can recreate the Babes as shown or use the patterns as inspiration to let your imagination run riot - the only problem is being able to stop.
Claire Garland is an exciting new designer who specialises in sewn items for children. She has designed several kits for tapestry companies, but her three young children have inspired many of the projects featured in this book. Claire lives in Cardiff.
She has had them for over a year and plays with them all the time. I think in these days of mass production it can really make a child feel loved to have something made just for them. She has so much fun with these dolls and unlike her barbie's they have been given names and have there own personalities. They are more like companions than toys.
These dolls are charming and so fun to make. I actually knit them in the round and it goes so much faster.
My son loves them too so I am thrilled to see she has made a second book with patterns for a boy doll. My mom is making him the pirate for Xmas.
Just beware of of yarn recommendations and needle sizes!
