  1. im planning on making a couple brooches for mothers day, and wondering how to make it look better for longer. im using 100% cotton yarn, so should i use starch? is there a special kind of starch i should use, or can i just get any one from the store?
  2. this is the best tutorial i know about changing colours http://www.planetjune.com/blog/amigurumi-help/changing-colour/
  3. thanks i tried making a larger waist and it looked too baggy >_< maybe i was just being fussy lol
  4. heres a doll I made for the Spring Knitting and Stitching Show in London ^_^ the theme was 'gardening' although i kinda ran out of time, so i didnt get around to making more 'gardeny' accessories for her....but she has a flower! so shes been in a garden at some point xD this is the first time i made a doll like this. the legs, body and head is all one piece, then i sewed on the arms. originally i wanted to make her dungarees, but i dunno...just couldnt get it right >_< the longer i made the pants, the harder it was to put them on the doll! so any tips on making doll sized dungarees would be useful.
  5. I'll have to check if there is an address when i get home. I took a pic of the label the otherday, and just linked it, incase that jogs someones memory maybe they're using a different name now or something >.<
  6. Hi all. I recently bought some really nice acrylic yarn from my local 99p store,and i love this yarn it feels so nice xD. Well i wanted to buy some more, but the 99p store has run out, and i can't find it online >.< just wondering if anyone has heard of it or seen it anywhere? Here's a pic of the label: http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8020/7414315004_29cc9a0035_b.jpg
  7. I know it's late, but I'll post this anyway I first posted my amigurumi kokeshi doll last month,and this is the latest one, which i made for st Patrick's day thought it would be interesting to mix japanese and Irish styles. Also i got to test my new light box ^_^ The pattern is posted herehttp://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=136826
  8. Thanks ^_^ She's not a dollfie, cant afford one xD, she's an Obitsu doll, theyre a bit cheaper cost me about £25ish i think....or more, cos i had to order another head cos i messed up the eyebrows on this one xD thats why half her face is covered lol
  9. I bought this ball-jointed doll a few months back for the purpose of making outfits for her, but only just got round to it now xD I've never made any type of clothing before, for humans or dolls, and after a long search online, i found a cool step-by-step tutorial The tutorial was for a dress, but i decided to make it a top instead..and sew'd under it a skirt which I was making initially for a different doll, but it came out too small, and just the right size for this one Ah and I had yet to purchase a wig for the doll, so i made a little cap for her and made my own wig with wool xD I think it looks cool Only thing is, i kinda omitted the buttons...so i kinda sewed her into the clothes xD I'll have to cut it off eventually
  10. It could be because the yarn is thinner that what is used in the pattern. That always happened to me... i ended up using a slightly bigger hook for those squares, and it evened out
  11. You should go to http://www.ravelry.com theres alot of free patterns for everything on there Pretty much all patterns tell you how much/what type of yarn you would need and size hook for that particular item, and if you dont fully understand how to do a type of stitch, theres plenty of tutorial videos on youtube hope that helps
  12. I made my gloves using this pattern http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/texting-gloves I found it easier to read/complete than other patterns
