these past few days im into crocheting barbie clothes. its the CAL in the crochetville that urged me to dug the my ‘old’ barbie and clothed her literally. then i found out that the new barbies has a better body figure … a realistic body figure i must say (thanx to a ville member also -shell). because if the old barbies will be a real human being with that body measurement, she will not be able to stand on her own. thats a fact actually.
anyway back to crocehting clothes, not so long ago, when i was younger, i made barbie clothes with scrap fabrics from my mom’s stuff. i even kept a notebook of my ‘sketches’. and now that i have a 3 yr old daughter…im back to playing again. its fun!
i dont want to start a big project that i cant finish quick, so i start with a small one and move to a bigger one after i finished it. i always like to crochet wearables, but im chicken. im scared to big projects….somebody from the ville had advised that if one is afraid to do wearable pattern try it out to smaller a model. tadah! barbie!
one day, when i have the will power ill try it out — the real wearables but for the meantime crocheting doll clothes gives me 50% fulfillment of that dream.
the blue green jacket pattern is from mrs. who’s shrug schematics at crochetville. the red dress isnt finished yet, i still want to do something more to it and that gold thread is supposed to be a shawl but i become contented with a stole.
