The Bathing Beauty!

I’m looking for a few pattern testers to test out my new pattern for a Hujoo Baby size swimsuit/romper with a  ruffled bottom. If you are interested, please leave a comment and I’ll email the pattern to you. You will need a size 10 crochet hook and size 10 crochet cotton. If you need any help with the pattern, feel free to contact me. And I would really appreciate pictures of the finished projects!!!

SAMSUNGWell it turns out I’m not as well and able as I thought, but I do have plenty of stuff to post about. The other night I decided I would learn how to knit again because honestly you could not have paid me to knit something without looking up how, I had so completely forgotten it. But luckily it took me all of 30 minutes to re learn it and after making a small swatch I made this adorable sweater and already I’m changing the patterns. Knitting and crochet are half science, half sport. Super easy. I made this sweater from a free pattern Here. She has many great knitting patterns for Pullips and they are so cute! Here it is flat.

SAMSUNGI also made a top for Frankie. I am meaning to add to it to make it more of a baby doll pajama with some bottoms. The trouble I’m having with crocheting for Monster High dolls is that the are SOOOOO incredibly skinny and then their hips and quite wide. I like to make clothes that can be pulled on and off, but it’s looking like I’m going to have to add some kind of closure to their clothes. When I come up with something acceptable, I’ll post the pattern. I know there is a lack of MH crochet patterns.

I’ve also started working to redo my smallest dollhouse. Right now it’s pretty ugly, but soon I will redo the wallpaper, make some furniture, and knit and crochet some rugs and curtains.

For some reason that back corner would not focus. I actually got those two porcelin dolls at the dollar store for Christmas. They fit perfectly and though they are not that great of quality, they are nice fillers so my Suve isn’t so lonely.

I’ll post soon with updates on the dollhouse and some tutorials and tips for saving money! Yay!

*I made an edit , I totally wrote it down wrong, sorry. Everything should be correct now.

This pattern should be easy to scale up or down for other small dolls, you just need to measure the starting chain around the doll and either add or subtract stitches. It is important though to have the number of stitches be even for the V stitch pattern to work. As for the top straps, just divide your new number of stitches by 4 the best you can and make the chains long enough to fit your doll’s shoulders.

Hujoo Baby dress

This pattern is written in American terms.

– Size B / 2.25mm crochet hook

– Bernat Handicrafter Crochet Thread. It doesn’t say what size it is, but it’s much thicker than size 10 crochet thread and thinner than 5. It is about the thickness of sock weight, or Patons Lace.

Starting with the bodice, the pink part in the picture. Use your main color of yarn. Worked in the round, do not turn.

1. Ch 19, join. (this should leave you with 18 stitches.) Sc around.

2 & 3. Sc around. Ch 2.

4. (1 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next stitch, *skip next stitch. (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next stitch.*  Repeat ** around. Join to ch 2. Ch 2.

5-7. Repeat row 4. FO

Now with the contrasting yarn, if you choose to use it. Join at the bottom of the skirt where you just finished off, and sc once in every dc and (1 sc, ch 3, join to first ch, 1 sc) in all the ch 2 spaces. Join to beginning of round and FO.

Still in contrasting yarn, turn the dress right side up with the back facing you.(Note: The following “stitches” mentioned are the other side of the starting chain in pink. Sometimes when you work both sides of a chain it leaves small gaps around. Try and crochet through both loops left from the chain if you can. But if this confuses you then don’t worry about it.)

Starting from the center back, join and sc in the next 3 stitches. Ch 10, skip the next 4 stitches, sc in the next 5 stitches, ch 10, skip the next 4 stitches, sc in the next 2. Join. Sc around in all the sc and across each ch 10. Join and FO. Weave in the ends. Yay, you’re done!!

I hope that you can understand this pattern, and as always don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions. Also, this pattern is completely of my own creation and is for personal use only. I ask that you do not sell this pattern or the items you make from it. Thank you.

Enjoy! Some undies to go with this dress will be up very soon so follow me and check back! I love to hear your comments so don’t be shy!

So this is a review of the Hujoo Baby doll, and my personal experience with The Junky Spot, where I bought my Hujoo Baby Suve. I assume this will go for all the Hujoo Baby dolls as the only differences between them are their face sculpts.

I live in The United States and I bought her last Monday morning online and  (IM)patiently waited for her until she got here on Thursday. Which is pretty reasonable for the US Postal service. I got her for a great price that included her strung head and body with the factory faceup, her really nice blonde wig, her blue plastic eyes, and her stock outfit. She came with all her accessories separately packaged in a box filled with styrofoam peanuts and also came with a cute little charm and a piece of candy.

This is the box her blank body came in. It has a lovely cushion to keep her safe.

I got the apricot skin color. She can stand on her own and is the perfect size for a 1/12 scale dollhouse.

Her arms are very poseable, but her hip joints do wired things…they have these nubs on the ball joint that I assume are for locking for standing, but they make the legs angle too far back. I also don’t like how much her stomach pokes out and her back arches. I wish she would sit/stand up straighter. But real babies do the same thing so I guess that makes sense. One eye hole is also larger than the other. It’s not that noticeable, but it’s there.

Here you can see what I mean about how she arches back. It annoys me, but you can’t tell at all when she is wearing clothes.

This is the inside of her head. I crudely used sticky tack to fix the eyes in. I later found the eye putty in amongst the peanuts. XD

This is her stock outfit. A pink shirt and a white jumper.

Despite the few flaws she has, I still really love her and would definitely recommend her as a cheaper substitute for a Lati Yellow, or just as a really sweet addition to your collection. She was amazingly easy to make my own and has inspired me to do so many things! Here she is sitting on the couch I made her. This is the first couch I’ve ever made so it’s a bit rough, but my next project I will know what to better.

Here is just the couch. I used cardboard, fabric, stuffing, and a hot glue gun!

And here is a close up of the shoes I made her while watching tv tonight.

Thanks so much for reading! If you want to know more about anything in my posts just leave a comment and I will go more into detail about it.

You should really follow my blog so you don’t miss out on any of the awesome! ;D

I actually got her last Thursday, but I’ve been so busy I haven’t been able to post. Here are some pictures of my sweet little girl and the dress and hat I made her. I’ll write a proper review later.

I’m so excited!!!!! I want a Lati Yellow sooooo bad, but I was able to find a super super cheap doll that is almost as cute at The Junky Spot! It’s the Hujoo baby Suve! I ordered her Monday morning and I just can’t wait for her to get her so I can make her adorable baby clothes to fit her chubby lil body! It’s hard to make tiny lacey dresses with big open skirts work with tall skinny dolls. So in the mean time I thought I would get cracking on some Christmas presents in between the intense cleaning we are doing to make the house acceptable for hosting Thanksgiving dinner XD oh my goodness, I just might die! I think this year I will be making mostly hats because that’s what everyone seems to want. I had sat down and made some awesome fuzzy house socks for my mother last night that worked up so fast and were the most perfect pair with just a few adjustments to the free pattern I found. I’ll do a post on those soon. They were meant to be for Christmas but I was so proud of them I just had to give them to her that night, and of course she was thrilled, which makes me thrilled. I think I might buy a set of wooden matryoshka dolls and paint them for her for her Christmas present. I also am going to make a hat with a detachable crochet beard for my boyfriend, a cotton mug cover and dish towel set for my grandmother, and an embellished sweater for my other grandmother. I could blather on about other things but I’ll get to the part you all came here to see, the pictures.

This is a little bunny I made because I wanted something cute.

This was supposed to be a goldfish, but then the pattern became incomprehensible when it got to the body. Don’t you hate that? I mean, you work so hard only to get into a terrible rut. I usually make up my own pattern when that happens but I got so discouraged that I decided to turn it into a mermaid tail in progress.

Can anyone guess who this is going to be?

My new favorite dress.

Pretty pretty!

I can’t wait for my new dolly!!!!!!!! When I get her I’ll do a review and everything and then probably post some patterns for clothes because there isn’t alot of love for them on the web. I think they might be pretty new..?

Have a great day and thanks for reading! I’d love to hear from you!

I doubt anyone has noticed how long it’s been since I last posted, but just in case you were wondering when I was going to post more awesomeness and perhaps where I’ve been, I’ve had a terrible migraine with nausea that keeps me from using anything with a screen and crocheting ect. so I haven’t been able to post. Thankfully it seems to havew passed now and I’ve been busy making random things to get out all my creative juices that have been locked inside me these past weeks! Sorry for the crappy pics taken on my bed, but I’m freezing to death!

This is my progress on the Adventure Time blanket. The on on the very top will be Gunter. Then from left to right on the top row: Lumpy Space Princess, Fiona, Finn, Stormo, and  Lemon Grab. On the bottom row: Cinnamon Bun, Jake, Peppermint Butler, Wild Berry Princess, and Cake. I hope to have 8 rows of 6 across at some point before I die! XD


Here is a Pullip sized dress I made. It’s simple but I like it. She looks a little less depressing in it….a little.

This one is similar but more easy going. I think it looks perfect for a stroll by the ocean.

These two I made with a new skein I got today. It’s Paton’s lace in porcelain. I think they look like winter fairies, so pretty.

They can also be worn as skirts! Woot!

This is an elf-ish jumper for a Best Friend Club inc. doll. I don’t have any other clothes for her yet so unfortunately she’s mostly naked.

This is what it looks like from the back. The buttons are functional for easy dressing. I have the pattern and was going to post it soon to see if anyone would test it for me, even though it is pretty simple. I would like to improve my skills at writing patterns that OTHERS can read too! Haha!

I didn’t expect this to look so pretty! She looks like a female Jack Frost. Jacqueline Frost! Well that’s it for now. I hope everyone is keeping safe and warm, especially those hit by Sandy. It’s so important to be prepared for emergencies! It’s as easy as washing out a few empty soda bottles and filling them with water and putting them under the sink. You can use them drink or wash with, or just to flush the toilet. And you should always try to keep at least three days worth of food in the house. As well as a fully stocked first aid kit, extra prescription medications, and essentials like flashlights, radios, and batteries. I think it’s unbelievable that people will try to drive to the next state to get what they can from a gas station or Mcdonalds instead of just having what you need at home. You won’t always be able to do that. The road might not be clear, or you may not be able to get gas, not to mention that it will be dangerous during and right after and emergency situation. So please everyone, take care of your own families. And if you’ve been told to evacuate, DO IT!

 

Thanks for reading! I’d love to hear your comments!

Isn’t it just my luck that as soon as I decide to start my blog featuring my dolls that something would happen to throw a wrench in it. That something happens to be that the family husky decided that he needed something to chew on, can guess what it was? Yes, it’s true, my Pullip, new Liv, and my brand new, just out of the box, got that night Tangkou. As you can imagine, I am distraught. Those are the only dolls I have and I had a lot of money invested in them. Not to mention that when I came downstairs it looked as though I had walked into a massacre. Limbs strewn across the floor, matted tufts of hair blowing around, mangled bits of who knows what sitting in silent horror! But I think I found all the pieces and put them back together. My Liv and Tangkou are salvageable, but my Pullip’s body is crunched to bits and her face was scratched up really bad, chipping the paint and somehow even breaking her eye mechanism. RIP my lovelies.

As terrible as it is I will still post this tutorial for an easy doll skirt that can be adapted for any kind of doll.

Easy doll skirt

What you need:

  • 2″ wide ribbon, or fabric of your choice
  • size 10 crochet thread in a complementing color
  • size 13 crochet hook. ( I used a very small hook so it would pierce the fabric easily, but you could also use a sharp crochet hook in any size or poke holes first with a large needle or other sharp implement.)
  • scissors
  • sewing machine or needle and thread

1. First you use your doll to measure out how much you need. This is about how it should look once you cut it out. I fold about a cm on the top and the bottom so make you you keep that in mind when measuring for length. Make sure you leave enough room for seam allowance, depending on your sewing skills you may need a lot or a little. If you aren’t sure, or are in experienced sewing small things than it’s better to have more seam allowance. You can always cut off the excess in side to keep things tidy.

2. Cut out two pieces for the skirt. Place the right sides of the fabric together and sew up the sides. Try it on the doll, if it is too loose then sew up one side a little further in to make it smaller. Make sure you secure your stitches at the beginning and ends to make it extra durable. Trim the excess seams and strings to keep things neat.

3. Now it’s time to crochet the trim around the top and bottom. The ribbon I was using frayed very easily so I folded about a cm  inside on the top and bottom and crocheted through it. I recommend doing this, but it is optional. This is what the inside looks like when it is finished.

Sorry for the shadow XD

Now turn your skirt right side out. I just used my crochet hook to poke the holes as I went along, but you could also use a needle or something. Everyone’s skirt will be a little different, so there is no pattern set in stone, but this skirt is very forgiving.

Top Trim

Round 1. On the top I just single crochet around once, join with a slip stitch and finish off.

Bottom Trim

Round 1. On the bottom I single crochet around and join with a slip stitch. Do not turn.

Round 2. Chain 1 and single crochet around again, joining with a slip stitch.

Round 3. Chain 1 and single crochet in same stitch. *Chain 3 and skip the next two stitches, single crochet in the next stitch.* Repeat ** around, chaining 3 and joining with the first single crochet.

Round 4. Chain 1 and single crochet 4 times in all the chain 3 spaces around. Join with slip stitch and finish off.

Now you should have a cute new skirt! I really hope this tutorial helps and makes sense! Feel free to ask if you have any questions. And let me know if you make a skirt for your doll, I would love to see.

I’ll have more patterns and tutorials coming up so check back soon!
