I’ve been working on some doll sewing and knits for the girls for Christmas and birthdays. One most requested item are shoes for the beloved Waldorf dolls. I had Saartje’s Bootees pattern in my queue for some time, and after reading a few reviews, realized they could be made small enough for dolls. So over the weekend, I made two pairs of little doll shoes. They are tiny and sturdy and stretchy, and after doubling the length of the straps, fit the dolls’ feet very well. They are a perfect way to use up some leftover sock or fingering weight yarn, and knit up quickly. I’m sure the girls will love them!
I also worked up this Princess Birthday Crown for my middle child’s upcoming birthday. I did it in crochet because I thought it might be a little stiffer and sturdier. Nothing like a little project with acrylic yarn to make you appreciate natural fibers! But I think the birthday girl will love it.
I’m getting down to single digits of pregnancy weeks, and I’ve had to be mindful about resting more often. So I’ve been passing a lot of down time with knitting new projects and finishing some unfinished projects – lucky me! 🙂
