Blythe maybe wearing an expensive gown but on her feet she wears a pair of comfy, affordable, and most importantly easy to make socks.
She somehow managed to get her hands on a dolly fashion magazine and fell madly in love with Hanon’s style.
After much begging, pleading, and a few subtle messages left on my desk and web history, I caved in to her demands of getting a Hanon pattern.
I knew I wanted something simple for my 1st dolly sewing project, so I choose a Hanon sock kit from her Etsy shop. (The socks are no longer available on Etsy, but you can find them at her Hanon Online Shop, she ships international)
Inside the kit were 4 small pieces of fabric, instructions, and a pattern.
I like how Hanon supplies the fabric. It’s one less thing you have to worry about, allowing you to get sewing quicker.
The instructions were easy to follow and it didn’t take very long to complete.
I’m so happy that Blythe convinced me to purchased the kit.
I’m happy with the final results of the socks.
It’s a rewarding feeling knowing you created something yourself! 🙂
I hope this project is the catalysis I need to jump start a love of sewing clothes for dolls.
I later purchased Hanon’s Doll Sewing Book.
It’s filled with many beautiful images and even has English translations, but for some odd reason I feel intimidated to make an outfit. So it’s hanging out on the book case.
But I’m determined to tackle the projects just like I did the socks.
Do you sew doll clothes, if so do you remember your 1st project?
If you haven’t sewn doll clothes, what do you think is holding you back?
