How to knit a simple doll vest

Later today I'll post the first in a series of tutorials on how to knit and sew simple clothes for your dolls.

Doll clothes don't have to be difficult, just think back to how you used to make clothes for your dolls when you were just a girl only now you don't have to beg scraps from Mum.

Anyway I have to do the last of the back to school shopping today, Andy's books and things plus Kate and I are going to see Bran Nue Dae which should be fun.
On the other side of the coin Louis is staying home and watching Samson & Delilah

See you later.

  1. What adorable shoes and cardigans in the last two posts. It's the little touches that make all the difference. And you have a knack for those wonderful touches. Can't wait to see what you come up with. I'm knitting a small scarves for the girls. It snows here in the midwest and they need to be ready for a change in temps :) Can't wait to see your next post.

  2. Dearest Jenny,
    I can't wait!
    I have been trying to make clothes for Jessie's doll and have even resorted to pulling apart clothes from my cabbage patch doll to cut a pattern from!
    Thanks for sharing sweet Jenny,

  3. Hi Jenny, I am really looking forward to this.

  7. Yay! This is such a wonderful gift! I've been dying to knit little sweaters for some of my bunnies. Thank you SO much!

  8. Thankyou in anticipation!

    As you said re the sewing, is how I made the pants for 'Curly'... it's the knitting bit that has me fuzzled ;)

    Thankyou Jenny... and yes, I'm sure there will be many appreciative readers, and even more appreciative children - recipients of dolls made and dressed (with your help here) with loving hands.

  9. Ok, so I've just discovered you. And it is way past my bedtime here in GA (USA) but now I've found your blog and don't want to go to bed. But I'm the mommy.....Your dolls are incredible and I can't wait to get back on here! Thank you for sharing!!!

  10. I am so excited about this! Thanks for sharing your wisdom and creativity, Jenny! You may cause me to pluck up the courage to approach my sewing machine!
