Dolls and stick horses


One day my daughter asked me to do a blue mini stick horse for her dolls. She sat by my side the whole time and was very happy when I was done. (Now she wants to be a grown up so she can needle felt herself...)
 

I got stuck in horses for awhile.. But now I want to move on to something else.. But it's nice to do a lot when I feel like it, then it might take years until I want to do another horse again =)

As you could see on my Instagram, I did manage to do a dress for poor mini Blythe. It was harder than I thought.. But first I did a dress for a naked Lundby mum, it was easy and it fits perfectly.

Then I thought it would be easy to make another dress for LPS Blythe, but I was wrong...
The dress just came apart and the fabric wanted to come apart and then I used a lot of glue.. and in the end I just forced it on the poor doll after taking her head off.. The dress came apart again and I used more glue and now she is stuck in the dress.. =) Might be for the best.. I don't want to make another dress for a long time now...

Here she is with her friend. 
(The dress on the right is not made by me, only the left one)

Finally she was able to leave the bedroom.

The girls had a nice time in the livingroom. (My daughter thought Lalaloopsy should be in the picture too!)
And we had some rainy days, so the girls got to watch the same TV show me and my daughter watched this week; Pippi Långstrump (Pippi Longstocking)

I went looking for my Lundby furniture at my mum's basement, found a whole box of Lundby dolls =) Some will move in to the Lundby Dallas house.


I have gotten stuck in buying dolls too, I just love them, the apartment is quite full of dolls and miniatures by now.. Barbie, Ever After High and all kind of small dolls.. But since Sweden stop selling EAH I got a bit mad and don't know if I want to buy more.. it's not as fun to order abroad and they even deleted the whole EAH site in Swedish, and all the episodes are gone. So now me and my daughter can't watch them together.. I know they still make new ones in English, but she doesn't understand English yet.. and I think it was much more fun to watch them together with her.. and when they even deleted the old episodes so we can't even watch our old favourite ones I just gave up! But I'll save all my EAH dolls, and maybe I'll buy Kitty and Cupid too, really want them, but have to look abroad then.. But the Swedish prices were crazy, so I understand they didn't sell good enough.. 2 times or 3 times the price on Amazon.com, that is just stupid.. But when they gave up EAH they sold them very cheep, so I have manage to get hold on some new ones for a good price, have to take pictures of them some day..

But now I just rest a lot, building up some energy for times to come..
Take care
Hannah

  2. Wow! I am so impressed by all the things you made! I like the stick horses and the dresses came out really well. My daughter asked for some clothes for her Heidi Ott doll - so I have also been making some clothes for dolls, although I don't think mine look as good as yours. The nightgown is particularly huge, but she was happy with it because it was easy to get on and off! Anyway, I think you are due in October so take care!

    1. Thank you Penelope you are so sweet!
      I bet your clothes looks good, nice to have a big nightgown =) Just like I have in real life ;)
      Yes 3 weeks, give or take, until due date.. Feels like forever and no time at all, at the same time =)

  3. Your horses are amazing Hannah! And I love your Blythe outfits, they are super cute! Does youtube have any EAH shows in Swedish? I watch shows with Miss Kitty on YouTube when the days get long, I'm tired and just don't feel like playing any more ;)

    1. Thank you Kat! I haven't found the swedish EAH episodes on Youtube, might look again, but we have other things to watch =) but it's sad they deleted the whole EAH site, very unnecessary if you ask me =)

  4. Hi Hannah :D! Your mini horses are amazing, I like it that you've made them in more colors, great work :D! Yes, I know that sewing clothing can be difficult, it depends of the doll you want to clothe, isn't it ;)? Unfortunately I don't know anything about the tv series you're talking about, but it isn't funny that you can't watch your favorite television serie on tv anymore with your daughter....such a pity for daughter and mom.
    I hope you're feeling fine?
    Warm hug, Ilona

    1. Nice to hear from you again Ilona! Hope you had a great summer (I have to go look if there is some exciting news on your blog now) I'm feeling fine thank you!
      Thank you, making horses in different colours makes it funnier to make them, it's nice to see how the next colour will turn out =)

  5. What a parade of lovely stick horses! And in so many gorgeous colours - a very nice collection. Sorry to hear about your clothes problems... but your mini Blythe looks great in the dress you've made for her. You own an impressive collection of Lundby dolls - you could even have a big party with many guests in your Lundby house... ;O) Sorry to hear you can't watch EAH anymore with your daughter... but Pippi Longstocking together with the dolls might be a good substitute...

    Hugs

    1. Thank you Birgit!
      Yes, a Lundby doll party seem like a good idea =) And when I finally can display all my Lundby houses (when I get rich and bought a biiiiig house that fits all my mini houses..), they might even get a home, all of them =)

    1. Tack Titti! Ja, jag tänkte sälja några hästar sen, jag är så sugen på att vara med på mässan i Stockholm snart igen, men i år hinner jag inte då vi ska ha en bebis i Oktober, men jag samlar saker till en framtida mässa =) men är du intresserad av en häst nu så är det bara att höra av dig =)

  9. The dress you made for your LPS is so pretty, I see no need to ever remove it! :-) Your stick horses are really cute. I love the visual image of your daughter sitting at your side while you made her one. That's quite a stash of Lundby dolls! Fun! xo Jennifer

  10. Kjolen ble kjempesøt, godt det gikk an å ta av hodet. Hestene var flotte, sånn en god ide. Så rart med EAH dukkene, tror de har dem i Norge fortsatt, men er ikke sikker. Har kjøpt en, men det er en stund siden. Ha en riktig god dag, og uke. Hilsen Pam i Norge

    1. Tack Pam! Jag trodde de skulle sluta med EAH i hela norden nu, men jag är inte säker, vi får väl se hur det blir..
      Hoppas du får en bra vecka med!

  13. Wow! You scored a lot of dolls! I have trouble finding dolls that are realistic enough or fit my scenes, visually. You got quite a variety though! I bet you are having fun setting them up in all sorts of scenes. I like the stick horse; what a fun idea! :)

  14. Hi Hannah, I think those horses look wonderful, very nice job! And I enjoyed your scene of the dolls watching Pippi, Pippi is so much fun! And your daughter is so right: Lalaloopsy should be included! :D Too bad you can't enjoy the swedish version of Ever after high, that's a real shame and disappointing for both you and your daughter.. I tried a search to watch them online (something you might have done too), but all I get are English versions, aarrgghhh..

  15. Now I forget about the dress, I can only imagine how hard that must be, but you really tried! And I think the result is great, it's a lovely dress!
