Crocheting Pullip Sweaters, skirts and hats 2012

I have my very own Pullip doll now.  Meet Sabra.  My granddaughter emailed me to say that she knew someone who wanted to sell a Pullip doll at a very reasonable price.  I needed one to have as a model for making clothing for my granddaughter's dolls.  So now Sabra is a part of my family.  I have  to admit, it is so much easier having a model to get the correct size for the clothing I make.  I just started crocheting sweaters and skirts for the dolls.  Here is Sabra in the very first sweater and skirt I made.

Oh this is soooo 70's, lol  Crocheted top and slacks.  Sabra is wearing the pretty ocean blue hat with the dolphin

Sabra looks as though she is about to fall asleep, maybe I'm overdoing it with the modeling.

I really  like this combination of Chartreuse green and grey.  the hat is one I made last year, the outfit goes well together.  The sweaters are 3 inches from the edge of the neck to the bottom.

Sabra looks lovely in this soft, Angora hat with a beautiful jeweled button.  I've been able to find some beautiful buttons on the internet, and very reasonably priced too.

Sabra in my multiple green hat and her new Mohair, Teal green sweater.  If you like to knit or crochet, don't miss out on bargains in thrift stores in your area.  I have been able to pick up Mohair, Angora and wool yarn at less than basement prices.  Estate sales are a great place to find yarn also.

Sabra models her blue heather sweater.  The hat is made from yarn I bought at a thrift store, microfibre and acrylic, so soft and originally $8.99 skein, for thirty cents a skein.

These are small necklaces I put together for the Granddaughter's Pullip dolls.  I'm always looking for small charms wherever I go, cheap of course.

Sabra in her turquoise hat with the sunshine charm, wearing the first cardigan sweater I crocheted.  I love the itsy bitsy buttons.

Sabra modeling her teal and off white striped hat.  She's also wearing one of the necklaces I made.

At the left is a child's hat, that is 9" from top to brim, at the right is a Pullip doll's hat, this gives you some idea of how small Pullips are. And their heads are much larger than their bodies.

Candy corn, something fun I crocheted.  So cute, they're about  4" high.
