These are all made from the Jean Greenhowe patterns. I love the woman and think she is a genius! I chose her patterns because I wanted to learn how to understand the techicalities of knitting - thanks to Jean Greenhowe, I now do.

These are some of the dolls I made. They are all made from Jean Greenhowe patterns. I LOVE her work; I think the woman is a genius! I bought her patterns specifically to teach myself how to understand knitting, and thanks to Jean Greenhowe, I now do. These are all knitted dolls. Everything about these dolls is all knitted: the dolls themselves, the clothes, the articles they have in their hands and on their heads, the golf clubs and golf cart, the sausages, the carrot, the hammer, screwdriver, cup, watch, even the pencils - everything!

This first one is some of the gang!


Then there's the Carpenter doll - 27"


The Chef doll - 27"


the Golfer doll - 27"


Jane - 29"


and the doll I call Sally is 15", and the little doll approx 8" is a topsy turvy doll


Here is Cinderella - a fairly big doll for a topsy turvy doll - apprx 12"

157  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Rockin Robot Costume - all cardboard on: February 14, 2012 06:41:16 PM
I made this for my youngest a ways back. It was made from 2 cardboard boxes. I fixed a battery operated light to the top box. I put a door in the front of the bigger lower box so he could open it up to receive larger treats. I also installed a slot that allowed for the smaller candy to be put into it which would then slide down inside the box and caught inside a plastic bag; that way he could munch out from inside the box. Those are not his hands that you see on the outside; they are false hands made from fat cardboard tubes and stuffed gloves spray painted silver. His hands are naturally on the inside. I painted a scene from another planet on the front door of the box just to break up all that silver coloring. I used and old pair of pants and boots for the bottom  half, also spray painted silver. He had a ball with that costume!

160  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Re: Sewing Machine Cover on: February 12, 2012 08:16:52 PM
What a beauty!  I LOVE it!!! I just whipped out my sewing machine a few days ago. That poor thing hasn't seen the light of day for about 2 years now. I had stashed it in the basement and covered it with an old coat and just forgot about it. But since I am trying something new now that requires a sewing machine, I got her out of the basement and had her serviced to make sure she still works ok (and she does), but then now I had to make a cover for it- it never did have one.

So what I did was ... now don't laugh ... I took one of those store bought supermarket bags that you pay a dollar for so as to save on paper/trees; you know the ones - they usually have pretty pictures on them, those --- anyway, I had a few of them so I grabbed one, cut off about a third of it, from the top down, meaning from the handles on downwards and slipped it over the machine. Would you believe ... the thing fit PERFECTLY. All I had to do was cut out a small area on the bottom so the plug could show thru.
Someday I hope I'll get around to making a decent cover. Hopefully one as pretty as yours!
Love all the color and patterns. Nice job!
