11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Dolly of myself (from Jess Hutchinson's Booklet!) on: January 06, 2007 07:35:33 PM
Ok, here's the scenario, My boyfriend left for a study trip to China a week before i had to leave to go back to college.  I told him I didn't know what I'd do with all my time when he was gone, and he said I could make him stuff. So I told him I didn't know what he liked, and he said "I like you."  I told him I couldn't make me for him, but then reconsidered (without telling him, of course). So I made him this silly doll (based on Jess Hutchinson's dolly pattern) and made it to look like the drawings I do of myself all the time. My bangs really go off to the right, but since I always see myself in the mirror my drawings always show my bangs going off to the left...so I did the same with my dolly Smiley haha...enjoy!

(and this is one of my doodles that I have been doing lately...)

I love that too!! I hope she gives up the pattern Smiley Especially for the flower...I like the bolero, but I usually end up not wearing them, but the flower could go on everything!!

i started making one of these recently and i plan to finish very soon. But uh i wondered how sturdy they are. Like how long do you think itll last?

They last really well..I've had a couple friends use them to write all the way through and they've held up, the only thing that was a bit weak at the end was the glue holding the front and back pages to the outside, it started pulling up a bit.  So you might want to make your own choice on that. But the sewing and the binding held up great!

I do one piece of cardboard at a time and I just hold it tight in place and do one side tight and then go the next side of the cardboard.

I always start with one of the larger side pieces, then do the middle piece, then the other side. I don't pin, I'm just slow and careful Smiley Tape might work well, though.

That guy is AWESOME Smiley haha...the embroidery is so beautiful! I love all the different stitches you used! I would love to do something with a bunch of overlapping types of stitches like that.. I'm not sure what though Smiley Thanks for posting him!

those are adorable! If I was pregnant, I'd want you to make one of those for me Smiley I'm definitely not, however, and will not be for quite some time. Oh well.

Hey Smiley Picking up stitches is not as complicated as it sounds, basically you just put your needle through each spot that you want a stitch to be (grab a loop from where you've already knitted) and then act as though that is one of your loops from a previous row of knitting. I'm not sure if that was explained very well...put your needle through one stitch at a time until you see 10 loops along the needle (or however many you want the width of the base of the ears to be) so it looks like knit stitches waiting to be grabbed. Maybe someone else will say it better..lol

Ooooh! I think i'm gonna make covers like that for my binders next year for school!

That's a great idea Smiley You'd have the cutest binders of anyone, by far!

That dress looks amazing on you! it is so cute and I think it fits your figure perfectly, definitely does not look weird! Good job, especially with the little boy pullin on your leg, it's true they can be very distracting and make things difficult Smiley
