These Boots . . .

. . . were made for walking.

Did you know that dolls have shoe fetishes just like humans? Well it turns out Cassandra is one of those dolls. I recently ordered her one or two pairs of boots to go with the outfits I was knitting her and a few more in different colours for other dolls I have with similar sized feet . . . 10 pairs in total.

And, guess what? When they arrived today, she claimed the blooming lot!!

Now I have been given notice to make her outfits to match each pair. Who would have thought this pretty little girl would turn out to be such a bossy boots?

She is wearing the second outfit, but the blue cardi turned out a little larger than expected, even though it was knitted with the same brand of 4ply wool and to the same pattern as the pink cardi. Go figure! Anyway I am going to attempt to shrink it by felting the wool.

Oh and before you go . . . I caved already and have just purchased a Kaye Wiggs Mini Layla.
I'd feel a lot better if I could just move the ones I have up 4 sale. :)

Cassandra Arrived!

Yes, she's here and she's all mine! 😁 This doll was really worth waiting for. You may notice her left brow is slightly lower than the her right, but I quite like that she's a little asymmetrical, after all, humans are that way IRL.

Who said a redhead can't wear pink? I knitted the outfit for her while I waited and am pleased it fitted her so well.

She also has another outfit almost done, just have to sew up the cardi and add buttons. :)

Hope you are all having a lovely dolly week!
