Dolls’ Clothes

I’ve always enjoyed sewing and knitting which could be one of the reasons I trained as a Home Economics teacher – a long time ago.  I made a lot of clothes for my children when they were small, and as my daughter got older I made her evening dresses and her wedding dress.   There is a great sense of achievement in creating something – especially something that is different in some way to everyone else’s outfits.  I knitted clothes for Sindy and Action Man, and made 3 little quilted sleeping bags – one for Sindy and one each for my sons’ Action Men.  They went camping in Sindy’s tent and abseiled down a rope from the handles on our sideboard.   Recently I made clothes for one of my granddaughter’s Sindy dolls – as she loves to play with the clothes I made for her auntie many years ago.

  3. These are totally amazing! That sleeping bag looks like a human one! Brings back memories of my childhood too! I thought my mum was good at needle craft but she has nothing on you!
