I have a mix of Blythe and Blythe clone dolls. Not all of them came with stands. Therefore I looked into making my own. The simplest solution I came across was the “stick it up your jumper” approach. Literally. You use a wooden dowel and stick it up the back of the jumper or dress the doll is wearing. The bottom of the dowel needs to be stuck in something to keep it stable for this to work. I currently have 4 dolls. I spotted a packet of 4 wooden coasters in my local T.K. Maxx (aka T.J. Maxx to those in the US or Winners if your in Canada). Serendipity fueled inspiration. Instructions below for how to make your very own easy DIY Blythe stand.
This Blythe Coraline Dress was more than a little bit inspired by the movie Coraline. For the knitted up version of the dress shown below I was lucky enough to find mini skeins of hand spun yarn from a seller at Yarndale that had silver sparkles spun in!
This pattern is for a reversible dress for Lalaloopsy 13″ dolls. I’ve been having difficulty finding any Lalaloopsy Free Sewing Patterns. One of the most basic patterns for any doll is the reversible dress. Alas my Google mojo failed to find me one sized for my LaLa. Oh woe betide. Armed with a ruler and my trusty french curve I battled for… well… at least a couple of hours. This war has now been won. Hopefully someone else will find it useful also.
The Half and Half Blythe Dress Pattern is a simple pattern for a half knit and half sewn Blythe dress, thus the name. It should fit Blythe and similar sized dolls.
A couple of months ago I decided that I NEEDED to knit a blythe cupcake hat for a swap. Luckily there are some lovely crochet patterns available for cupcake hats for Blythe. Unluckily I can’t crochet to save my life. The only solution? Invent a pattern. So I did. Here it is. I hope you enjoy.
