Tag Archives: tapestry needle.


I’m in the final stages of doll making for my three years old grand daughter M5. I made an initial mistake in not noticing that a contrast wool was needed for the dress. I didn’t look up the pattern properly, otherwise I wouldn’t have missed it. 

Yesterday I stitched the doll’s hair to it’s head. The hair are not of uniform length. Some are short, while others long. M5 asked why her doll was having blue hair? Blue hair looked more pretty, and matched it’s shoes. Now M4 who is eight years old is asking for a similar doll. She is more into boyish pursuits, eternally following TJ (brother) around.  I never thought she would be interested in a crocheted doll. I will have to find time to make one for her too.

Son was busy, and wasn’t free to go with me to the shops. I do need the contrast wool, a tapestry needle, buttons for the eyes, and red embroidery thread for making the mouth of the doll. I’m so used to Son accompanying me on drives for the past one year, I hesitate in driving alone.
