A Peek at My Latest

A Peek at My Latest

Dressed in her finest, Gertrude and her family are ready to walk into town to celebrate with the villagers. They have spent the last 3 days preparing; washing and mending, gathering and baking. The children could speak of little else, and Gertrude, along with her husband, have shared tales of celebrations from their childhood. Now, they are ready to go!

I am very excited to share the first doll house character I completed, using the forms I recently received from A Child’s Dream.

My head is spinning with ideas for dressing the whole family; mama, papa, brother and sister, in clothes for special events and working their small farm. I will be sharing patterns when I have completed the whole family, but being an absolutely awful secret keeper, I couldn’t help but share my first creation. I am so pleased with how she turned out!




  1. She is gorgeous! I am so in awe of your talent. Your workmenship is unbelievable and your ideas are so inspired and inspiring. By making your patterns, I’ve noticed my skills improving. Thanks for setting the bar for me 😉

    1. I am so in love with her!!! I am really excited to see a tutorial, especially of the hair which is gorgeous!!!!

      Again, another lovely creation!

  2. These are so adorable! I cannot wait to meet the rest of the family!

  3. Wow! You’ve done it again. A wonderful creation. Can’t wait for the rest of the family. Maybe a grandma? As we are so important to the rest. Love Gertrude, she seems to have my hips!

  4. Wow!! Another fantastic project. I can’t wait to see the rest of the family AND getting the patterns. My fall gnome scene is
    up, the ghosts made, the pumpkins felted, and the gnomes all settled in. Now, a new project for Christmas would be great.
    These dolls might (or maybe?) go to granddaughters. May not be able to give them away. I agree with one of the other comments that a grandma doll is needed. Thanks for all the ideas and sharing.

  5. She is absolutely precious! I was so filled with gratitude for all the gnome-y goodness I found here and I can hardly wait to see the rest of the family as they unfold and to read their stories as well!

  6. I LOVE your blog and the fantastic things that you make! This new doll is wonderful – will we be getting a tutorial on how you put her together???

    1. The answer is "yes"… eventually. I am working on a whole family, and will probably wait until they are all done. Unfortunately, tutorials can take as long to do as the actual craft, and each and every time you write a tutorial, you need to think through the process. It will simply be more efficient for me to do them all at once. But feel free to get excited. I've already made sketches, and each is adorable. Plus, someone suggested making grandparents. On it 🙂

      1. Hi KImara,
        I got the link to your knight and quire tutorial from ‘A Child’s Dream’ and that reminded me of the dollhouse people you did a few years ago, did you ever come out with a tutorial or patterns for these dollhouse bendy dolls? Thanks so much for sharing all your muse, it’s like a treasure hunt on your sight so many fun ideas 🙂

  7. These are absolutely WONDERFUL, and we thank you for all of the beautiful, lovely, adorable items that you share with us. We are devoted (albeit infrequently commenting!) followers. We’ve used your homeschool companion guides and craft ideas, and recipes, and the list goes on and on for the ways in which you inspire us. Warmest regards, Mea.
