After a summer break...

I carried on with the clean out in my little blue house and found a lot treasures which are now on ebay for you to grab - You can get them HERE

You will find lots of nice magazines (BURDA Puppenmode, Beyers, MEZ, Schürer, Schwanenpost) and intructions to sew, crochet and knit lovely things for Schildkröt, Kathe (Käthe) Kruse, Barbie and antique dolls. Don't miss my auctions!

It's really not easy to part from all these treasures I collected for a long time, but I plan to move and I am sure there will not be enough space for all the lovely things...

Hugs, yours Nicola

Blythe matryoshka carrier bags

One of the things I really loved to design and still love to sew, are my so called "matryoshka carrier bags" for Blythe dolls:

Dollily matryoshka bags

They are closed with a zipper, they have a soft stuffing to give the bag more shape and are lined with a nice plain fabric matching the rest of the pouch.

Sorry, Andrea but this is not your Sleepingsack... Someone feeling cozy ;)

All sacks are equipped with a face cover flap (in the colour of the headscarf) to protect your doll's face during the transport.

Feelin' cozy...

More picutres of the bags and the designs here in my flickt album. And if you want to order your own matryoshka Blythe pouche, please visit my etsy shop.

Have a nice weekend yours Nicola

Noemi - Dollily custom No. 8

My latest custom Noemi:

Noemi is looking for a new Mummy

FA is my OOAK Blythe custom. (Dollily custom No. 8) made by me Her base doll was a Fruit Punch in perfect condition. Her face mold is EBL and I think she has a kind of cheeky but shy & sweet personality. It´s really hard to part with her! She is made with great love and care.

Work I have done:
- Face plate sanded
- Carved lips, nostrils and philtrum and re-shaped nose
- Eyes boggled, gaze corrected and sleep-eyes
- She still owns her lovely EBL eyelashes and three of her original eyechips (orange, green and blue). One pair of eyechips was changed with Cool cat eyechips in beautiful dark blue
- Her eyemech works smooth with all her original eyechips, but it needs a little help with the new pair of eyechips – just a little push with your fingers
- Complete new face up with artist pastels and sealed with MSC matte
- Handmade new pullstrings in neon green with some sweet pearls and her original pullring on the other string
- Cut and corrected her fringe and bob

She comes with her original Blythe body and I will send her with one of my selfmade Dollily dresses. She will travel in her original Blythe box wrapped safely! 

Shipping costs DHL parcel (insured):
Germany: 6 € 
Member countries of the EU: 15 €
Insured shipping to the USA and the most other worldwide countries: 34 € 

I can ship her uninsured (on your own risk!!) This will be 6,- € world wide. 

Please ask for shipping costs or anything else, if you are not sure. Thank you! 

I’m asking $ 345,- or 275,- € (payment Paypal, I will accept bank transfer in Germany or other EU countries). No layaway, please only serious buyers! SOLD - Thank you :)

More picture of her in my flickr album:

Happy weekend, yours Nicola

Dollily - Blythe fashion & customs

The last two months I was really busy with Blythe :) 
I finished three customs (one of them an Icy doll - Blythe clone):

Mischa and her alter ego



Made a design for a sweet knitted dress with striped sleeves...

Ingredients for my doll designs

Dolls looking cute ♥

And sewed also some cute babydoll dresses from an awesome vintage 60s fabric I had in my stash. Wanted to do this for long... Yes, and also crocheted some Blythe bear helmets!

Blythe babydoll dresses

One finished, two for tomorrow...

I'm pretty happy with the outcome! Next project I'm working on is a complete outfit with a "the little red riding hood" -theme... But more about this later ;)

A few of the things shown here are available in my little etsy shop: Dollily fashion for Blythe - Some already sold, sorry!
