48. The doll's dream

First thing in the morning Tosia-Reddie asked me a question. It was about colours.
"What is your favourite colour? - she asked.
I was just thinking what to answer when Tosia-Reddie said. 
"As for me I like PINK. It is the loveliest colour on our planette."
Then she looked critically at herself and sighed deeply, because she had no pink clothes at all. Not a single item.
" You do not like this colour, do you?" - she glanced at me.
"No, why..." - started I - I like pink, but in small doses... I think."
Tosia-Reddie continued. - "When one looks at pink flowers with green leaves, they are so beautiful... I need a pink scarf or shoes or just a bootee. It's my dream."

"Well, if pink is your favourite colour, let's try and make something. Perhaps we should start with the bootees. They are easy to make." - I said.
And so I made her pink bootees using a LesPouPz pattern.

Then I decided to make her a new dress with pink little flowers and green leaves. I embellished it with a pinkish lace and two vintage mother of pearl buttons afterwards. It looked pretty and simple. 
Since I had a white corduroy with a delicate floral pattern I thought I might use it for bloomers.

A combination of pink and green is pretty I thought. (Well, nature probably does its best.) May I decide on a pink scarf and green hat? Well, as you will see I have made a warm shawlette in the end.

I saw a look of rapture on Tosia-Reddie's face. She saw a stack of CDs on the table. There are lots of them since we often listen to music. The dolly climbed up the pile and sat comfortably on the top swinging her legs with satisfaction.

Tosia-Reddie's dream came true.
("Pretty in pink" collection helped me get an idea.)


Tosia-Reddie is 14 inches tall. She is all made from natural high quality materials: a special swiss cotton jersey designed for dollmakers, clean washed sheepswool, hand embroidered face and certified mohair boucle for hair specially produced for doll making. I made her hair by crocheting the bouclez-loop cap with the use of Agnieszka Nowak's technique (Lalinda). Tosia-Rudzia comes with two sets of clothing. They are made from natural good quality materials: cotton, corduroy, velvet, wool and a combination of cotton and bamboo yarn. And she has a little basket for collecting treasures.

Tosia-Reddie has already found a lovely home where she will get lots of love from her new little friends.


Thank you for dropping by. Have a good day!


  1. As I have already said, she is really cute. I'm glad you made her happy with her pink shoes, pink scarf and green hat. I love the fact that she can sit properly without any help.

    1. Really? Tosia is the first doll of this kind I made. I am glad you have noticed it.
      Thank you very much for your comment.
      My best wishes,

    1. She'll be much loved as it is a home with three children wanting to play.
