So my first pattern for Unoa is ready! I’m so excited and happy. I love “bump” stitches like bubbles, and these tucks, the squared version of bubble, give the sweater a strong twist.
For the moment, the sweater is for small chest only, but a big chest version will be available soon.

Where can you get it?

You can find Tip Tucks in my Etsy shop or, if you like knitting, you can purchase the pattern on Ravelry.

A little spa for Nina Dillon

Posted by in Blythe


Today my Nina Dillon had a little spa. She’s a Kenner Blythe form 1972 and she still needs may attention, especially for her hair, I just washed them one with fabric conditioner, but they’re still so fuzzy :-(



I used some Peral Drops for two yelllow spots she has on her forehead, but no success at all, maybe I should have left it on her more time.


Anyway, she’s such a beauty!



Let me introduce Nina Dillon

So my first Kenner Blythe is here! She’s muche better in real life than in the auction’s picture. Her hair are frizzy but not as bad as I imaged. I think her legs have been replaced since there is a gap between them and the torso, anyway she has a quite big hole on the back of her knee. As I already knew, the lips have been repainted and I have to paint them again, sooner or later.


First thing to do is a good warm bath, and what’s better than a vintage Barbie’s bathtub?



A Kenner is on the way!

So, after more than 9 years in collecting Blythe, I finally had the chance to get a Kenner! Last night I won a redhead one on ebay. She will need some TLC, and now I’m looking for all the infos I need to restore this beauty.
As soon as she comes home, I’ll list all the issues she has and patiently begin the work. Can’t wait to have her at home with us. In the meanwhile, I’m thinking about the proper name.

I’m planning to sew something special just for her. Maybe I’ll knit a hat too, to be good looking even before the spa
And, of course, all my Blythe dolls will be dressed and ready to say hello to their older sister.
