i got this very cute dress from etsy http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=15809 but it didn't fit my pullip very well. so i did some alterations so that it could fit kemi. i opened the armholes all the way since kemi has large hands and opened up the back at least 1/2 way down to accommodate her head and added a snap. doesn't she look cute? it fits pretty good too!

this is charlie! i have been wanting to do a bigger amigurumi for awhile..so this is what i came up with..charlie! he is 8 1/4 inches tall from head to toe or 6 inches seated. this is entirtely my own pattern. so it took awhile to design and make up. he is made to look like he is wearing a union suit or long johns. tiny yellow buttons to complete the look. he also has a little red scarf. i just love him and want to keep him but i cannot keep every amigurumi i make :( so he is on etsy.. hope he finds a very nice home!
