Who doesn’t love a big, cozy cardigan? This one’s got cables and a lovely shawl collar. It’s perfect for layering to make your Blythe’s cool-season ensemble complete!
This month I participated in a swap – as usual, for Blythe, but this time specifically for a 12×12″ quilt. This swap originated in an online group for Blythe sewing enthusiasts and I was super geeked to see it. I’ve been thinking of making a Blythe-sized quilt for some time and this was the perfect excuse!
My partner and I have swapped before so we kind of know each other’s tastes a bit, which made this so much fun. Here’s a video of me unwrapping the quilt she sent me (also includes pics of the one I sent to her).
It’s not that easy to find clothes for Petite Blythe, and I’m always looking for separates that I can switch up, so I made this cute little wrap skirt pattern. It’s super easy and knits up in just a few minutes – make one in every color!
It’s summer and hot and definitely perfect weather for popsicles.
Popsicles are the classic summer treat, and this sweater is a tribute to their awesomeness!
Everyone loves a Weasley sweater.
If you don’t have your very own Molly Weasley to send you one at xmas, use this pattern to make one for Blythe! Blythe’s initial B is front and center and you can make it in your own Hogwarts House Colors or whatever colors you like!
As much as I love not spending time dealing with snow during the warmer months in Michigan, sometimes I do love thinking about cold snowy days when it’s 80F+ and it’s too humid to feel cozy. That inspired this Big Love Sweater for Blythe, which has a cozy ribbed turtleneck and is slightly oversized for getting that snug as a bug in a rug feeling.
This is another super quick to make sweater for Blythe. I just can’t get over how quickly it goes with fingering weight yarn!
The latest Blythe swap theme was Blythe is a Bookworm. What a perfect theme for me! I had a lot in common with my partner, also a librarian, and also a fan of Harry Potter and lots of other reading things. Here’s a peek at what I sent:
I made some dresses and a sweater for Kate’s Blythes:
Doesn’t this sweater seem like something Molly Weasley would wear? #goals
And I made the tiniest cross stitch ever, on 28 count fabric.
Amiibo figure for scale (figure is 2″ high).
I’m still shaking my head at my hubris taking on a project on this tiny scale. I now own a magnifier, though, so that should be useful for future miniature crafts. And I’m so pleased with how it turned out, so it was super worth it.
AND, here’s what I received!
Thanks so much, Kate! This was such a fun swap!
Badass women will always be my fave, and I designed a sweater to give Blythe the ability to advertise her own eff yeah feminism (I would SO wear this if I was patient enough to make it in my size!).
Or cat dudes! Do you love cats? Or maybe even just the cute cats of the internet?
This sweater is so easy to knit up – it’s super quick with the fingering weight yarn and the stranded cat motif is charted to make working it a snap. It’s designed to fit Blythe but may fit other dolls with similar bodies.
