Barbie Furniture Gift Ideas

Okay so I am going back to my second childhood. I admit it. It's just too much fun!!!

I started designing Barbie Fashion Doll Furniture for my Artfire Shop and it just brought back so many memories of making Barbie Furniture for my daughter when she was young. That was 30 years ago, but the memories are so wonderful. Waiting until she was sound asleep then dragging out all my supplies to work on more fun things for Barbie.

Yes, I did usually stay up too late trying to finish another piece. But it was all worth it on Christmas Day when she saw her Barbie House with all the furniture.

The image of my daughter falling to her knees in front of her new Barbie house, screaming with delight when she first saw that doll house. Her excitement soared when I showed her how to turn on all the lights. Those are the moments we cherish, the moments that matter the most.

I am excited to introduce you to the new line of Collectible Crocheted Fashion Dolls available in my Artfire Shop. Each doll is designed and hand crocheted with lots of love and attention to detail. These fashion dolls are Whimsical Amigurumi Dolls that will delight any doll collector on your gift ideas Christmas shopping list.

I have crocheted for many years, so I felt brave enough to design these one of a kind Collector Fashion Dolls. Crocheting one from a pattern would be easy.
Unfortunately there are no written patterns available for this style doll. Creating my own design was the only answer. I spent many hours of trial and error until finally I was finally satisfied with the design.

The wonderful thing about this new line of Collector Dolls I am creating is they do not require a special doll stand. I designed these dolls to be easily displayed sitting on an empty soft drink or water bottle. Also the Dolls are fully posable.

It does take time to create each Doll but stop by my Artfire Shop often to see the new Dolls that I will be offering.
