It Started with a message on FaceBook.

The dolls at the child minding centre didn't have any clothes..   Oh dear... can't have that .. Sooooo.
singlet, undies and hat.
Into the craft room I ran, rummaging through yarn and looking for needles and a pattern or two . I found some very old patterns and started knitting :))  AND..
.......It was on  Aussie Maria's blog I was reading about all those cute little patterns for babies and it struck me to make a" hug me tight "for the doll..

pretty cute .
It was so easy to make and looks so cute in pink.

I crocheted the cap, just a smaller version of an adults pattern..  it was a lot of fun . So at least now one of the dolls has clothes... :))
Cheers everyone, and thank you for stopping by and leaving lovely comments.. I will see you at your place :))

An excuse to knit doll's clothes (as if you really need one) what fun. Congratulations on the hug-me-tight, so easy for little fingers to put on a doll.

What a great thing to do Patta's. Dolls clothes is about all I can handle to make as I get too impatient with bigger items.

Dolly looks lovely...

That's such a nice thing to do Pat - just think of the little girl with a smile on her face who will love dressing up her dolly. :)

So cute, and a fantastic idea, and so clever to adapt for a doll. I really want to make this pattern too.
Funny cause I just made a Sleeveless Hug-Me-Tight from the vintage patterns
