18 years of sewing clothes for dolls
I started to sew doll clothes in 2004 and it's been a passion ever since.
It all started when I saw a site where someone had made a My Scene Chelsea into Lara Croft. I love Tomb Raider and I was amazed by her work. So I wanted to do the same. I never finished that Lara doll, but I started sewing other doll clothes. My first attempts was really bad because I couldn't make patterns. So I bought a book with Barbie patterns, and I was hooked.
At first my mother helped me a lot and we made new patterns and I started buying more dolls. Somehow I got the idea that I should try selling some clothes on Tradera (swedish site like Ebay), and they sold! I was so happy and it encouraged me to make more. For the money I got I bought new fabrics and materials. And the hobby started supporting itself.
Sometime in early summer 2005 I discovered Pullips, thanks to a regular customer who turned into a good friend. Before that I was only hooked by the clothes and sewing, but now I was also hooked by dolls. And I love it!
It was when I started sewing for Pullips that I changed name from "Dockans.com" to "KittenWalk" and made my site in english instead of swedish.
I have discovered many other dolls on the way, like Obitsu, Momoko and many types of BJDs.
The clothes in my shop are all made with lots of love and detail by me. It's important to me not only that they look good but also that they are of good quality so that they last long. Therefore I use only high quality materials. All ribbons are carefully melted at the ends so they don't fray.
Most of the clothes closes in back with super thin velcro, because it's important for me that the clothes look good in the back as well as anywhere else.
I'm the one who creates everything in my shop. I love to think up new clothes and designs and see them take form as I make a pattern, prepair and sew. But also to draw comics and paint. I live in Sweden with my kitties.
