My Bio
I have always loved making things, the smaller the better, out of paper, felt, fabric and string, starting with furniture for the fairies in my garden and sleeping-bags for my teddies. Over the last six years I've developed my crochet skills, and now make micro-crochet poseable dolls based on characters from history and fiction. All dolls are available by commission through my Facebook page, crochetbycalla.

Thank you, lovely deviantArt people for your wonderful responses to my little crocheted dolls. Some of you have been asking if I do commissions, and the answer is yes! (Although it can be a wrench parting with my creations, even though I know they are treasured in their new homes.) Prices change depending on accessories and how complicated their hair is, but by all means, send me a note if you're interested and we can talk specifics (or hypotheticals)!  The dolls take me at least five hours to make, often closer to seven or eight, and I don't usually complete them in one sitting.  I use stranded DMC cotton which I separate into single strand

I love back story.  I love that wonderful moment moment when you're reading, and suddenly something is revealed, something which happened ten, twenty years previously, sometimes before the main character was even born, but which  is now affecting their life, or the lives of the people around them... that is the moment when the author proves that their universe exists.  That their characters are real people, who have family and friends.  That they have lived entire lives outside the pages of the main plot, and they have done things or said things which even now are impacting the events you are reading about.  Harry Potter first introduced me t

Katniss 2.0

0 min read
So I've had a pretty awful week, all up.  Last Monday, I lost my Katniss doll, which I had foolishly left in my bag.  I think it fell out on the train, and it caused me much grief.  I've nearly finished a replacement, but the original is gone forever, and I can't begin to tell you how devastated I am about that.  I hope someone found her and has given her a good home.  I figure she's too cute to not have been adopted, so with any luck she's on someone's desk, or in some small child's possession making them very happy. On top of this, I have come to the realisation that I am not enjoying one of my classes.  In fact, I will go so far as to say

Hello! I hope you don't mind my posting on your page today! I'd like to invite you to a brand new group; Pop Culture Crochet. I'd love to make this group a hub for all things crochet with a pop culture spin and I think some of your items would find the perfect home there.
 :happybounce:  Please, help me get this group off the ground!
Happy birthday! :cake:
I love your miniature work. Any chance you'd give me some direction in trying to make minis of my very own? Type of yarn? Hook size?
Sure thing! I started off with a 1.5mm crochet hook and six strands of DMC embroidery cotton, then went down to two or three stands and a 1mm hook, and then down to one strand and a 0.75 or 0.6 mm hook for my little tiny dolls. Creepy Cute Crochet is a good place to start, and some of the patterns are online. Good luck!
Happy birthday! :iconrainbowbummiecakeplz:
