Ondeugend jongetje / Naughty little boy

Patricia van www.woolytalesminiatures.blogspot.com gaf mij een poosje geleden de opdracht om kleding voor haar popjes te maken, hemeltjelief, wat een eer! Patricia was er van overtuigd dat ik het kon, maar ik vroeg me af of me dat wel zou gaan lukken…..omdat deze popjes zo klein zijn.  
Dus ongeveer een maand geleden ontving ik per post een doos, waarin zich een paar miniatuur popjes en allerlei stofjes, lintjes, kantjes etc. bevonden. Deze arme kindertjes kwamen helemaal uit de USA naar Nederland gereisd…….in hun blootje ;)!

A while ago Patricia of www.woolytalesminiatures.blogspot.com commissioned me to sew some clothes for her miniature dolls, good heavens, what an honor! Patricia was convinced that I could do that job, but I really asked myself if it was possible to do so……because these dolls were so tiny.
So, about a month ago I received by mail a box with a few miniature dolls and small pieces of fabrics, ribbons, pieces of lace and so on. These poor little kids came all the way of the USA to The Netherlands……in their birthday suit ;)!

Vorige week ben ik voorzichtig begonnen met het kleine jongetje dat in de doos zat, ik dacht dat jongens niet zo moeilijk zouden doen……..nou, dat heb ik geweten.

Last week I carefully started with the little boy who was in the box, I thought that boys wouldn't be so difficult…….well, now I know better.


Kijk eens naar die joekel van een speld en cocktailprikker!
Look at that huge pin and the toothpick!


Eerst heb ik een jeans voor hem genaaid, iets wat pas na 3 pogingen lukte. Hij heeft zelfs kontzakjes, die open zijn om iets in te kunnen doen.

First I sewed a jeans for him, after 3 attempts I succeeded to make one. The jeans even has pockets on the back side, which are open for keeping stuff in them.


Hierna heb ik een t-shirtje voor hem genaaid, dat ging ook nog wel. Maar toen ik hem daar over heen een bloesje wilde aantrekken, zag het er te volumineus uit, tja, wat nu? Nou, je knipt het gewoon in stukken en je gebruikt alleen de voorkant op de pop.

After that I sewed a T-shirt for him, that was also easy to do. But when I did put a blouse over the shirt, it looked much too bulky, well, what to do now? Well, you just cut the T-shirt in pieces and you only use the front on the doll.


Het bloesje is op de zoompjes na genaaid en kan uitgetrokken worden. Ik heb er een borstzakje opgeplakt en enkele knoopjes.

The blouse is sewed except for the seams and it can be pulled off. I’ve glued on a small breast pocket and some tiny buttons.


Ik heb dagenlang geprobeerd om een patroontje van schoentjes te vinden dat ik kon gebruiken, maar helaas niet gevonden. Dat betekent dat ik ze zelf moest zien te maken, dat is niet zo gemakkelijk. Ik heb ze op stof geprint en dan aan zijn voetjes vastgelijmd (na overleg met Patricia).

For days I’ve tried to find on the internet an usable template for shoes, but unfortunately I couldn’t find one. It did mean that I should make them myself, that wasn’t that easy. I’ve printed them on fabric and then they are glued on his little feet (after consultation with Patricia). 


Zijn voetjes zijn slechts 13 mm lang, hijzelf is bijna 9 cm hoog, kijk zelf maar.
His little feet are just 13 mm long, the boy is nearly 9 cm in height, see for yourself.



Ook de zolen van de schoentjes zien er ‘gebruikt’ uit, dat vond ik een leuk geintje, want je ziet ze nooit: hij staat er toch op ;? Vanwege de nieuwe sneakers moest ik van hem zijn broekspijpen oprollen…..wat een ijdel manneke, hè?

Also the soles of the shoes look like they have been ‘used’, I just love a little joke, because you never will see the soles: he stands on them, right ;)? Because of his new sneakers he said to me I had to roll up his trousers…..ah, what a vain little man, huh?


Maar dan…….eenmaal voorzien van schoenen nam hij de benen en verdween van mijn werktafel ;)! Kijk hier heb ik hem net ‘gevangen’ om nog even voor de foto’s te poseren :D!

But then……once he got his sneakers he ran away and disappeared of my work table ;)! Look here, I've just 'captured' him in order to pose for the pictures :D!




Hij hield niet van de nieuwe pet: te groot voor hem! Om te laten zien dat hij een echte kwajongen is, staat hij met zijn katapult maiskorrels naar mij te schieten…..nadat ik zoveel werk heb gehad om hem aan te kleden, stoute jongen!
Ik wil jullie bedanken voor jullie fijne reacties en ik wens jullie een fijn weekend/week!

He didn’t like his new cap: too large for him! To show that he is a real rascal, he stands to shoot with his slingshot corn kernels to me……after I've had so much work to dress him up, naughty boy!
I want to thank you all for your kind comments and I wish you all a nice weekend/week!

Ilona

Paula zei

Wat een prachtig jongetje is dat geworden; All Stars aan z'n voeten, katapult in zijn levensechte kontzak en een te grote pet met de klep in z'n nek.
Hij kijkt stout, maar gelukkig heeft hij een lieve moeder die ook de leuke kanten van 'm kent.
Ilona, wat heb je dat prachtig gedaan!!! Die andere popjes worden vast ook zo mooi!!

veel groeten van Paula

What a great combination! Patricia's dolls dressed by Ilona. Dear Ilona
it was fun reading your post. You
made the clothes exactly right for a
naughty but sweet little boy. The sling is a befitting last touch. I love the shoes!
Hugs, Drora

Hairy Caveman zei

Cool clothes! They suit him perfectly, and you make it all seem so easy to do! Lots of nice little details like the pockets and the dirty soles are excellent ideas, as is the catapult - every naughty boy should have one!
Kind regards, Brian.

The Old Maid zei

Oh I love both! The cute naughty boy and your clothes for him! Of course if I was to dress up so teeny doll i would glue everything on him, haha! So I do admire you're sewing for him!
Hope to see other dolls and their new clothes soon. :)
Hugs

JulieD zei

Hi Ilona,

You did a wonderful job, dressing the little rascal! I especially like the sneakers with their "worn" soles :-)

Cheers,
Julie

Simona zei

Wow Ilona!! You did a fantastic job and since I've worked with some 1:48 items, I now have a new found respect for people that make things so small.....the smaller, the more difficult!! I really can't imagine how to cut, sew and put on such small items....Very very well done to you!! Big hug!

BiWuBär zei

I'm really wondering now... did I ever ask aloud if there is anything you can't do??? *LOL* Patricia came to the right adress to give the finishing touches to her little boy - you've worked one of your Ilona-miracles on every single detail, for example the dirty worn soles that is soooo you... because you're never forgetting to make it realistic. Wonderful work... and I can only hope that Schepje will have a word or two with this little rascal now - throwing with corn at you with a slingshot... shocking!!! ;O)

Hugs
Birgit

Wow Ilona you done a fantastic job on this naughty little boy. Your work is amazing and I could believe that this little terror has run off and is firing kernels at you lol. I love the shoes and the slingshot. Patricia knew what she was doing asking you :)
Hugs Maria

Hannah zei

I often have to use the word wow, looking at your blog ;) And here I go again! WOW!
How ambitious to make pockets that actually can hold things and can be opened! Amazing work! I love the worn shoes too! I think clothes are so hard to make in miniature, but you manage to make perfect ones, not bulky like my attempts =)

Isabel Ruiz Alonso zei

El muñeco es precioso y la ropa le queda genial.

Elizabeth S zei

Ilona you are Amazing! This little fellow is so well dressed in these casuals but the sling shot in his back pocket indicates that he is not as angelic as he would have us imagine.! hah! The color of his T-shirt and the plaid over-shirt is so good and so are the jeans and THE SNEAKERS! Honestly, these clothes are Made to Measure Marvelous :D

Ilona, I can see why she asked you to sew the clothes! You make it look so easy... but we know it is Not!!! They are perfect on him! I am trying to sew more little clothes myself... so I know how hard it is to make them not be too bulky! You did an awesome job! Those little shoes are Unbelievable!!! And you even made them Dirty!!! Your work is Just Perfect!!!

Pippibär zei

What a naughty rascal! Seine Kleider sind alle perfekt (natürlich!) aber seine Schuhe... WOW! Die sehen so echt aus. Sogar ein bisschen schmutzig. Das ist so realistisch Die Schuhe von meinen beiden Söhnen sind auch IMMER schmutzig (aber ein bisschen mehr) Das muss bei Jungs wohl so sein...
Great work... as always!
