Micro-crochet Esmerelda  by honouraryweasley
Micro-crochet Esmerelda
Here's my Esmerelda from Disney's 'The Hunchback of Notre-Dame'. She's just a smidge over 7cm tall (that's 2 3/4 inches) and was crocheted with an 0.75mm crochet hook and single strands of DMC cotton. She has a wire armature, so she's fully poseable, and is stuffed with polyfill. I'm particularly proud of her gold jewellery, the edging on her shawl, and her tiny tambourine, which is removable! I also used a new technique for her hair, and was really pleased with the volume it created.

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 strands for my micro-dolls and stuff with threads of polyfill, while the larger dolls are stuffed with both polyfill and plastic beans for weight.  

I love experimenting and am open to any ideas you might have, so send me a note if you want an exact quote, or if you'd like to talk details for a potential commission.

Much love and gratitude to you all!

I'm twenty-five, like to travel, write and hobby-hop. 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. Origami is my long-term love, but more recently I've had a go at making dolls with historically accurate costumes. Amigurumi people and book characters are my current passion

Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Doctor Who and Merlin are my current (some long-term) geeky loves. I also love musicals and wizard rock.

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!
