Fancy Doll Socks, hand tatted navy lace, navy ankle socks for 18" doll
These home sewn Bobby socks are so fun to make as I think about the little girls who are always so thrilled when they receive such pretty socks for their doll. The socks fit any 18 inch doll, which is the size of American Girl Dolls. It's quite feasible that they also fit other doll sizes. These miniature ankle socks have my hand made navy blue tatted lace along the dark blue bobby socks and are unique and girly. I tat the lace on a fine needle using rings, chains and pecots similar to how I make the girls, toddler and infant "Princess" socks. When I decrease the size of the pattern the lace ends up to be quite a bit smaller, and so to get enough stretch for ease in putting the socks on, the lace is tatted first and then hand stitched onto the socks as an edging. These doll socks really do make any doll's outfit complete!
The delicate lace edging is durable and so pretty - great for the number of times your daughter changes her doll's clothes! The weight of thread and the size of lace makes it stand out a bit from the navy bobby socks for the perfect accessory to any doll fashions.
Most doll shoes are easy to put on over these thin socks, although they still are thick enough at the rim to appear as if the top sock edge is folded over, even though it is actually just a single layer. The stretch is perfect to hold them up and on, and they are easily pulled on and off by any child, too. Care instructions are included with these socks, and are pretty simple (machine washable). Just a tip when laundering any socks with lace on them, putting them in a netted bag really does protect them from snags, and it prevents these miniature sized socks from going missing!
The pair of doll socks in this listing are navy ankle socks with a blue lace edging. When my #2 daughter saw this style of socks for dolls that I was making, she asked if I would make her doll two pairs, one in blue and one in light pink lace. If you would like a certain color for your little girl, please let me know by sending me a message, using the button on the bottom that says "click to contact the Seller". I really enjoy doing special requests and would love to tat up a pair that would be perfect for your daughter and her doll.
I do lightly stiffen all my lace, and on such small lace it does help to slightly stiffen it to aid in sewing the lace to the small socks. This may relax after use and washings, but won't change the integrity of the cotton lace itself.
Note: Doll, Doll Clothing or Doll Shoes are not included or for sale - just the socks only :)

I cannot recommend Wendy and her family highly enough! Wendy's tatted items look beautiful in the photos, but my earrings that came which she custom made to my size requirement are just gorgeous! I will enjoy wearing this lightweight and lovely design over and over, I'm sure. Just exquisite work and quality!
My wooden spatula made by David, Wendy's 13-year-old son, is fantastic! It has a thicker handle than some of my spatulas and that makes it so much easier to hold and grip with my stiff arthritic hand...what a blessing! And the quality is top-notch as well. Obviously is quite committed to providing quality designs, just like his mother.
My many communications with Wendy regarding my order prior to purchase and then throughout purchase and receipt were exceptionally pleasant! It is obvious the Wright Family are interested in taking good care of their customers, as well as providing beautifully crafted items of the highest quality. I could not be happier and hope to order more "stuff" from the Wrights in the future!
Wendy, I LOVE the earrings. Can't wait to wear them. Thanks so much!
This handmade wooden spatula is all that I had hoped for. It's both lovely and functional. The grain is beautiful and the unique labor intensive sanding process makes for a satiny smooth surface. I like the extra touch of the leather hanging loop. I just used it for the first to saute garlic and olive oil and the design fits beautifully in my hand. Thank you for a special product, exceptional customer service, careful packaging and fast shipping.
