Happy 9th Year Anniversary

Angie is my former schoolmate. She likes the wedding dolls I've made and wanted one pair for her own collection. I was so excited and without hesitation, I also include her two lovely children though she only asked for a pair of wedding dolls. ;)

I have not seen her for many years. The last time I saw her was after graduating from high school, well, that was more than 17 years ago! Most of our friends left home to pursue their studies and then settled down with their loved ones overseas. Hence, we hardly see each other again. But thanks to social media, such as FACEBOOK, we are able to stay in touch.
Happy 9th year anniversary, Angie. May God bless you and your family with abundant love, happiness & good health!

Best Friends Forever....

Our best selling best friends forever dolls. The dolls are dressed in colorful poms poms. This is one of our best selling dolls. The doll is measured at 9cm. The dolls are really cute! I love their pom pom dress... 

This set of BFF dolls are made for SC and her BFF. They were in their favorite colors and I've made a small crown for each of them.

Previously, I've made another set of 3 for Dot and her BFFs. The dolls were differentiated by their favorite colors & hairdos.

Bei Bei in Angelic Kitty

SH showed me a little baby doll she bought from Taiwan, but the doll is made of plastic and quite big. She wanted a smaller version (approx. 9cm or smaller) so that she can hang it on her bag. The doll is in Kitty costume. 

I have to use thinner yarn in order to achieve the size. Hence, I've chosen Japanese cotton yarn that I got from my good friend, Betsy, founder of Knotty Bicsie. Her shop sells quite a wide range of yarns. 

I've managed to make it at approx. 7cm (height)! Isn't it CUTE! After looking at it, I decided to name it Bei Bei (贝贝), means little precious in Mandarin. Bei Bei is 100% crochet doll with plastic beads eyes. It has little curl on it's forehead.

I'm so happy that SH loves it so much! Yay! Do you want to see more Bei Bei?

Collaboration with local artist, Little Odd Forest

I had a fruitful meeting this afternoon with Lynda, founder of Little Odd Forest. More collaboration projects are coming our way! YAY!

Our collaboration projects with LOF. It started with cushion cover. Aprox. 20cm by 20cm cushion cover with crocheted animal flaps. We did the raccoon, which is the favorites and was sold almost immediately on the 1st day of STGCC 2013 (Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Convention 2013), fox and owl.

Available at Little Odd Forest online store


Due to demand for crocheted bag, a customer requested us to customize the crocheted flap for her messenger bag! Isn't it cute! 

Our next collaboration project was kiss lock crocheted purse. A very challenging project that took us quite sometime to finalize the yarns and the design. We did numerous prototypes just to get it right! Countless!! But at the end of the day, the accomplishment has given us great satisfaction! 

We did two animals for the kiss lock purse; Raccoon and Fox. Our plan was to launch it during STGCC 2014, however, Lynda had a soft launch to take in pre-orders. Guess what! The response was so overwhelmed that we sold almost all our purses and left only 4! 

Don't you think the purse is cute! Oops... They are not listed online yet. If you are keen, please drop us an email at  info[at] or julshandmade[at]

I'm so excited on our next collaboration! All I can say is, challenging! But yet, something unique and oh!-so-cute-I-want-it product! Are you following our Facebook Fan Page? Stay tuned with us as we update on our FB page regularly!

 All violators shall risk offending all mystical fantastical critters & eternal banishment from the forest.

Classic Wedding Dolls 2014

Few more wedding dolls to add into 2014 collections soon. These were some that we did this year. We put in a lot of effort in our wedding dolls; our hearts and souls... :) We want it to be perfect, hence we look into every details of the dolls. Elaine crochets most of the body parts and I design the dolls. Our designs are inspired by our lovely customers. Aren't they beautiful?

Our greatest joy and satisfaction is seeing that huge, bright grins from these lovely couples when they collected their dolls. 

Feel free to drop us an email at julshandmade[at] for inquiry. Help us to share our dolls to spread our handmade.
