Dachshund for all!    by Tibor   Date : 2010/11/03(Wed) 19:33    No.419    Hungary   
Thank you for your patterns Nuno! In particular the dachshund helped me out greatly when my kids asked for a stuffed dog.

Sorry about the neon pink fur, my daughter specifically requested a pink dog. Since I am a 36-year-old guy you can imagine the look on the shopkeepers' face when I went for the "Big Pink Fur Hunt". :) Fortunately my son has a more manly taste and was satisfied with a short-haired brown version.

Thank you again for the other patterns as well, I will surely do some of those too.

Here are also Sleepy the cat and William the bunny. I made the cat for my son's 2nd Christmas and the bunny for my daughter's. Unfortunately I don't have the skills to design my own patterns so I made them from a very good Hungarian book.

I love this design. It is simple to sew and great to look at. Kids love it. I improvised a little by cutting the eyes and nose out of sticker kumkum (bindi), and soaking embroidery thread in a thick starch solution to make whiskers. Thank you very much, Runo.

Thanks very much Runo    by Frances   Date : 2010/07/24(Sat) 12:18    No.398    Mexico   
I live in Mexico and I would like to thanks a lot Runo for sharing his beautiful creations and tehcniques to all us. When I found his page I fall in love of his work and appreciate very much the generosity and the opportunity he gave me and everyone with have this passion to learn from him because not many people usually like to share their knowledgement. I send a picture of one of my dolls, Bruno Trebolin, I inspired on my son. I would like to send more but only one can be sent. Thanks a lot Runo, I love you!!

I love Runo's works, all of them are really particular, and it's very nice to have the patterns.
Cathy is my first doll made on a pattern, and my sixth doll.
I like marmaid dolls too, I'm making one, but the face will be in cold porcelain

Forte (from Rockman)    by TheGeekyOne   Date : 2010/04/06(Tue) 07:52    No.367    England   

I just wanted to say thankyou so much for your patterns, Runo - I have learned so much from them.

Here is a picture of a doll that I made - he is Forte, a robot from the Rockman video games that are made by Capcom Co., Ltd..

He was made completely by hand, and took two years to finish (I wanted to make sure that he was perfect). The dolls with him are officially-manufactured Rockman dolls - I did not make them.

To make Forte, I used a slightly modified version of the head pattern from the Tall Boy Doll pattern, and a larger body that was based on the Nekomimi Doll body pattern. I made all of the other parts of the pattern by myself.

I wrote some more about him on my website - .

I hope everyone likes him.

he's amazing! ^^ um, i have a few questions. did you use the tall boy pattern, how did you do the hair, and did you make the clothes? if not, where did you get them?

Second Born    by Aeroai   Date : 2010/06/10(Thu) 16:52    No.379    USA   
This was the second doll i ever made. I made her about.... four years ago. I was deeply inspired by you, Runo. I wanted a doll that was positionable, and could have clothes changed. This is the second one I ever made, and she was hand sewn, with no pattern. I have made many more, and will post photos of them later.

Kimono Doll "Tomoko"    by Nadine   Date : 2010/05/11(Tue) 20:21    No.374    Germany   
Your pattern for the Kimono Doll was very helpful.
Mine didn't work out quite as beautifully as yours (crippled hands, arms too long, legs uneven) but I still like her very much.
I'm still working on a kimono (haven't found suitable cloth yet), but for the time being I made her a Yukata that I think is very pretty. ^__^

Ewe Hogg    by Lizardie   Date : 2008/11/23(Sun) 21:35    No.233    Italy, Russia   
Once upon a time I decided to put everything in order in my "treasury" (the place where I keep my doll-making staff). Almost hopeless business, by the way. I noticed that two fabrics - light grey curly acrylic and dark grey wool go very well with each other. Actually, that time I planned to make quite another toy, but I was so exited by the harmony of the combination of these two fabrics, that I started to make this Ewe immediately (even gave up to make up my "treasury").

The height of the sheep is 15 cm. The hoofs are made from wood. She has got a tiny glass pendant. I really like her eyes. They are shining from "inside", from the very bottom. I managed to make them by myself. Frankly speaking, I found out the way of making such kind of eyes by accident.

The Ewe is a bit fat, but very tender with sweet expression of big shining eyes with long eyelashes.

Re: Ewe Hogg - Berna    2009/03/22(Sun) 02:13   No.258    South Africa
Im very interesting about the eyes? What did you do to let it shine from the inside? And what patron did you used? I would love to make one myself. Thanks for sharing your talents with us.

I made this doll using kimono doll patterns and she is nice. I couldn't make the fingers separately because I couldnt'n find the right material, but she is nice anyway, thanks a lot for your lovely patterns.
