Crocheted sisters Amelie and Mako and are ready for anything--a day at the beach, a birthday bash, a visit to the library--and their outfits are, too! In this book, popular Japanese amigurumi designer Miya takes you step-by-step through the dollmaking process, showing you how to create two charming doll companions, their teddy bear pal Marron, and 63 miniature wardrobe additions--ranging from warm winter coats to delicate ballet slippers.

Cozy, cold-weather wear for looking great on chilly days
Chic pants, tops, berets, or straw hats for a market-day-in-Paris vibe
Charming little tops, like a colorful ruffled tunic--great for a day at the beach
Clothes for ballet, cheerleading, and dress-up (be a flight attendant--or dance a hula!)
Tote bags, evening bags, and shoulder bags--you can never have too many!
And much more!
