I believe @jurich90 crocheted the tiniest outfit on the earth. A bikini which would make a Blonde girl blush. A minuscule cover for the heat and the beach. I have no idea how she was able to calculate such a tiny thing that it worked out so perfectly.


Needleworkmonday: A Bag for a Barbie / Barbie-Tasche [Ger/Eng] (230 words)

by @muscara


𝙼𝚘𝚜𝚝 𝙸𝚗𝚝𝚎𝚕𝚕𝚎𝚌𝚝𝚞𝚊𝚕 𝙰𝚌𝚌𝚎𝚜𝚜𝚘𝚛𝚢

Did you also think to yourself “why is Barbie not studying, reading or working”? Why is she mostly riding, shopping or visiting a dance? Fear no longer because with @muscara’s knitted bag Barbie has no more excuses for not going into the library. She now has a stylish bag to carry masses of books home and to bury herself in some science.

𝙼𝚘𝚜𝚝 𝙻𝚞𝚡𝚞𝚛𝚒𝚘𝚞𝚜 𝙾𝚞𝚝𝚏𝚒𝚝

If you dream of pearls and diamonds, of sexy pink dresses and tiny clutches than @kattycrochet’s outfit is the one of your dreams. She created a figure-hugging gown with tiny diamonds and a stylish off-the-shoulder top. For me, her dress is the incarnation of all Barbie stands for...only better.

@jonalyn created a very special bridal dress for her Barbie, with a huge and wide skirt which accentuates the waist and drapes like a cloud. The all white dress with a fluffy edging reminds me of an ice princess and I can see this dress in an opulent romance of the 50ies.


My Needleworkmonday Entry for Barbie Outfit Contest by @needleworkmonday

𝙲𝚞𝚝𝚎𝚜𝚝 𝚂𝚑𝚘𝚎𝚜

@sarimanok designed for her clearly well-loved Barbie a whole outfit with very modern vibes. Neon yellow meets stark black in a short skirt and tiny laced top. But the most impressive garment in her ensemble are for me the lace shoes. These are so unique and inventive. They fit perfectly together with the lace detail on her Barbies top.

𝚈𝚘𝚞𝚗𝚐𝚎𝚜𝚝 𝙿𝚊𝚛𝚝𝚒𝚌𝚒𝚙𝚊𝚗𝚝

When looking at @kidstister’s floral Barbie outfit I dream myself at the beach, lounging in the sun and drinking tropical juices while reading an exciting novel. She along with her sister created a wonderful summerly and carefree outfit, and may I remark that I am amazed that they tackled this task all by themselves.

I couldn’t agree more!! What an inspiring week!! 🤩😍

Oh my gosh! It's like a virtual fashion show of barbie dresses! My eyes are heartshaped right now! 😍😍😍
Congratulations to all the winners and to everyone that joined!

Yes!! I love that!

virtual fashion show


That’s exactly what it is!! 😃

Excelente. Me encanta ver todas las creaciones muy bien descritas en una sola publicación. Estoy fascinada. Muchas gracias por permitirnos exponer nuestros trabajos. Felicidades a todas. ¡Congratolations!

So glad you loved the compilation! Thank you for being involved :)

Beautiful contest, I loved seeing all the projects, they were so beautiful 😍😍😍. Thanks @needleworkmonday team for organizing it! And congratulations to the first prize @jicrochet, I'm very happy for you, I loved your project, I got so excited when I saw it hahahaha. You deserve it ❤️. And thanks @neumannsalva for choosing my project in the top 3 💛

Congratulations to all, you are great needle artists ❣️.

It was fun putting them all together in one place to enjoy! 😃😉😍

Thank you for all of your support and participation ~

Gracias Lau, que bella, me conmueven tus palabras. Este reto se convirtió en un encuentro de arte...Todo muy hermoso.

It is a pride for me to share in this wonderful community, you manage to get the best of each one of us. Thank you very much for the award, that only indicates to me that we are doing well and it motivates me to keep going. God bless you.

I'm so glad to hear that! Yes @neumannsalva did a Stupendous job on curating and giving each entrant the perfect title and description! ❤️

Please do keep going!! Your work is very inspiring ~ 😘

Loved this post.

So much cool barbie stuff.

Liked those black sandals, went to the original post to see the whole outfit. Barbie was missing her arms! LOL. Some of our barbies don't have heads but that's a different story.

Yeees, the head thing, My husband told me he had an action man (kind of male Barbie) and his sister pulled the head of 😱


Those Barbie Heads wind up in different places.

So glad you enjoyed the compilation @metzli!! 😘

Lol! Oh the fun that many Barbies have had losing limbs in our home growing up. 😬🤭😅 I guess it shows how much love and playtime they really had. 😂

A great greeting to this wonderful community #NeedleWorkMonday, 😍I am super grateful for this opportunity and the Magic that comes up in me every time I share a little piece of my essence with you, through my creations.

I started reading the post very excited, while I was reading it I felt like I was in the presence of a beauty contest, the way the publication was narrated was wonderful, the majesty of each work was highlighted. Really each work of my needlework partners is reflected in love and learning in my life. Congratulations to everyone, I loved everything...

As I continued to read, excited and moved by every word, I get that my work was the winner of this challenge, I really feel blessed by such a distinction, thank you... thank you. I feel like the fairy, as many will call my creation, I feel flying and happy that this creation has brought tenderness and color to each of you,

Thank you @needleworkmonday for your continued support.

This has been a great experience...See you on Monday. I have not yet started something to share, surely my heart will guide me to do something beautiful and worthy of all.

Hugs and blessings.😘

Felicidades Ji por ganar el primer lugar, muy merecido. Tu traje nos lleno de fantasía a todas en la comunidad. Gracias por compartir.

Gracias Katty, me alegra mucho que les haya llenado de fantasía y lo hayan disfrutado. Siempre es un gusto compartir con la comunidad NeedleWorkMonday.

Feliz fin de semana. Hasta la próxima puntada.

Love this...

until next stitch



I was so amazed and happy when I saw your design. I already wrote it to you, but again: I love the tiny hat and the antennas. I found your design was not only beautifully crafted it also lifted me up and made me smile very hard. Thank you <3

Thank you for your appreciation and for valuing my work, and that you liked it, and especially that it made you smile. Happy weekend.

We hope you keep sharing that magic and joy for creating because it is truly inspiring.

The work done by each participant was truly wonderful and deserved their own special highlight.

Congratulations on your win! It was such a brilliant and intriguing design and brought on many smiles. Keep up the great work! Looking forward to seeing many more of your creations ~ ❤️

It gives me satisfaction, it leaves me moved that my work has filled him with smiles, that, my true prize. You have made me very happy... Thank you for your support. Until the next stitch

Awesome outfits! Congratulations to the winners too. What a grand parade of Barbie outfits from her bikinis to the wedding ceremony! I really love this community. Thanks to the admins! You did an awesome job. We have developed a tie that bind us together as one community. Great!

It surely was a grand parade! 😍

We love you too! Thank you for sharing the love and always being involved here ~ ❤️

We definitely have a strong bond here within this community and it really is a beautiful thing to be apart of ~ ☺️

Esta compilación es simplemente genial, concuerdo con que parece un desfile de modas virtual, que orgullo pertenecer a esta comunidad tan creativa, mucho arte en todas las creaciones, cada una tan impresionante como hermosa. Difícil y arduo trabajo para el jurado, pero todas las distinciones están muy merecidas. Gracias por tan magnifica descripción de mi traje, Kalany está super feliz🤭, tanto ella como yo quedamos con ganas de más concursos como este. Gracias a mis compañeras por compartir sus patrones y felicidades a los ganadores!!! Congratulations my needleworker friends 🤗🥂

Yes!! There is so much art filled in each creation!

The decision didn’t come easy because of all the wonderful work that was presented. So glad you and Kalany are happy! I agree that the description of your work was magnificent! So grateful for our judge ~


Well deserved 1st place and very nice all the designs. At first, I was also going to design a dress (for a change), but there were sudden changes in the last few days.

I am so happy you did the colorwork sweater for a male doll. Its such a wonderful addition and so special <3 <3

Yes very glad you went with the design of the sweater! It was nice to see this variety!! 😊

This contest was such a wonderful idea. I think I have never seen so many different and amazing handmade outfits for Barbie at one place. I am especially surprised about the huge amount of crochet outfits (perhaps because it is not so common where I live) All are so wonderful and I now even more want a secret patron for needleworkmonday so that we can give even more (you know already, I dream of world domination through needlework 😂) I think this community is so supportive and creative and accomplished - I am speechless.

This was the Ultimate Barbie Showcase!! 😃😆🤩

It brings me speechless as well thinking about how far we’ve come and how well established and supported we are as a Community! It truly is heartwarming and I look forward every week to being here...supporting, sharing and having fun!!

Thank you for all that you do!! ❤️

Congratulations to all the participants, beautiful creations!!!

Now that you're here maybe you will be able to join the next contest with us?!! 😃🤩😉

If I hope to participate in the next contest, Thank you!!! 😍❤

Oh my God, congrats to everyone, you rock on babies.


Congrats to all! What a compilation of fashionable crochet outfit of Barbies! @neumannsalva surely choose the best, we have same choice with the design, stitches combined and the colorway used.

Thank you @jurich60! This was so much fun!
