Description

A wonderful conversation with Eva Hovelsrød, doll clothing maker, artist and owner of Tirin & Katten on In The Doll World doll podcast. 

Eva shares with us a very different background coming into the doll world,  from a background  in computer science  for over years to doll clothing designer.  She  discovered dolls in 2013 via an interest in knitting, and was soon up past midnight most nights, working on doll-related projects.

The urge to make doll clothes took her by surprise--stating "I have never thrown myself quite like that into a hobby before. I found a very friendly and supportive online community.  Dolls are an outlet for all kinds of interests and I have tried a few, like wig making and shoemaking; but, I try to stick to sewing"

Eva started out sewing for Blythe dolls, but has lots of different dolls. Currently,  she sews most often for a Korean BJD brand called iMda.

​She is also eager to  help others experience the joy of making little garments!

"I am also passionate about usability, no doubt because of my background in computer science. When I put together tutorials, I aim for them to be accessible also to people without much sewing experience, while being clear and concise. I spend a lot of time on each tutorial. This causes me to put off making new ones, so I have an internal dialog going about how I can improve the process, and what kind of tutorials and patterns to make in the future."
