My girls may be in their teens, but I know they share in the same love I do for a doll.
So with my g hook & oodles of leftovers from my stash of yarn...
...I got busy with crocheting a doll.
The pattern is from an old magazine that my great-aunt Bertha was tossing. I don't even remember the name of the magazine, but knew without a doubt I had to add this pattern to my crochet library.
Once I saw how adorable this whole ensemble worked out (and because I was flitting thru the house practically dancing with her) my older daughter
In her color scheme.
With of course, the cape, beret & hatbox.
And here she is.
I changed up the face and hair. And if you know a great tutorial for adding yarn hair, please let me know! This was a bit of a hit-and-miss with me. (read ---> an almost disaster.)
Regardless of maybe needing to improve the hair, I am pleased with how cute they both turned out.
