Baby Bear Lovey

Well as I mentioned before I added a new item to my Lovey Collection!  I had a customer ask for this sweet bear!  It was my first time making one and I have to say I’m pretty happy with her!  What do you think of the New Sleepy Bear Lovey?  I’ve got a few more coming out soon!

I may just have to try out some different color combinations too!  Any suggestions? I’m thinking I need to add a baby boy bear too! HMMM…..maybe with a baseball cap? Well as always thanks for stopping by!
Happy Craftin’

Crocheted Dodger Girl

I’m baaackk…..Told you I’d be back sharing my latest creation!

Dodger Girl 1I was inspired to make my Doll by many Doll Makers but I have to say the 1st doll that inspired me was from a gal named Aniqua Wilkerson from “My Kinda Thing” on Facebook then I saw another doll from Dee Dee from “Off D’Hook Creations” also on Facebook they both were such an inspiration to me as I hadn’t done Amigurumi in years and seeing their creations got that creativity flowing and I pulled out a Bunny I had sitting around for awhile which you can see HERE!

Anyway seeing their Beautiful Dolls inspires this one!  I have to say I’m “Extremely Proud” of myself! I’ve been waiting to bring this girl to life for some time now! Before I introduce you I’ve got to say this – Besides the Shoes (The Crochet Crowd) & the Flower in her hair – I made her up as I went along!
