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!

More Crocheted Little Mermaids

2nd Mermaid - 1So as promised here is the 2nd Mermaid Doll I made!  I really  like how she turned out too!  She’s absolutely perfect!

These are very addicting to make I do have to admit!

This is paid pattern which you can get HERE – It’s super detailed and has awesome pictures to follow.

A lot of hard work went into this pattern. It takes so much time to make sure written patterns come out right!   Below is a side view picture!

Crocheted Mermaid Dolls

Mermaid 4I’m back and ready to share my first Mermaid Doll I LOVE how she turned out!
For this one I used the following Pattern from Ravelry but I changed her Tail and I used this Pattern for that.  Oh and I added a belly button, not sure if you an see it that good! But I just had to try!
I also made up her Bra Top.  If you’d like to know how I did it please don’t hesitate to ask me!  IT was super easy!  These will be going into my Etsy Shop very soon.  I’ve got one more to show you which I’ll post tomorrow morning.  It is another great pattern and a super cute Mermaid!  So come back and check it out!  Thanks for stopping  by and as always….

What’s next on my hook…

Good Morning all and Happy Saturday!!

Well Baseball is officially over for my son.  Bitter sweet buy this Mama needed a little break until it all comes around again in August!  So it’s time for Fun in the Sun!  Well not so sunny right now actually a little foggy lookin outside!  But there’s a nice cool breeze.

AmigurumiAnyway, here a quick peek at my latest project.  Yes another doll but not sure you can tell what it’s going to be.  Since my last doll, which still doesn’t have a name, I’m been just a tad bit obsessed with dolls. This one won’t take as along though.

As always, thanks for stopping by and Happy Craftin’,

My Newest Project Revealed!!

Doll 4After Math

 

Happy Friday All –  Well I’m finally finished and I have to say that I stayed up til almost 2 am finishing HER!

This is my first Doll and I LOVE HER!  Not my first Amigurumi as I’ve made animals!  See the after math on my table last night??  Ok, so I am not showing you the WHOLE table! LOL! The book I used is in a link below.

Oh Man but it was so FUN making her!  I’m thinking I’ve got a new Obsession.  How can I not!  The possibilities are endless!  You know I’m going to HOOK me another one right?  You betcha!

Doll 3Here she is standing up! She’s coming in at about 13″ tall!  Now what to name her?? HMMM……

My son likes the name Andrea “Lady A” then changed his mind to Makayla.  My daughter and son-in-law like Donna, Sophia, Aubrey then Madison “Maddy” – I’m kinda liking Maddy.

What do you think?  As always thanks for stopping by and…
