Do you remember the crocheted monkey I made ages ago? You can read all about him here. He was my first ever finished crochet project – and got me ‘hooked’!!! He’s been sitting on a chair in our living room, looking a bit lonely (and with nobody to play with when he comes to life at night – which, of course, he does). So, I decided to make him a little pal.
I made my monkey by following the brilliant Annaboo’s House crochet-a-long. Sarah’s super CAL gives instructions for making a monkey, a rabbit, a cat, a mouse, a bear and a doll. So, this time, I decided to make a little dolly.
She was a bit trickier than the monkey – especially the hair! I spent HOURS making her ‘wig’, and then HOURS more trying to make her two (level) pigtails and tie ribbons neatly in them! She also required some clothes (it’s still pretty chilly in Düsseldorf, after all). I followed the dolls’ dress tutorial that Sarah suggested in the CAL, which you can find here. It wasn’t complicated – just a little bit fiddly. I made it reversible – red with white dots on one side, and blue with bigger white spots on the other. Of course, she likes the red side best!
And here she is, all finished:
And here she is with her best pal, Mortimer:
They have lots of fun together! They like to watch movies together and play on the wii, after we’ve gone to bed.
I haven’t given her a name yet. Do you have any good ideas???
