This week I created quite possibly the most wonderful crochet creation, a doll which my eldest daughter called June.
I had seen the pattern for the doll whilst browsing on Etsy. The creator has lots of beautiful doll patterns so I asked Miss P which one she would like me to make for her.
She choose this pattern for Autumn the Bear Girl by Jojilie.
I created the doll using my stash of Drops Loves You 9 cotton yarns. I used 114 storm blue, 102 light grey, 106 beige (skin), 112 purple, 105 sand (hair).
I started the doll on Saturday and it was finished by the Wednesday. It was enjoyable to crochet apart from the arms and legs, crocheted tubes is hard on the hands.
I added some blusher to give her a rosy glow.
She is adorable, kind of wishing I didn’t promise her to Miss P.
I needed to start a 2nd (50g) ball of beige yarn and used most of the purple. However I did have lots of the brown and blue left over so it is an ideal project for left overs.
She is so cute and I’m pleased to have made her and I plan to make another 2 as gifts. I’ve ordered some more cotton but in a different brand as it have proven difficult to get a suitable beige colour again.
If you head over to my Instagram you will see a fun short reel video that I created while I was putting her together.
Have a good weekend.
