My Little Crochet Doll – Ballerina

I know, I know… It’s been a little while since I said hello.

I’ve been so busy. I got a few weeks paid teaching work and I also got a place at Huddersfield Uni. It’s all go!

But I finally sat down and finished the next doll pattern for the little crochet doll. This time a pink ballerina doll.

She is fast becoming one of my favorites.

The bodice from the tutu came from a similar style of dresses from the by hook by hand blog.

The dress is written in full, but you will need to buy the My Little Crochet Doll pattern from my Etsy or Ravelry shop to make the doll, underwear and ballet slippers.

So, What’s next?

I was thinking a Victorian outfit, or maybe a cooks outfit. What do you think?

While I’m here I might as well let you all know about the next needle felting session at Inkwell, Potternewton Lane, Chapel Allerton. It’s Saturday 22nd March, 10.30am till 12.30pm £6 each.

We’re making the needle felted fairies and dolls for Mothers day. We made them just before Christmas and everyone loved them. This time though we can look at free standing dolls. I haven’t taken any photos yet, but here’s a similar mobile I made using the same process, it’ll at least give you an idea.
