1  Whatcha makin' me... maybe a... blue sweater? in Crochet: Completed Projects by aplaceinthefrog on: January 15, 2008 09:27:45 AM
That's what I constantly heard from my daughter anytime she saw me crocheting. So apparently she wanted a blue sweater. I figured I'd crochet her the much requested blue sweater since I just started knitting and I knew I could finish it much faster in crochet.

This was my second attempt, the first pattern I used was just the wrong shape for her and so I frogged it and started over with this pattern from Bernat (http://www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=2613).
I used Wool-Ease in Blue Heather. I finished it last night and when she saw it this morning she wanted to wear it right away.

2  pink haired mermaid in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by aplaceinthefrog on: November 07, 2007 10:43:21 AM
my daughter is as obsessed with mermaids right now as I am with amigurumi Smiley

She's put together so she lounges on her side. Her hair is crazy, I used Patons Allure (I think) because my daughter said she should she have pink hair and it's so neat but her hair makes her head look huge.

4  Gumdrop Kid (3 pictures) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by aplaceinthefrog on: September 09, 2007 02:26:47 PM
I'm calling her a "Gumdrop Kid" because that's what her shape reminds me of. She has a bottom so she can sit on her own.
This is the second doll I've made like this, it's my original pattern. The first has been given to my quality control tester (my 2 1/2 year old) who has proclaimed her "neat!". I'm awaiting further feedback Smiley

I've included a side shot and a back shot so you can see what I mean when I say these dolls have a bottom. They sit very nicely. Please excuse the crappy quality of the pictures, I really need to photograph them outside in natural light.

Introducing Gumdrop Kid #2... Elizabeth!

Elizabeth likes flowers and blueberry muffins and reading books. Her favorite color is coral, she's very shy and she hates spending time outdoors (she'd much rather be snuggled in bed reading a good book).

thanks for looking!

5  Little Rag Doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by aplaceinthefrog on: August 27, 2007 09:56:23 PM
Here's a picture of the little rag doll I finished this afternoon.

She's from a free pattern from http://www.bowls-n-annies.com and she's about 8" tall. Such tiny parts! But it was fun to make her and I think it she turned out cute. I tried to get a close up so you could see the embroidered face better but everything was turning out blurry.

6  first post - a doll for ME! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by aplaceinthefrog on: August 21, 2007 11:05:06 PM
I just finished my doll and I wanted to share the pictures. Anything I sew is immediately claimed by my 2 year old, even when it's obviously not for her (like clothing in my size, lol). So lately I've been making her little dollies & stuffed animals and I decided that this doll was going to be for me!

She is from a vintage pattern and the included drawing of the finished doll is so sweet looking. I think mine turned out sweet, but not in the same way. The instructions were vague and I had trouble with the outfit (so she's sewn into it, no outfit changes for this girly) but I'm happy with the end result. I told my husband that if I were to make this again I'd probably enlarge the pattern to make it double the size, this was to small and fiddly. Plus I suck at hand sewing (which I needed to do with this doll & her clothes) so if it were bigger I could probably machine sew it all.

She's got string joints so she's lightly pose-able. Her hair is acrylic yarn and sewn on with the braids glued down. The color is pretty accurate in the pic where she's sitting down. My daughter requested that she have blue eyes, I know her eyes are crooked (as are her ears) but I still think she's cute. She's approximately 15" from head to toe.

I included the one of her faceless and hairless so you could get an idea of her head shape. No naked pictures though. She looked really odd. I was sort of reminded of how Lord Voldemort looked in the last two Harry Potter movies. Put it this way, when my husband came home and saw the doll body sitting on a chair (I was making the dress) he said "what is that creepy thing", lol.
