Hi!  I finally finished TMNT Lana.  I like her overall.  It was fun doing her hair especially since I've never done that before and I love the way it looks wild and unkempt like her real hair.  I had a  bit of a problem figuring out her mask, but I wanted it to be removable so that she can play with the doll.  If you guys have some suggestions on how to make a better one in crochet please share!!  I am hoping to make her some clothes in the future so I made a new pattern for her body. 

Lana loves to hear adventures about the turtles and we've added some characters like the TMNT babies (kids of the TMNT) and Toddler TMNTs (Red, Yellow, and Green), as well as a Splinter's family in Japan, so I may end up making more of the cast if she asks.  I'd love to make some baby TMNTs with little bodies.   Cheesy 

Thanks for looking!!  Comments are always appreciated!

Wait are you saying there's more to the story now? TMNT was my favorite growing up (that and GhostBusters) I had never heard of TMNT toddlers or babies before. I love the dolls. They came out really cute.

I am so jealous! I wish my mom had made me things like this when I was a kid. Very impressive.

How I love your TMNTs! Can't wait till I get back from vacation and can start making some. Smiley Your Lana is awesome here as well!

Ideas on the mask... it would take some trial and error to get the spacing right, but maybe you could try making two "eye opening" circles, attaching them together, and then sc once around the whole thing and make the two tails for tying in the back... That way it would have eye holes but cover up the nose-ish area in between. Have you ever made angryangel's white Totoro or dragon? like the ears or nostrils (respectively) on those patterns.

Hmm, I hope that made sense. If you have any questions or want the link to the patterns I mentioned (I believe they're on her livejournal page: http://heavens-hellcat.livejournal.com ) just pm me and let me know.

Lovely work!

Sooo cute!  I take it Lana is your daughter?  I bet she loves it!

For the mask, I'd do the top row or two, then on the next row when you come to the face part, sc like normal, chain enough to get you past the eyes, do a couple of sc in the middle, chain again for the next eye, and continue on as normal.  Or maybe hdc in the middle and sides of the eyes to make the holes bigger.  On the next row, hopefully there would be holes there made by the chain gaps.  Hopefully that makes sense!

Just an idea.  My 8-year-old daughter crocheted her little brother a turtle mask from cotton yarn and that's what she did.  Smiley
