So a while ago I saw a post on here, by owly in the crochet section, she had made dolls in costumes so i decided to try it out myself and this is the result!  Let me know what you think!  It was my first time doing a doll ..... the hair was a real challenge!  I crochetted everything, but embroidered the hair (my first try at embroidery!)

That is incredible amounts of adorable! I love how the hood comes off, too--was it difficult to make? (I can't believe this was your first doll!)

Very cute.  You did a great job.  Owly (who did the other costumed dolls) has posted a tutorial on how to do hair, if you're interested.  Your's looks great I'm just not sure if her tutorial might help you in the future as you mentioned it was difficult.

Great job on the doll, I love the hood and the hidden pony tail.

It's probably about 12" tall.  It wasn't hard at all, well except for the hair.  I didn't use a pattern, but i may be able to write one up.  not til after xmas though (too much going on!)  it's all single crochet in rounds, pretty easy even for a beginner....

Owly (who did the other costumed dolls) has posted a tutorial on how to do hair, if you're interested.

Does anyone happen to have the link to that? I looked for it through some of her old messages and all, but with no luck. I'm dying to make an Alice (from Alice in Wonderland) doll, but I have no clue how to put hair on. >.<
