101  Monster High Crochet Dress pattern in Crochet: Completed Projects by dfabbric on: April 14, 2013 08:42:54 PM

The Cake Dress
Using Aunt Lydia's crochet cotton, beads for buttons and a steel crochet hook. Mine was my grandmothers and says 7 on it, but I think it's really old and has no relation to now sizing. As far as gauge I just to the first 2 rows and measure around the dolls waist. In the pattern there is ways to make it wider if necessary.

Cast on 25
R1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and across, turn (24 st)
R2: Ch2, (counts as dc) dc across to last stitch, 2 dc in last stitch. Turn (26)
R3-5: Repeat R2 (32)
R6: ch 1, 2 sc in 1st dc, sc 11, skip 1, 5 dc in next, skip 1, sc 2, skip 1, 5 dc in next, skip 1, sc 11, 2 sc in last. Turn (38)
R7: ch 1, 2 sc in 1st st, sc 17, skip 2, sc 17, 2 sc in last stitch, Turn (38)
R8: ch 1, sc 17, sc2tog twice, sc 17 (36)
R9:ch 1, 2 sc in 1st, sc 16, skip 2, sc 16, 2 sc in last (36)
R10:slip stitch across 5 stitches, ch 11, skip 9, slip across 8, ch 11, skip 9, slip in last 5, dont turn.
R11: Going down the side, sc 2, ch 6, skip 2 spaces, sc 2, ch 6, skip 2 spaces, sc 2, ch 6 skip 2 spaces, sc 2. (this is mostly just eyeballing 2 spaces to get 3 button loops evenly) You can add the
Note: If your top doesn't fit at the back, you can also do a couple rows on sc to make it a bit longer.
You can also stop here and leave it as a top.

Going across the bottom.

R1: ch 1, sc in bottom loops across (24)
R2:ch 2 (counts as 1st dc) dc in 1st stitch, 2 dc in each sc across (48)
R3:ch 3, 2 tr in 1st stitch, 3 tr in each across (144) turn
R4: ch 1 sc across in back loops only, join with slip stitch to 1st sc making a round. (144)
R5: ch 3 do not turn, tr in each stitch across join with slip stitch (144)
R6: ch 1, sc in back loops around, join with slip stitch
Continue rounds 5 and 6 until desired length. Be careful not to lose stitches at the end of your rounds.
Bind Off.

At this point what you do is optional. I used pink contrasting crochet thread and added a little ruffle. This is why you did the back loops.
Pick a row, sc at the back in a front loop, ch 6, skip 3 loops, sc, around.
Slip into 1st chain loop, ch1, (sc, ch6 sc) in 1st loop, ch 6, (sc ch6, sc) in 2nd loop and continue around. Bind off.
Skip 2 rows of front loops, do the same.
At the bottom, sc around, ch1, sc, ch6, skip 3 stitch, sc, around bind off.

This can be done in all front loop row, only around the bottom, you can do 3 rows of lace, or just 1.

Now that your dress is finished, put on your doll and measure for bead placement at the back. Sew on beads, this makes the dress easy to put on and off and you can choose how tight it will be on the doll and if you want it tighter at the waist. Make sure you use beads small enough to fit in the loops, they don't have to fit perfect.

Hope this pattern is easy to follow. Ask if you have any questions.

106  My Little pony Fluttershy in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by dfabbric on: March 23, 2013 10:07:37 AM
So here's a Fluttershy pony I made. The pattern is by Valleyviolet on etsy. It's pretty easy to make I did the hair and clothes custom. She's wearing her Runway model outfit she wore in "Green isn't your color". The clothes are removable.
I made her to sell on ebay, hoping to make back some craft money but no ones bidding, so I'm thinking maybe there is something wrong with her.

If you have any ideas on what I should change for next time, that would be very helpful.

Just got my mini quilt from Waggonswest. It is so cute I love it so much. I know she made it as a table runner, but I like it too much to put my books and drinks on it, so I am going to hang it. Hopefully I get to hang it in my craft room, and it doesn't get stolen by my husband for his office.
Thank you Waggonswest, it's perfect.
