Introducing Elyse!

I have been working on her since November, and I'm very happy to finally have her finished.  Grin

She is going to my daughter for her fifth birthday in March. She and my daughter (also named Elyse) share brown hair and eyes, and the amigurumi Elyse is dressed in my daughter's favorite colors.

Between creating a pattern, crocheting and sewing all the parts together, Elyse was a lot of work!

Here are some WIP shots.

I'm really proud of her legs! They are probably my favorite part.

I also like her torso, but you can't see the shaping on the finished doll because of her clothes. I just need to work on giving her a booty!  Cheesy

I hope you all enjoyed looking at Elyse. She is probably my favorite project to date.

Hell yeah! That is awesome. My jaw really dropped a few inches when I saw the first picture. I mean, id doesn't even look like it was crocheted...

I'm so going to hit the 'This Rocks' button...

Did you just make it up along the way?

Thanks everyone!

I did make the pattern up along the way. There were several parts that had to be done over or frogged to get everthing proportional. I know the legs look small in the pic, but that is mostly because I took it from a higher angle rather than straight on.
