Dolls in Costume

Last week, I received a special order for 2 dolls.

Doll in Hippo Suit and Doll in Panda Suit

The doll in panda costume is easy for me to make because I just followed my pattern. The doll in hippo suit is something that's been on my list of things to do, and because of the request, I had to come up with a pattern.

I hope the lady will like these dolls! After I took the photo, I had to pack them in a box...I didn't have the chance to enjoy looking at the dolls in person. A few days after I mailed these dolls, I found myself looking at their photos more and more in my computer :) I think I miss these dolls! But I ran out of stuffing and couldn't make any doll until I get new stuffing again.

I also think I got lucky with the photo...usually it takes me several tries to find one that I like. This one took me only 3-4 tries. I will post more photos as soon as I make another as a model for my pattern. I will also make a "hippo friend" to go with the doll in hippo suit, just like my other dolls in costume patterns :) I am thinking of adding shoes to the pattern version of the doll in hippo suit, or just leave them like that, like babies in suits...perhaps I'd try one with shoes.

Thank you for viewing!

More Crocheted Taffy Apples

Amigurumi Taffy Apples
Pattern available

Something to crochet for halloween, or use as a fancy pin cushion.
I enjoyed putting the decorations, especially the "loopy cereals."
I wanted to use a real stick, but I thought if a child would like to play with these, he or she might get poked in the eye, so I just designed it with a crocheted "stick."

Caramel Apples in Crochet

Here are candy apples I made.
These are crocheted so there's no sugar :)

Amigurumi Taffy Apples

The crochet pattern is available here. This was a result of a pattern request by a lady on etsy last year. Thank you for looking!

A Box of Mice Dolls with Flowers

Several months ago I made a decision to offer dolls in my etsy store. Unfortunately I had become busy with other things. There are also some patterns waiting to be finished, with parts here and there that I haven't figured out yet, but after I finally finished my cupcake pattern (previous post), I just had to make dolls. By the end of September, I made a list of dolls to make and put in my etsy shop in time for the holidays.

More Amigurumi Mice Dolls with Flowers

Among the dolls I planned to crochet are these mice dolls . These are easy for me to make, and in the past I got asked if I also sell the finished dolls too and not just the pattern, so I put these in my list of things to crochet. The very next day, I received an order for all 10 dolls - one person's house is about to be infested with cute little mice dolls! Now I must make dolls for my shop, but must rest my fingers for a while :)
