Crocheted Hair Accessories!

Having a daughter allows me to create more girly things. I never did when I was younger and my daughter loves everything girly. I have recently began making her crocheted headbands. Below are examples of the ones I have made so far. More will come in the future. Might even make clip versions. Let me know if you want to purchase one you see. If you make a custom order please allow me about a week to finish it. Prices are posted below on the pictures.

How to Make Dolly (Toy Story 3)

Who doesn’t love Toy Story? It’s just the way they tell the story. They hook you from the start and I’m always in tears by the end. Everyone knows Woody and Buzz but Dolly was the leader of Bonnie’s toys in Toy Story 3 and we can clearly see that in Toy Story 4. I made Dolly for my daughter for her 5th birthday. She will be 5 next week, so it’s only fitting for Dolly’s pattern to debut in my daughter’s birthday month. If you would like to purchase the pattern please head on over to my shop. Here is the link to where you can buy it: Toy Story Patterns.

The Largest Crocheted Dragon I have Ever Made!

I have been a fan of Miyazaki films since I discovered them years ago in college. They just have a feel to them that other cartoons in the US don’t have. They’re wholesome and they teach kids many life lessons. They empower kids and make you feel enchanted after watching them. My favorite one is Spirited Away. At first I just liked this movie and then the more I watch it, the more I fell in love with it. And being me, I just had to make the characters. It wasn’t until recently that I started making them. My kid’s birthdays fall on May, June and July and I decided that this year, I would make them dolls. I had to start in February because I didn’t think I would finish in time. I had already given myself a big project of crocheting all our ornaments for December (more on that in another post). So I didn’t plan to make this doll gigantic but it just turned out that way as I was making it. It filled the entire bed and for months my husband had to battle this giant dragon for space on the bed, lol. At some point I never thought I would finish. It probably took me 2-3 months and about 4-5 skeins of yarn. I looked at numerous images online to get the look I wanted (movie and other crocheted dragons). After finishing the dragon, I had to make Chihiro. They just go together. She didn’t take too long to make.

I didn’t write down the patterns but I do have diagrams and some notes on how I made them.
