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.
