New yarn storage!

I made this storage unit for my yarn that fits in my closet and displays my yarn beautifully! Soooo much better than using the big plastic bins where everything gets tangled together!

SAMSUNGWell it turns out I’m not as well and able as I thought, but I do have plenty of stuff to post about. The other night I decided I would learn how to knit again because honestly you could not have paid me to knit something without looking up how, I had so completely forgotten it. But luckily it took me all of 30 minutes to re learn it and after making a small swatch I made this adorable sweater and already I’m changing the patterns. Knitting and crochet are half science, half sport. Super easy. I made this sweater from a free pattern Here. She has many great knitting patterns for Pullips and they are so cute! Here it is flat.

SAMSUNGI also made a top for Frankie. I am meaning to add to it to make it more of a baby doll pajama with some bottoms. The trouble I’m having with crocheting for Monster High dolls is that the are SOOOOO incredibly skinny and then their hips and quite wide. I like to make clothes that can be pulled on and off, but it’s looking like I’m going to have to add some kind of closure to their clothes. When I come up with something acceptable, I’ll post the pattern. I know there is a lack of MH crochet patterns.

I’ve also started working to redo my smallest dollhouse. Right now it’s pretty ugly, but soon I will redo the wallpaper, make some furniture, and knit and crochet some rugs and curtains.

For some reason that back corner would not focus. I actually got those two porcelin dolls at the dollar store for Christmas. They fit perfectly and though they are not that great of quality, they are nice fillers so my Suve isn’t so lonely.

I’ll post soon with updates on the dollhouse and some tutorials and tips for saving money! Yay!

*I made an edit , I totally wrote it down wrong, sorry. Everything should be correct now.

This pattern should be easy to scale up or down for other small dolls, you just need to measure the starting chain around the doll and either add or subtract stitches. It is important though to have the number of stitches be even for the V stitch pattern to work. As for the top straps, just divide your new number of stitches by 4 the best you can and make the chains long enough to fit your doll’s shoulders.

Hujoo Baby dress

This pattern is written in American terms.

– Size B / 2.25mm crochet hook

– Bernat Handicrafter Crochet Thread. It doesn’t say what size it is, but it’s much thicker than size 10 crochet thread and thinner than 5. It is about the thickness of sock weight, or Patons Lace.

Starting with the bodice, the pink part in the picture. Use your main color of yarn. Worked in the round, do not turn.

1. Ch 19, join. (this should leave you with 18 stitches.) Sc around.

2 & 3. Sc around. Ch 2.

4. (1 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next stitch, *skip next stitch. (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next stitch.*  Repeat ** around. Join to ch 2. Ch 2.

5-7. Repeat row 4. FO

Now with the contrasting yarn, if you choose to use it. Join at the bottom of the skirt where you just finished off, and sc once in every dc and (1 sc, ch 3, join to first ch, 1 sc) in all the ch 2 spaces. Join to beginning of round and FO.

Still in contrasting yarn, turn the dress right side up with the back facing you.(Note: The following “stitches” mentioned are the other side of the starting chain in pink. Sometimes when you work both sides of a chain it leaves small gaps around. Try and crochet through both loops left from the chain if you can. But if this confuses you then don’t worry about it.)

Starting from the center back, join and sc in the next 3 stitches. Ch 10, skip the next 4 stitches, sc in the next 5 stitches, ch 10, skip the next 4 stitches, sc in the next 2. Join. Sc around in all the sc and across each ch 10. Join and FO. Weave in the ends. Yay, you’re done!!

I hope that you can understand this pattern, and as always don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions. Also, this pattern is completely of my own creation and is for personal use only. I ask that you do not sell this pattern or the items you make from it. Thank you.

Enjoy! Some undies to go with this dress will be up very soon so follow me and check back! I love to hear your comments so don’t be shy!

So this is the pattern for Fiona’s hair…it’s not much of a pattern and will probably be super hard to follow, but it doesn’t have to be perfect, it’s a cartoon after all!

With J hook and pale yellow yarn

Ch 9, turn and hdc in the 3rd ch from hook and the next 6, ch 6.

Turn and hdc in the 3rd ch from hook and the next 9 stitches. ch 2 and turn.

Hdc in the next 10 stitches and ch 14.

Turn and hdc in the 3rd ch  from hook and the next 21 stitches. Ch 2 and turn.

Hdc in the next 16, ch 2 and turn.

Hdc to the end of the row. FO.

Surface crochet, or sew, the hair on to the square, overlapping the face. Curl the long end a bit when you secure it so it flips out like in the picture. Weave in ends or hide them between the hair piece and the back of the square. And you’re done!

You could also use this for any other bangs you might need.  Thanks for all the views! Don’t forget to follow and comment!

For Fiona’s hair, I free formed it and didn’t write down the pattern so I will have to look at it and figure out what I did. I should have that up soon.

 

I hope you can read this!! I tried to translate it from my pattern scratch but I have the flu so I’m not at my best today, sorry. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me, I will be glad to help!

Also, this pattern is completely of my own creation (though I do not own the characters Finn or Fiona) and is for personal use only. I ask that you do not sell this pattern or the items you make from it. Thank you.

So this past 10 days I was able to meet some relatives of mine for the first time and I really enjoyed it. So much in fact that I had to whip up some early gifts for them while I was in their neck of the woods.

Socks for my Great Aunt, and a hat for my Great Uncle.
