Poppy


I'm not much of an amigurumi kind of girl.  So much so in fact, I didn't even know how to spell it.  But, every once in a while, something so cute comes along, I just have to make it.


That's why I didn't hesitate to join in Sarah's Crochet A-Long (CAL) to make a pretty little dolly at her lovely blog, Annaboo's House.


The CAL also shows you how to make your amigurumi creation into a monkey, cat and other animals, but I had my heart set on a dolly, it was the little dress that really sold it to me, it looked so cute


I decided to use up my left-over supplies of Rico Creative Cotton for this little girl.  Which is the only explanation I can offer for her rather vivid hair.  Perhaps a little brighter than I would have naturally chosen, but the yellow colours just didn't hold out.  But her little dress, which I was looking forward to making the most, I do love.



Such a fun to make and a great gift for little ones.  I left her waiting on her new owner's bed today, as a surprise for when she came home.  So now dolly has a name.



She's called Poppy.  It seemed appropriate.

  3. I absolutely love her hair too. I think she could have a dress like Abi from NCIS, for nights out.

  13. Isn't lovely when you see something, fall in love with it and then make it. Poppy is gorgeous and being a red head, I think vibrant hair is wonderful.
