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.
