I'm not usually a huge fan of dolls (bad experience with Chuckie in my childhood), but I really loved the theme and design of this doll. I'm planning on giving it to my senior mentor's daughter as a gift this holiday.
The original crocheted doll:
was created by and the pattern is available on her Etsy website: www.etsy.com/people/epickawaii…. I took some liberties with some of the details. I left out the snowballs and top hat on her head as well as the button eyes (because button eyes creep me out). I also changed her hair style a bit because I prefer sewing over using hot glue, but at the same time, I didn't feel up to sewing on the intricate design shown in the picture. I also didn't have a yarn needle that could fit the thick yarn, so I used a crochet hook to sew the hair onto her head, which probably made it take way longer than it should have -__- The earmuffs I made are also slightly different because I don't know how to make pompoms and I was too lazy to look it up so I used a loopy method instead. Overall though, I followed the pattern pretty closely and I'm very happy with the result!
I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE HOLIDAYS TO BEGIN!!
