Amigurumi doll Anna, 12.5 cm

This is getting a little repetitive, I know, but having 5 children means that birthday parties they are invited to occur almost every other weekend. By now quite few children in our circle know that I crochet dolls and that is what expected to be a present.

This one is of a 12 year old Anna, my oldest daughter’s friend. She is English, but she came out with a little bit of Ukrainian hint to her somehow. When I started crocheting she even started to look like a Spider-Man, so I had to hide those blue leggings under a long skirt.

Amigurumi – self-portrait 

I started this doll just because I can’t stop crocheting them at the moment. I didn’t have a clear idea who it will be, but wanted to experiment with making her stand on high heels, and also use some nice colours of the Anchor cotton I got from eBay.

And then at the face and hair making stage I decided to make myself. All children are done – they need a mother! At least as a doll I may dream to have a thin waiste line and stand confidently on high heels. Surprisingly, she is more firm on her heels than my previous dolls on their ‘flat’ feet.

 

Amigurumi crocheted doll Catherine

This is my first ever attempt to crochet a doll. She is called Catherine.

She can stand, sit, do ballet poses and turn her head. Note to self – embroider the face next time, and not use the beads for eyes and lips.

Sausage dog and others

We managed to get a little playhouse at a local dump for £3.

It needs furniture (garden wire is perfect for that) and inhabitants. So far playmobile figures are used, but we will gradually be replacing them with ‘real’ guys. These are my first experiments with crocheting amigurumi. The black cat – is my debut, the sausage dog – crochet no. 2. Crochet hook 0.6mm and a sewing thread.
