As I stated in my last post, I have finished another doll. This one has a shorter layered (sor of!) hair-do. She is made from all cotton yarn, except her hair. I don’t have a name for her yet.
This is the cat i mentioned in my last post also! I got frustrated with the yarn and also with how the limbs are to be attached. The lady who wrote the pattern had some very nice finished products, but as of yet, I have not figured out how to finish her!
Ahh yes! This is going to be another “My Little Pony” inspired character. One more leg to do; plus the assembly ; then decorating with mane, tail, eyes and cutie mark!
…that is all for now. I will post a picture of the pony before I send her off to her new home!

I have been working on a few things, but haven’t taken any pictures of my projects. I just wanted to write a brief update. I made another doll. These might become my specialty! If you would like to try your hand at one, there is a free crochet pattern at amigurumiBB.com, under BB dolls. Vanja has other free patterns for additional dolls and characters there too! I want to try and make a Waldorf inspired baby doll from her website some time. I also attempted an amigurumi cat but it looks like rat! So, I don’t think I will be sharing pictures of it! I even gave up (for now!) on putting it together.
I ordered some great yarn from Craftsy because I have been wanting to make this beautiful cape. It takes 14 skiens of yarn! Craftsy has great deals on yarn or I wouldn’t have been able to afford it. So, I got the yarn and I am now working on this large project. I will take pictures when it is finished.

This was my display table at the Honey Craft holiday Market last Saturday in Woodstock, IL! As you can see, I have a wide variety of merchandise for sale! My amigurumi animals in the back, all the way to my jewelry in front. socks and hats and shawls, oh my!
During the craft fair I was finishing up the little sweetheart! I sponsor a little Haitian girl through Love-A-Child, and I made a doll that looks like her. I wanted to send it to her but i just got a letter saying that packages are not getting through due to the political unrest there. So, I named her “Destine” after my girl!
My best friend had a birthday on December 7th and I made her a doll that looks like her daughter so, this is “Taylor”!
I got a message the other day from an old friend from Jr. High and High School. She asked if I made any amigurumi inspired by the “My Little Pony” characters. I hadn’t up until that point. She told me that there are a lot of young adults that loved these classic characters. I remember when I was growing up, my sister had some of these “dolls”, for lack of a better word. I found out that there are new cartoons out with new “My Little Pony” characters. Again, I found a free pattern for the body, thanks to knitoneawesome.blogspot.co.uk! I crocheted the eyes and had a dickens of a time embroidering them on! I also found a pattern for a six-pointed star for her “cutie mark” on her rump. Again I embroidered the white stars around the “cutie mark”. I crochet! I don’t do embroidery unless I absolutely have to! My sewing, by hand is getting better, too. It’s funny. I learned all of these skills: sewing, embroidery, knitting, when I was, like, 8 or 9 years old. Here I am 40 years later actually using them! I never learned to crochet back then. I only learned about a year and a half ago off of YouTube videos! So…here is MY little pony, inspired by Twilight Sparkle. If any of you Bronies would like one, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
