About Me

I have loved knitting ever since I was a little girl.I use to make dolls cloths for my dolls just out of the top of my head...I love making socks,slippers, mittens, dishcloths etc...I love drawing & cartoons & making patterns out of them...

My Grand Mother Burhoe & My Great Aunt Marjorie McCoubrey taught me how to knit when I was a little girl...When I use to go to my Aunt Marjorie's house I would stay over night she live in the high rise across from market square & we would knit & look out her window & watch the boats...Some times we would go out on the board walk...Then we had our walks to Market Square, we would go in all the little shops & look at all the ornaments & novelties...Some times we would buy something & get a piece of fudge at the fudge stand in the center of market square... When I would go to my Gram's house I would also knit when i was there...Gram was always knitting socks, mittens & she made me a blanket witch I still have...lol It has come apart several times & she would always fix it for me...I still use it to snuggle & the kids are not allowed to use my blanket because it is so warm & cozy...lol I actually made my daughter her own blanket & I will have to make 3 more for all them to have one...My mother inlaw taught me how to follow knitting patterns. God rest her soul. She is truly missed.

I love the 80's...Especially the 80's Cartoons, tv shows, Movies etc...When ever I come upon something from the 80's I gotta have it...lol I have uploaded pictures of things I have collected over the years so far...I hope to collect more...None of my items are for sale...I am just posting them for your viewing pleasure...Enjoy

Sleeping Beauty Crochet Aurora Lovey Blanket Tutorial

Blanket:
For the blanket I used Bernat Star Blanket Pattern that you can get here or you can pick another pattern or your choice here.

Just follow the pattern with the colors or your choice & to the size that you want.


Supplies:
Hook - H
Yarn - Red Heart Super Saver Economy Yarn
Sissors
Darning Needle

Head:
I followed this Doll (amigurumi) pattern for the shape of the head by Miki that you can get here.
You can use this pattern or pick a favorite pattern of your choice.

Nose:
For the nose I tried to sculpt it with the same color yarn. You can look @ the video here to get a idea of how you can do this.

Eyes:
For the eyes & lips I just tried to embroider them with yarn. I am going to purchase some of those safety eyes for the next doll I make. You can find a list of sites to buy them on PlanetJune.
I also though about buying an felting needle &try my hand @ felting. You can view an example of needle felting eyes here.

Hair:
For the hair you can pick your method of choice. I just did the latch hook method with my crochet hook. Here are videos to help you choose your method.


Arms:
For the arms I ch 2, Sc 8 sc in 2nd chain from hook. Cont. sc in a spiral until you get to how long you want your arm to be then change to skin tone or color or your choice. Do a few rows then do one sc increase in the next 4 sc. You should have 12 sc now. sc next two rows. 

Thumb: This is done with the same idea as making a mitten. If you have never maid a mitten be for you can check out the videos here

So basically you want 8 sc for the hand part & leave 4 sc unworked for the thumb. You are still working in the spiral round. Cont. hand until you get the length you want then fasten off leaving tail for sewing up fill with material of your choice.

Now cont. with the thumb. Sc in the next 4 sc & pick up 2 sc on the side of the hand. Cont. in the spiral round for your desired size of your thumb. Finish off leaving a tail for sewing. 





Crown Applique:
Now I needed a crown. I was going to follow this pattern but it turned out way too big so I made modifications to make a smaller one that would work for the doll.

Here is my modified pattern for the crown:

Ch 13.
1st Row: Work 1 sc into 2nd ch from hook, work 1 sc into ea ch across, ch 1 turn.
2th Row: Sl st across first 2 sts, * ch 3, miss 1 st, work 1 sc into next st, rep from * 3 times, sl st across remaining last 2 sts, turn.
3th Row: Ch 6, work 1 sc into ch-3 loop, ch 4, work 1 sc into next ch-3 loop, ch 6, work 1 sc into next ch-3 loop, ch 4, work 1 sc into next ch-3 loop, ch 6, sl st into last st, turn.
4th Row: Work 6 sc into ch-6 loop, work 4 sc into ch-4 loop, work 4 sc, ch 3, 4 sc into ch-6 loop, work 4 sc into ch-4 loop, work 6 sc into ch-6 loop.
Fasten off.

I would of preferred a gold color for the crown but I had to work with what I had. I was thinking on making a pink crown with the darker shade of pink as well.

Sew all your parts together & tie in you ends & your done :)
