angel dolls

Here are the angel dolls I made for Jenny to sell for me at her web store. They paid for the materials I need to make the yoke vest from loop-d-loop! Aren't they cute like this - a perfect snowflake or mandala.

cowl with drawstring

Here is a "Cowl with drawstring" I made from the Loop-d-Loop pattern. I didn't check my gauge, and it turns out I was off. Mine is 12 st / 16 rows = 4inch, the correct gauge is 10/12. I am giving it to a skinny friend, but had to try it on miss Z first. It is not soft enough for her, but terribly cute. I am thinking about getting some softer yarn and making one for her.

birthday baby doll

I made this doll for Zora's first birthday. She is to cuddle and sleep with. Here she is with hood down:I was very impressed with myself, because I crocheted her little cap of hair - and it turned out good. I am not much of a crocheter.

Zora fell in love with her right away - even when she had no body or hair. I left her like this for a day, and Zora played with her and hugged and kissed her. I considered just leaving her a head - but hoped that Zora would love her as much once she was finished. She still hugs her, but I think she might have liked her a little better in her original form.

I love how loving and kind Zora is. She is very good at expressing this with her huge hugs (with pats and sighs added). She hugs people, toys, animals, and even rocks sometimes.

side carry mei tai

I made this awhile back - I took apart the mei tai carrier that I had originally made, and reworked it into this. I saw one like it called a mei hip carrier, and figured I could easily transform the mei tai carrier. We love it like this -and wear it all the time when we are out shopping. Zora gets excited when she sees m
e putting it on.

sleepy time shoes

Here are some new shoes I made for Zora. I made these for her to sleep in, to keep her socks on. They aren't for daytime, because I am worried she will slip on the tile with them. Maybe if I got some puffy paint, and made traction?
