My Little Crochet Doll – Ballerina

Betty Virago

I know, I know… It’s been a little while since I said hello.

I’ve been so busy. I got a few weeks paid teaching work and I also got a place at Huddersfield Uni. It’s all go!

But I finally sat down and finished the next doll pattern for the little crochet doll. This time a pink ballerina doll.


She is fast becomming one of my favorites.

The bodice from the tutu came from a similar style of dresses from the by hook by hand blog.

The pattern is here… MLCDballet

The dress is written in full, but you will need to buy the My Little Crochet Doll pattern from my Etsy or Ravelry shop to make the doll, underwear and ballet slippers.

So, What’s next?

I was thinking a Victorian outfit, or maybe a cooks outfit. What do you think?

While I’m here I might as well let you…

Mary Janes: tiny booties for dolls

The burden here is sweet....


Just wanted to share this because I have been asked and it bothers me not to help anyone who asks me about crochet. I made these dolls using this pattern I found on Ravelry: by Vanja Grundmann

With Worsted Weight yarn in two colours of your choice and a 3.00mm hook

NOTE: if you used DK weight yarn and a 2.00 mm hook for your doll please use the same for these shoes so they will fit.

Ch 8

Round 1. Sc in the first 6 ch, 3sc in the last, then turn your work and continue on the other side of your work, working in the free chains beneath, sc in the first 5 loops, 2 sc in the last loop.  Do not join, do not chain, but begin the next row simply in the first stitch of this round. (16sc) **hint: use a stitch marker or a…

Crochet with Raymond


Here I am, back again, to finish what I began yesterday!  I wonder if it seemed strange to you all that I post a tutorial on how to make a leaf….. all will come clear today, I promise!

High Tea was lovely yesterday!  Oh I wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiish I had taken my camera so I could have shown you the beautiful table covered in flower petals and the delicious cakes and fabulousness!  Another time I’m sure!  It felt like a faery tea party outside in the rose garden.  Thank you *S*!!!

I have to say, today I am sooooooooooooooooooooooooo excited to post…. Brace yourselves for much enthusiasm and many exclamation marks!  I got a tutorial all ready to do this yesterday, but like I said, the weather was rubbish and so were my pictures.  But I’m glad now, because the second lot are soooo much nicer than the first lot could have ever…

Bunny Family Easter Portrait

A bunny family

AmigurumiBB by Che'Che'

Hello dear friends,

It is little bit more than one month till Easter! This year my Easter bunnies wanted to share their family photos with you. They were also so very kind that allowed me to write the pattern so all of you can make their relatives and send us their photos when done. This way all the bunnies will see their relatives around the world and will be able to make a family album and maybe even create a family tree 🙂

Let me introduce the Bunny Familly

Bunny Familly Easter Greetings

As you can see it is pretty much the modern Bunny family; grandparents, mom and dad an one child (in tis case son).

Lets look at some more photos from their family album

Here are Bunny grandparents with their grandson. Grandma was first I made. From her pattern all other bunnies were born (It should have been grandpa, but….I started with…
