We have 5 little girl cousins all under the age of 9 around us for the holidays, so I thought in one way or another these would be enjoyed.
I went off of a basic hat pattern sized for kids and used Vanna's Choice in Beige for the skin.
The hair was made from whatever I had in my stash and ranged from Super Saver to Simply Soft.
I can now say with complete confidence I can do a crochet spiral in my sleep!
For the eyes I used some BIG buttons, hot pink felt for the cheeks, and black worsted weight yarn for the mouths and eyelashes.
While I adore the idea of Lalaloopsy and the look being all crafty cool,
I'm not a fan of the full on plastic the dolls are constructed from.
This was my compromise with Morgan...
not that she ever said she wanted one.
To be honest, I thought they could be made and I wanted the challenge.
As with Mount Everest, i did it because it was there.
