Happy Easter

While today is Good Friday, I don't post on the weekends. For those of you who celebrate, I wish you a very Happy Easter. I hope it is filled with family and friends.

I didn't finish nearly as many crocheted projects as I usually do for Easter. However, these are my completed Easter projects for the year.

Pig Witch


While I experimented with a variety of elephant patterns, once I found a pig pattern that worked, for the most part I stuck with it changing the costumes to match the holiday theme. The Pig Witch is based on the free Red Heart pattern Little Crochet Piggy found here. This was the first experiment I made with adding sleeves to the pattern. I got better as I worked on more holiday pigs. The dress easily adapted and as with the elephant, the hat came from an old Barbie pattern.

Elephant Witch


Continuing with the holiday theme of this swap I introduce the Halloween entry, the witch. This was one of the earlier elephants I made.

It was adapted from another free Red Heart pattern Baby's Elephant found here. The witches hat and outfit were adapted from a Barbie pattern I've used on a variety of ami's over the years.

One change I'd probably make with this pattern is to have crocheted the bottom of the elephant black to make the elephant a bit more modest.

I had originally thought I'd use this as the model for the rest of the holiday elephants, but I found the body was too short and stubby to make dressing easy. I realized I'd have to rethink the process as many of the other outfits were going to be far more detailed and less likely to fit this style of ami. However, I do think the baby made a cute witch.
