American Girl Valentine Dress



This dressed is based on the Valentine's dress pattern found in PatternsByJeannine SIGNATURE SERIES: All American Girls - 36 Crochet Patterns for 18 inch Dolls. The hat is based on a free pattern found here.

I now have my second Valentine's package completed. I filled a Valentine's bag for my weekend visitor with the two dresses and a puzzle book. I am pleased I finished the challenge on time.

This was my first experiment with ribbon and it was a fun challenge. A saftey pin proved highly useful in threading the ribbon through the crocheted hat.

St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner and I have already started on my projects. I am converting a Skipper dress for Barbie with St. Patrick's Day colors. The skirt is almost finished. It remains to see how the top will fit.

Great job!! I really like to crochet, but have yet to venture out into makins something other than a blanket.

My motivation for learning to crochet was to make toys for my younger relatives. I never learned as a child. So I decided to teach myself to knit and crochet. The knitting was not very succesful, but the crocheting has worked out well. I have myself set to work on the knitting looms, I just need to carve out some time.
