American Girl Ballet

I've had a busy year crocheting, but it is time to get back to my Christmas donation project. I decided to start up again with some projects that tend to have a higher success rate for me to get some put away before I tackle some of the more challenging projects.

This is one of my favorite projects to make every year because it works up quickly and it has a minimal amount of sewing, which I love. You can find the free pattern here.

I feel very blessed that a friend gifted me a doll to use as a model for my projects. Over the years she's been a huge supporter of this Christmas donation project and this year is no different. On top of being grateful for her donations to the kids, I'd just like to thank her for allowing me to have one of her dolls. The doll is beautiful and I am enjoying being able to use her to take my doll pictures with before packing off the clothes in the donation bags.

Project notes for myself:

This required an I hook with the exception of the shoes this year for the outfit to fit. The shoes were too large with an I and I had to reduce to a g hook to get them to fit. I like the solid color light pink with white trim rather than splitting the colors between top and bottom as I've done in previous years following the pattern.

It's very cute. I used to have a friend decades ago who spent her time crocheting doll dresses. Thanks from reminding me of good times with a lady now in heaven.

I too crochet, but I have to follow directions still and you tube is fantastic for that. I just finished doing a Kaleidoscope Shawl for my SIL for her birthday. She loved it. I was kinda proud of it myself. Now I'm working on a bed apron for my nephew & his new wife. I hope they like it. Your dress on your doll baby girl is awesome. I wish I was that good. It's truly fantastic. Thanks for sharing.
