Crafty Cardmakers Challenge - #236

Hello sweet visitors.  Welcome to my blog.

I'm here to share my project for the new Challenge at Crafty Cardmakers.  Angela is our lovely host and the Theme is 'Anything but a Card'.  As always, you may create anything you like, as long as it isn't a card.

Thought this would be the perfect time to share another of my Amigurumis.
I have crocheted quite a few small animals but this is the first actual doll I have made.  I used a pattern by Laura Tegg called Standard Weebee which is available free on Ravelry.  This pattern is for the full body and has a simple hair cap as well.  The hair I have crocheted for my doll is from another pattern.
The boots and knickers are removable.  I used the appropriate sections of the original pattern and simply used a slightly larger hook so they would go on and come off easily.
The hair was done following a pattern by Denise Angelo.  She shared it on Facebook for the WeeBee Appreciation Society.  You need to be a member of this group to access it.

Her dress is also made with a free pattern by Laura Tegg.  It is called the Pretty Shells Dress and is also available on Ravelry.  The underskirt I created free hand and also added a simple tie at the waist.
I crocheted the doll and the clothes with 4ply acrylic yarn and she stands approx. 8" tall,
I named her Esmeralda but she will have a new name now as she has gone to her forever home with a friend's little girl.  Hope they have some wonderful times together.

Would love it if you would pop over to the CCM Blog and check out the awesome creations by my Teamies.  They have some amazing inspiration for you over there.  The link is below
