Finish! Sassoon the hair stylist

rsz_sassoon

I really love making Lalylala dolls, I was flicking through all the patterns with no idea which one to start so I decided to wing it and see what I could come up with using the basic doll pattern. It’s the first time I’ve added hair and I decided to make some simple jewellery to add, I figured the cute scissors charm would give a good ‘crafty’ touch 🙂

As I’m not brilliant at coming up with names I took the doll along to the #Knitcraft social I go to at Hobbycraft in Warrington (every Saturday 10.30 till 1ish) for ideas. In my mind Rainbow Head was a girl doll that loves crafts but as soon as Lisa from The Wee House of Crochet saw it she decided he was a male hair stylist called Sassoon! I’ve got to say I think she is right so Sassoon he is.

Finish! Erna the Strawberry from Lalylala

I have been crocheting like a mad woman recently but I haven’t been working on anything that I can share (it’s a bit of a secret project with the lovely Lisa from The Wee House of Crochet, and I’m so excited about it!). So I decided to take the Erna doll I finished a few weeks ago over to Wigg Island for some photos. I originally wanted to take pictures of her in the strawberry patch at my other halfs allotment, I have a whole scenario planned that I still might do, I just need to wait for the fruits to grow!

I really should of taken some close up photos of her to show off the beads sewn on as strawberry pips but I was having too much fun posing her (and entertaining the dog walkers who obviously thought I was crazy!)
