More Christmas Crochet, 2010

For my nieces for Christmas; Pocket Spirits with their own pockets!  The pattern for the granny square bags is available free from the Lily Sugar & Cream website:

Lily Sugar&Cream

They have some wonderful free patterns, including a great crochet doll, named Lily (of course!).

The ballerina outfits are from the Annie Potter Presents leaflet "Tu Tu Angelic."  I used my own design for the body suit, but the ballerina embellishment came from Annie :-)

  11. Thank all of you so much for your generous comments :-)

    As you all know, I believe Christmas would be a lot more fun, and closer to its true meaning, if we would simplify our giving and give with love. Things made with our hands, cookies, breads, scarves, shawls, booties, toys, whatever you can put your hand to, these will mean so much to whomever you gift them to.

    Bless you all!

  16. These fairy dolls are just magical! I wish I was your niece too. LOL! How lucky they are to have you to make such special dolls for them. I love the little pocket bags too. And the dresses..the hair..everything is just stunning. One of these days I will have to try to make one. Have a lovely day and thanks for the eye candy.
