Pocket Spirits for Christmas


These three little Pocket Spirits are a work in progress for my nieces for Christmas.  Meet Willow, Skye, and Cherry :-)

Since my nieces all take dance lessons, these little spirits are going to get some sweet ballerina costumes from an Annie's Attic publication called Tu Tu Angelic.  The body suit used with these patterns did not fit well on the Pocket Spirits, so I designed one that did.  The pattern for the body suit is here:

Pocket Spirit Bodysuit

This pattern can be used as a swim suit just as it is, or attach a skirt to it; add sleeves and wear it under a jumper or overalls.  It is a snug fit, so you'll want to try it on as you crochet to make sure it fits.

I plan to use the embellishments from the Annie Potter Presents publication with the new bodysuit.  We'll see how well it works!

Willow says 'Hi!'

  3. They are very cute. Reminds me of candy with the colorful hair and tasty names. Beautifully done. Can't wait to see their embellished outfits although they look great as is.

  6. Seriously, Beth, I bought a fancy yarn made in Turkey, I think, to make a dolly. Just have to finish Mega Man and Mario (Mario Brothers Video Game) and then I am making myself a dolly for me. :)
