The Well-Dressed Demon :-)

I had to give Angelique a few more Demon touches, including a knit dress with a skull motif around the border, and a neckchain of demon trinkets :-)

The neckchain idea came from this blog:  http://www.insidecrochet.co.uk/patterns/day-of-the-dead-bracelet/
I used a skull pattern from the Lionbrand site, and an Irish rose of my own, but the idea was all hers.

Here is the pattern for Angelique's Demondress

  5. Oh my, Demonchilde is simply amazing. I've been out west visiting my family in Utah for the past nine days. To return and find you busy creating this unique doll was a real trick n treat. Lovely work dear friend.

    1. Welcome back, my friend! Thank you so much for your good words on Demonchilde; she was wicked fun to make :-)

      There's a KAL on Deena's Ravelry site: We Make Dolls, that uses her free Lottie Doll pattern. I'm going to give it a go, even though the doll is quite a bit bigger than I usually make.

      Enjoy relaxing at home...what's on your hook these days??

      In friendship,

      Beth

  6. Hi Beth,
    To cute, I'm impressed. She's awesome. Did you use your Spirit doll pattern for the doll?
    Sure wish my knitting skills were better, I have a young person that would love this doll.
    Love her,
    til next time,
    Connie

    1. Hi Connie!

      I used Isabelle Kessedjian's My Crochet Doll as the basis for Angelique. I really like her doll form, and she is very easy to crochet. Bet you could do the same with one of the patterns available on the blog, or borrow Isabelle's book from the library (I did!, but then, I had to buy it :-)

      Have a lovely day!

      Beth

  7. I really admire your imagination! The doll is so charming, I love especially the accessories and the imaginative shape of wings. :)

    Something by the way, you wanted me to show you my fairy from Fiona McDonald's book when she's finished, so if you're still interested, here I post a link to the picture with my "Rose the fairy." :)

  8. I don't know how you managed to make a scary looking doll look so good. I am not a fan of anything that's associated with demonic stuff, but ooops you did it again. Nice!
