What Eva has inspired

The Eva doll pattern, freely available on Ravelry, continues to inspire my dollmaking.  So does Suzanne Woolcott's Gorjuss Girls :-)

So here is a little Fox pattern, that makes a perfect companion for my foxy Eva girl, Isobel:



Foxy Friend 

And for your crochet dolls, how about a remove-able wig?  Once you've made the basic pattern, you can vary it to a short bob, long curls, even braids if you want.

You can make the hair strands longer or shorter.  If you want braids, make them thinner (use sl sts instead of hdc sts).  A whole wardrobe of remove-able wigs can be made for your doll :-)

And again, once you understand the basic pattern, the wig can be sized for any doll, or use any yarn.  How nice to have lovely, long hair that won't get tangled!

Remove-able Wig

Have a lovely day, and enjoy the crochet!

    2. I just love this girl and her family of foxes. Did you attach her ears to the wig cap or are they removable? Speaking of removable, the wig cap is genius. The fox fabric you sent me will be lovely on the second doll on my hooks.

      And that leads me to my first Eva doll. After examining Bess, oh yes, I undress my dolls just like all little girls, I just had to drop everything and get out my hooks. Your pattern suggestions worked out great. I will post Eva No. 1 today on Flickr. Thank you dear for being my friend and favorite addiction.

    3. Her ears are on a crochet band, like a hairband with ears on it :-) I just threaded the yarn tails through her wig and tied it under her head in back.

      I think this may be my new favorite way to make a wig! Long hair that doesn't get mussed up, and any kind of curls you want to make :-)

      You are FAST!! I can't believe you made an Eva doll so quickly. I love your blond beauty; isn't this just a great pattern ?! I am SO GLAD to have you to play dolls with :-)

  2. Eva is so cute! I really like the idea of having different hair styles to choose from. If I was a little girl I would love to have a doll like that. Your little fox is so cute, and you're right, a perfect companion for Eva!
