Since my youngest had yet another birthday party to attend today and we have no birthday party present budget, I got busy searching Ravelry for a free pattern that I could use to make something quick and cute for the present. I was tired of making cats since I have made at least three lately as gifts, so I searched around for a bit and found this cute doll, which originally had bunny ears and a basket.
I used scrap yarn that I had on hand. For the hair, I put the hair on and then unraveled each yarn strand into its separate plies to make it look more like hair. I thought the worsted weight yarn looked too thick to be the doll’s hair. I also did not use safety eyes. Instead, I had some Lustersheen scraps. I made a single crochet and then finished it off and attached it to the doll.
