Twilight sparkle gets a make over! * this is a guideline not a pattern

*Please note this is meant to be used as a guide line and is not a stitch by stitch pattern however if you have crochet experience this should be the steps you need to make this dress*
My youngest LOVES My little pony especially  the Equestria Girls . I think the movie is cute but the hem line on those dresses leave NOTHING to the imagination! And it's hard to play with the doll with out her dress falling down...It really bugged my five year old that the dolls underwear kept showing! So I grabbed a few Bon Bons  in the Brights and went to work! I started at the waist and chain to the width and added 3 extra for over lap ( I sewed Velcro on to make the dress easy to get on and off! ) to give the skirt texture I did one row hdc. then on the next I did sc and put in increases in every other stitch. The next row I did just hdc, and the next was sc,sc, 2sc repeat .
To give a little flare I did hdc *ch1 sk 1 hdc* and repeated until the end.
I worked 2 sc in each ch1 for the next row and I finished off the skirt with a row of ch3 sl in every stitch.
for the top I started at top and worked my way down using only sc. I put in a few decreases on the 2nd to last row so the top would go in.

When you use velcro you shaping can be very forgiving so even a novice can try this and make something CUTE!!!! send me you photo and we can have a gallery of our doll clothes :)
for the strap i chained 8 and sewed it on both sides.

Tell me have you make any type of doll clothes?

Thread Cross Bookmark

I used Aunt Lydia's Crochet thread and a size D hook. Make a magic circle Round 1 Ch3, 2dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2 and join. Sides and top of cross Ch3 2dc, ch2, dc3 in any ch2 sp. Turn and *sl to ch2, ch3,2dc, ch2,3dc. *Turn and repeat * repeat everything in this step 3 more times. Cut thread and weave in ends at the ends of the sides. Bottom of the cross When you get to the last side repeat the * section 2 more times for a total of 4 shells for the bottom and 2 shells for the sides not including the center. On the top of the cross attach yarn and chain 26, skip the first 5 and sl to the first chain. Then I added a tassel. If thread isn't your thing check out this great bookmark Stitch 11 made from my Cross Bangle pattern! Check out the Stitch 11 post here

Easy simple no shaping stocking ornament

Step 1 This is the star stitch but you can make these any size and any stitch just make it in this shape. The above sample has 19 star stiches on the bottom ( 2 rows plus beginning hdc row)and reduces to 10 star stiches ( 3 rows) step 2 turn so the right sides are facing each other, and sew them together like the above picture,. isdsjfklajlkdsjc step three turn right side out! attach a chain 5 if desires so you can hang it. I am making about 30 of these for my 6 year old to hand out as Christmas gifts at school with mini candy canes in them!
