Ahh, here you are. Welcome to the next stop on Amy O'Neill Houck's Crochet for Bears to Wear
blog tour. Won't you sit and have a cuppa joe?
This is perfect for me because, while my daughter does have quite a few bears on her shelf, her BFF at home is an American Girl Doll named Lilly. So, I was thrilled to get a copy of Crochet for Bears to Wear
and its companion Knits for Bears to Wear.
Lilly agreed to be a model as long as she had say in which pattern I made for her. She liked the Bear-y Pickin' Dress but wanted it to be more of a hip length top. She also decided that the sleeves were a little too frilly and didn't suit her style. Since she's a very busy girl, I had to snap a quick photo of her in the top as she skated off to school.
Here's Lilly, aka Smackie O., not long after she joined a local roller derby team.
Not only am I looking forward to making more fun projects for Lilly, I think this book will be a great way for my daughter to get beyond crocheted chain bookmarks and bracelets.
Before you go on to the next stop on the tour, be sure to leave a comment so you can enter to win your own copy of this super cute book. Feel free to post whatever you want but I'd really love to hear about what you might have knit or crocheted for your dolls or teddies before.
