I’ve had this Kiki doll pattern bookmarked for about 2 years and started the head & body back then (Update: hmm looks like the Kiki link now defaults to iCloud closed. Thank goodness I finished her in time !). I had searched and searched for a nice classy doll as opposed to weird 70 style.
And now I’ve finally finished her!!


My 4.5 yr old is obssesed by Tangled so I decided to do rapunzel. I intended to make a princess dress making it up as I went along but it started to look like a tutu so I made it into a ballet dress instead! My daughter is very pleased with it and has asked for lots of clothes for her.




20120610-113827.jpg Thanks to Planet June for this pear pattern. Having wanted something for a doorstop instead of the old bag of cat food holding it open I thought a pear shape would be nice. I used a 12mm hook & chunky wool, following same stitches etc and a sock full bag of rice within the stuffing. Because of the rice I didn’t pull the stalk or ends right through the pear.
