Meet Flora my reversible doll!
Here is when she is sad (or mad)
like my previous doll. The flower on top of her head is based on this pattern found here. I just made a circle of single crochet up to 24 switches and did rows 5 and 6 of the large flower pattern.
Maybe, someday, I will write out a proper pattern for her.
So why does she have a flower on her head? because she is part of this month's Sustainable Craft Challenge. This month the theme is flowers. That is why Flora has a flower on her head. I made her using the existing yarn I had in my stash. She will be well-loved among my other "stuffies".

Flora is very cute and a fun take on the topsy turvy doll I had when I was little (although I think my topsy turvy doll was awake and asleep if I remember right) Your instructions are ample for any experienced crocheter to follow but a proper written out pattern would be good for beginners I guess. This is such an adaptable idea, Flora could be embellished in any number of ways with all sorts of expressions - what fun!ReplyDelete
She is so cute. The flower on her head just finishes her off perfectly and gives her character.ReplyDelete
How sweet and creative, Julie! I've never seen any crochet item like this before! It's certainly unique! I don't crochet - my mother-in-law tried to teach me many years ago, but I could never pick it up! I admire anyone who does crochet. It's a wonderful technique to know!ReplyDelete
