This weekend I made diapers for my little girl's doll. I probably made more than she needs, but it was so much fun to watch her face light up as I got each one of them finished!
I designed the pattern to fit her Bitty Baby Doll. But, I also realize that some of you may have a different size doll.... So, I made the waistband adjustable. It may not fit all of your dolls and stuffed animals, but this will make it more likely to.
I wanted it to be a nice and tight fit so that we could fit the doll's pants over the diaper, and it worked out well!
Today I am excited to share the tutorial with you.
Here is what you will need:
1/4 yard or a fat quarter of cotton fabric.
1/2" sew in Velcro. I have tried the stick on kind, and didn't like it. It eventually comes off. If you try to sew it on, it will gum up your needle and the needle will have to be replaced. I highly recommend the sew in kind that is not sticky.
Before starting, you will need …
-Worsted Weight #4 Yarn. I used 100% cotton yarn, but acrylic yarn will work well too.
-Crochet Hook Size: E/4-3.50MM
-Sharp Needle for sewing pieces together
-Safety Pin for marking your Rnds
Beginning Crocodile Stitch: ch 3, (counts as the first dc),
work 5 more dc around the post of the next st,
sl st in the 3rd ch from the hook,
work 6 dc around the post of the next st (beginning crocodile stitch made)
Crocodile Stitch: work 6 dc around the post of the next dc, ch 3, sl st in the 3rd ch from the hook, work 6 dc around the post of the next st (crocodile stitch made)
The gauge doesn't matter so much for this pattern because you aren't making an article of clothing that needs to fit someone. I do tend to crochet very tight (tighter than normal) when I am making amigurumi so that the stuffing doesn't show through. But, if you want your t…
Lately, I have been having so much fun making my girls clothes for their dolls. My latest project was these cute crochet hats. They fit nice and tight, and I love the way they look on the dolls. I am sharing the pattern with you today so that you can make a few for your dolls too!
The yarn I used for this hat I purchased online from Fabric.com. It is called Cotton Classic Yarn. They have changed their website up a bit and I haven't been able to find it recently, so I am not sure if they are still selling it. This is my favorite yarn for crocheting Doll hats, so I hope I can find some more in the future.
