I needed a quick project to hook for a few days while I rest from the big rug, All in the Family. So I'm working on creating a new doll, this time one for Easter. I hooked the front in two nights, and sewed quilt squares of wool together for the back and base. I am going to whip the back onto the hooked front tonight, so I should have a doll to post tomorrow. For now, here is a preview: the hooked front and the quilted back.
Or, I didn't have any course wool yarn or roving left to do his chest, so I spotted my selvage balls that I have sitting in a basket in my living room. Would it work? I tore up a few strips of the selvage to give them fluffy edges, then I dipped them in some tea I brewed, and threw them in the dryer. The result? When hooked it looks like bunny fur! Who knew I was saving those selvages for Peter Cottontail.
I hooked a chain stitch on the edge of his coat to give it some extra texture.
I haven't had any luck finding an egg ornament for his hands. Still working on that.
Wools I used:
8-Value packs: Milkweed 115; Violet Twilight 132; Crab Apple 135; Rosehip 145
Texture packs for coat: Jack Horner Plum 111; Rowan Raspberry 112
When I get the pattern put together, I'll post a note that it is available. Also I know a promised a couple of you that I would get a pattern put together for Lady Sunset, so I will do that too!
