Lacy Bumblebee Dog Sweater

The Lacy Bumblebee Dog Sweater, an original pattern by Christyl, is a yellow and black striped dog sweater with yellow ruffles around the arms, a black ruffle near the tail, and a black hood with a yellow ruffle and stuffed antennae.

The sweater is relatively warm – and can be made in a tighter, thicker stitch for short-hair dogs – and grabs a lot of attention when walking the dog at the park. This item can be adjusted for size and pattern to suit the dog type the sweater is being made for.

Colorful Tilda Doll


The Colorful Tilda Doll is a rather free-spirited style of doll, who wears colorful, mismatched clothing that is made with Red Heart brand yarn in white, green, and two different kind of rainbow variegated yarns (all colors can be altered to suit your tastes). She has green and white striped stocking legs and is wearing a variegated color/dark rainbow jumper. The jumper has golden ties on the sides of the legs and a front pocket with stitches showing as part of the style. Her hair can be either a skein of light rainbow colored yarn, or it can be crocheted pink velvet yarn in spirals that are tied up in a ponytail with rainbow yarn. The version of the doll that has loose yarn hair comes with a drawstring-adjustable bonnet in variegated colors of your choice. Her shoes are crocheted boots in variegated blues and greens. This doll can be made with safety eyes or button eyes.

Blue Tilda Doll

The Blue Tilda Doll is made with Lion Brand Feels Like Butta yarn in white, has a white bodice decorated with pink and purple velvet French knot roses, with shoulders shirred in pink ribbon, and a lacy skirt tiered with velvet edging. Her hair is blue and white Softee yarn knotted firmly to the scalp of the doll. She is wearing a headband that ties at the top of the head and is made with Feels Like Butta in pink. The headband is decorated with pink and purple velvet roses with teal leaves. Her shoes are crocheted Mary Janes. This doll can be made with safety eyes or button eyes – the last photo is of another doll, but to show what button eyes look like.
