Flower Power

Posted by 2ton Inspired on March 2, 2009

During a trip to Seattle a few years ago we stopped by a few baby stores because my friend and cousin were both pregnant and I fell in love with the Blabla dolls! I even wrote about them here. They’re just so colorful and cuddly.

So for my daughters first Christmas I wanted to buy her one, but my husband said “You can make that! It’ll be more special.” I remembered the Kate doll from Knitty and had been meaning to make one and used that as my starting point.

The body is basically the same except for I added a few decreases from the body to neck and then added increases from the neck to head to make the separation more defined. I opted not to add legs and shortened the arms.

At first I was going to add a flower to the belly but decided on a bird because my daughters Vietnamese name translates to Nightingale.   I cut out pieces of fabric and hand stitched it to the body.

Pattern:  Modified version of Kate by Jess Hutchison from Knitty Winter 05 edition.

Yarn: Bits of leftovers. Mostly acryllic.
