Mother Earth Crochet Doll

This is my latest creation. I love her. Her body is stuffed with Rice and the Earth is stuffed with Rice and Lavender. Getting her shaped just right was a bit of a challenge but I did it. I wanted to get more detailed with the eyes but she is only 7 inches tall so that was difficult. Once I put the felt on her though I realized it was the perfect face and I wouldn't want it any other way :D I tried to make her look like a tree, brown on the bottom and green on top. I felt that was appropriate ;) I have been wanting a Goddess statue for a long time now but for some reason I didn't even think to make one. The pattern for sale in my Etsy shop for $5.20. The pattern is 9 pages long with pictures. What do you think?

Earthy Witch Hat

Oh what a summer it has been this year. I hope you all had a wonderful time :)

Here is my newest creation. This year I was considering dressing up as a witch for Halloween. I was looking at what other people came up with for witch hats and I decided I really didn't want to take the classic route. The points are too long and the brim is too wide. I wanted to be able to wear it more than just Halloween. So I decided to make the top and brim shorter. This is what I came up with. I named it Earthy Witch Hat because it reminded me of bark on a tree. I can't wait to wear it hiking :) It will keep the flies away from my head and help protect against the sun :) My dad kinda gave me inspiration for this hat too. When I was little we would go on walks in the woods and he would let me wear his hat. (that is one of the fondest memories I have of him) It was a men's hat but the brim was perfect. Not too big not too small. That is kinda what I wanted to achieve with this.

What do you think?

If you want the pattern it is available for $3 in my Etsy Shop

You can fold up the brim if you like :)

For those of you who don't know how to do cables here is A link to a video someone made that should help :)
