How to crochet barbie outfits

Crocheting Barbie outfits are easy, but you will ahve to use a very small hook and quite fine yarn. I use 100 % cotton and 1.9 mm yarn.

In this post, I gave Elsa a remake. I also made her a wig. In a previous barbie makeover, I stitched yarn directly to the barbie head (see image below), but this time, I made a wig using doll hair.

How to make Life Size patterns using crochet Doll patterns

If you multiply the stitches with 7 or 8, and use a larger hook such as 5.5 mm, then it is possible to recreate a doll pattern to become a real size pattern. :) You might also ahve to change yarn size to one that fits better around a larger size hook.

I had a great idea to Crochet an Emu wearing High Heel Stilettos. Yeah, it didn’t happen. Instead, I crochet a pair of mini Stilettos and one Big Crochet Emu….:D HAHA…. At least, I got two cool projects out of this Idea. I am very happy about the Emu. It looks very decorative on top of my bookshelf. I have crochet decorations throughout my house. Handmade is best and it gives your home a very homey look.
