Crochet Christmas Gift

Here is the most time consuming of all the Christmas gifts that I made. My parents hosted a foreign exchange student this year. Her name is Neila and she is very much a Girly Girl! I made mom a crochet bed doll a few years ago that she has sitting in her bedroom. Neila saw it and fell in love with it. So back in September I decided to make her a doll for Christmas in her favorite color...bright pink.

The ruffles and the underskirt took forever! I was working on it until the very early hours of Christmas morning. I shouldn't procrastinate so much and try to get things done sooner. But then I just came up with more ideas for handmade Christmas gifts.

Here is Neila opening the box. She was so very suprised and happy!

Come back soon to see what else I have to share with you!


  1. So sweet! She looks quite delighted with here beautiful doll!

  2. I came across your blog on the random "next blog feature", and I had to say I LOVE the doll! I had one as a child! Awesome work!

  3. I had to enlage the doll to see it and it is great. I am sure she loved it. What a wonderful gift. I really like the Wonderfal set of cards.
