Spring Time Doll, Bunny & Chick Vase Doll Free Crochet Patterns

 This cute little girl is ready for spring! She's made from one of those air freshener doll you see at most craft stores that you don't know what to do with any more. Pattern here.
 She sits atop a clear vase that I have filled with candy. There is even one hiding in her basket!
 Now she has turned in a little White Bunny. Pattern here.
 Her little hat even has a bunny head and ears on it.
 Now she is a chick. Would she look good in several pastel colors all lining a shelf or table?
Fabric paints are what I used to give detail to her hat. Her pattern can be found here

Christening Gown, Bonnet, Shoes and Bib Free Crochet Pattern

 This week's free pattern is for a Blue Christening Set. It includes the gown (done in yarn)
 Here you can see the sleeve detail and neckline plus trim. Trim was made using size 10 crochet thread
 The trim looks harder than it is. You basically work it to fit the gown and then sew it on.
 Shoes with more trim and ribbon.
 Bib to keep the gown clean.
 Bonnet on a doll.
