Free Crochet Pattern preview - Lorraine's Dance Dress

     Hi everyone!  Today, I don't have enough time to post a pattern, so I'm posting a preview of the pattern that I will post next week.  This is another outfit for Barbie and is from Back to the Future.  If you haven't seen this movie (it is from the 80s) just Google it and you'll probably see a picture of a girl wearing a dress that looks like the picture below.
     For this dress, I made a top, crocheted a lacy skirt, and put one of my Barbie Romantic Tutu.  It makes the dress fuller and also makes it a little less see-through.  I also crocheted a gold bracelet with metallic gold thread.  
     Enjoy the preview!  I look forward to sharing the pattern with you next week!

Annie's First Birthday Photos and Free Pattern Preview

     Hi!  Today, I will be sharing some pictures of Annie's first birthday!  I will also be sharing a preview of the next FREE pattern to be shared here next week.  Incidentally, it happens to be the gift I made Annie for her birthday. :)


We had a nice day this week, so, we went to our local playground.


We went on the swings,


Looked around,



And took a nap. :)

And now for the preview...

This little ball is perfect for little hands - Annie loves rolling it on the floor.  It is very simple and easy to make.  The pattern only requires single crochets and some minor increases.  



Next week I will share the pattern for this ball.  Until then!

Cinderella's Blue Ball Gown - Free Crochet Pattern

     Here is the pattern for Cinderella's blue ball gown!  I hope you enjoy this pattern.  Has anyone seen the movie yet?       





Copyright; This pattern is my own design.  In no way I have copied from anyone's pattern.  You may sell what you make from this pattern, but you may NOT sell the pattern itself.  Do not claim this pattern as your own.  All rights reserved, 2015. 


Materials

Size 10 thread in blue, cream, and dark blue (I used Aunt Lydia's Classic 10)
1.8 mm hook
White and blue tulle (be sure that the blue tulle matches your blue crochet thread!)
Top 
Row 1: With light blue crochet thread, ch 42, sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in each of next 17 sts, 1 hdc in next st, 1 dc in next st, 1 tr in next st, 1 dc in next st, 1 hdc in next st, 1 dc in each of last 17 sts, turn. 

Row 2-3: Ch 1, 1 dc in each of next 17 sts, 1 hdc in next st, 1 dc in next st, 1 tr in next st, 1 dc in next st, 1 hdc in next st, 1 sc in each of the last 17 sts, turn.

Rows 17-18: Ch 1, 1 sc in each st across, turn.  Fasten off. 

Sleeves 
Note; The sleeves are a bit complicated, so I hope I have explained everything clearly.  

 Cut 2 pieces of blue tulle 7 inches long.  Fold each piece until it is about a centimeter wide.  Gather one end of each folded piece.  Sew the gathered edges of each piece together, making sure to hide the rough edges.  Sew the joined piece to the crocheted top. 

Butterflies (make 3 in each color; cream, light blue, and dark blue)

Ch 7.  Sl st in 1st st.  Gather middle of ch circle.  Sew each butterfly onto the sleeves of the dress.  

Skirt For the skirt, all you have to do is make two long, white tulle skirts and layer a blue one over those two skirts.  Click here and follow the directions to make two white skirts and one blue one.  For the first white skirt, cut strips of tulle that are 6 inches wide and 16 inches long.  For the second white skirt, cut strips of tulle that are 6 inches wide and 16 1/2 inches long.  Sew these two skirts together.  Make a blue skirt with strips that are 17 inches long.  Sew this skirt to the other two white skirts.  Now sew the whole skirt (which is all three skirts sewn together) to the top you crocheted earlier.

Cinderella's Blue Ball Gown - Crochet Pattern Preview

     Hi, everyone!  Here is a preview of the next free crochet pattern to be shared here; let me present to you Cinderella's Blue Ball gown!  This pattern will be shared next Saturday, which is March 14th, the day after Cinderella comes to theaters!  I cannot wait to see the movie, and neither can my siblings. :)
     Today, I will just be sharing a preview of the pattern, and next week I will post the pattern.  Take a look at the pictures below - I'm sure you're already looking forward to making this gown for Barbie. :) 



I love how pretty Cinderella's ball gown is.  It is fairly easy to make, yet the finished product is stunning.  



Don't you love the butterflies on the bodice?  It gives such a magical touch to the outfit.  



I have to say that I love how full the skirt is!  All I did was use my romantic skirt pattern (find my free tutorial here) and layered two white skirts underneath a blue one.  It was super simple!  


I hope you enjoyed this preview!  I'm really excited about sharing this pattern with you all next week!

Easy Ribbed Leg Warmers- Free Crochet pattern

     Hi, everyone!  It's snowing here where I live, so there isn't much light for taking pictures.  I hope my pictures aren't blurry or grainy - I hate grainy pictures. :)
     Here is another free pattern I designed; Easy Ribbed Legwarmers.  Currently, I have only made one pair and I find them super comfy and warm.  I need to buy some pink yarn, so I can make new ones that I can wear to ballet class. :)
     This pattern can also be modified to fit differently.  If you want longer legwarmers, chain more.  If you want wider legwarmers, crochet more rows.


Copyright; This pattern is my own design.  In no way I have copied from anyone's pattern.  You may sell what you make from this pattern, but you may NOT sell the pattern itself.  Do not claim this pattern as your own.  All rights reserved, 2015. 


Materials 
Worsted weight yarn
5.5 mm hook

Directions (make 2)

Note: These legwarmers stretch A LOT.  When you try them on, they will feel VERY snug, but after wearing them a few times, they will stretch.  

Row 1: Ch 47, hdc in 3rd ch from hook, 1 hdc in each ch across, turn.

Rows 2-18: Ch 2, IN BACK LOOPS ONLY, 1 hdc in each st across, turn.  Fasten off at end of row 18. 

Sew long ends of piece together.  Weave in all ends.


I hope you enjoyed this free pattern!  Stay warm if it's snowing were you live. :)
