I have had this idea in my head for several months now, but I was intimidated to bring it to life because I wasn’t sure I would be able to design it the way I had pictured in my head. I finally sat down to work on it, and it came together so easily. And I am so happy with how it turned out!
If you happen to be a child of the 90s like I was, then perhaps this doll will bring back some familiarity. They were a series of dolls with plastic skirts which when turned inside out transformed into edible goodies with their hats becoming the icing. They were also scented. I thought wouldn’t they be cute and fun in crochet, too!
Tip: If you are looking to make it scented try Lily Sugar ‘n Cream Scents.
