While cruising The Whoot for cute patterns a few months back I found the cutest dress. A Tinker Bell-esque Costume that was just precious! http://thewhoot.com.au/whoot-news/crafty-corner/tinkerbell-crochet-projects The link directed me to Family Bugs a blog by Sarah, wife, mom, crochet enthusiast, Raveler and Etsy artist.
Sarah, is a busy mom and crochet designer with a flare for photo props. Super cute! As I said my introduction to Sarah's work was this adorable little fairy dress reminiscent of Tinker Bell's dress https://familybugs.wordpress.com/2013/02/11/crochet-fairy-dress-pattern/. Of course Tinker Bell's costume is under copyright so one cannot sell a pattern but one can see some resemblance. So adorable! Sarah has designed a Rapunzel and also a Cinderella style dress. I know I loved to play dress up and my daughter loved to play dress up too so these little costumes are not only GREAT for photo props but also for play days. :) I'm all for little ones learning to use their imagination. Classic stories are a great start. https://www.etsy.com/listing/179726026/rapunzel-crochet-dress-18-to-24-months?ref=shop_home_active_2 https://www.etsy.com/listing/152799747/cinderella-crochet-dress-pattern?ref=related-5
Sarah's forte has become dolls and toy making. I think I'll turn the blog over to Tamra for her professional opinion: Holy Guacamole, what cute toys. Sarah’s main toy offering is her “dress up” doll (https://familybugs.wordpress.com/2014/01/23/dress-up-doll-free-crochet-pattern/ ) a doll that is fully customizeable. This doll originated because of the ding-blast-it Elf on the Shelf. When her kids came home telling of this toy and wanting to get one themselves, Mom did not react with a no, she came up with her own toy! The Dress up doll has appeared as an elf, any number of princesses, a mermaid, and (most hilariously) a Starfleet officer. Her other toys include an army of little knights (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/little-knights ) and tiny princesses (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/little-princesses). Even a little dragon for the knights to rescue the princess from! (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/little-dragon-6). I love these!
Sarah's creations are a lot of fun and I enjoyed looking over her patterns I know you will too! You can find her on Etsy and Ravelry. Though she has a blog and a Facebook page they haven't been updated since December 2015 so for the latest in CUTENESS check out her Etsy page! Thanks Sarah for such adorable and endearing designs!
