Crocheting the Barbie Witch's Hat
*I am planning to make her hat be a free pattern. The rest of her outfit will be a paid pattern.
Crocheting Barbie Witch's Dress
See the trouble is, I knew how I wanted the the top of the sleeves to look, but I was going about how I started her the wrong way. Normally, I crochet the sleeves after I have finished the main part of the top, however that was just not working because it was hard to figure out how the dress should look without the sleeves to compare if it would combine well. So, I switched it up. I crocheted each sleeve until I got them how you see in the picture above. Then, I started to crochet the top part of the dress whilst incorporating the sleeves into it at the same time. Success! No more frogging for the top.
I took a few WIP pictures of this step because it has inspired me with a really cute idea for a barbie sweater and some other neat tops, but I digress.
I hit another block once I had finished crocheting the top part of the dress. How in the world was I going to make a witchy skirt? Did I want to make it long or short? Jagged or more neutral? Did I want to make a slit so that she could properly ride her broom? Should I make the dress completely black, or add a splash of orange to tie in with the hat? I had no idea what I wanted! So, I turned to everyone on facebook again for ideas, inspiration and opinions.
Everyone had lovely ideas, and some even shared some pictures with me on what they thought would be neat. Some of the great ideas was to add a splash of purple, definitely to make it jagged or have a slit, and most agreed that the dress should be on the long side. Just brainstorming with everyone again, got the creative juices to flow. You will see that in the following two pictures.
As you can also see from the first of the two photos below, the skirt part of the dress is worked vertically instead of the normal horizontal like it was done for the top.
Knickers, Stockings and Heels
Above you can see what it looks like with one heel and one side of the stockings completed. I have since completed the knickers, stockings and heels. I just haven't taken the photo of it yet. I am saving it for when her set is completed.
The Finishing Touches
Barbie Witch's apparel has been completed, but she still needs her broom, and perhaps even a black kitty cat. I was thinking about making her a cauldron, but I am thinking of scratching out that idea, unless you all want me to make it. Do you all think she needs anything else to complete her outfit, or do you think she is perfect as is once she gets her broom?
***I will also be creating a crochet pattern for this Crochet Barbie Witch set once the design is complete. When I release the pattern, I will give all my newsletter subscribers a chance to receive a copy for free (details will be in the next newsletter ~ Oct. 07th), and then, a discounted rate will be available for everyone for a limited time.***
What do you think of her so far?
