She may have button eyes, but she’s a doll! She instantly became my daughter’s favorite. I made her in Maine on a rainy day last summer. She tagged along our cross country trip from Maine to California, and now lives happily with the Alien in my daughter’s bedroom.
I made the Girl with Classic Elite Bam Boo, spun from 100% bamboo, which is hypo-allergenic. Her hair is Classic Elite Flash, 100% mercerized cotton. Don’t you just love the yellow highlights in her hair?
The Alien is Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk, a 80% alpaca wool and 20% silk. His eyes are Classic Elite Star.
The Girl Pattern is in page 84 and the Alien is actually a Butterfly without wings in page 62 of Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts Amigurumi by Tomoko Takamori.
