Afro Puffs!!!!!

What a journey it has been!!! I started out looking for inspiration to create dolls that resemble all of my favorite girls (my mom, my niece’s, my sisters, my aunties, my cousins, my God daughter, my friends, and my students) and found it was slim pickings in the area of crochet.

This became a huge lesson for me. I learned to create what I want to see! I don’t ever want to wait on someone else to make my vision a reality!

This is only the beginning, and these are just some of my girls! They are a little bit of all the Beautifully Brown women/girls I have the honor of being connected to!

For the Boys!!!!!

I was challenged to create for boys, a hard task for me because I come from a female dominant family. But I think I did alright!
I’ve created these super hero dolls for boys and of course they have that “My Kinda Thing” element!

image

They are “super cool” if you ask me. I really enjoyed creating them!

image

All of their capes and masks are removable via buttons because they all have secret identities lol

Absolutely unique and totally “My Kinda Thing”!

Neon Nancy!!!!

I’ve been using lots of neon colors lately. While experimenting with unique color color combinations, I created “Neon Nancy”!

I love the purple touching the neon yellow! I love how bright and exciting the neon yellow is against the calm of the purple, and of course blue always adds an extra dose cool! I think she’s really cute!

Just a cool tip I use when I crochet bows; make a rectangle, take a strand of the same color yarn and tie a couple of times tightly (instead of wrapping) around the middle for a good pinch. Crochet middle and slip stitch middle piece closed. It creates a neater pinch and is also a good alternative to wrapping in the middle.
