Crochet Baby Yoda at Disneyland

Ok, I promised my niece a crochet Baby Yoda. After finishing the first one for hubby, I told her I was making hers. I sent her pictures of the work in progress and she was extremely excited. When the doll was all finished… ummm, hubby wanted it. I had tweaked the original pattern (there was no pattern) of the first doll and this one came out much better. The face, the proportions, everything! Hubby really really wanted it. I know, it was my fault, I shouldn’t have said anything to my niece about that doll being for her. I mean, I live with the man. He really wanted it. After all, I could make her a new one. It could be argued I could make HIM a new one, but I live with the man! We were going to see my niece at Disneyland in a few days and I hatched a plan. I would make her a brand new one in the two days before I saw her.

But there was a problem (isn’t there always?). I couldn’t finish it in time! I was up till 1 am working on it and I managed to finish the body. I was soooo tired and had to get up at 6 in the morning to head to Disneyland. I worked it out that I would crochet in the car (did I mention I get car sick?), crochet in lines, and crochet anytime I was sitting. I also had to convince her to trust that the second (3rd?) doll would be as good, or even better than the one I promised her.

We headed out

I found a backpack my daughter had given me that would be perfect to store my crochet supplies as well as snacks and my other junk I take to Disneyland. The backpack had handles as well as straps. It was perfect. I packed everything up.

Help me!

I figured we’d hit traffic and maybe had an hour of crochet time in the car (who wishes for traffic?!). We didn’t hit any but on a good note, I didn’t get carsick so I had a solid half hour of crochet time to work on the doll’s outfit.

Hubby had his Baby Yoda and he got a lot of attention for his doll (action figure?).
