I was asked to share how the Baby Yoda crochet mask did in the contest at my sister’s work. We won! Sadly, and for reasons unknown, they didn’t post the doll sporting the mask. But still, my sister won anyway, although I’m convinced that if they had used the right picture, we would have had a bigger lead! But I digress, we won!!!!
I asked my sister to take another pic of the doll wearing the mask after the win. I think the doll looks pretty happy, even though she didn’t get to make her debut. 🙂
My sister asked me to make her a crocheted Baby Yoda face mask. I responded that of course I would and then didn’t make it…for two months! She asked again because she wanted to enter it in a contest at her work. They were awarding prizes for the best homemade mask. She was convinced we would win.
Well, now there was a deadline so I actually had to do it – plus prizes! I started throwing out ideas like maybe she’d like a Wonder Woman mask or a mermaid mask. Nope, she wanted Baby Yoda. I didn’t realize it at first, but I was probably baby Yodaed out. The other masks were things I’d like and not things she’d like, so I stopped procrastinating and made it.
I looked around for ideas on how to make a general crochet mask. I had already crocheted a few, but I wanted a different style for this one. Once I saw a few varieties, I designed my own with the right colors.
Just for the fun of it, I made the mask it’s own mask.
My sister also wanted her Company’s logo somewhere, so I placed it on the mask for the mask. The logo didn’t look complicated but it was challenging to represent it in crochet while making it recognizable as such. I made a few attempts until we were both satisfied.
Then she thought it would look cute if we took a picture of the mask on my big crochet Baby Yoda but it was too much baby Yoda! I suggested she take my big crochet doll instead and try it on her. The doll has only traveled from the school (where she was born) and my house. I entrusted her to my sister’s care and sent her on her way.
My sis did a fantastic job taking pictures of the doll with the mask. And it was fun to see she used one of my mom’s blankets as a backdrop. There was lots of crochet going on but it looked super cool.
All I can say is if she doesn’t win with that, I’d like to see what does win!
