Tunisian Crochet Dolls

I love doing Tunisian crochet. I fell in love with it when I was trying to follow a pattern for a cell phone case. It said crochet but it looked like knitting. I was intrigued enough to look into it for several reasons. One, I wanted to make that phone case and two, I didn’t like knitting but liked the look of knitting. So I could pretend to knit while crocheting? I definitely needed to do that.

So after I learned how to do it and finished my phone case, I was hooked. It became a permanent part of my repertoire. But I like making dolls and I had to figure out how to make them using this method. I didn’t know at the time you could do Tunisian crochet in the round so I looked at it as cloth and what shapes I would need in order to sew them together to make a doll. I got to work and created these dolls.
