I’m back! I’ve had a rest from blogging for the past three weeks but I’ve continued to crochet in the background.
Today I’m pretty excited to show you my latest project. I needed to come up with an idea for a little girl’s 4th birthday present. The theme of the party is How to Train Your Dragon. I immediately thought of the character, Astrid.
I decided to make something a little different and came up with an Astrid tutu dress. I crocheted the bodice using my favourite bodice pattern from bustingstitches.com
Moda Vera Gelato in red – acrylic cotton blend available from Spotlight
4.5mm crochet hook
Ribtex Tulle Ribbon – 1 roll of black and 2 rolls of bronze glitter
8 ply acrylic in white
1cm wide red ribbon to tie back.
i used the pattern for a 5-7 year old as the cotton blend has a bit less stretch in it. It will probably be on the big side but that gives her more opportunity to wear it for longer.
It’s a bit tricky to see but the white crocheted pieces are skulls(!). I used this pattern to make the skulls. I wasn’t really sure if I liked the skulls but they can easily be removed if needed.
So there you have my Astrid crochet tutu dress fit for a warrior princess!
