Scarf and Cape

I just wanted to share the patterns for the troll accessories I made.  They would work well with any doll this size. :)

The blue knit scarf was really simple.  I just knit in garter stitch.  I used a sock yarn with a cast on of four stitches then knit until it wrapped around once then bind off.

I crocheted the pink cape using a medium weight yarn and a size I hook.
Chain 10 stitches
Row 1: One half double crochet into each stitch.
Row 2:  Two half double crochet into each stitch.
Row 3: One half double crochet into each stitch.
Sew on a button to the top of one side. With the wide spacing creating a button hole on the other side isn't necessary.  

And that's it!  Nice and easy!  I'm also working on a knit version of the cape and will post it when I'm done. :)

See ya!

Basement Treasure Hunting

So after my mini trolls arrived I started wondering where all my other trolls got to.  I decided to go Treasure Troll digging in my basement and found a few, plus some other little goodies that put a smile on my face! 

First of all I have to start off with this duffle bag I found.  I long forgot I had this and fell in love all over again!

Stored my bounty in there!

I found tons of things digging through three giant blue plastic barrels but these are the things I will never get rid of!
First of course we have the troll dolls, complete with combs, then a Furby, some funny McDonald toys, and a neat ghost buster figurine.  A cool camera, a Beauty and the Beast game and some Polly pockets!

Pocket town!

When you squeeze his arm down his head pops up and his mouth drops open!  Too funny! :D

I was just so happy I found these combs to go along with my trolls!

I used to love playing this game and I remember I also had a Little Mermaid one as well, but didn't find it.  Man!

I've been crafting! Lol!  I knit a blue scarf and I crocheted a pink cape with a star button so far, and thinking about other pieces to do.  Any ideas?... And suddenly I am feeling like creepy troll lady.  Hmm, awkward... :P

Anyway!  I had a blast going through all my old stuff!  Anybody else have any old treasures you're hanging on to?  Or any awesome finds?

On a side note, I am still blogging from my phone so the pics were taken with my phone and I apologize for the not so great quality. 

See ya later!

Hi Coffee!

Coffee just wanted to drop in and say hi, and show off his new hair do! :)

He's hiding a cookie under his chin.  Silly! ❤

They left the hair on top of his head long. I've been playing with it and spiking it up. :P

See ya later!!!

Been craftin'!

Just a little photo dump of what I've recently made and what I'm currently working on!  I've been busy! :)

Soft and fuzzy skinny scarves!

Voodoo Brew coffee cozy!

This was going to be a shawl but it turned out too small sooo it's a scarf! :)

I'm really crazy about this open weave crochet stitch right now!
