Poppy

A Dawn Toussaint pattern
I would like to introduce you all to Poppy; my latest finished project! I started Poppy back in about April, but because of work and social commitments, I haven't had the time to work on her solidly and get her finished...much to my frustration. 

Poppy was requested by my neighbour, who saw another version of this pattern that I had made; Fleur. She fell in love with it, and said that she would love for me to make a version for her friend's daughter, Poppy. I really loved making Fleur, and Dawn's patterns are such a joy to work with, so I was looking forward to working on this one! So glad it's finished though; does anyone else get those really stale periods where they can't focus on anything? Nightmare!


Poppy is yellow in colour, with big green eyes and red shoes. She has a handmade red dress, with a button embellishment on the front. She also has cute red freckles on her cheeks.

I'm pleased with how she turned out. I must admit, it's not been my favourite piece to work on, because it's taken me so long, but I'm so glad she's finished and looks as pretty as she does! I really hope her new owner enjoys her, and appreciates her as much as I do. 

Huge thankful shout out to Dawn Toussaint, for her beautiful patterns by the way. You are a complete genius; I'm in awe!

  2. Hi Andrea!

    Yep, you can find it here on Ravelry!

    I'm glad you like her =) I think I'm replying the right way...apologies if not. I'm not used to blogspot at all!

  3. Beautiful. I find that when I hit a spot I try doing something else that is quick. It gets me refocused.

  4. I'm exactly the same. I started work on a new, quick pattern but ran out of yarn. So while I waited for the new yarn to arrive in the post, I finished off this one. I'm glad you like her. I'll be working on another of Dawn's patterns after my current project!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  5. How sweet, I have never got the hang of crochet although I did manage once to crochet a flower to put on one of my cards, must try it again.
