Easter Bonnet for Barbie's friend

Here is an Easter Bonnet for a doll, which was heaps of fun to make.
Easter Bonnet for a doll
This is a Teresa doll, a friend of Barbie made by Mattel. I found this particular individual on sale about a year ago at the Rocklea Sunday market for $3. She was more expensive than usual because she was wearing a dress, a naked Barbie usually sells for only a dollar or two.

For this bonnet I used lemon 4 ply cotton and my 2mm hook. For the tiny flower I used some pink acrylic baby yarn, and the 2mm hook. I had a go at writing the pattern for this hat, but after talking it over with Dell, my crochet teacher, I've decided to spend some more time on it before I share it. Let me know if you would like it. I made a second tiny pink flower to go on the matching top.

The other clothes in this outfit I made last year some time and have never blogged about them. I made the pretty yellow strapless top quite a while ago, and I'm very happy with it. There are no fastenings, it just pulls up over the waist. Its as small as it can be while able to do this, then the stitch on the torso caves in to give the doll a waist. I used my favourite stitch handed down to me by my grandmother for the torso and some yellow baby yarn.
Autumn accessories for an Easter outfit
The yellow and pink poncho I made last year as well, it was a bit fiddly to make but a bit of fun. Again I used 3 ply baby yarn and some fluffy craft yarn. The matching yellow pants I made recently by joining two folded granny squares. They are joined simply at the front like fishermen's pants using a drawstring. For the pants I used a 2mm hook and 3 ply acrylic baby yarn made in Australia.

With winter fast approaching, a poncho and pants are just what my Easter doll will need on a crisp Autumn day!
