A Birthday Surprise: Crocheted Betty Boop

In between all this Christmas holiday making, I have a few birthdays.

My birthday is on Monday. Logan's birthday is on December 11th. And my dad's girlfriend Shai's birthday is on December 13th.

So I decided to take a break from holiday making and make one extra special dolly for Shai.

I know that she likes Betty Boop. At least I hope she does. She has put a few photos up on Facebook that lead me to believe I'm on the right track though.


I used this pattern to make Betty. It was a neat pattern with lots of sculpting. I added the earrings and bracelets myself and made the face out of felt instead of trying to crochet nice eyes.

She turned out super cute! I may even have an order for another Betty soon if I ever get done all of these Christmas gifts. Lane increased my list the other day by stating that not only does she have 2 teachers, but she has 2 teaching assistants and a ballet teacher to make for. ACK!

Anyhoo... I'll be sending Betty out to Victoria for the 13th. Maybe she'll sing Happy Birthday to Shai? :D
