Bekka the Funkette

Here's my first attempt to marry crochet and cross stitch. This is Bekka, a funky little thing. She's not ready for American Idol, but she has star quality and is destined for fame and fortune. The cross stitch is snipped from an Ursula Michael design called "Wild Dancing". The dress is my Bermuda Triangle motif. I added star-shaped sequins around her face, a few little beads for trim (including one in the belly button!) and a heart in each hand. I'll sew on a backing, stuff her, and send her off to Comfort Doll-land.

Wow!!! That's what I call creative!!! Bekka is really funky, love how she turned out, I'll be marrying crochet on my next doll too, think I like the faces with expressions.

Well done Annie, she's lovely!

She looks fantastic! What a star - and how encouraging to receive her as a comfort doll! She can bring hope to anyone. :-)

I love her face--so cheery and happy! I looked at the comfort dolls, but didn't completely 'get it.' Now that I have seen yours, I may be ready to take another look.

She's very cute. And I love the dragons - I just printed up those designs and like the idea of doing them all on one piece of fabric.
