I am excited to show you my crochet moon fairy doll, a VIP project I´ve been working on for the past few weeks. It`s an order from my sister. She requested a gift for a baby girl named Luna. And she had a vision of a girl sitting on the moon, inspired by the logo of DreamWorks animation studio. Here`s how it turned out.

When she first told me about the vision she had, I instantly thought of a moon shaped dream catcher instead of an actual crocheted moon. I´m really proud the way I figured out how to turn the moon frame into a crocheted moon, and a very stylish one. To be honest, I´d use this in my bedroom without a hesitation. It`s very minimalist ja lightweight.

At the beginning, I wasn`t quite sure how the doll should look like, but I wanted it to have bending legs, so it would sit as naturally as possible. Therefore, I skipped the idea of a skirt, and went for a striped pajamas. She`s like a newer version of Cuddly baby. To emphasize the girlish look, I added braided hair. The elf ears make her look a bit mysterious.

I am super happy with how this crochet moon fairy doll turned out. And, I will give myself some bonus points for not buying any new yarn for this project :)

    I just finished my Luna (except for the hanging ribbon) and put a picture of her on Ravelry. Will the pattern ever be posted there so that I can link my project?
    I just love her and all of your patterns!
    Thank you!

      Hi, Linda! I´m glad to hear you like it. I do plan on writing the pattern but haven`t yet received the moon frames to continue working on this design. I will keep my followers posted through my blog and newsletter.
