– Crochet hooks (for 33cm/13inches tall doll):
• for the body 4mm/US G,
• for the clothes 2,5mm/US C,

NOTE: You can use larger hooks for the flowers, you will just end up with larger flowers.
- For the head and the body use Aran (4) weight yarn. (I used Red Heart Soft.)
- For the clothes use Fine (2) weight yarn. (I used Catania Denim from Schachenmayr.)
- For the flowers use crochet thread or some very fine yarn.
- For the hair use any yarn you like.
- Tapestry needle
- Something to stabilize the head. (I used an old pen. You can choose a wooden or plastic stick, just remember to use something without sharp and pointy ends if you’re making this for a child.)
- Safety eyes (I used 10mm)
- Little pieces of white felt for the eyes
- White sewing thread
- Sewing needle
- Embroidery floss
- Paint, craft chalk or make-up (I used make-up for adding some face features. Use something non-toxic if you’re making this for a child.
