Modification Monday: Ballerina
Original Pattern: Bunny
Knitter Extraordinaire: Serena (Rav Id)
Mods: Serena used the body of the bunny pattern but turned it into a ballerina doll, by changing the colours to reflect a person in a pink ballerina costume, including grafting on a 'tutu', adding a tambourine, and a hairstyle that was similar to the one her daughter wears in ballet class. Project page is here.
What Makes This Awesome: I love that this little ballerina is so personalized- it's a replica of the costumes, props, and hairstyles worn by her daughter and the other little girls in her daughter's ballet class. I'm sure every kid would love a doll that is knitted to look just like them, doing the same things that they love to do! This is such a great gift idea. And seriously- look how cute that ballerina is!!
