Princess Collection 4

 And yet another Princess Collection for you!  Ariel, Lilo, and two versions of Princess Aurora.  This one may take a little bit of explanation, at least for Aurora.  I wanted to do the regular Princess Aurora from Sleeping Beauty since that was one that was repeatedly requested.  But my favorite parts of the movie are where the fairies Flora and Meriweather were fighting over which color Aurora's birthday dress was going to be -- pink or blue.  So I did that dress, too!  That lovey takes a bit more experience so I wouldn't start with her if you are a newbie to crochet.  Hey, we all have to start learning somewhere, right?  I get that...I just don't want you to get so frustrated with her dress that you decide crochet is not for you!  I promise, with a little practice, she'll come together.

And Lilo...well, right after I got done with Collection 3, I found a 20in Lilo stuffed doll at a thrift store.  I have a huge collection myself of Disney plush...most, but not all (yet!), of the Disney movies are represented.  In all honesty, I've never even seen Lilo & Stitch, but the stuffed doll was just so cute in her little hula outfit that I thought, "Hey, I can make her into a lovey, too!"  And so, here she is.  She's supposed to be shorter than the other princesses, like Tinkerbell was, so when she comes up a couple rows shorter than your other princesses don't worry...she's supposed to be that way. 

Head over to Bowtykes on Ravelry to purchase the base pattern (Thanks again, Briana!) and then pick your favorite princess!  And as always, stay tuned for new additions...
