Brighten Barbie's Day With Some New Crocheted Accessories!

Don't we all love the versatility that a few new accessories can provide our wardrobe? Your Barbie is no different! Your favorite little girl (or you!) can have her Barbie rocking the latest fashion trends in crochet with my new free crochet accessory patterns.

Since Barbie was born in 1959, she has always been about mirroring fashion's best looks. I love fashion, and I've loved Barbie since I was a child. When I was a little girl, my mother would buy these intricate crocheted and knitted Barbie clothes from a lady in our neighborhood for me. I still, in fact, have them! They, like me, are now well over 50 years old. That just goes to show the enduring quality of Barbie heirlooms you can create today that will be treasured by someone special for many decades to come!

Can you just imagine the look on that special little girl's face when she opens her new Barbie accessories under the Christmas tree or for her birthday? Or you could just have fun dressing up your own Barbie! I'll admit, it's been a few decades since I actually "played Barbie," but I've had a lot of fun designing this pattern!

I've created a simple tank dress with a scarf, tote bag, belt, and hat for miss Barbie to enjoy. I hope you enjoy making sets in lots of different colors. I know I will!

A Word About Yarn & Thread Selection...

You may use different scrap yarns or threads with good results! Just make sure to keep them similar in weight and thickness so as not to throw off the pattern.

I recently purchased this for myself. It's handy to know how much yarn a given project requires when you're going to be making more than one!

This is so much more attractive than what I used for years, a 3 pound coffee can with a hole cut in the plastic lid! Anybody testify? Bonus... this won't snag your thread, either.

Hi, I'm SheilaSchnauzies, also published as SheilaSparkles, and my life's passion is designing in Crochet! I also love to share gifts with friends, and this pattern is my gift to you! I give away about 95% of my pattern designs free. The other 5% are sold on my pattern store at Craftsy.com to benefit the vet expenses of my Miniature Schnauzer Rescue, Sheila's Schnauzies.

Just one little favor, please... I would appreciate it if you do not post this pattern anywhere on the Internet or in the 'real world.' Instead, you are most welcome to provide a link to this webpage.

I use a system I call the "Official Schnauzer Difficulty Rating" just for fun, to rate the difficulty of my patterns. If it's a 3/5 or more, I'll explain why I consider it more difficult. A few of my designs use techniques that are a bit unconventional! If it's one of those patterns, I'll warn you ahead of time. I do a lot of custom-fit patterns, for example. They are made to fit YOU, not a measurement from a chart. They're surprisingly easy to do and actually end up fitting. That's a good thing, yes?

So glad you found my patterns! I hope you really enjoy making whatever it is you're making! Crochet hugs, -Sheila
