Barbie Sparkle Dress & Accessories Ensemble Free Crochet Patterns!
Let's Crochet An Outfit For Barbie!
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 dress and 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 intricate crocheted and knitted Barbie clothes from a lady in our neighborhood for me. I still, in fact, have them! That just shows the enduring quality of Barbie heirlooms you can create today that will be treasured by someone special forever!
Can you just imagine the look on that little girl's face when she opens her new Barbie accessories under the Christmas tree? Or just have fun dressing 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 doing this lens!
I've created a dress for which the pattern appears below. The dress is done in double crochet except for the neckline detail, which requires double treble crochet.
I've just added a Tote Bag and a Striped Mobius Scarf for miss Barbie to enjoy and I'm planning on adding more accessories for this outfit. I hope you enjoy making her ensemble in lots of different colors. I know I will!

Wouldn't it be fun to give your Barbie clothing on a Barbie doll to your favorite little girl? (Or to anyone who loves Barbie, including yourself!)
A Word About Yarn & Thread Selection...
You may use different yarns such as 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!

Every crocheter sometimes needs a stitch marker to keep from losing her place! These are so handy to have on hand. And they won't rust your work like a metal pin either.
I own and love every size of this crochet hook. They allow me to keep crocheting despite severe arthritis in my hands.

I own and love this yarn cutting pendant! It's so handy when I'm working in stripes and have to cut yarn frequently! No more searching for where I laid the scissors!
A Note From Your Designer...
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
