Great Desins for Barbie lovers Mar 28, 2008
I love Barbie and I love crochet. These are fresh updated designs for her to look fabulous all year round. No one should loose their inner child. This book will help me keep mine close by.
Great patterns. Mar 2, 2008
The book was in excellent condition and arrived quickly. The patterns are great looking but some of the threads used to make the outfits in the book have been discontinued and I haven't found substitutes.
Cant wait to Get Started! Sep 6, 2007
These are the clothes I wish I had for MY Barbie when I was a kid. I now have grandchildren to make them for and couldnt ask for a better book to go by. Fabulous patterns! Get it....this book will not disappoint.
Doll crazy May 7, 2007
A great book (I also have the Knit for Barbie) but a little difficult to follow...but I will continue working on some of the items.
Too hard to find the yarn required Aug 16, 2006
I love the pictures. My little girls look at it all the time. But it is very hard to find the suggested yarn. The clothes are very cute but I wouldn't buy it again. I am not good at finding substitute yarns nor do I have the patience for it. Her knitting Barbie book is the same.
