9 Patterns Inspired by Cinderella!

March 13th, 2015

Was Cinderella your favorite Disney Princess when you were a little girl? Well, she’s making a big comeback! Disney’s new live-action Cinderella comes to theaters this weekend to bring magic to a new generation. Do you think this new film will be a fun update or is the classic version your all-time favorite?

Inspired by the new movie, I’ve put together some patterns that can bippity-boppity-boo your little one into a real princess. The projects include our new crocheted Topsy Turvy Princess Doll that transforms with a flip from day to night! And the adorable Fairytale Headband and Wand set requires no knit or crochet skills- a great project to craft with the kids!
