The Wicked Witch of the West

Pure evil, or so we’re told. Dorothy is sent by the Wizard of Oz to destroy the Wicked Witch. In the story, she had only one eye — but it could see like a telescope. For the sake of symmetry I gave her both eyes, but I kept all the other wicked witch tropes alive — the green skin, the black dress, the pointed hat, the broom. She is so evil that when Toto bites her she does not bleed; her evil had dried her up ages ago. She forces Dorothy to be her slave until the time that Dorothy sloshes a bucket of water over her, melting her into non-existence.

This listing is for the crochet pattern that will make a Wicked Witch that is approximately 23 inches tall and 12 inches wide; it includes the instructions for her hat, broom, cloak, boots, dress, and corset — tons of detail!

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was written by L. Frank Baum and published in 1900. However, the book lapsed into public domain in 1956, so the characters are available for free use in other works – such as my dolls!

The Tin Woodsman

Found by Dorothy in the “Wonderful Wizard of Oz’, luckily my Tin Woodsman has less of a tendency to rust. Still, just to be sure, he also carries his trusty oil can with him. He brings his ax along to help clear the path for Dorothy and the other travelers to reach the amazing Emerald City. There, Oz grants him his wish: the gift of a heart, “made entirely of silk and stuffed with sawdust.” The Wizard soldered it into the Tin Man’s chest in the story, so I’ve left the scar where you can see it.

This listing is for the crochet pattern to make the Tin Woodsman. It includes instructions for creating a doll 22 inches tall by 10 inches wide, including his ax and oil can.

Please be aware that, although I try to make my patterns as simple and easy to understand as possible, you may get more value from them if you are an intermediate to experienced crocheter. A familiarity with sc, dc, increases, decreases, and working in the round will serve you in good stead. :)

Scarecrow

He may not have brains, but he has a fair amount of common sense, and with it he helps Dorothy and the other travelers make it all the way to the Emerald City. There, Oz grants him his wish: filling his head with pins and nails to demonstrate his sharp wit. However, it has been said that one can be so sharp they cut themselves, so I’ve substituted instead a diploma, which is how most people in this world can tell how smart you are. Is it right? Probably not. But other people have gotten diplomas and degrees for doing much less than traveling all the way to see the Wizard (and helping destroy the Witch), so Scarecrow deserves at least one.

This listing is for the crochet pattern that will make a Scarecrow doll approximately 18 inches tall and 10 inches wide, with his hat, jacket, baggy pants, shoes, gloves, and diploma.

Glinda the Good Witch

Glinda the Good Witch in the original Wizard of Oz story has red hair and bright blue eyes, and a white dress — but how boring is white? Glinda is such a pink name. It practically has sparkles on it. So I gave her a pink dress. Glinda meets Dorothy towards the end of her story, and helps Dorothy to realize the power of her silver slippers to get her back to Kansas. She also sets up the Scarecrow, Tin Woodsman, and the Cowardly Lion each to rule their own little kingdom of Oz.

This listing is for the crochet pattern that will make a Glinda that is 20 inches tall and about 12 inches wide. It includes instructions for her body, dress, petticoat, corset, mary jane-type shoes, crown, and wand — so there’s a lot of detail involved!

Dorothy

Dorothy was the girl swept up into a tornado and dropped by its force into the Wonderful land of Oz. There upon her way she receives a kiss on the forehead by the witch in the Munchkin kingdom — and also the magic slippers of the wicked witch that was killed by her falling farmhouse. In the book the slippers were silver with pointed toes. I made my version shiny and silver, but you could make yours any color you want… green, gold, blue, even red!

This pattern will make a Dorothy that is 18 inches tall and 10 inches wide. She comes with instructions for her slippers/socks, underwear, underdress, and jumper. Toto and his picnic basket will be along shortly in a separate pattern. :)

Cowardly Lion

lion-crownedIt’s tough to be such a cowardly king! The Lion follows along with Dorothy and her other friends to the fabulous Emerald City, where he hopes the Wizard of Oz will give him courage. The courage the Wizard originally provides in the book is green liquid and comes out of a bottle – lots of people do find their bravery at the bottom of a glass like that. But I decided to show our Lion as the brave and happy creature that laughs at his former cowardice. ^_^

This listing is for the Cowardly Lion Crochet pattern. This pattern will make one male lion with tail, mane, and crown. Each doll will wind up being about 18 inches tall by 10 inches wide.

Unicorn

Charming, mysterious, rare – they are drawn to purity and innocence. Back when we had such qualities, we still believed such a creature could exist. Back when we were maidens, we wanted to draw such a being near, and keep it by our side as friend and companion.

For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted a unicorn all my own. The fortunate thing about adulthood is that we can sometimes satisfy the wishes we had as children. I created this pattern to make a unicorn for myself, and now I’d love to share this pattern with you.

Also, I’d noticed that I’ve had real difficulty finding a realistic-looking crochet pattern to create an equine stuffed animal, so I decided to build one myself. Sometimes mysticism must give way to pragmatism, and necessity is the mother of invention. :)

This listing is for the crochet pattern that will when finished create “Starbright” the unicorn, approximately 20 inches tall by 20 inches long. This is a sizable snuggly creature, and definitely a unique project!

Pegasus

Son of Poseidon – whenever his hoof touched the ground a fresh spring broke forth. Perhaps occasionally caught but never broken. Pegasus finally found solace on a high mountain in a sacred place, carrying Zeus’s thunder and ridden by the Dawn.

I put my personal spin on Pegasus in this pattern… here he’s still in his rebellious Nightmare phase, stung by Heaven’s gadfly, searching for some sort of peace to be found between earth and sky.

Merpeople

merpeople-bothIt’s a beautiful life: combing the shore under the sea all day for pearls and bits of pretty shell, side by side with the one you love — and only coming to surface when the sun is setting, to watch the sky change colors and the stars come out. We don’t sing the sailors to doom, ever — but sometimes they want to follow us anyway.

This Listing is for the crochet pattern to make both the merman “Storm” and the mermaid “Misty”. Both dolls are twenty inches from head to fin, and nine inches from arm to arm.

Demons

The Demon and Demoness both turned out adorably wicked. He wound up having a sort of Antonio Banderas thing going on, while she definitely has a Scarlett-Gone-With-The-Wind vibe. He’s got a hot zoot suit and she practically DEMANDED a blue dress. They’re ready for a night out of dancing and dreaming.

This listing is for the Demon and Demoness Crochet pattern. This pattern will make both male “Samkiel” and female “Zehanpuryu” demons. Each doll will wind up being about 18 inches tall by 10 inches wide with a 3 foot wingspan.
