I have designed Ken doll clothing, Bratz and baby Bratz. I started with the Ken doll trying to make crocheted clothes that was done on yarn you can actually find and still look fashionable. My girls are quite happy with them! ”

This sock is absolutely darling. I know I will make several for grandchildren and nephews, as they like them for their baths.
My grandson will be getting of these for sure.
This is so cute, and just in time for some stocking stuffers. No pun intended.
