Last year, I allowed Helenmay Crochet Special Donor Members to make crochet requests.  I limited the number of crochet requests allowed because it takes time to design and complete the crochet request.  I allowed a bonus crochet design request by Susie Lafferty who requested a crochet girl and boy ragdoll. The requests were free with the understanding that it would take time to complete them.  Since I couldn’t get to her crochet request last year, I made her a Helenmay Crochet Special Donor Member for the year 2020 as well.

I had a lot of fun designing my crochet girl and boy ragdolls, and I decided to name them Jack and Jill, which is inspired by the nursery rhyme books that I read when I was a child.

In the video, I show how I used these curlers to help make the head a little bit sturdier. If you love to make crochet dolls you will like all of the different sized curlers this pack has. Also there are large holes in the curlers that the tapestry/darning needle fit easily through. Click here, or the picture below, to go directly to the affiliate link.

Last year, I allowed Helenmay Crochet Special Donor Members to make crochet requests.  I limited the number of crochet requests allowed because it takes time to design and complete the crochet request. TnDancer requested a crochet French Bulldog on 9Jul2019. The requests were free with the understanding that it would take time to complete them. I started designing TnDancer’s crochet request in APR 2020 with a planned completion date before June2020.  Since I couldn’t get to her crochet request last year, I made her a Helenmay Crochet Special Donor Member for the year 2020 as well.

A friend of mine recently asked me if I could crochet a Labrador Retriever dog for her friend that recently lost her beautiful brown Labrador dog named “Mink.”

My friend wanted to pay me for the crochet work, but we both thought it would be better to donate the money to my friend’s favorite charity in memory of “Mink.” My friend chose the following charity in memory of “Mink”:
