Disney Princess Crochet

With the exception of the included safety eyes and crochet hook, I am impressed by the quality of this kit. The kit includes enough yarn to finish one each of two Disney Princesses Cinderella and Ariel. After that, you will need to purchase additional yarn, fiberfill, safety eyes, and other assorted items to finish more of the characters. The kit does call for worsted weight acrylic yarn but does not tell what type of yarn was used. While it does not state it exactly, I would hazard a guess that that is what is included.
The book includes instructions for 12 Disney Princess characters. They are: Cinderella, Fairy Godmother, Snow White, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan, Tiana, Rapunzel and Merida.
There are nine colors of yarn included in the kit. They are: (larger skeins) red, yellow, medium blue, off-white, (smaller bundles) light green, bright green, light blue, lavender, and black. Also included is a tapestry needle for seaming the figures and adding features with the included red cotton embroidery floss, an inexpensive crochet hook in size 3.50 (US E/4), four 12 mm plastic safety eyes and fiberfill. There are also fairly detailed instructions including many diagrams from the basics to more advanced concepts including embroidery stitches. Unfortunately, there are no directions included for how to place the safety eyes. I am sure that this information can be found on the internet with a simple search. The directions do tell you exactly where to place the eyes. I must admit that I won’t be using these eyes but will instead find ones that I can purchase so all of my figures will be consistent. Either that or I will embroider eyes on using basic satin stitches.
