Colorful Lana Doll(s)

I would like you to meet these lovely and colorful Lana dolls.

Lana Doll

Created this pattern two weeks ago as addition to one book on small crochet toys and dolls (that I will talk about some time in the future). This is one of two patterns I made for this book. The second pattern will show and share with you soon, and both will be available only through the shop. So far you can find it in my Etsy shop.

If you liked BB dolls, than you will looove these little ones. Easy to make, and long lasting! I have tried to come up with

  • the doll that can fit any little girls bag or back pack,
  • durable doll that can be played with for many years,
  • doll that can be washed,
  • doll which can change her clothes/shoes….
  • doll girls will love!

So far, both of my nieces, 4 and 7 years of age love it. Hope your little ones will feel the same!

Before I finish for today, wanted to mention that Flip from Maya the Bee movie is progressing pretty nice. So far missing only the hat to finish the pattern. If times allows me, he might be finished and pattern shared next week. Fingers crossed!

Here is little preview on how the Flip looks so far.


Have a wonderful day and happy working Monday tomorrow.

  1. Oh Vanja, they are adorable. You are a crochet goddess. Congratulations on your book.

    1. thank you sweetie. The book is not mine, I am just participating with two patterns and tried my best with these dolls 🙂 So happy to hear you like them.

  2. I love the sweet little dolls and it is wonderful to have them into the book. Can’t wait to see Flip, when he is finished. He looks great so far and just like the one in the movie.

    1. Hi Karin,
      Glad you like Lana Doll 🙂 She (they) are really cute little ones and my nieces love them. Flip was hard task to achieve but ending pretty well. Wanted to make open mouth, but ended up with Sesame Street character more than Flip (think it’s because I have very little time to get into the pattern these days, and when my niece orders a toy it has to be finished yesterday) 😀
      Hugs dear friend.
