In this post, I am going to show you how to turn your Avery doll base (available in my Etsy store here) to make Princess Belle. This post will include a guide on how to do Belle’s hair, facial features (eyebrows, eyes and nose) and a detailed tutorial on how to make her dress. Also included is a downloadable PDF template for Belle’s dress, which is made out of felt. For Belle’s face, I followed the same instructions as I did with Tiana. The spacing is all the same but the directions begin to differ once you get to the eyebrows and the hairline. If you have a sewing machine I recommend using it for Belle’s dress. This will save you a lot of time because doing the ruffle detail on the dress by hand may take a while. BEFORE AND AFTER PICTURES OF BELLE WHAT YOU WILL NEED: (Template size is based on the Avery doll made using 4ply yarn and a 2.5mm hook)

I hope that you found it clear and easy to follow. However, if you need help with any part of it then I am always available to assist. I am not sure if there was an easier way to get the ruffle detail on the dress – I may have to do some investigating. But for now, it works and gives the desired result. Thank you so much and until the next time – Happy crocheting! Chantelle X
