Melly Teddy Ragdoll Blossom Fairy
A FREE CROCHET ALONG (CAL)
The Melly Teddy Ragdoll Blossom Fairy is one of four fairies – she is the third fairy. Her older sisters are the Harvest Fairy and the Snowfall Fairy and she will be followed by one more sister during the course of 2021. She was created because I think we all need a little bit of magic in our lives and my little girl is thrilled to be Blossom Fairy’s new mommy. A Ragdoll is a cross between a lovey blanket and a soft toy and perfect to crochet for babies and small children.
Make a super cute Melly Teddy Ragdoll Blossom Fairy for that special person/s in your life.
They are fun and easy to make and are soft and snugly, perfect for cuddling and great yarn busters.
When I was a little girl, I had a Bunny Ragdoll that literally went everywhere with me. My dad used to call it Melly’s Teddy. I designed my first Melly Teddy about 4 years ago, making a sleepy bunny for my little girl. Friends saw it, liked it and ordered them from me, and eventually I took the plunge and wrote a pattern for the bunny. I released my first Melly Teddy Ragdoll “Sleepy Bunny” in June 2019, followed quickly by “Eliah Ellie”, “Rainbow Unicorn”, “Snowman Family”, “Giant Panda Bear”, “Fireman Fred”, “Pilot Bear”, Bonnie & Clyde Horse”, “Luna the Witch and Eclipse the black Cat”, Doctor Natalie, Harvest Fairy, Tom Turkey, Snowfall Fairy and the Mermaids.
The Blossom Fairy is the 17th member of the Melly Teddy Ragdoll Family.
