Barbie's Crocheted Kitchen Furniture and Appliances

Debra Frick

Look what's cooking! Barbie is in the kitchen.

This is the second in the series of Barbie or other small doll crocheted furniture. Please feel free to change colors to fit more with what your little interior decorator would like. I have tried to use materials that anyone would have or would be easy to obtain. There are a lot more pieces to the kitchen so I would say for an average crocheter working while watching TV it will probably take a week to complete. I have also tried to make sure that there are no little pieces that can be choked on so instead of buttons I have used embroidery for handles. Buttons could be used for an older child if choking is not a hazard. I did use chop stick pieces for handles on the refrigerator, stove, and sink, but made sure they were whip stitched on very tightly. But you could just embroider some handles on for younger children.

Ad

Basic construction of these pieces is crocheting the different pieces and then slipstitching the pieces together, making a slip cover over the base pieces of Styrofoam, polystyrene, or cigarette box. Styrofoam can be cut with a serrated knife and then the edges sanded smooth with another piece of Styrofoam. Polystyrene can be cut with an electric saw which gives a nice smooth cut or with a hand saw. In a pinch pieces of wood could be used for the bases, but this would make each piece heavier, and also a hazard if thrown.

Materials

  • G crochet hook
