That is really good! I hadn't even thought to ask my mom to do something like this!!! She's so wonderful at crocheting. You did GREAT! : And what's better... I see now strings! I'm guessing you've been crocheting for a couple few years... hehe
Just browsing your gallery, you make a lot of great stuff. You should seriously consider selling your work. I would even consider investing in you to make it happen if you ever choose to embark on such at task.
Thank you so much for the kind comments! I'm actually already in the process of laying the groundwork to open an online store. It's definitely a boost to know that the dA community thinks it's a good idea as well!
Not to bring you down but I don't understand how a hat and gloves could get a DD. If I really wanted to I could simply make something like that. And the photo is to light and dark in areas. I simply think the mods of dA are getting lazy with who they let have DDs.
