Disney Princess Crochet Kit Review

Disney Princess Crochet $16.96 on Amazon

With Disney’s new Beauty & The Beast having come out last month, I thought it would be an appropriate time to review the Disney Princess Crochet Kit.

Note: I bought this myself, and was not endorsed for this post.

I have had my eye on this for about a year and finally got it a few months ago as a Christmas present.

The book includes patterns for 12 Disney Princess, they are (in the order they appear in the book):

  1. Cinderella
  2. Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother
  3. Snow White
  4. Aurora
  5. Ariel
  6. Belle
  7. Jasmine
  8. Pocahontas
  9. Mulan
  10. Tiana
  11. Rapunzel
  12. Merida

The items included in the kit are enough to make Cinderella & Ariel.

Kit Includes:

  • yarn in the following colors: red, yellow, cream, periwinkle, green, light green, light blue, purple and black
  • stuffing
  • an E/3.50mm crochet hook
  • 2 pairs of 12mm safety eyes
  • red embroidery floss
  • a yarn needle
  • Disney Princess Crochet book

Here are the dolls that I made from the kit.

I made Cinderella with all the included materials and Ariel with the included yarn, but used my own 9mm eyes instead of the included 12mm ones for her. I think it makes them look less bug-eyed. I also made both of them without the embroidered mouth.

Things I Didn’t Like About The Kit:

  • The included yarn felt too plastic-ey and cheap.
  • The safety eye backings are almost impossible to get on (I chipped a nail trying to get them on and eventually had to use pliers).

Things I Did Like About The Kit:

  • While I didn’t like the yarn quality, the amount of yarn included was more than enough and I had a lot left over.
  • It includes everything a beginner crocheter would need to get started including very clear tutorials at the beginning of the book on how to do the stitches.

All in all, I think that it’s a great kit and produces very cute dolls!
