Marcela the Mexican Doll (Crochet Pattern)

by - June 09, 2020

Dear fellow crocheters,

I'm thrilled to share with you my fourth (and newest) member of the Darling Dolls International Series!  Please say hello to Marcela, the Mexican Doll!  


Here she is, posing for a group photo with the other lovely ladies of the International Series!  From left to right, it's Primrose the American Prairie doll, Marcela herself, Hana the Korean Hanbok doll, and Sanjana the East Indian doll. 

Marcela is a Spanish lady wearing a traditional Mexican dress with the colors white, green, and red.  She loves to sing and dance to Latin music, and adorn her hair with large, vivid flowers to match her equally-vivid personality.


I had a lot of fun designing her lovely top.  I just adore the bright colors!

Here's a peek at Marcela before I styled her hair with a braid.  I think she's quite pretty with her hair down as well!

Of course, adding blush really breathes life into her!  It's one of the finishing touches that I love using on my dolls. 

All in all, I am really happy with how this little lady turned out!  It was definitely a fun project designing a Mexican-inspired outfit and I'm looking forward to getting more ideas for my next International doll!

Want to save this pattern page for later?  Pin it to your Amigurumi or Crochet board!

This written pattern is available in my Ravelry and Etsy shop.  This project is recommended for an intermediate crocheter due to the skills needed to cut out felt shapes and sew details.  The pattern includes photo references to guide you through the crocheting process!

As an end note, if you're interested in the other members of the Darling Dolls Series, you may check out their links below!


I hope you enjoyed reading about Marcela!  If you have any suggestions on which doll I should make next in my International Series, please drop a comment below.  I'd love to hear your ideas!

Take care friends, and happy crafting!

  1. I love your doll! I have some suggestions for you... Fleur the french doll, Elizabeth the England doll.Also, how about giving people a discount on their first purchase? That way they will be more tempted to buy a pattern from you, use it and find out what it is like. That way,the next time they want to buy one of your patterns they will buy without hesitation.

  2. Lovely dolls. They all look so cute together!

  3. All of your dolls are beautiful I have made the pixie unicorn doll for my granddaughter. She loves it so much. I have been helped so much by your wonderful videos. I would never have tried to make amigurumi if it were not for wonderful people like you. Thank you so much for helping a older lady enjoy new ideas in crochet. And thank you for sharing your patterns, You are so sweet and generous. I am grateful to have found your site.
