If you have been following me and my blogs, you’ll know that I started making a few teddy bears for a charity drive and that reminded me of how much fun it is to make toys.. so here I am off to have more fun. I am not going to think about where these little dolls are head – but they are sure going to make one little kid happy and spread a few smiles.
I found a pattern for this cute little doll right here at Orange by Anya Sadovskaya. This is not a free pattern, but I’d say it’s well worth the investment.

This pattern was initially written in several foreign languages, & there is now a pattern written in English too, titled Orange by Anya Sadovskaya.
Now while this is not a (totally) free pattern, I thought I should show you just how cute she is.. just to tempt you to make one yourself.
and just to tempt you further, let me photo bomb you and show off, just a little bit...

I love art and craft - and am grateful for this hobby that keeps me busy and out of 'mischief'.
We (as a family) are also staunch protectors of stray animals and will continue to do our bit to make this a safe world for them.
We strongly believe in R-R-R and several of my projects will show this.
