STRAWBERRY DOLL


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.
