next doll

Thank you for all of the wonderful name suggestions, it looks like you all have names picked out for your versions. The doll pattern will be part of the little collection I’m working on, and although it will be a while before it’s totally ready I promise it’s coming together. And after that I think it might be fun to do a collection of variations on the basic doll with a stuffed wardrobe full of clothes patterns.
