I was supposed to make this for my Daughter's Birthday a week ago, but with all the crafts and things I had to get done for the party I didn't get to her.  I am so thrilled with how she came out I can't wait to give her to my daughter.  I think she will love her!
She is 100% my own pattern, however, I did use the concept of making a wig cap for her hair from a tuturial I found here:
 http://owly.wordpress.com/2007/08/27/amigurumi-hair-tutorial/
I did make changes to that as well though. 
Her body is very egg shaped and her head is round, I haven't decided if I am going to add a mouth or just leave her as is.  Her arms and legs are jointed, my first attempt at this.  I made her clothes removable, so I can make her other outfits later on.  Even her panties can be changed.   I intentionally left her top short, so her belly button could peek out. Because when my daughter was little, she was always running around with her belly poking out.  She reminds me of my little girl when she was a toddler and wore her dance costumes everyday! We couldn't leave the house without a tutu and ballet shoes or taps.  She made quite the ruckus in the stores dancing down the aisles. 
I wish the pictures were a bit more clear so you could see the details of her nose and belly button.  I did a french knot for her belly, and love how it turned out!

Cute.  I love the hair, tutu and he raised nose and belly button.  I do think she needs a mouth though - lips in the same shade the pink in the hair is would be perfect.
