You are not permitted to sell dolls created from this pattern.

I started this little guy sometime in mid February, and he just hung around until today waiting for a second arm.

I tend to get projects very close to completion and then lose interest...but one of my goals for this summer is to finish or frog all of my ongoing projects. Luckily this little guy survived!

He's about 6 inches tall and 7 inches long. I overstuffed his head a bit, and his wings have some pieces of pipe cleaner in them (but I don't think it worked too well). Made up the pattern myself, and it was a pain in the butt!



From the front:


From the side:


From the back:


===================================
I plan to improve this pattern by re-making the arms/feet to make them less complicated and also change the body shape, but that may take awhile so here is what I have so far.

Now the pattern! I'm still kind of proud for actually writing it down, but be warned! I have a habit of making things a lot more complicated than they should be, so some of the pieces are a bit tricky (or just totally weird!)  Roll Eyes. You have been warned. Also, if something comes out a bit wonky or doesn't resemble the piece in the photos please tell me...I probably re-did that piece and forgot to change the pattern.

Made up the pattern myself, and it was a pain in the butt!

But it was well worth it, I'd say. Very cute!

I meant triple crochet for TC and slip stitch for sl sc. I don't the correct terms and abbreviations so I just wrote something down. Sorry for the confusion.
