Thank you for the compliments! Actually, she was very easy to do. Less than a week crocheting a little here and there. Crafting time seems in short supply since I've been given grandchildren to raise. I'll let you all in on Amanda's secret birth!~LOL

And she also shows you how to "Turkey stitch" the hair on. I have had several of her patterns  for a very long time but was intimidated by the intricacy.Boy, did I waste a lot of time!
The body and dress is from this booklet

I had to add length to the body arms and legs, didn't add enough to the legs though. I made the head first so I knew how much to add.
The eyelashes were my own idea, I think her eyes are a little too squared, but on the whole I am happy with her. Hope someone else plans to make one.

I just love those old pamphlets!!  I have about 7 that I have yet to try because of the difficulty that seems to show in the picture.  Thanks for the inspiration.

I'm glad she is so well received. Craftster approval is always a great boost to my creativity. I wish I could "share" the pattern, but I don't feel I've made enough changes to it to make it mine. The techniques used to crochet the head are completely Kathleen Early, especially her style of insetting the eyes. The pattern I have is very old, but she still sells them at the link I put in post #12. The Bonnie Belinda pattern is a pattern that Annie's Attic published last year. I tried making the doll with the faces shown, but she looked too creepy, maybe the hot glue used to attach the face tweaked it a little, I don't know. I'm hoping to work on two other patterns of Kathleen Early's this winter, Elvis and Mae West. Again, I'm sorry I can't share. The Early patterns are only $6.99, a great bargain considering a beanie pattern sells for $5.00
