Let me apologize for the picture quality for this pattern. It's hard to photograph and write at the same time. Hopefully they're clear enough or that the description would help it make sense.

I'm going to sell patterns in the future but since I'm self-taught, I'm not sure if a lot of the methods I use are common knowledge. This is a way for me to see if it all makes sense and what I need to do to make the instructions more clear. I used an instruction set similar to most Japanese patterns because they're easier to follow. The written out version has always been harder for me since I tend to lose my place.

This pattern contains some useful methods you could apply in other areas such as:
- Using iron on fabrics
- Creating a felt wig cap

Feedback is deeply appreciated. If you like this pattern or use it, please fave and leave a link in the comments for your version. I love to see other people's version of my dolls. Don't hesitate to send me a note or leave a comment here if you need help with the pattern.


Edit: I was using Open Office to make the PDF and found that some rows went missing. All the necessary info is added back in along with some minor edits.

Hey! I'm wondering if you have any suggestions on getting the doll finished with all the stitches facing the same way? My head and arms came out fine, but since I had the legs turned right side out before I joined them, the whole rest of the piece going up is wrong side out.
