Delilah the Flower Girl

IMG_2767

Delilah loves flowers so much, that she just has to dress like one. This finished doll stands approximately 10.5 inches tall.

If you want a pattern that you can save on your computer and easily print, this pattern is available in my Ravelry shop for only $2.00. I love printing patterns and saving them in a binder to keep track of the ones I’ve done and the ones I still plan to do.
