FO-Orange Blossom Doll from Strawberry Shortcake
Hi,

I finally finished my orange blossom doll that I kept neglecting for the longest time. I love her!!! I'm starting a knitting club at my son's school this year and I had the doll on my display table during open house and that was hit. The kids were so excited!!! One little boy said, "she looks alive!" I thought that was really cute. Other kids came over thinking that I was selling them. Anyway, here it is. If you would like to see the rest of my FOs of the last two months, click here http://flickr.com/photos/19934031@N00/. I can't upload all the pictures here because it's way just too much and I would have to resize them all. Enjoy!

Oh my gosh... she is ADORABLE!

Someone... or all of us... should come up with a *good* Rainbow Brite pattern... I'd totally make her. Where did you get the pattern for her? Is it from a book?

Thanks!!

The pattern is from a Leisure arts leaflet. You can find it at Michaels for $9.95 or you can use their 40% off coupon and save some money. I modified the pattern a little big because the tiny body doesn't support the big head that well. I also used different yarn colors and eyes.
The also made the dolls on my avatar from this booklet.

Your Orange Blossom doll is great! I'm gonna have to look into getting those patterns, my daughter loves Strawberry Shortcake.
And Rainbow Brite? How cool would that be!

Your Orange Blossom is so adorable. And I also love the cupcake hat on your Flickr page. Great job with all your recent finishes.
