FOs: Princess and Unicorn
I made a princess and unicorn doll for my daughter's birthday from the book Dream Toys. My daughter was utterly delighted with both! I can't recommend this book enough. It has such fun, whimsical dolls and toys in it, my kids have gone through the book and want me to make almost everything in it!
The only real modifications I made to the patterns was to knit as much as I could in the round-as everything was originally supposed to be knit flat (the seaming-oh the seaming! shudder).
I'm very pleased with how they both turned out!
