This is my first ever doll. I have crocheted for over 30 years and have wanted to do something like this for years. I overcame my fear and made this for my 6 year old. She named her Gracie and the smile on her face was priceless. I have already been asked to make dolls for friends for their kids. I want to make a special one for the NICU nurse and her little girl who took care of my daughter for the first 29 days of her life. I made her a blanket, her daughter is now 8 months old and deserves a dolly of her own.
I have plans to make many more ami style stuffies in my future. I only had to overcome my fear.
