Widdle Girl's Fuzzy Set


Okay all you Mom’s and Grand mom’s, do you have any “Widdle Girlie” people in your family that you want to make happy for the Holiday’s? Well, I do, 3 beautiful Great Granddaughters and here’s what I came up with; “Girl’s Scarf, Ami-Doll and Draw String Purse”. You put the doll in the bottom of the purse, roll up the scarf and put that on top, pull the draw string and what a surprise when they open it. I had so much fun making this one and made them in pinky girl colors, but, you could do Holiday colors too. The scarf and purse are original and everyone knows a girl needs a doll, so I used a free little doll pattern and tweaked the pattern a little for the Amigurumi doll.
