  1. Thank you so much for the pattern. I am at the point where I add the head. I'm tired so I will finish tomorrow. This is a well written, easy to follow pattern. I really like how you designed the feet--very ingenious. I am planning on making a doll in each color of the rainbow. Not sure why but it just popped in my head when I saw your doll. Thank you, Susan
