My notes for the Pretty Princess Lovey pattern - Round 2

I finally took a bit of time to work up some more Princesses for my collection.  Lately I've heard that Disney is going ballistic and shutting down Etsy and Amazon shops who are making and selling anything that resembles one of their licensed designs, specifically Frozen items.  I'll keep my feelings on this to myself so as not to start a fight...(grrrrr...they are a multi-billion dollar corporation and they are concerning themselves with the goings-on of a few people selling fan art?!  Whatevs.)  However, I do plan to continue making my own versions of the "D" princesses using the Pretty Princess Lovey pattern from Bowtykes.  And since you all asked so nicely, I'll post my notes on making each princess I work up so you can make your own versions, too.  Take that, D!

Base Pattern for all these dolls can be found  here .

Thank you so much, Brianna Olsen...I'm sure you don't know who I am but I will be forever grateful to you for this pattern!  Love it so much!!
