Crocheted Baby Doll

Categories: Kid Friendly, Doll, Crochet

This crocheted baby doll is the perfect siz for cuddling. Safety eyes are used but could be embroidered for extra safety if the doll is being made for a baby or toddler. A little bobble nose completes the face, if desired a mouth could be embroidered below the nose but I chose not to add a mouth to mine. The pattern for a little hat is also included, with a chain loop pom pom on top.
