This is a pattern that I wrote and Thrifty Fun had published it. I truly admire those that write patterns on a regular basis because it is much harder than it looks. First you need to find an idea for something and as you create the crocheted items you need to write the pattern so others can understand it and write it down so it is very accurate!
My granddaughter was impressed that I could do something like this so it was worth the effort. I also made a crocheted crown for her but I notice it isn't on her in this pic. I have since made her a couple dresses, another skirt and another top, but no patterns for those.
