Mommy… make me a frog!
**For French click here!
If you’ve been following me for a while, you might already know that my youngest daughter is a very serious frog fan… and she’s been pretty intense lately about me making her a frog. Not a doll with a frog costume (because I have a few of those already available), no a « for real » frog.
So that’s pretty much what kept me occupied today! Then I figured it’d be a cute little gift for all of you impatiently awaiting my next doll pattern! So enjoy this free pattern! Please add your projects to the Ravelry page to help getting my designs known!
