The idea of a new princess doll started haunting me since I was writing my last book Lovable Amigurumi Toys. No matter how I tried, I didn`t get it ready for the book. Now, a year later, I had no trouble finishing her. This is my fourth princess of this type and I must say I learned a lot with each and every one of them. You can follow my progress here – doll no 1, doll no 2, doll no 3.
I developed a new body type with bending legs, so when the doll sits it looks natural. The body is rather flat, that`s why I call it a ragdoll.
The hair is made in a new 3-layered hair technique which I am very proud of. The full guide for making the yarn hair is included in the pattern and got positive feedback from the pattern testers. If the hair is attached to the head in 3 different layers it gives a very natural look as if the hair is actually covering the head.
