I am thinking that we should do a small project to start with. LionBrand.com has some great patterns that are absolutely free. They also have a ton of tutorial videos. All you need to do is sign up for a login. They do send some newsletters and offers, but they are far from obtrusive. Here are the ones I am thinking of.
Martha Stewart doll – This would be easy to customize and make your own.
Angel Doll – Changing colors, this could be an angel or a fairy. Leave the wings off and it is a little girl.
Little Frog – Who can resist a cute little round frog?
Bunny Rabbit – Easter is coming. I have a nine-year-old girl who would absolutely love a new bunny for her basket.
Use the poll I am going to put up or respond with your preference in a comment. Thursday, I will select the most popular pattern, and make it official. Then you will have a couple of days to gather supplies if you need to.
As we go along, feel free to ask questions. Also take some pictures because, I would love to show your work in a gallery or through a link to your blog.
