Karla and her hats

Last week I crochet these little dolls--------------

I love this pattern.  It is called Karla and her hats by http://amigurumibb.wordpress.com/

If you scroll down on the left you will find the list of free patterns.
I think this doll would be a great gift for a child going through cancer treatments.

Thank you Vanja

Question for doll makers

Does anyone recognize this little doll?

It is all handmade.  A friend from church gave it to me today.  The doll is about 30 to 35 years old.  The bag measures 8 inches by 10 inches.  The doll is about 8 inches.  The bag has an extra pocket.  This was a church doll and the little bible went in the extra pocket.  I love the bunny slippers!

I was thinking I could make some for the little girls in church if I had the pattern. It looks sort of familiar to me but I can't figure out where I have seen it.  Maybe in a magazine.  Any help would be appreciated.

My surprise find!!!

 This is Tommy.

Tommy was made from a pattern by Carolee Creations.
He is not for sale,  he stays with me.

But I wanted to share something I found out yesterday!!!

Tommy is about eighteen inches tall,
but he has very chubby feet! 
They are perfect for him,  but they are chubby.
Because of the shape of his feet,  
it is hard to find shoes for him. 
The pattern has directions to make him some shoes,
but I have never been a fan of shoes made from felt.

Yesterday is was sitting,  chatting with a teddy bear,
I looked over at them a couple of times and then,
I realized that their feet looked the same size!!

So I tried a pair of teddy bear shoes on Tommy
and they fit perfectly!

And he can stand in them.
He loves them.

The sneakers are from the Build A Bear Workshop.

And he also got a new ball cap.
I only had to sew up the teddy bear ear holes. 

Tommy has a sister named Nancy and now she wants new shoes!
I didn't have any here to fit her, 
so she will need to go on a shipping trip.
