Hello my dear crafters! How's your week going so far?
I have to admit that have been so impressed on your feedback on my finger puppets projects I shared with you all in the post months, that I decided to work on a new fun collection!
I used to love the Wizard of Oz when I was little. I remember I would listen to the story on my audiocassette over and over again with my brother - what a wonderful memory!!!
Today I'll be sharing the instructions to create the cute little Dorothy.
The pattern of the Lion is already available for free - click HERE to check the blog post!
***You can purchase a downloadable AD-FREE PDF of the patterns of the Wizard of Oz collection with many step-by-step pictures, charts, schematic and tips to guide you through the making process on Etsy HERE !
Here's the FREE pattern!
