Introduction: Vanellope Von Schweetz Doll
Hi, it's TheCraftingArtist with my first ever instructable! I thought about how much I loved the Disney princess characters when I was small so I decided to make a crochet doll of the video game princess Vanellope Von Schweetz. As a 12 year old this project was very fun and I thought other young crocheters might enjoy a project to do over the summer. I hope you like the pattern!
