This pattern consists of beading instructions for making a rosary scaled for a 16-18-inch doll. It is easy to do and can be completed in less than an hour.

I was very happy to find this pattern, particularly because I found it to be well-written, easy to follow, and approached with sensitivity. I was delighted when I held my first finished doll scale rosary in my hands, and continue to enjoy making more.
What a great pattern to have for your modern or historical 18" or 16" dolls. The pattern directions are easy to follow. My daughter and I had a fun afternoon making rosaries for our dolls. Thank you for such a fun pattern.
I'm a completely novice beader, and my ten-year-old daughter and I were both able to make perfectly beautiful mini rosaries following this fantastic tutorial. The pictures and written instructions are clear and easy to follow. It was a bit of an outlay upfront for supplies, so we've decided to make them for all of her friends who are celebrating their First Communions this spring! I would love to see more beading patterns from this designer!
This is a quick and easy project. The instructions are easy to follow even if you haven't done beading before. You will love how cute this is
