I did this pattern and got wonderul results. I changed it by putting a doily instead of lace and added a top to the pointed piece. Thank you for the good pattern.
I love this little pattern. I have the frame part of it made, but need to finish the decorative layer. It fits my doll's hand perfectly, and the instructions are so easy to follow. Thanks. Cris
Lovely patterns. I can't wait to make this for my fancy bear.
