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.
Lovely patterns. I can't wait to make this for my fancy bear.
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
