Pippa the Pink Puppy (Cuddly Companion Series)

The Pippa the Pink Puppy Pattern provides written instructions with photo references for crocheting this sweet, little pup with sleeping eyes.  Pippa is perfect as a gift for a newborn baby or young child.  She makes a lovely nursery décor, baby shower gift, or birthday gift!  This project is suitable for advanced-beginner or intermediate crocheters who are familiar with the basic amigurumi stitches and principles of doll making.

Pippa is part of the Cuddly Companion Series, a new line of dolls that I'm designing as perfect buddies for your baby or young child to love and cherish!
