Anabela Amigurumi Doll

My grandniece's birthday was March 15th. I am very behind in my gift making, but got this doll finished after I recovered from a week in bed from food poisoning. Put her in the mail on Tuesday, and she should be delivered to her new mommy today. Waited until today to post this, as I didn't want to spoil the surprise. I call this my "Anabela Doll" named after my precious grandniece. The pattern is a basic Amigurumi Doll pattern by Beth Webber. The dress I made freehand, no pattern. The flower covers and inperfection in my crochet skills, and the wig was also free hand. Shoes were made because my mother thought she needed them. I used the doll pattern foot, and just stopped when it looked like a shoe. Strap is hand woven with yarn and a needle. My sis-in-law gave me a box of safety eyes, thinking I would find a use for them. Thanks to her I can make as many animals/dolls for a while. These are hard to find eyes, and noses.
