Day 3 – Crochet Business Blogging Challenge – Crochet Bucket List – Amigurumi BB Doll

Here’s the link to today’s blog post:  Crochet Bucket List – Amigurumi BB Doll

In order to provide some value in each post – I decided to start working through some of my Crochet Bucket List projects –

Today’s post is about the “Dolly” I crocheted using AmigurumiBB’s pattern.

It is a fabulous pattern and my daughter loves her “Dolly”.
