Free Vintage Pattern Romper For Baby

I call this one Cover Page Romper just because it is the romper on the cover of the book I got this pattern from.  It is knit and not crochet this time, but cute with all those snaps.
I hope you like it!

Strawberry Shortcake Doll

As you know I have a lot of free patterns on my site and often I am asked if I know where someone can get a certain pattern or type of pattern.
 This time it was for a Strawberry Shortcake doll.  A quick search on google showed the only ones out there are 40-50 dollars! 
I don't know about you, but I'd never consider paying that much for a pattern.
I don't know if you know this, but just a change of yarn or adding different clothes to a doll pattern can give you the doll you are looking for.
I've found several free, I love free, doll patterns that I think could easily be turned into a Strawberry Shortcake doll by the addition of red hair.
I thought I'd share the links I found:

A special thank you to the crocheter that made their patterns free!

Free Vintage Pattern Set Called Teenage Miss

One of this week's free vintage patterns is actually a booklet with 9 projects. 
 They are all  crochet and the booklet is called Teenage Miss
I guess they were designs with a teen in mind, funny notion now with how old the look is!

They call it a Bandeau but it looks like a headband to me!
