Dolly Spring Poncho For American Girl Dolls Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

My grand daughter's birthday is coming and 
I am having a blast designing her some doll clothes
 for her American Girl Dolls.
She asked for some "Dolly and Me" Things
 so this is the first one I came up with.

The Dolly and Me Spring Ponchos
She loves Purple, and I was thinking Spring.
I really love it.
I think the Bright flowers really make the 
Ponchos say,"Spring is Here!"
The Doll is wearing a "Simple Doll Dress" 
under the poncho.
You can find that Crochet Pattern here:
Today's Blog will only have the Dolly Spring Poncho, 
and the Child's Poncho will be ready in a few days. 
I will add that link to this blog when it is ready.
