Free Crochet Raven Doll & Her Cat Patch Pattern©

"Here's my New Free Raven Doll & Her Cat Patch Pattern©"
By Connie Hughes Designs©
 
I've been working on this for awhile...I started out with just the cat but
then I started on this little Pumpkin Doll so I've added her to my
Last Free Halloween Pattern at least for this year anyway! :-)

Here's Raven the little girl who was out walking her cat and they
just happened upon a very strange pumpkin patch...
well you can see for yourself what happened to them...
 
It's a Cat, it's a Pumpkin, you decide!
It wouldn't seem like Halloween without a black cat...and this one won't claw
you up or give you that evil eye...she's cute and huggable...or you can just
put her in a window just like a real cat...I couldn't decide if
she swallowed a pumpkin or the pumpkin swallowed her!
Raven is all ready for Halloween in her black hat, cape and dress!
She is ready for the big night!
 I hope you all have a wonderful and safe Halloween...
it's so much fun to be a kid!

 
 Here I just cut-out some black felt to show another option!
 

Don't over stuff the head!
