I was contacted by the editor of Crochet Now, a crochet magazine by Practical Publishing International Ltd., to create a doll similar to my cupcake doll for an issue of their magazine. I set to designing straight away to come with something absolutely amazing for this honor. In return, I designed this beauty, the Lemon Tart Doll, which I thought would be a perfect addition to my Sweet Treat line of dolls. This topsy-turvy doll is just full of sugary goodness!
This pattern can only be found in Issue 10 of the Crochet Now magazine. You can find a digital copy of the magazine on PocketMags.com or you can order the printed magazine from MoreMags.com. Read more about this issue in Crochet Now’s blog post.
