DOBBY THE HOUSE ELF DOLL

Dobby was a request of a co-worker.  I searched for several days trying to find a free pattern for Dobby.  Unfortunately, I came up empty.  So, I decided to design one of my own.  It was a little difficult because he did not have the same body shape as any of the dolls that I had made before.  It slowly came together.  Here is the pattern that I came up with.
