Meet Pocahontas, the native American princess. This amigurumi is based on Irene Strange’s fabulous Patch Doll pattern [http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/patch-doll-amigurumi-pattern].
While the original pattern is of a 12 inch Halloween themed doll, I altered the pattern to turn this patch doll into a Pocahontas amigurumi that’s a little over 14 inch tall. I elongated her legs, shaped her shoulders and head differently, changed the dress completely to give it a Disneyesque look, gave her a tattoo on her right arm, and fitted her with a pair of boots. To complete the Pocahontas look, I gave her a completely new hairdo using a wig making technique I learnt from AmigurumiBB [http://amigurumibb.wordpress.com/2013/08/23/fairy-dolls/].
