This is my first original design. My mom gave me the yarn for my 14th birthday, and I started it the day after that! It's taken me over a year to complete it, due to not having enough yarn, and trying to find substitutions! The yarn that I used is unfortuantly no longer made, but please feel free to find the yarn that will make you smile! The yarns that I've listed I found on the internet that I've never actually seen, but I think will make great substitutions.
