Baby Dory

June 25, 2016

UPDATE: Thanks to the contribution of Jeannette Kemp,

this pattern is now available in Dutch! 

With the excitement of Finding Dory, I couldn't help but want a little Dory for myself. Better than buying a Royal Blue Tang, let them stay in the ocean where they can thrive. Here's the pattern to make yourself a little blue friend that is soft and can travel out of water.

Please do not sell this pattern or any alterations of this pattern

you may have made.

Please do not sell any finished product created from this pattern.

mainly to have a smoother color transition.
