Free Princess Ariel Doll Pattern | Cult Amigurumi

Free Princess Ariel Doll Pattern | Cult Amigurumi

When I was a little girl, the Little Mermaid was one of my favorite films. Her curiosity with the human world sparked a different way of perceiving the world for me. As an outsider looking in, you can pick up details you would've otherwise missed. She taught me that a healthy amount of curiosity would benefit you well in the future.
