How she came to be: my friend asked me to make five different amigurumi Disney Princess dolls for her five daughters. Sleeping Beauty is the favorite princess of one of her girls because her favorite color is pink--or you can make her in blue as easy as "bippity boppity boo!"
Something that sets this pattern apart: I wanted to give the Disney princesses the Japanese kawaii, big-head look, with super-cute face details. I also designed the hair to be fast and easy to crochet because I detest the tedium of knotting individual strands of hair all over a doll's head!

I have been crocheting since I was 12, making amigurumi for 5 years, and designing my own sci-fi/fantasy amigurumi for over a year. I also have a background in technical writing and graphic design.
