Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf flip doll pattern

Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf flip doll

Flip doll number two is here.  When, I made my first flip doll, so many people told me about the Little Red Riding Hood they had as a kid in the topsy turvy style (with the big skirt).  There are a bunch of vintage handmade ones on etsy - I'm amazed none of them look quite the same.  So I wanted to make one of these for tradition's sake.

My version has Red and the Wolf, and the Wolf has Grandma's hat so you can dress him up, making it perfect for storytelling.  Red's pocket is full of flowers she's been picking for her grandmother when she meets the sly old Wolf.  See more pictures on flickr.

I don't have much else to say about this little doll - I hope she speaks for herself.  I was a little eager last night and posted the instructions without the pattern - I guess midnight is too late to be blogging?  All is well now.  So here's the deal - 300 free downloads right here.  As always, please let me know what you think of the pattern and instructions.  Update:  Thanks everyone!  I just cut off the giveaway at 335 downloads. 

George and the Dragon are in the shop, and one more flip doll is coming soon - here's a hint:  an American folk tale!

Thank you!! I used to play with my mom's red riding hood/wolf flip doll when I was little, and I'm 40 now. I have a sushi/goldfish flip that my preschoolers at work love to play with. I can't wait till they see the Red/Wolf doll!
