Dorothy

So I wanted to make a Wizard of Oz set for yet another Norbert pattern. I found this wonderful pattern for Wicked Witch(which take some time to look at her other lovely patterns! I have loved her work and never had a problem with any of the patterns.), but there wasn’t one for the Scarecrow or Lion. So I based Dorothy off of her pattern to make the set… however, I did goof and forgot to get a picture of just her.  I’ll make up another and get it pictured.
