On a turquoise blue linen frame, we see the words "free pattern" angled across a photo of an Ideal Pepper doll (a vintage doll that was the little sister of Ideal Tammy, and whose United Kingdom counterpart was Patch, the little sister of Sindy dolls). The pepper doll wears a beach bonnet made of turquoise blue cotton and a little white floral sun dress (sundress) with white shoes. In the photo, the Pepper doll is standing in a room with a white floor and purple wall. The ChellyWood.com logo appears in the lower left corner of the image.
