I chose the last (most contemporary) one because I thought that Sami would enjoy it the most. Scouring the web for free crochet patterns, crochet patterns to buy, or even pictures of a contemporary SS doll that someone had crocheted resulted in nothing. I was surprised-- the amount of crocheted Lalaloopsy dolls I found on the internet was staggering-- no one has crocheted Strawberry and bragged about it on the internet yet? Oh well, I'll have to be the first to brag.
I used a pattern for an Alice in Wonderland doll for inspiration and a starting point (pattern found here). Then, unhappy with the arms on Alice, I referenced the Lalaloopsy doll pattern to create SS's arms. The hat and hair were freehanded. Voila!
To give an idea of the size of the finished product, here's a picture of Sonia and Strawberry Shortcake sharing a little snuggle.
So, there you have it.... The first (as far as I know) crocheted contemporary Strawberry Shortcake to be presented to the internet.
