I’ve tried making dolls on several occasions, but I can’t really recall what’s happened. I am pretty sure all of my previous attempts failed. This time, I had a purpose, the doll was going to be a Birthday gift, a very delayed one, but one nonetheless, for an amazing little girl I used to babysit. And since I only had one day to do it, I turned to Internet for help. I managed to find a pattern that I liked, though it was used for felt dolls, and since I only had enough felt to make a few items of clothing for the doll, I decided to use this pattern, and see how it would go!
As you may have noticed in the tutorial that I linked above, the dolls were hand-sewn, I made mine on a machine, once again, because the fabric I used was some mix of polyester and God-knows-what
And here is what I ended up with:
And then of course I made some clothes for her! I figured jeans, top and a jacket were a safe bet!
Have you ever tried making a doll? If so, how did it turn out? Also, if there are any patterns or tutorials that you especially like, please leave me links below!
I am also pet sitting for a fish for a few days! His name is Buckwheat, and he says hi!
Have a great weekend everyone!
