“My 7yo daughter made this (with help from me) for her kindergarten teacher's first baby. It was pretty simple to sew wtihout a lot of tricky curves and turns.”
These adorable dollies are very easy to make. Each doll is 17 1/2” tall by 18” across with arms outspread. Your favorite little girl or boy will love carrying these sweet dolls around. They are made from fleece (except for the cheeks, bangs and skirt) which make them soft and cuddly. They’re perfect for little hands to hold. Buttons are used for the eyes on the sample dolls – if you are making the dolls for children under the age of three, you may want to embroider eye circles or sew fabric circles, using the same technique as the cheeks and bangs.

Such an easy pattern to follow and a great way to use up scraps of fleece and fabric. The ones I've made so far were a big hit and I'm hoping my kids like the ones I plan on making them for Valentine's Day!
I MADE THESE FOR MY THREE GRANDDAUGHTERS FOR CHRISTMAS. THEY WERE A BIG HIT WITH THE KIDS AND THEIR MOTHERS. I HAD A LOT OF FUN MIXING ALL THE BRIGHT FABRICS.
I JUST LOVE THIS PATTERN IT IS EASY AND TURNS OUT VERY CUTE
