The Janey doll is fun and simple to make! Janey is stitched entirely by hand, using a whip stitch around the felt edges, French knots for the cheek dots, stem stitch for the mouth, and blanket stitch for the rick-rack on the dress. Only four pattern shapes are used to make the doll and two for the dress. The doll head-body-arms-legs are all together in one pattern shape – they are not attached separately which can be time consuming and difficult. The finished doll is 6 1/2” tall x 4 1/2” across. Janey is made from scraps of wool felt (acrylic felt can be used but wool or wool blend will be more durable). Enlarge or reduce diagrams/patterns to make Janey different sizes. Safety eyes are used for sample dolls – other options for the eyes are to make them using embroidery, paint or felt.
This seven page PDF e-pattern includes full size patterns to make Janey with two hairstyles and two dress styles; a materials list; detailed instructions written in English; and clear step-by-step photos.
I have sewed 2 of these precious little dolls. They turned out so cute and perfect for small hands of a little baby when a larger doll is to hard for them to manage. Directions are simple and easy to follow.
Felt scraps – flesh, light pink for cheeks, hair color, dress color (7” x 12” is the maximum size needed) Polyester fiberfill stuffing
Safety eyes – two 6mm black
Medium rick rack – one 7” piece for dress
1/4” Ribbon – 7” length for hair bow
Velcro hook & loop fasteners – two 1/4” x 3/4” pieces
Sewing thread/embroidery floss – white floss for cheek dots, bright pink floss for mouth, and colors that match felt (sewing thread or embroidery floss)
Optional fabric glue (Beacon Fabri-Tac permanent adhesive was used for samples)
