Really cute doll. Kids made this doll with their grandma who is a very experienced seamstress, she thought the legs and arms were difficult to turn. She didn't want to make another one :(
Kids this doll. I also have the Mae doll pattern and my girls were super excited to get a baby boy too!
I have made several of these for gifts. The instructions are easy to follow and the dolls turn out great.
Great pattern! Made several for my grandsons. Very easy to make. I love this pattern!
My two blasting away at everything with guns and with thier dolls! They love these things!!
Very good/accurate/clear directions.
doll is on small side I changed the pattern to make him larger also not enough area in pattern for seams. add extra material for seam. I also stitched dolls features before stuffing. I also stitched arms & legs on differently then stated to make sure that they stitched right.
I love the whimsical nature of these charming little dudes! I need more children to sew for.... wonderful pattern, easy to follow instructions! Bit of Whimsy patterns are perfect!
This guy is a hit when I give him with a matching quilt as a baby gift.
The pattern and instructions are very easy to understand.
nice simple pattern
they came out too small
I bought this pattern and used it to make dolls for both of my sons and also many gifts. It is super easy to follow. There wasn't one part of this pattern that was difficult to follow. I highly recommend it!
I have every pattern from her and love it! Definitely watch the videos on youtube it really helped me since i am a visual learner. dolls come out a bit small, but if you cut outside by 1/2" you'll have a much bigger doll.
