Wonderful doll pattern, easy instructions and great results. This is my first doll pattern and I couldn't be more satisfied. I plan to make several of these dolls, I have lots of ideas for making them exclusive!

I have made this doll four times and each time I love it so much I have a hard time giving it away! The pattern is great. I did add a little width to the arms and legs so I could have bigger seam allowances. I found that I would have holes in my seams sometimes when I used the given allowances for these small, tight body parts. I ordered quality felt online for the hair. I also lined the front the body (all parts) with fusible fleece to make it less see-through because I used muslin for the body and it seemed too thin. Adding the fleece made the doll nice and firm with no lumps from the stuffing.

My favorite "go-to" doll pattern. I made one for my daughters toy themed basket for the fall festival at school and it made the most money in the silent auction because everyone wanted the doll. I got requests for dolls forever after that.

These are one of favorite dolls to make! The instructions are clear and easy to follow. The dolls are just so stinkin' cute! My daughters love the fact that they have dolls to match their hair and eye color.

This is a very nice pattern. Only thing I don't like is that the head pattern piece is not symmetrical.

Very cute and easy to make. I have made 2 for my nieces and a boy one for my nephew (he got it 6 months ago for his 1st bday and to this day, it's still his favorite). My girls have birthdays coming, so they are next :)

This pattern is SUPER easy to follow and produces a doll exactly like the photo. I made my girls, ages 15 and 23 ( years NOT months! ;) ) one for Christmas. I used a shirt that belonged to my DAD ( their pawpaw) before he passed away 5 years ago; to make her skirt . Instant family heirloom! I made the hair and eye color to match the girl she was sewn for. Sooooo Cute! Highly recommend this pattern!

I just finished my first Mae doll. She's a gift for my daughter who just turned 3 and is giving up her binkys to her baby cousin. Mae will be her gift from her cousin in exchange for the binkys. She's such a sweet doll and very easy to make! I can see our Mae having lots of siblings and friends in the near future! Thanks for such a great pattern! Blessings- Dana

I don't really make dolls. So I was slightly hesitant to purchase this pattern, but it was just so darn cute I couldn't resist. I'm so glad I gave in! The instruction were clear, even a beginning can make Mae. The finished product is absolutely adorable. In fact, I made a sample doll last night and my little girl saw her this morning and decided that it was hers. She loves it. This is a great pattern.

This pattern was great! I've never made a doll in my life and this was very easy to make. Clear instructions and great photo steps...I confess, I didn't really read the instructions closely...the pictures were fairly self explanatory. I haven't embroidered in probably 25 my stitching leaves A LOT to be desired! This is a Christmas present for a friends little girl. I hope she likes it.

Very easy to make and such cute results. I did find that if I embroidered the faces on before sewing the front and back together that it made it a whole lot easier. My daughter loved her doll and I made one for my niece as well. Instructions easy to understand as well.
