Favorite doll pattern

New postby pucktricks on Tue Nov 13, 2007 8:47 am

So, for Wendy's first birthday I was going to make her a soft doll. I have one pattern that looks ridiculously complicated, but makes a cool doll, but I'd kind of prefer something simple for her first doll. Any suggestions of your favorites? I'm looking through all the big companies right now, but it's always better to get recommendations.

I found this one: http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M4186.htm?tab=crafts&page=7 That looks pretty simple and cute. I seem to remember they once had lots of patterns to go with this doll, but I didn't see any this time.

I used this book:
http://www.amazon.com/Make-Your-Old-Fas ... 0486263614
It's about $5 for the book and is loaded with wardrobe patterns. You could sew on yarn for hair instead of painting it on as the author did. My daughter loves hers, and we even made her a halloween costume this year :) So much fun together!

My favorite is Raggedy Ann. I have the pattern in a few different sizes. I am thinking about making them for DGDDs but haven't decided Christmas or wait until their birthday in June.

Oh! I have that book somewhere from when we went to Williamsburg. I hadn't even thought of using yarn instead of painting the hair. I think the yarn hair just looks cuter than the paint. Now, I'll have to dig that book up.
