NEW! Sundress pattern now included!!

16" Cloth Baby Doll
by Country Cottage Dolls

This easy pattern will show you how to sew, sculpt and assemble a cuddly doll that is certain to be loved! The sculpting is optional, either do it all, do a little, or do without! The pattern includes instructions for a simple sundress, and this this doll also wears “real” preemie sized baby clothes.

When I found out that I was expecting again, I wanted to find a baby doll for my daughter that she could play with while I cared for her new sibling. This baby doll pattern was born of my desire to find a baby doll that would be able to wear “real baby clothes” just like my new baby, and yet not be too big for a three-year-old to carry. The obvious solution was a preemie sized baby doll! At the outset, I was looking to buy a baby doll, but I soon found that 1. There are few things more repulsive than the delicate features of a newborn rendered in hard plastic, and 2. Most "newborn" dolls are very expensive!
The materials for this doll are easy to come by—no specialty stores or hard-to-find supplies needed! Supplies cost me less than $10 at my local fabric store, (I already had buttons, stuffing and embroidery floss on hand), and the finished doll was a delightfully cuddly, personal and lasting expression of my love for my daughter. That was how his pattern began, but since then I have made multiple dolls for friends and relations, and had so many requests for the pattern that I decided to put it on paper for others to enjoy.

~*Supply List*~
•Half a yard of velour, thread to match.
•Embroidery floss, needle and hoop OR fabric pens OR fabric pens and buttons for eyes.
•Yarn for hair. I used Fun Fur Yarn by Lion Brand Yarns.
•A very, very long needle. The longer it is, the happier you’ll be. I found a 5” “Doll sculpting” needle in the needle section of my local fabric store.
•Four large (at least 1”) shank buttons. Shank buttons are buttons which are sewn on through a metal loop instead of through holes. Buttons that are made for making fabric covered buttons are perfect for this project!!
•Vanishing fabric pen.

This is a great pattern! The instructions were clear and they worked! The only thing I was a little confused about was the hair. Sculpting the details was easy and fun. I used a machine embroidery download for the face. I made a boy doll and added a little anatomy. I'm giving it to my grandson for his first birthday. Even if he never plays with it, I thoroughly enjoyed making it, and maybe I'll have some granddaughters someday to use the pattern again for. Thanks for sharing. Beth Ford
