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.

    Although I wish there were more clothes to go along with this dolls set, the dolls themselves are adorable! They are a great pattern to try if you want to make dolls but are intimidated by too complicated patterns. There is room to shorten the dress to a top and add a simple skirt to wear also. And then you can lengthen the top to make into a nightgown, although flannel edges need treating so they don't ravel. I hope the shop owners add more clothing (jacket, pants, shoes, boots) as an add-on pattern pack soon. I think these little dolls would be super for a child to try their hand at and because they are straight-forward, would present great results and would build skills as well as being positive reinforcement because they are so cute and come out so well! As you can tell I am a huge fan of this shop! :0)
