Napling Butterflies are button jointed cloth dolls that measure about 7-8" inches tall. This detailed pattern is 50 pages long and includes color step-by-step photographs that cover all of the processes needed to make the doll, including rolling a waldorf style doll head. I use wool interlock to make my dolls, but you can substitute the wool fabric with cotton velour or use two layers of cotton interlock.
Also included are instructions on how to make a Napling dress for your butterfly to wear.
Use the coloring sheet included in the pattern to design your doll before you begin!
- 2 colors of wool interlock, cotton velour or use double layers of cotton interlock
-scraps of a 3rd color of fabric
-2 buttons for jointing
-artificial sinew or heavy crafting thread/string for button jointing
-eco wool for stuffing
-stockinette to cover rolled head
-craft string to tie head
-embroidery floss in a color for the antennas, accent the wings, eyes and mouth
-doll skin for face cover
I believe this pattern is detailed enough that even a novice sewer should be able to follow along, but I would safely say it is an intermediate level pattern.
