This is a fun and easy project. The Candy Keeper is a cloth container doll pattern by ODACA artist, Deanna Hogan of Blue Heron Dolls. The doll is made of woven fabrics. Hats are made of felt. Instructions include several variations. The bowl is made from a plastic gallon milk jug, covered and lined in fabric – a great way to recycle. Use contrasting or complementary fabrics. The eyes are simple buttons, the mouths embroidered. There are three head styles included in the pattern: a head with a slightly exaggerated chin (appropriate for the witch or scarecrow), the basic round head (good for Annie or Scarecrow), and a head with the profile nose (for the Santa and Girl) – with some light needle sculpting. There are two hand types. One template has fingers – with the finger divisions to be stitched by hand or machine. The other template is for a basic mitt hand. Use almost any fiber for hair: raffia, yarn, wool locks, mohair, jersey weaving loops, silk leaves or flowers, knitted eyelash yarn, etc. The finished doll may be further embellished with lace, ribbons, buttons, or seasonal decorations.
A color page of four additional variations of the doll is included: You will receive instructions to make the Girl, Annie, Scarecrow, Witch and Santa dolls. Included are three head and two hand styles.
This pattern was designed for the dollmaker with beginning to intermediate skills.
