Item details

The Swimmer is a pin doll (or ornie) that was designed to be made from woven (not knit) fabric, like skin-tone dyed muslin. Two sizes are included in this pattern; the plumper of the two will be a little easier to turn right side out. The Swimmer’s arms and legs are invisibly jointed, and her swimming suit, fins and cap are painted in acrylics. Optional goggles are made from polymer clay.

This is the first pin doll I designed and published. As a rule, pin dolls can be a little more difficult to make than bigger dolls, due to their small size. If you are new to making pin dolls, start with the plumper (zaftig) version.

This listing is for the e-pattern only, not the finished product.

Online help is available, should you have any questions.

Adobe Reader is required to open this document. As this is a pattern download, there is NO COST FOR SHIPPING.

At this time, the e-pattern is designed to be printed on 8-1/2 X 11 inch paper, though I believe there should be no problem printing onto international A4 paper.

As with all copyrighted materials, forwarding this e-pattern to anyone (for profit or not) is prohibited. You may sell dolls made from this pattern if credit is given the designer. You may save a copy of the file to your computer, CD, flashdrive, etc., for your personal use.

As this is an e-pattern, there are NO RETURNS OR REFUNDS

Thank you,
