Pretty Cloth Doll PDF pattern


Miss Lucy Lou Cloth Doll PDF pattern
Do you have a special little girl to share this pretty cloth doll pdf pattern with?

Let me introduce you. Her name is Miss Lucy Lou, the name my very own special little girl picked out for her. She is dressed in her best floral dress and little cropped felt jacket ready to go to town.

Lucy Lou is a quick and easy cloth doll to make. Once you know a few tricks for making cloth dolls, the sky is the limit. The most important technique is the transferring of and sewing of the limbs. If you trace the limbs onto your fabric and then sew on the drawn line, the process is super easy. Another tip is to reduce your stitch length and choose a thread colour to match your fabric.This lightening of the stitches makes the seams stronger so that they withstand firm stuffing.

Button Dolly



Many years ago I stumbled across a button dolly and was immediately taken in. Perhaps it was the excitement of having a worthy project for some of the many buttons in my button collection, or perhaps it was the simplicity of the doll that appealed to me. Whatever the reason, I decided to have a go at making my very own version for you to enjoy.

Since colonial days women have been making dolls from leftover buttons for their children to play with. These delightful button dolls are still popular today, although are used as decorative items rather than toys.

The biggest decision was sorting through some of my button draws trying to decide which buttons to use.


The process of making the dolly is quite simple once you get going.


And I couldn't resist in making her a primitive style dress and garden hat.


The good news is that I have just uploaded my button dolly pattern onto the Stitching Cow website. So click here now and download a copy of the Button Dollly pattern.

You could be making your very own button dolly today! 

Have fun!
