One little Ragdoll

wee wonderfuls kit, Chloe, Louise Doll

Dolly number 1 of 3 is done!  This one was a gift for a friend’s daughter.  She turned 3 on Saturday.

I used the Wee Wonderfuls Kit, Chloe & Louise pattern and it was very easy to sew together.  The most labor intensive part was stuffing the doll.  My suggestion is to stuff, stuff and when you are getting ready to sew the doll shut, throw in some more stuffing.  I used a bamboo/poly fill that I purchased at Jo-Ann’s, so I’m interested to see how the bamboo settles (if her neck gets floppy!).  The doll is still squishy and huggable, but in order to get a smooth look, it really takes a lot of stuffing.

I patterned the clothing myself (the wool felt shoes are from the Wee Wonderfuls pattern) and I changed the hairstyle.

I dug into my cloth diapering supplies and used plastic resin snaps for the clothing.

See the checkered lining?

Her outfit is reversible!

Stay tuned for two little brunettes that are in the works.
