Sewing Crafts Rag Doll

My little granddaughter Bianca's birthday is coming up soon, she will be 4 years old. I thought it might be fun to make her a rag doll this year, that she could play with. Rag dolls are soft, so no danger of injury happening. She is old enough now where she would enjoy changing the clothing on the doll. I had forgotten I had purchased  this sweet pattern 10 years ago,made by Kezi's Oregon Ragbabies  I had always longed to have a  granddaughter to play dress up with


There a six panels which go into making the head.
The face is stuffed, and lightly penciled in.
The body is 4 panels, it has darts to create a bottom, which sits.
What I like about about the hands, is that it is sewed as a mitten, then the fingers are placed, which is a lot easier. Then the fingers are stuffed. The creator of this pattern has made dolls before.
The arms are attached to a button which gives the arms the ability to swivel.
Face is then painted in.
Hair attached individually.
Head completed.
Body sewed, arms attached.
Leggs attached.
Naked rag doll.

This pattern comes with, shoes, hat, bloomers, and top. A very nice pattern. Also see my Raggedy Anne Doll

  3. That's the prettiest rag doll I have ever seen! Was the face difficult to paint? Do you have to take a special course to learn how to paint doll faces?

  4. Thank you Lynne,
    I draw the faces out first. I have taken courses in decorative painting which has been a help to me. Micheal's the craft store has step by step books that can help you learn how to paint faces.
