A New Doll for Zoe

My 3 year old daughter LOVES stuffed animals and dolls. We have a huge chest full and apparently, that's just not enough in her opinion. I came across these adorable doll patterns on Etsy from a shop called Dolls and Daydreams. I bought 3 patterns to try out and the Small Doll was my first attempt.

I have tried other doll patterns before - well actually, I've tried MANY doll patterns before. I really, really love these patterns. The look of the dolls is really great but the sewing instructions and tips are even better. I love how there is no visible seam where the legs join the body and there are some great tips for working with tiny limbs. I think my first doll turned out fairly well although I think next time, I will leave more un-stuffed space at the top of the arms and legs. I also need to make the ruffled skirt for this doll.  Zoe was in somewhat of a hurry to cuddle the doll. :)

Meet "Rosa"
