Pattern Description:

More than just a doll
Gather Ye Rosebuds is an intermediate level pattern for a 15" cloth doll with a working clock built into the base. Designed by Colleen Babcock, the detailed instructions guide you through every aspect of making this cloth doll including drawing and sculpting the face, creating the stump base out of thick felt, sewing the separate neck, printing the apron fabric using printer ready cotton sheets, creating the costume, inserting the clock, and crafting small details like the ribbon roses and tiny leather shoes.

More than just a pattern
And if that weren't enough, the pattern also includes exclusive access to a FREE mini online class delving into even greater detail on how to create the doll's face with step by step colour photos.

A kit is available for Gather Ye Rosebuds which includes the harder to find items needed to make this doll: 1/4" thick felt for the base, a clock movement and tiny gold-coloured clock hands. The kit also features a special exclusive online pattern bonus for Precious Time a magnet or pin doll holding a clock made from a reclaimed watch face.

The kit does not include the pattern and therefore if you don't own the pattern already you will need to purchase the pattern as well. Remember that if you purchase the pattern and kit in the same tranasaction the shipping fee is lower.

The pattern will be sent to you in PDF format.
