SweaterDoll is a land of making, a place for YOU time, with a put-the-world-down-and-enjoy-yourself message. It is the result of a lifelong addiction to needle and thread, simple tools for making the pictures in one’s head come alive.
Allison Dey Malacaria (CEO – Chief Embroidery Officer) designs embroidery patterns, toy and doll sewing patterns, and provides pre-printed embroidery fabrics for low-tech, artful, simple, portable, story-rich YOU time.
Where to begin? Embroidery School, on the website, is a free learning series with a downloadable sampler. Or just visit the shop and choose a design that makes you itch to stitch.
Who needs an endless parade of zippered and buttoned up clothes when you are already fashionably perfect?
Betsy and Billie are perfect fashion doll friends for that little girl in your life who isn't ready for a doll with removable clothing. Their skirts are already attached; part and parcel of the entire finished doll.
They love to play dollhouse, throw tea parties, and star-gaze during overnights.
But you can make this doll without the skirt and all the Kids-at-Heart clothing outfits will fit this Fashion Girl.
The downloadable PDF includes illustrated step-by-step instructions & templates for the Fashion Girl body, ruffled skirt, hair and face.
Kids-at-Heart dolls are 16" (42cm). The dolls shown in the above photos were made from cotton velour, cotton quilting fabrics, cotton knit, a little tulle, and stretch velvet (blue hair) and stuffed with wool fleece.
Skill level: Advanced Beginner to Intermediate
