I've been sewing since I was very young, probably about 7 years old. It started with Barbie clothes and stuffed toys, and later progressed to people clothes. I have a diploma in Fashion Design and have been working in the fashion industry for the past 25 years. I have experience in design, patternmaking, quality assurance, communication with manufacturers, and merchandising.
Sewing has always remained my "thing".
My favorite items to make are stuffed toys; it will always amaze me to see a piece of fabric become something you can hold and admire and sometimes adore.
When creating a doll, the look can change immensely just by the fabric chosen, making each doll unique. This is a wonderful process for the designer in me.
For the kid in me nothing beats a furry, squishy, huggable, lovable stuffed animal.
Jenny is a sweet, whimsical, retro inspired, 15" (38cm) cloth doll. She is best made using quilt-quality 100% cotton fabric and was specially created to bring out the designer in you. Chose your colors, fabric designs, and hair color! Mix it up! Use up some of that fabric stash! Or make a doll to look like that special niece, daughter, grand-daughter, aunt or cousin!
Her hair is made with yarn. Her dress is removable, her hat and tights are not.
The colorful 18-page pattern and tutorial includes very detailed, well illustrated, step-by-step instructions with helpful tips throughout.
