Basic Skills Necessary:

  • : Competence with a sewing machine and basic sewing skills are required to make the dolly. There are no zips, or fastenings. Three variations are offered within the pattern.

Pattern Description:

The Denim Dolly is a delightful item for young girls, or their older sisters. Aunts and mums will also fall in love with her! Hang her up in your sewing room, or sit her on a shelf! Every time you look at her she will make you smile.
Her whacky hair is such fun, and the embellishments on her dress really pretty. She is made from recycled jeans.
After you have made one, you will be keen to experiment, and make your own personal embellishments
When you download this pattern you will find 7 pages of illustrated clear instruction, and one page with full sized head and dress templates.
