Pattern Description:

Make your own sweet Ruthie bear with this PDF pattern from Retro Mama. She is wearing a cute dress with a collar and buttons with her favorite pair of Mary Janes. Your little will love her sleepy eyes and pink rosy cheeks!

You will receive an 10-page pattern in PDF format with clear, easy-to-follow instructions, color photographs, and full-size pattern pieces (no need to enlarge, just print and sew!). Finished doll is 18" tall. Her clothes and shoes are not removable.

Included with this pattern:

*glossary of terms and techniques
*hints and tips for sewing and stuffing
*clear instructions and photos for each step
*PDF lets you zoom in to see each step up close, and print and re-print the pattern pieces whenever you need them!

This pattern is recommended for intermediate stitchers and beyond. I do not recommend this pattern as a first project--if you are comfortable sewing tight curves and working with small seam allowances, you will do fine with this pattern.
