I just finished this Ruby Doll for my soon-to-be born daughter today (free pattern from One Red Robin: http://oneredrobin.com/ruby-doll-patterns-and-instructions/). The doll is mainly machine sewn, with some portions (of the face) handstitched.

I'd been looking around for toy patterns that I could use and finally found this one that I really liked - the size of the finished doll is about 11 inches tall.  I don't have that much imagination so I pretty much copied the colour combination, etc.

Initally was a little worried about getting the face right (this is like my 2nd soft toy) but thankfully the eyes didn't come out lopsided!

This is going to be displayed in the baby nursery Smiley

Oh that's so cute. I really love it.

Good luck with the birth of your daughter - mine's now 3 months and those first few months are such a special time. x

I think that by "those first few months are a special time", Kittyboo was trying to say, "those first few months are utterly exhausting." THAT being said, I am in love with this doll! Thanks for the link to the pattern. I'm always looking for new things to try, and with Christmas coming up and two girls of my own, this should be perfect!

I love it, for some reason it reminds me of fiddler on the roof! Good luck with your baby!
