I need to make one with sand....also...how do you make a pattern on the computer and post?  Is there a special program to use?  I am not very puter literate but I would like to post a pattern of the hair...

I would also be curious about pattern-making...

...and yes, interchangeable parts would rock!

I also would like to know if there's a special program on the computer to draw a pattern & I love the inchangeable parts Idea. That's a cute dress you made "ghille"!!
Also the longer torso & bigger feet look good too!! The hand looks good with the thumb. I think why it looks maybe like a crab is the fabric. I also like the sand Idea!! Will have to try this Doll pattern soon!!

Wow, I went away to learn how to build houses out of mud and came back to an awesome new doll pattern! Will give it a go, just have to unpack and tidy up first. Ugh.

I don't use a program to make pattterns, but I am going to start.  I usually do it the old fashioned way.  If it needs to be mirrored, I draw the half and then flip and trace.

But I have recently acquired some skill with adobe illustrator, and I think once I get the pattern finalized, I am going to scan what I have and use it as a template to draw the pattern with the pen tool.

Sorry this pattern is taking so long, but I should have some time next week.  I was hired (internship) to make patterns for a shop that was contracted to make uniform vests for the local Catholic academy and that pattern is due tomorrow afternoon.

Thank you Ghilie for not only sharing your patterns with us, but for reminding us to keep on creating!  I love the simplicity and sweetness of your Cupcake doll.  I hope to make some for my nieces soon!

I updated the pattern for Cupcake.  It's drawn in Illustrator.  Let me know if it works up ok.

thanks, but so far its a huge pain - everything that can go wrong will go wrong!  i just digitized the patterns today with our cutting company and they are using an outdated version of the CAD program and they dont have the grading module so we have to find someone to grade it, and I can't even get the program to walk the seams and ARGH.  So much harder than any class and yet learning so much more than I ever did at school.
