so cute!!  Trying to get my printer to work......looks like a real easy one..good for beginner doll makers Smiley


This is a stuffed doll?  

edit:  silly question ...but it's not made like with heavy felt or some such?  I just see on the arms there's not a break for stuffing so I had to ask...

yes.  she is based on equal parts fashion drawing and chibi stuffies.  She's meant to be skinny ish.  

The body stuffing goes in through the neck stump,, then hand stitch closed.  the head stuffing goes in through the top, then hand stitch closed.  arm is the same as for the poppet.  No seam allowance on anything - the black line is the sewing line.  

To attach the head you can slice a little slit in the back of the head and then stuff the neck stump in there, then sew it together.

edit - um good catch!  lol.  thats why I need pattern testers... off to go add some notches.  Also, she's made of alovasuede or some such, just like a poppet.

I'm going to have to go check out your Little Cupcake. I'm always up for new dolls to make me little ones. Can't wait to try it out.

Geez, I wander away for what felt like a few minutes and out pops a cupcake! I'm unpacking the sewing boxes in the new craft room/office, so good timing for a sewing test drive. *off to take a peek*

 So far...everything is going together really well....I'm going to add a little support of some sort in the neck area for the head since the head is a bit larger and a little heavy for the neck to hold up..especially after she has hair..but I'm thinking of doing felt for hair..not sure yet (that might be something you could add to your pattern..pattern for felt hair..like the apple dolls but added later? do you know what I mean?  anyhoo..the neck support would be the only thing I would recommend adding. (*some may like it that way though) Grin

i was thinking the same thing, like toothpicks with the sharp bits cut off.



Well, I haven't got the arms done yet, but here's what I have so far.  I think felt hair is a great idea, and I'm gonna dig up some earrings for her.  There is subtle shape in the legs - is it worth the trouble or should I make them just straight?  Is she too short waisted?

the head stuffing goes in through the top, then hand stitch closed. 

To attach the head you can slice a little slit in the back of the head and then stuff the neck stump in there, then sew it together.


Question, would it be easier to sew the head all around then slit the neck opening, turn, stuff, sew onto neck stump? Then you could make bald ones?? Cheesy

I did that on a head last night and it was awkward because you had to slit it so close to the chin that shaping the chin becomes a problem. however, it is possible.



I did the smaller one last night.  you can see the top of the head is rounder but the back of the head is a mess.  I ended up closing the hole i used for stuffing and just attaching it.  With glue.
