This is Lil' Cupcake, a chibi fashion doll.  She is three pieces - head, arm and body.  I called her Cupcake because she is a pancake style doll but better, like a cupcake.   Smiley



She has such cute lil ears!



She has thumbs, and her knees,elbows and hips are stitched across so she is floppy.  You don't have to do that though - you could make her so she is stiff legged.  There is an optional stiff bent arm included in the pattern.  Her shoulders are jointed with an internal button joint, like a  poppet.  I think this makes her form more appealing, and easier to design clothing for.

Speaking of clothing - she might be the same size as YoSD sized ball joint dolls, the chunky kind, not the slim.  Unfortunately, I do not have a chunky YoSD... will have to download a pattern or two to see the size difference.



This is her w/o clothes.

The pattern is on my blog.

I am also working on a boy body and heads with different types of ears!

I used alova suede for the body.  You can find it at JoAnn's.  It's known as butter suede at Hancocks.  It's also known as microsuede too.  It's a sueded knit with very little stretch and usually pops up around the time people start sewing for halloween.
