Since I haven't been able to find a doll pattern I like, I started looking for online patterns for diapers to put on our existing doll (a gift from her cousins' other grandmother). I found this simple looking pattern at Skip to My Lou. I need simple, because I'm not even sure I can run the sewing machine properly.
While looking for doll diapers, I thought I'd run a search for free baby doll patterns, too. Here's what I've found:
- Lifesize recycled blue jean dolls at diynetwork
- Sock dolls (I've been reading books about these from the library too, but haven't attempted one yet)
- this page of free cloth doll patterns
- no-sew diaper pattern that fits Baby Alive (which I desperately wanted as a child and will NOT be getting for my daughter!)
- and this simple rag doll
Our city just got our first JoAnn's store last week, and I've been looking through the Simplicity pattern books looking for a prairie doll pattern that my mama and grandma used when I was little. I've only been able to find one doll pattern (a baby doll) in the Simplicity book, but my JoAnn's doesn't have that pattern in stock yet.
Have you found a simple baby doll pattern that you like to use? I'm still considering ordering the Waldorf kit from Weir Dolls & Crafts.
