I made this doll last time and my son named her Daisy Jane. I was planning to make it for myself but my son want it.
He had a boy doll and he wanted Daisy Jane to be his doll friend, so I gave it to him :)
Now, Daisy Jane is staying inside my son room together with his other dolls. How sweet....
I got the pattern from Burda Kid's magazine that my dear husband bought me from his short trip to Lisbon
|source from BurdaStyle|
White cotton fabric for the body, yellow knit fabric for the tube top, floral fabric for the skirt, stripes knit for the stockings, black felt for the hair, brown felt for the eyes, pink thread for the lip, red ribbon, elastic, polyester stuffing and threads for sewing.
BurdaStyle Rag Doll 09/2013#149 with adjustment on the tube top and skirt. I have to make the outfit bigger because they were too tight for the doll.
Here is my pattern pieces,
The sewing process was fun and much easier, you can follow the picture below
I hand sewn the side of the doll after I stuffed it with polyester stuffing. I used a chop stick to pull the stuffing on the place, because the hands and feet were together with the body
After all the process done, I sew the ribbon to her hair. And here is the whole look of the doll, front and back views
I sew the outfit. The top just like a tube top with two holes in both sides for the hands to insert. The skirt was a rectangle shape skirt finished with elastic inserted inside the waistband. And the stockings were in the shape of long/skinny rectangle, which one side was sewn and the other was open.
Well, it was an easy and fun project to make. Here are more pictures of Daisy Jane and I think she is a very cute doll :)
This doll is a part of my weekly update "DIY Friday" and I am also linking it to Caroline for Show Off Saturday
