This doll is super adorable and my siblings love them! I made three different dolls and let them pick the fabric for their dresses. Oh these are not just fun and easy to make, but fun to watch my siblings play with them, too. 10/5

Very cute dolls! I'd love to make these for every kid I know.

These dolls are adorable! What little girl wouldn't love one? I could see using leftover or coordinating fabric that could be used from an outfit already owned by the little girl who will be the recipient of this doll! Change up the look with buttons or safety eyes for the eyes, and a detachable bow for the hair 'topknot', or even add a little apron for more girlie fun! Super pattern, thanks for sharing!
