Frequently Asked Questions
Are your patterns suitable for beginners?
YES! As long as you have a basic understanding of sewing and how to use your machine (Youtube is great for learning the basics!) then you most definitely can make these patterns.
How long does a doll take to make?
This all depends on you. If you want to follow slowly and watch all the steps on the video and then pause to create your own it may take 3-4 hours. If you are a more experienced sewist and skip through to the parts you need help with then probably only about 2 hours
Do I need a sewing machine?
In most cases yes, a sewing machine is recommended. It is possible to hand sew most of them but you will require a bit of practise and a lot of patience.
Do the clothes patterns fit all the dolls?
Yes! (apart from the babies) the clothes will fit the animals and the dolls. The doll has longer legs than the animals so you may find that you prefer to make the Spring and Playtime collection a little longer for a doll but this is easy to adjust in the pattern.
What size will my doll be?
All patterns can be sized up and down by simply printing at a higher or lower percentage, however if you print without re-sizing the dolls will be approximately as follows:
Animals - 12 inches (not including the ears)
Dolls - 15 inches
Babies - 5 inches
Can I make dolls from the patterns to sell commercially?
No. Please only make the patterns for you own use. If you make a few to sell locally at a fair or charity sale then do contact me and I can make an exception but please don't make the dolls to sell online.
