Doll by Barbara Johnson
from... Greensboro, NC

Prissy Missy

She was crafted using Kezi's "Dear Ones" pattern. She stands 21" tall. She has a softly sculpted face. I used the basic dress pattern for size but added my own touches to make her dress more elaborate to reflect the Easter Season.

Her hands are also able to be bent as I did use wires internally so I could pose her the way I wanted. Her left hand is grasping a small stuffed is not stitched in place.She has a little attitude and I wanted her to hold this stuffed toy as a normal 11-12 month old child might.

I used mohair for her hair and crocheted a scalp covering of the same material so that I could add each strand individually to give her the slightly unkempt look of a small child. This I topped off with a little straw hat and shoes which were purchased. I will make this pattern again but I will add support in the legs and trunk the next time so that the doll might stand on its own without a

This was such a fun project to do.

Charisma and Zoe

Being in Australia I was not sure weather to enter or not. But after I made up Judi's topsy turvy doll pattern, I was just so pleased with them I just had to show them off if nothing else. the pattern was beautiful to work with and the dolls look so real . I used craft velure for their skin, painted their faces with gel pens , and used knitting yarn for hair. Their clothes are made of cotton fabric. My Grand Daughter Lucy, took them to school for show and tell , and they did come home in one peice. All the girls in grade 1 wanted one.

I found the perfect vintage look fabric for her jumper and then knit a matching sweater. Her lamb was purchased. She is my own design.

Doll by Estelle Katz
from... Canada


This doll is based on a Pattern From the Past called Marigold. She is 11 inches tall. Her name, Merry gave me some trouble. She for some reason reminds me of a raspberry, which is no name for a doll. Neither is berry, so she became Merry and I think she is a merry little girl.

The Twins - Josie and Jase

These twin baby dolls are just learning to walk outside and they don't like the grass on their toes. I made them to honor my husband and a good friend who are both undergoing treatment for cancer. They are learning to trust and move forward just like the baby dolls.

The dolls were made from Kezi's "Dear Ones" pattern with just a couple of slight modifications. They all have diapers made from diaper flannel. Josie is wearing a undershirt and Jase has on a onesie and so does their little Judi baby doll. I made all from a white t-shirt. I made Josie's jumper and Jase's overalls and embroidered their names. Josie's jumper was too short so she got a matching pair of shorts. Their baby doll is wearing a matching circle dress over her onesie. When I was 7 or 8 I had a little tiny doll and the first doll clothes I made were little circle dresses with 3 slits in the middle for neck and sleeves so I made one for this little doll.

Hansi is a seven inch wool felt blend baby of my own design. He has simple button joints for poseability and a face made by forming felt over paperclay. The sculpt for the paperclay mask is my own. His hair has been fashioned from wool roving. His little lamb was crocheted by me and I knit his three piece pramsuit. I created him to console myself when I coveted a similar doll that I couldn't afford and found that I really love the impressionistic look of the felt.

Jimmy and Cricket

The Twins, Jimmy and Cricket were born in January 2010 in Ocala, Florida. They are approximately 16" in length and were one month premature. Fabric used was a craft velour, felt for eyes, gel pens for other facial features. Hair is from yarn and earrings are real. Clothing for both are preemies size outfits; including hat and head band.

After making Cricket felt she needed a sibling and along came her brother Jimmy. She is, of course, the eldest of the two Twins. Both dolls were fun to make and I couldn't just stop after doing one! Consider myself to be an Intermediate doll maker.

The Twins, Jimmy and Cricket are from the Judi Ward pattern called Baby Bows.

Doll by Ricki Beedell
from... Alberta, Canada


The doll is made from a pattern I have owned for over 25 years. “Tiny Tots” by Connie Ellsworth. I have resized it and made a few small changes. Faces are what I enjoy! My focus is with her face. She is painted with acrylic paint and highlighted with chalk. I needle sculpted around the eyes, mouth, and nose. Using needle felting, I made a pom-pom to give her nose dimension. I enjoyed making several outfits. The photos seem to bring her alive. While looking for ideas I found Sue Sizemore’s work “inspirational”. I so loved making “Annalee”

Baby Jenna

I chose to use Judi Wards 6-9 month baby pattern. I had just gotten it and wanted to try it out. I had a little trouble finding the right cloth and ended up using a light weight knit that wasn't very good. It took me longer to make the doll so I bought her an outfit to wear. Her name is Baby Jenna since she reminded me of my daughter (difficult to work with ).

Tiffany Baby Doll

I found this pattern at a flea market. I though it was great for this challange.Colud not find out the designer name, all it said was it was Tiffany Baby Doll and the pattern from the past by cloth doll

The pattern called for the face to be embroided, but I wanted it to be different, being I was not making it for a child. So I put eyes on it with eye leads and a button nose and a felt mouth. I also added ears. I changed the hair. I used a craft bond spray and sprayed it on putting a very light fine blonde hair.  Hair I had from when I did a new reborn baby. It is suppose to be like a new born hair. I put no clothes on her because I though she was pretty the way she was.

Her name is FANNY, she is a french baby doll, and loves looking all the world around her ! She loves have her little Teddy Bear in her arms, and playing with it.

I would like to introduce you to Joey. My daughter recently had a baby boy. He is now 8 weeks old. What better way to commemorate than making my own Joey!

I dug deep to find this pattern. It was purchased in 1990 from Carolee Creations. It was called "Pretty Baby" and is 19" long. The pattern was Copyrighted in 1987 by Carolee Creations.

He is made from a peachy/pink velour that I've had around for the past 15 years. I used 'fake fur' for his hair. His joints are moveable. The onesie he is wearing was purchased at K-Mart. His socks were as well and as you can see he is trying his best to pull one off. I added eyelids to my version of the pattern trying to imitate the puffy eyes of the newborn. Joey has a lopsided grin with a dimple. Too adorable.
