Have fun with prints and colors here as well!

What little girl would not fall in love with one of these precious little dolls?

Doll Blanket Pattern Sewing
I love the colors she used on their hair and she used felt balls is pigtails for the little dolls. What little girl would not go crazy over this doll?

Nasıl yapıldığını adım adım blogunda anlatmış. Thanks for the pattern and your guidelines.Bu harika bebeklerin sahibi whileshenap blogunun sahibi. That’s the spot to leave open for turning and stuffing. On the pattern they are 1/4″, but in the photos they appear to be 1/8.

I stitched a set each of arms and legs, and they are a bit scrawny. The tiny one for a newborn baby and a bit taller for her big sister!

Used fabric from my recently ripped blanket and finished it in one morning and she is super happy, will be making one for my 16mo and my 2yo niece.
This doll blanket pattern is easy to sew for beginners and is sized for 18 inch dolls and toys. Read the article at ...

Then, after the doll is turned right side out, stuff the arms through the small openings and close them using ladder stitch. Thanks for th insight and for sharing your pattern. Another option would be to leave the entire arm unstuffed, but leave a small opening in the seam. How much stuffing do you put in each limb?

I am having a hard time fitting in all the limbs inside the doll to sew the bottom seam. First you have the legs out and sew from one corner to the other leaving the bottom open. Then you put the legs in and sew the bottom closed – where is the opening in the dress to do the turning?

It’s a bit softer than wool-blend felt, but is still lovely to work with. Another alternative would be bamboo felt. Be sure to use a lot of pins while sewing so that the fleece stays in place. Thank you for sharing your pattern and tutorial with us. Would using an anti-pill fleece for the hair work?

I don’t think a child would be able to sew this. Thank you again for sharing this cute pattern.

I have a darling little grandson and would to make one for him.

I plan on making and giving them to little girls who have none.

I make nothing off of them, but there is money involved that helps our teenagers at church go to a week of summer camp. Vous serez t il possible de me l’envoyer, ce serait vraiment gentille de votre part.

I am not sure what you mean about being sure the printer is on actual size?

Yes, the pattern template for the front and back of the head is the same.

I did enlarge the pattern a bit to make a bigger doll.

I am going to try to squeeze in making a few of these!

The kids at the hospital will love these.

I love an opportunity to use up some of my scraps!

I reckon my granddaughter might like to make one too.

I like to draft my own doll patterns but do enjoy reading how other doll makers make dolls.

I attached wool balls for hair and random buttons on the dress. If you’d like, dip your finger in lipstick, blot on a tissue, then rub in circles on the face to make blushed cheeks. For closed eyes use back stitch for the eyes and mouth. For open eyes use satin stitch and back stitch the nose and mouth. Pull on the floss to pop the knot inside the doll. Make two straight stitches for eyelashes. Insert the needle through the seam between the front and back of the head, coming up at one eyelash. To embroider the face, thread an embroidery needle with 3 strands from a length of 6-ply floss. Stuff the doll firmly, beginning with the head.

Doll Blanket Pattern Sewing

Clip the seam allowance at the curves, especially at the neck. Turn the doll right side out through the opening in the dress. Now push the arms up into the head to keep them out of the way. Place the doll front on the doll back and pin around the sides and top. Place the arms on the front of the doll, as marked. Place the legs on the front of the doll as marked. Stuff the limbs, stuffing firmly at the tip and then only very lightly, leaving the last 3/4 inch unstuffed on each. Clip the seam allowances around the curves on the arms and legs and turn the arms and legs right side out.

Free Pattern

Match two arm pieces right sides together and stitch around, leaving the opening as marked. Match two leg pieces right sides together and stitch around, leaving the opening as marked. Stitch across, attaching the face to the dress. Place the felt back of head on the other dress piece, right sides together, and stitch across in the same way.

I love an excuse to use all this fun stuff!

Each doll has felt hair and some have felt balls as pigtails, too. It’s really amazing to walk away with 10 new pieces of art. Making these dolls meant pulling out my scrap bin and button box and having a wonderful time pairing up patterns and prints. Everyone makes a series of tiny originals and we put them all out on a table and then walk around, choosing one from each group. Do you mean to lay all the layers including the chevron fabric together and to sew on the bias is the back and forth stitching of the chevron pattern?

I love flannel rag quilts, they are so squishy and huggable.You will place your fabric layers together on the square but you stitch on the bias.

I have just finished mine for a baby now a year old!

It took a lot lot of work, but it is really lovely, and a lovely technique.

I just finishined binding one yesterday and washed and dried it last night. Has anyone tried this with 5 layers of flannel yet???

I just hope the overall blanket is useable.

Diy Doll Blanket!

hey guys!

hope you enjoy this video 🙂 Thank you so much for watching!

I can think of doing it "bedspread style" for instance where you might have a wider center panel and a panel on either side that are half the width of the center panel. Reiblin mentioned, it is fine to piece your layers for fraying. It won't show at all amidst all the fluffiness.

I pieced together my layers and it was fine. But you could try a mini swatch and see before you tackle the whole quilt. With the chevron the fraying isn't perfect in the peaks and valleys but you can help it out with a bit of scissor clipping between washes.

I made the whole quilt, and then threw it in the wash to see if it would work. Or where it's a chevron, will the fraying still work because even though it's vertical, it's still at the right angle?

I am over thinking this and can't figure it out!

It seems like even if they are running parallel to the selvedge the angle could be right!

I think the overall effect is still great.

You could try snipping a bit after the first watch to encourage more fraying if you's like.

I quilted, the cut the flannel in line with the pyramids on the front.I just made my own chevron version by making a pyramid patterned quilt top and adding a solid cotton liner layer.

I just finished a second blanket for our very own baby who is due any day now. Do you know if you bought a medium or a small chevron print?

It's a home dec fabric and it comes in a couple weights. This blanket is amazing and looks so cozy!

I did gray/white chevron fabric for the one side and light yellow, light gray, dark yellow, and dark gray for the flannel.

I have recieved many compliments on the blanket and know it will be a special item for years to come.

I have is that there is little to now shedding after the first few washes. It is a unique piece that completes the baby's room. Pierce's: layers of cotton will work too!

My daughter wants a full size rag quilt for daughter's bed. Do you have to use flannel or will layers of cotton work ok?

But if you have a heavy duty machine it might be fun to try adding the extra warmth. It's actually a pretty heavy blanket as is, and you could do up to five layers of flannel, which you cut.

I think you could try this with batting--maybe a different cotton print sandwiching it, and then the flannels. The only bad news is, nowhere near me sells a thick enough chevron print for my liking to suit our cold weather, and ordering online would cost a fortune with duty. Well, it took me about 5 days but i was able to make it and well!

I love hearing about all your finished blankets!

I used the coral/white chevron and it is gorgeous!!

Hand Tied Doll Quilt Pattern

The material says that it is not recommended for washing/ drying. Gorgeous!!do you think it would work with fleece?

I think i can fix with a visit to the ladies at my local craft store.

I love the idea and especially the finished project. And it has so many valuable things to learn.

I finally finished and it's on the first wash cycle now.

I am new to the sewing machine so wish me luck!

If you are doing the chevron version the angles should be on the bias--maybe double check that the selvedges of the top fabric and the bottom layers of flannel and that your chevron fabric has angles that are parallel to the diagonal between the two corners. So if you are sewing/cutting straight lines be sure they are on the bias. The fraying won't work as it's supposed to if the stitching and cutting aren't done on the bias.

I brushed it softly and cut them off, but it still doesnt really look like yours.

I made a quilted, applique'd blankie for him.

I just made a small lovie size blankie using this technique.

I dyed the batting in colors that coordinated with my outer fabric.

I stitched my chenille cutting lines in patterns, such as leaves, hearts, etc.

I made two of the regular chenille one and have the stuff to make 2 more.

I am making a snuggie blanket size right now.

I have been wanting to make a chenille quilt since you mad the first one. The gray and white chevron would be so cute for my boy. Just the sandwich of the top/patterned fabric and 3-5 layers of flannel.

I loved your original chenille quilt - this new zig zag variation is adorable.

I had to wait a few days for the blisters to go away. What a great new technique, albeit time consuming, and a fantastic result. It's beautiful, and what a thoughtful gift!

You'll be able to work this up quickly and effortlessly. Receiving blankets with a crocheted edge make the perfect baby shower gift and will surely receive plenty of oohs and ahhs.Our new crochet blanket edging is simple and easy, created in just three rounds. Using an embroidery needle and 3 strands of embroidery thread, make a single stitch joining all 3 layers.

I don’t know about you, but those sweet little ties just complete the prairie look for me!

The distance between each tie will depend on your batting ranging from 2 to 8 inches.

I put my ties approximately 3-4 inches (7-10cm) apart. Grab a needle and thread and use a ladder or blind stitch to close up your quilt. This will make for nicer, less bulky corners. Flip your quilt right-side-out and press the whole doll quilt, making sure to press in your seams on the part the is not sewn. Once you’re done stitching, clip each corner, being sure not to cut your thread. Now that you’re all pinned, go ahead and sew around the perimeter of your fabric sandwich, leaving that 6inch section open.

You can mark this section by using color-tipped pins or my trick is putting 2 pins very close together on each side of my “no-sew” zone to indicate where to start and stop. Smooth out the sandwich and pin all over – both along the outside edge, but also throughout the quilt to hold all 3 sections together.

Aesthetic Nest

Mark off a 6inch section that you will not sew together along one side of your choosing – this is how you’ll flip the quilt out once you’ve sewn around the outside edge. Finally, lay your quilt top on the top with the right side facing down (so the backing and quilt top fabrics have the right sides facing each other – see the photo below). Next lay your backing fabric on top with the right side facing up. Now it’s time to attach the batting and backing by sandwiching them together with your quilt top. Press open all those seams and pat yourself on the back – you just made a doll quilt top lickety-split!

And finally sew your two long strip block onto the long side of the strip and square rectangle you just made. Now sew your three medium strips block to one side of your fabric square, so that you’ve made a rectangle. Now sew your two long strips together and again press open and flat. Once they are attached, press your seams open and flat. Start by sewing your three medium strips together, matching right-sides together, pinning, and stitching. Cut out all your strips and square for the quilt front. So, interested in making your own little doll quilt?

It ensures your fabric won’t shrink and warp your quilt once it’s complete, plus it’s just good practice for sewing overall. Though florals such as these are not usually my style, who can resist a little hand-tied doll quilt with such whimsical buds?

I have one almost finished and plan to make another.

I am making the bear from primary colors in 12 different fabrics.

I would recommend that you have quite a bit of sewing experience before you tackle this pattern.

I was surprised at the size - 50x60 inches approx. Its very time intensive but not hard to make. There are a lot of pieces to be cut out, which is time consuming.You quilt each piece individually so you do not have to quilt the whole giant blanket at the end.

I hope you'll enjoy reading about what keeps me up at night.

I made this exact blanket last year for me. Love the pattern and absolutely love the finished blanket!

I was just wondering how many yards of each fabric you purchased!

This eliminated the need to stitch it in the middle. A quilt with a pocket on the bottom that you could tuck your feet into, and when done, you just folded the quilt part into the pocket to make a decorative pillow.I would like to make one for my husband for his birthday.

I am understanding the self binding method correctly). It's constructed similar to a long pocket at the bottom of the apron and makes it so one's toes aren't left out in the cold if the blanket shifts!

The pocket is for tucking one's feet into!

I want to cuddle up with that blanket right now.

I have just discovered your blog and am so very pleased to have done so. You've done it again ~ completely beautiful and luxurious!

I stitched mine about 14" from each side, though. What a great idea to make a pocket for your feet.

I know exactly what you're talking about.

I love the different textures, patterns and colors that you used.

I love the fabrics you chose, the pattern and textures look so luxurious!

I would never get to use it here unless there was a smaller someone under it with me.
