OK, raise your hand if one of your first sewing projects was a rag doll. Yarn for hair, wonky embroidery for a face and a slightly lumpy dress sewn together with oversize running stitches… Sound familiar?
A stuffed friend made by hand (especially little hands) has such charm, and makes a wonderful vehicle for using up fabric scraps or upcycled clothing bits.
Joel Henriques from made by joel whipped up this pair of couldn’t-be-more-simple dolls from vintage fabric. Click over to his blog to see how smitten his kids are with these squeezable sweeties.
Makes me wish I still had that doll I made decades ago. Do you still have yours?
