i want to make ds a doll - the kind where you can do the doll's zipper, button, laces, etc. - i am not even sure what you call that kind of doll. i am a beginner sewer, so i am looking for something that i can actually accomplish! do you all have any pattern suggestions (free or cheap)?<br><br>
i also want to make a girl and boy soft doll (not necessarily waldorf style) that i can make clothing for over the years. this would be for both ds and dd. they are both just starting out (2 and 10 mos.) so i anticipate many years of doll play to come. i'm looking for just a nice functional doll that can be carried around and played hard with and that i can add pieces to over time.<br><br>
i've been searching this forum as well as online and am just not finding what i am looking for. i think i am probably not using the right search phrases.<br><br>
thanks for any help!

This looks like a nice pattern for a soft doll<br><a href="http://judisdolls.com/babybows/index.html" target="_blank">http://judisdolls.com/babybows/index.html</a><br><br>
It's supposed to be sized for newborn clothing so should be easy to find patterns to fit it.I haven't made them yet but I plan to make one for DD and DS. I've saved a couple of their tiny outfits for their dolls.<br><br>
I haven't seen a pattern for the dolls with zips, buttons etc. However I have made dolls clothes with multiple fastenings which we just used on the dolls we had.<br><br>
I've also bookmarked this pattern for a snake made of sections which fasten together with different methods <a href="http://sewing.about.com/od/toysanddolls/ss/toysnake.htm" target="_blank">http://sewing.about.com/od/toysanddolls/ss/toysnake.htm</a>

I bookmarked the snake.<br>
Post a pic if you decide to make it. Im a sucker for not liking patterns that don't include pictures <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent">
