inspiration: rag dolls

Image from

This book has been on my radar for a while as have been rag dolls. After seeing some great dolls online and finding tutorials I’m set on making a doll or two.

I really like this tutorial, which comes with a pattern (yay!).

And here are some beautiful dolls I’ve seen online:

Sally, made by Carolyn (whose blog Handmade by Carolyn is like an amazing sewing compendium)

Minirilla — a doll gifted to designer Marilla Walker. You can find photos of Minirilla on Marilla Walker’s Instagram. I’m curious to see which of Marilla Walker’s designs Minirilla will sport next!

This doll by ohhhlulu.

Finally, Jess Brown’s dolls, which I discovered through the While She Naps podcast. I really recommend the podcast, too.

Have you made any dolls? Have you spotted any great dolls recently? Please share.

I write about sewing, knitting, and may sometimes be tempted to talk about books.
