Yesterday morning I had to make quickly a little order, a gift for a baby. Immediately I thought in a rag doll, soft so it doesn’t damage the baby and he could catch it easily. Besides, it’s an easy craft if you do a simple design.
1- You can download the pattern of my doll here. Print it on paper and cut it to transfer the body of the rabbit to the fabric, in duplicate.
2- Then, cut the pieces half a centimeter from the edge and sew them together matching the goods sides of the fabric and leaving an unstitched part to turn the inside out. If, as it happened to me, your fabric frays, leave a wider margin and trim later.
3- To avoid folds, make some small cuts on the edge, specially on the curves.
4- Next turn the inside out and iron very well the edge of the doll, before filling it with the flock and closing it with hidden stitich.
5- To make the face transfer the pattern to felt and embroider the eyes and the mouth. And with hidden stitch sew it on the doll. If you’d rather sew it with a backstitch using a sewing machine, you have to do it before joining the front and back part of the doll.
You’ve got it.
