I used a pattern from Magic Cabin for the jointed baby doll. I am really pleased with how it turned out. I probably spent 10 hours on this one. The next shouldn’t take as long. I redid it a few times till I got it just right. I love the size b/c newborn clothes fit the dolly, which we have plenty of. I used bamboo yarn for the hair, which eventually pills.
The sling pattern is from the Maya Wrap website – altered to fit a baby doll. I found the rings at the Farmers Co-Op – sewn using the x box formation. The material is from an old oxford shirt.
