I am trying to make a Cabbage Patch doll for a grandchild. She has an old doll from her mother that has seen better days. It needs replacing without too much cost. I used to have a pattern book, but since downsizing I no longer have it.

Is there anyone out there that still has a pattern book and can photocopy the pattern? My email is wisepen at hotmail dot com

With much appreciation and thank you for your troubles.

You can buy ready made Cabbage Patch dolls for not too awful much. Various discount stores have them at various times. I haven't seen any for more than $20.00 unless it is a special occasion one.

Google "free printable doll patterns" and you might come across a pattern for a Cabbage Patch type doll. They aren't really easy to make (I made two of them way back when the doll first came out.) Most of the major pattern companies have patterns for all types of doll clothes. I don't know that the dolls can be made any cheaper than buying them ready made.

Back when I made them you could buy vinyl or rubbery type heads with or without hair and then you bought the fabric bodies, they were a special kind of flesh colored knit fabric and then you needed to buy the stuffing for them and then hand stitch the belly button, fingers, toes, ankles, wrists, and if I remember right you even had to stitch in the bum crack, and then get the head attached so that it would stay on.

Does anyone know where to get a pattern for the body of Cabbage Patch Kids?

I have one for the soft sculptured body patterns here somewhere at my house. I bought it when my daughter was a small child and the dolls first hit the market. I would be glad to copy it for you and email it to you IF I can find it. You can let me know. It may take me a while to locate it in my sewing room, as it has not been used in a couple of decades!

If southeastgeorgiapeach can't locate the pattern for you, there is an old (1984) Simplicity pattern #6999 called Precious Pals. It is supposed to be a Cabbage Patch Kids look-alike. The pattern includes sewing instructions to make a soft sculptured 18" doll and clothes. Since you only need the body, it should work for you. Unfortunately, you will probably have to pay for the pattern.

If you Google: "Precious Pals" Simplicity you will get several hits. Here is one link for you:

I know that you probably thought that I had forgotten about the pattern but I just found the book today. Only trouble is the pattern pieces are in a big yellow envelope somewhere else. I still haven't found it yet. But here is the cover I scanned to show you that I really do have the book. I am going to the Antiques Roadshow next Saturday, June 27, in Raleigh, NC and am trying to figure what items I am going to take. I found the book today, quite by accident but wanted to followup with an email to you. If you no longer need it, let me know. So sorry for the delay in getting back with you. (06/18/2009)
