These little dolls are brilliant for unexpected young guests because they are so quick to make. You can use materials that most people have around the house and the children can have fun making them with you.

Total Time: 10 minutes

Yield: one doll

Supplies:

  • 1 square of thin flexible material such as cloth, plastic cut from a carrier bag, cotton handkerchiefs or paper kitchen towels
  • 3 short lengths of string, ribbon, or cord or loom bands/ponytail bands
  • 1 small piece of stuffing, this can be kapok, cotton wool, screwed up tissue, or a polystyrene ball if you have one

Steps:

  1. If you wish you can cut off 2 opposite corners of your square. This is optional.
  2. Turn your square face down and place the stuffing in the middle.
  3. Holding the stuffing in place, tie a band around it on the right side to form the doll's neck.
  4. Tie two more bands at the corners for her hands.
  5. If you cut the corners off previously, you can use these for head scarves for other dolls, but this can be a bit fiddly if the doll is small. You can draw, paint or stitch a face on your doll too.
  6. See how easy it is to make one of these dolls out of scraps, and bits and pieces of tissues, string, and plastic.
  7. It will take you only minutes to make a whole family of dolls and the kids will think you are magnificently clever!

This doll was made using some bits and pieces of lumber from my husband's cabinet shop. I just couldn't bear to see that nice wood go into the trash barrels.

Back in the 1970s there was a pattern for a rag doll in the Golden Hands Encyclopaedia of Crafts which was published in weekly parts. Unfortunately, I have lost my copy in a recent house move. Has anyone a copy of the pattern they could forward to me, as I would like to make it for my young grandchildren.

I 'm looking for a Golden Hands doll pattern too. I have the doll that I made for my daughter 35 years ago. I am making a pattern from it, but would love to find the original. My doll is about 15" and has a yarn top knot, side curls and and an embroidered face. She looks old fashioned. Does that sound like your doll?

I have just come across your requests for the golden hands rag doll pattern. I have one tucked away and I just wondered if Lin Charlieworm and Paula still wanted a copy?

Does anyone remember having seen a pattern for a reversible frog prince? He is approx 12" tall and turns completely inside out through his mouth. A green (obviously) frog on one side and a rather flashy prince (if a bit ugly!!) on the other. I made him about 20 years ago and cannot find the pattern now. I think it might have been a Golden Hands pattern.

I am searching for old doll patterns and doll clothes patterns from 1960 and before that time. I would like to make dolls from long ago if I can find existing patterns that are out of print such as Kewpie Doll, Betty Boop, Blondie, and other cartoons, etc. If anyone has these items or knows where I can locate them I would appreciate that so much. Thanks.

Is this the doll that looks like a cabbage patch doll? I googled Debbie Ann doll and that's what I got.
