Since I released the free doll pattern Bitty Bit Cuddle Baby last week, there has been some interest in a Sew-A-Long. Hopefully, you’ve downloaded your pattern already. 🙂 If not, you can find it here, along with the instructional videos.
So, are you interested? Come join us in the BB Cuddle Baby Sew-a-Long! It will be fun sewing together & meeting some new friends.
Creating things is definitely my happy place & love to make things to give others joy! Let’s create some happiness together, shall we? 😉
To celebrate, I have something for you. 🙂 Hint: It was laborious, fun, exciting & frustrating – all at the same time! Some of you might be able to guess already, if you follow me on Instagram & Facebook. Or, if you’re reading this from a link in my email, that means you’re among the first to see it. 🙂
It’s a free pattern & video tutorial! The Bitty Bit Cuddle Baby Pattern. Yep. And, I’m excited to share it with you. The BB Cuddle Baby is a small doll, 4 in/10cm and is a perfect pocket doll for wee pocket.
It’s an easy pattern & perfect for the newbie sewist. A sewing machine is not required & many of the materials can be found around your home. If this is your first sewing project or very first doll making venture, I encourage you to use what’cha have & not go buy a bunch of supplies. This project is perfect for up-cycling fabrics & materials.
I tried to consolidate the tutorial as much as possible. It consists of 5 videos & will take you from the supplies you need to the finished baby. It’s the first pattern/tutorial I’ve ever published & is FAR from perfect, but hopefully it helps ya! If you have any questions, just let me know.
Also, if you make a BB Cuddle Baby, I’d LOVE to see it!!! If you share it on social media, be sure to tag me and use the hashtag #bittybitcuddlebaby, so I don’t miss it. All my social links are at the top of this page. Find & Follow Me!!
Be sure to check back to another hat option for the wee baby – a hand knit cap – I’ll post the pattern as soon as I finish typing it up & also add it to Ravelry.
I’ll include the videos below. I tried to keep them as short as possible, but ended up making the last 2 longer. So, I added time links in the description on YouTube. Hopefully, those quick links will help you easily navigate the longer videos.
Update January 2016: There is also a free knit cap pattern available. It’s a another hat option for your wee baby’s head instead of the sewn hat shown in the tutorial. 🙂
Miss Mia is quite the girl! She came to life in my studio, with warm, green eyes & dark, brown hair. She loves to wear a pretty dress, but then decides she really must climb a tree while wearing said dress. Oh, it's never boring around here.
Mia has been in her new home for a few weeks now. I've heard she may have a children's book written about her. That's exciting, huh? Mia will definitely make her mark on the world when that happens. I'll keep ya posted on that bit of news.
