Exciting Changes at With Love, Hannah Dolls & Patterns

This is bit long…but, I want to share some important & exciting changes with you!

Doll Babies by With Love, Hannah Dolls & Patterns

With Love, Hannah Dolls will no longer be the name I sell my OOAK dolls under. (More on that down below.) From now on, WLH is all about making things together, including dolls, with fun patterns & tutorials!


Read on…

When I began making dolls 3+ years ago, I actually didn’t intend to sell them. As a lifelong doll lover, along with a passion for making things & the fiber arts, it felt very natural to try to bring a wool “soul” to life.

Doll making, in the beginning, was just for me. Although I shared a bit of the process with a few people, it was a personal, meditative, artistic outlet that I relished & found great joy in. Eventually, I realized it had become a way to express myself artistically and something I wanted to do every day, if possible.

I began selling them & created this site, as well. Then, last year, I began to consider sharing some of my doll patterns, after lots of requests. 🙂 So, I decided to make that happen in the New Year, 2015.

In April, I published my first pattern, along with a detailed video tutorial, all with the sewing newbie in mind. It’s the Bitty Bit Cuddle Baby pattern. It’s free! Go check it out, if you missed see it. There’s a Sew-A-Long group as well. Come join us!

If you want to sew or craft a little 3D love for your wee one, I’ll help you, even if you’ve never picked up a needle & thread before.

Or, if you’re a seasoned seamstress, maybe you’ll find a tidbit here to inspire you.

There are lots of other patterns & projects in the works for later this year & I’m very excited to share them with you!

If you don’t want to miss any of it, be sure to subscribe to my WLH news. All the new stuff posted here will come right into your inbox.

The  name, With Love, Hannah, holds great significance to me. I shared all about that here. 🙂 It makes me happy to to see how the WLH name continues to fit perfectly as this site moves forward.

So, are you wondering where to find my OOAK dolls? Here’s the scoop!

With the decision to publish patterns here on WLH, I created a different place to share my other creative work, including OOAK dolls. If you’re reading this because we’ve connected through With Love, Hannah Dolls, thank you. Thank you for your interest in my work & I truly appreciate your support of WLH over the last few years!

If you want to continue following my doll making, be sure to visit my new site – www.faydrajones.com – It’s the new home for all my doll making endeavors. Be sure to come meet Samuel, the first doll in my new collection.

Also, be sure to subscribe to my newsletter at faydrajones.com for OOAK doll updates too. This is a different newsletter than the WLH one. It will only be about current news from my faydrajones.com site.

Also, if you’re on Facebook, I have a new Facebook page too! Come on over & like it, would ya? 🙂 By the way, my WLH page isn’t going anywhere, but will transition to all about patterns & crafts, as well. So, all my doll updates will be on the new page, linked above.

One last thing…Are you on Instagram?  If so, come Instagram with me!  I love sharing whatever currently going on, including new patterns, my OOAK dolls, food & such. I esp. love seeing what everyone else is up to on IG too!


Wow! Thank you for reading this far…you definitely deserve a gold star!

Go get a bowl of ice cream. 😉 I’ll join ya.

See ya soon!!

Bitty Bit Cuddle Baby Sew-A-Long – Come Join Me!

Bitty Bit Cuddle Baby Sew A LongSince 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? 😉



Bitty Bit Cuddle Baby Pattern is Ready!

Happy Spring, Happy Easter, Happy Day! 

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. 🙂Cuddle Baby Pocket Doll Free Pattern

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.

UPDATE:  Join us in the Bitty Bit Cuddle Baby Sew-A-Long!!

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.

So, here ya go!  Bitty Bit Cuddle Baby Pattern

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. 🙂
