Matilda and Poppy – PDF Rag Doll Patterns now available

It’s always such a wonderful feeling when inspiration strikes, and this time it was a desire to do something fun with lots of patterned fabrics in wonderful colors. Thus, Matilda and Poppy were born! I also had the itch to draw or paint some colorful faces, and that, along with some rag doll inspiration, led to these two fun dolls. They are not difficult to make, and there are lots of possibilities for variations depending on the colors and fabrics you choose. The PDF patterns are available in my Etsy shop – clicking on the window to the right will take you there. I will also have some kits made with all of the fabrics gathered for you, which makes it easy to get started making your own right away!

Matilda is ready for chilly weather with her lovely dress and handmade pom poms to warm her ears:
