How to make

Step 1

Using the correct size template, cut two body shapes and set one aside.

Step 2

Draw the remaining template shapes onto the paper side of the Heat ‘n’ Bond and cut out just outside the line. Iron these onto the chosen fabrics following the pack instructions, then cut out more precisely.

Step 3

Arrange these fabric pieces on the body shape and press into place. Add the red heart button for the lips and a sequined embellishment if required.

Step 4

Place body back-to-back with other body shape and pin. Machine stitch 1cm from edge from point A to point B and turn doll right sides out and press.

Step 5

Add stuffing, then close seam by hand.

Step 6

Add black dots for eyes, using a little glue for extra security if required.

Please note these dolls are for use as decorative cushions only and are not suitable as a child’s toy.
