Summer time! Pool time! Every pool party need some fun inflatables. This pattern includes instructions to make stuffed toys to look like pool inflatables for your doll. The pattern works with external seams for a more authentic inflatable look. These are not real inflatables and cannot be used in water. Remember your doll cannot play in real water!
The rafts are the perfect length for 18inch dolls but any doll type can be used with them.
Included in this PDF pattern are instructions to make two different rafts: A rectangle or a more modern curved raft.
The pattern works with NON-Fray fabric with a plastic consistency or non-fiber. I did not need any special accessories to work with this fabric but included is a guide to working with these fabrics.
