Friendship Bowl 14" to 18" Doll Accessory Pattern

  |  

The ‘Friendship Bowl’ is based on a something wonderful my Gran did for her community for many years. She would make bowls from feed or flour sacks, and then from pretty fabric when packaging changed, decorate them beautifully depending on the circumstance and fill them with goodies. She would then give the bowls to the poor and needy in her community. New babies were welcomed with a bowl filled with things the new mom would not have been able to afford; new brides would receive bowls packed with pretty dishcloths, teaspoons, crochet doilies, etc. Whatever the situation or need, my Gran created a bowl filled with love. Templates for a large and medium-sized bowl, together with a dolly-sized bowl are included in the pattern. The bowl is easy to make and fun to decorate. They are incredibly useful – for bread rolls, fruit, candy, nuts and raisins, etc. They are super for picnics or the beach and make wonderful gifts. For dollies – they are ideal for play as they are durable yet light enough for the doll to ‘carry’.

This easy Step-by-Step PDF Crafting pattern is designed for use with dolls of all sizes such as American Girl®, A Girl For All Time®, Journey Girls®, Disney® Animators, and WellieWishers™, as well as those of us in the human size!
