Looking for a special gift for a new mom? How about a sleepy baby softie? This sweet little doll is just the right size to snuggle up next to a live sleepy baby, and it’s fully washable when made with the specific materials listed. What’s more, you can make it in the hoop of your embroidery machine!
This adorable baby softie measures approximately 12" or 15” from the tip of the head to the tip of the toe, and approximately 9" or 11” inches from arm to arm, with the separate pieces stitched out, embroidered, and joined in the hoop. (Side seams are assembled on the sewing machine, leaving a small side opening for stuffing.
The Critter Baby doll is designed to fit a 5"x7" or 6”X 10” hoop (or larger) and includes 4 versions: the sleepy bunny, the cub, the puppy, and the kitty, each with 5 embroidery designs: the front head and face design, the head back design, the front body design, the back of the body design, and the ears. The face and front of the onesie have a lacey embroidered design that mimics a border of the onesie hood and front zipper.
The designs can be customized for skin tone, onesie color, mock lace edging color, and embroidery design colors to make it uniquely yours!
Make one or several dolls with a variety of skin tones and hair colors. You are only limited by your imagination and the colors of felt and fleece you choose. And, since polyester craft felt and fleece are relatively inexpensive, you can afford to make multiple dolls as gifts for all the little ones in your life.
The 5x7 and 6x10 ITH Critter Baby dolls are also available individually at Pixie Faire.
