Summer time is time spent out at the pool and having a splash of a time! Every pool party needs 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!
These rings are designed to fit 18 inch dolls like American Girl®. They can also be used for doll play with other 15-20 inch dolls such as Bitty Baby®.
Included in this pattern are instructions to make a basic ring, six-panel ring, lifebuoy, snow or river tube or baby float.
The PDF pattern works with NON-Fray fabric with a plastic consistency or non-fiber feel like oil cloth, laminated cotton, PVC or vinyl. I did not need any special accessories to work with this fabric but included a guide to working with these fabrics.

Easy pattern and very quick

Wow this was so easy I made. 12 rings and 11 floats in one day. The hardest part was finding the cute fabric to use. I sis use some reuses able diaper fabric but it's a bit expensive. Another option is inexpensive table clothes for spring and summer with the plastic front

I like this pattern but I found it difficult to sew up the ring when stuffed. For the second ring I left open a seam in the underside and completed the inner and outer sewing then stuffed it trough the open seam and slip stitched the seam closed.

What fun these were, matching up colours of the rings to bathing suits. They put together easily and quickly. A real hit!

This pattern is great. It went together faster than I thought and it is oh so cute. The instructions are great and step by step photos always help. A must have for every doll this summer.
