This 6” doll fits in the outfits included in Thimbles and Acorns Charlotte and Pandora doll patterns as well as most of the 6” and 8” doll outfits found in the Pixie Faire catalog.
The simple design of the Bear Doll means it sews up quickly and adapts well to a variety of medium weight woven fabrics. It can also be made up in some more stable knits such as minky, suede cloth, and low-pile furs. The arms and legs are all attached in seams and the body is carefully shaped and sized to match that of a standard 18” dolls. The face is finished simply with two button eyes, but the basic design lends itself well to a wide variety of creative adaptations to give it a unique and personal look.
