If you have always wanted to make your own cloth doll but were afraid to because you didn’t feel confident finishing her face, this machine embroidery set is for you.
The set includes three sets of four lovely faces-- Pandora, Penelope, Philomena, and Prudence-- custom designed to fit the Thimbles and Acorns Pandora, an 18th Century Doll Sewing Pattern (Available separately).
Mix them up, customizing the eye color, lip color, hair color, and clothing of each doll to create your own beautiful collection. Each face design in the set, by FROG Princess Fashions, was hand drawn and digitized to stitch out smoothly in the hoop of your home embroidery machine.
Three options are available: 4”x4” hoops can use the set of designs for the mini doll or the 18” set without stitched guidelines, while 5”x7” hoops and larger can use both designs above and the designs with stitched guidelines for placing the paper pattern exactly around the embroidery. With 10 formats available and more upon request, you are sure to find the format for your machine and hoop.
Gather inspiration from the adorable samples created by our talented team of Pixie Faire testers to create your own unique doll.
