Reformer Ruby 23" Cloth Doll Pattern

  |  

This pattern was inspired by an incredible 6 year old girl named Ruby Bridges, who paved the way for people of color to receive an equal education.  Pattern includes full color photographs and step-by-step directions to make this adorable 23" cloth doll wearing a removable dress.  It also includes a pattern for a book bag.  Doll, dress and book bag can be made from cotton, hair from felt and yarn and shoes from felt.  This pattern is the second in a series of Women in History patterns that celebrate the strong, brave women who have been inspirations to all women.  I hope that these dolls will inspire young girls everywhere to go for what they want!
