Dotee doll
These dolls are really fun and easy to make, they can be made with scraps of fabric, ribbon, beads, felt, and lace as well as so on buttons, sequins etc. These dolls allow you to be really creative

  • Step 1

    Draw a template about 6 x 4, onto white paper. The template can be like a rectangle and then at the top of the template just cut off the edges so that it looks curved.

  • Step 2

    Then fold the fabric in half and attach the template. Cut round the template and you should have a front and a back to the doll.

  • Step 3

    Next cut out a face using felt, I draw the eyes and the mouth as well as the cheeks onto the felt some actually sew on the faces. Then sew it onto the front of your doll.

  • Step 4

    Then sew on the tail hanging down with the beads that I have chosen to go with the colour of the dotee.

  • Step 5

    I next sew on the hanger which is the ribbon on the back of the dotee.

  • Step 6

    I put the back of the dotee ontop of the face and start to sew it together leaving the top open so I can turn it inside out.

  • Step 7

    Once turned inside out I then use cotton wool as I can't find polyfill where I live and then sew it together. Then you can embellish it, I use wool for the hair, lace for around her waist, ribbon etc however you want.
