Supplies
Fabric - You will need woven or non-stretch fabric for the Doll bodies, Clothing, Hair, Cat/Dog bodies, and Angel Wings. Cotton or quilting cotton, medium or light weight denim, or flannelette are great options. TIP - Fuzzy fabrics that look like your pet can also be used. Detail Fabrics - These are the fabrics for the little details on the Dolls (e.g. the Glasses, the Cat/Dog nose, etc). The edges of these are not finished so we recommend a non fraying fabric such as felt. You will need assorted colors in scrap size. Many stores sell felt packs, or it is a great one to raid your stash for. Stuffing, poly-fil for stuffing inside the finished dolls. Make sure to use a filling which is non-flammable, and age & safety appropriate for the person who will be using or receiving the the doll. The amounts listed below are for sewing one piece. Multiply the total by the number of pieces you would like to create. You can use any colors you like.

How do PDF/ digital patterns work? Simply download, print, and sew. You’ll need a free Adobe Acrobat reader program and any home printer (or a nearby copy shop for A0 printing). Once you’ve printed the pieces, tape or glue them together. You’ll find an easy-to-follow how-to guide inside the pattern instructions, plus support in our Facebook group.

The trim-free pattern comes in A4 or US letter printable sizes and includes full pattern pieces and a detailed tutorial to guide you every step of the way. An A0 format (pattern pieces only) is also included should you wish to have your pattern printed professionally. PDF Layers allow you to select and print only the size/s you want/ need.
