Links To Doll Tutorials, Patterns, Costumes & Molds

I use many doll heads and doll body parts for demonstrations in my classroom.
Many of my students have had both obvious and difficult questions concerning dolls and textiles over the years. Sometimes, students feel a little self-conscious about asking obvious questions, however, readers should remember that not every person has had grandparent or parent to teach him/her the basics of sewing. I was very fortunate to have a grandmother who did this. She spent countless hours going over instructions with me; she was a very tenderhearted and a clever teacher.

Questions and Answers About Sewing:
  1. What are the differences between two dimensional and three dimensional doll patterns?
  2. What kinds of materials should I use to stuff a doll body?
Two Dimensional Doll Patterns: Please read the Terms of Use before using the following patterns folks. You may make and sell as many dolls as you like, but, do not redistribute the patterns over the web, represent the designs as though they are your property or resale patterns that are not your own to profit from. Teachers may print these out and give them to their students during class to use for their art assignments. Charitable non-profit organizations are also welcome to distribute hard copy of the patterns as inserts, giving credit to the designer, Kathy Grimm. Do not alter the information on the patterns these are copyrighted.
