Bandanna Dolls

What you need:

  • bandannas or other fabric
  • yarn needle and embroidery floss

  • stuffing (available at craft stores)
  • doll patterns (see below)

What to do:

  1. Use the links below to find and print the pattern of your choice.
  2. Fold the bandanna or fabric in half. Draw your doll shape on it and cut it out.
  3. On the front piece, make a face with the embroidery floss and add embellishments like buttons, pockets, or a collar.
  4. Run a bead of fabric glue around the inside edge of the back piece (leaving a 2" section open for stuffing), glue the two pieces in place, and then stitch them together.
  5. Stuff your doll, then glue and sew the opening shut.
