Young artist with her doll
This is a great long term sewing project, one that can be picked up as and when. The children really loved designing the clothes once the doll was finished. This sewing book called ‘Made By Me’ by Jane Bull for kids is great and has step by step pictures/instructions for making the rag doll plus patterns that you can trace.
