Ruby Lou Dolls

I was so excited to make these dolls for my girls this year for Easter. You can find the pattern here.

My sister in law Abby wrote this pattern and, although I have to admit I am a little biased, this has been my favorite doll pattern. I have used a couple of different patterns but I will tell you a few reasons why this one is my favorite - besides the fact that it is just so dang cute! The first reason - I love the hair. I love that it is long and doable (I have both of their hair braided here). The hair makes the doll look like a little girl and not like a little woman. I love the collar (I added a button). I love the reversible skirt. And I love the shoes! I love that they are sewn on so that they aren't always falling off.

And my girls love them too!

  1. Super cute. When I have a girl (and believe me, I day), I will make one of these. Or two or three. I love all the things that you named. Except maybe the collar. I've never been one for high necked clothes. hehe. But I guess a modest doll is way better than a half naked bratz doll. Ok. I'm sold on the collar as well. =D

    Oh, and I love the leggings as well.
