Patchwork Kit-Kat

I made a new Kit-Kat doll from my Make-Along Animals pattern and did a little tik-tok video while I did it. Which is a little harder to do now that Phoebe has abandoned me for school. Since I’m having all the quilty feels these days I decided to make a sort of patchwork version of Kit-Kat. Kitty is made up of 3 fabrics. Normally I do a solid for the body, a print for the head gusset and another solid … More

two tone blond make-along doll

Any yarn can be used to make hair for a handmade cloth doll like the Make-Along dolls… bulky, dk, sport… wool, acrylic, roving, mohair. Whatever you like to achieve the look you’re going for. It’s also fun to use a few different yarns together. Here I used two very similar shades of a golden yellow and it gives her a great full head of sunny blonde hair.

For this doll I pulled the yarn from both balls at the … More

Butternut Bear

Our newest addition to the Make-Along family is a teddy bear doll. Phoebe named her Butternut and I think it fits perfectly. Made up in faux fur I think she has a great classic teddybear look. She could be made in wool or even cotton fabric as well, just nothing stretchy so she keeps her shape.

She has the same body as the Make-Along dolls so she can wear the same clothes, although her legs are shorter so her pants … More
