To Sew

Loli Dolly is a quirky Lalaloopsy-style doll by Quirky Artist Loft (and there’s a separate pattern for clothes for Loli Dolly or a store-bought Lalaloopsy doll too!). Ever since my daughter got a hand-me-down Lalaloopsy, she’s been obsessed with them. I’m sure she’s love a handmade version!


For something a little more whimsical, the Blue Fairy Doll by Noialand is beautiful. I love the little touches, like the butterflies.


The Mary Felt Doll by Maria Palito Patterns is a great little girl doll. Her outfit, glasses and bow in her hair are so cute.


A similar-styled doll but with moveable button joints, is Miss Tippy Toes by Dolls and Daydreams:


And since I can’t seem to resist a doll with glasses, also check out Master Tippy Toes, also by Dolls and Daydreams:


My daughter loves her ballerinas and fairies, so the Sugar Plum Fairy Ballerina doll by Funky Friends Factory would be perfect for her:


For a more 3-dimensional look, this vintage doll pattern available from Memory Lane Patterns is adorable:


Another Waldorf-style doll pattern is the Tasha Doll by Morrissey Dolls (which includes a pattern for the rag doll’s rag doll – too much cuteness!):


If you’re looking for something a little different for the older doll lover, check out the “Slightly Weathered Ladies” pattern, available in the Kate54 shop.


To Knit

If knitting is your craft of choice, Jasmine and Violet from Dolly Time make a cute set of dolls. How cute are the dresses and cardigans?


The Knit fairy doll by Amy Gaines comes with a toadstool pattern too:


Maisie and Sunny Sally by Toyshelf just have to make you smile too (especially that gorgeous little dolly!):


These folk dolls by Edith Grace Designs – Adeline and Bettina, from France and Denmark – are really sweet and remind me of wooden peg dolls:


Bonnie by Lynne Coles Creations is a quirky knitted doll (maybe for the older doll lover!):


Another knitted doll with lots of detail (and character) is the Gypsy doll by JoL Arts:


To Crochet

Let’s not forget crochet options. I love amigurumi patterns, and there’s lots of options for dolls.

Chloe the Doll by Delicious Crochet is a fun, quirky girl (yes, I definitely have a thing for dolls with glasses!):


Kate the school-girl is a fun design, with a bobble-head vibe (by Cute Crochet Friends):


For something simpler with lots of ideas to add your own flair, there’s the Amigurumi Doll Pattern by All So Cute.


Mysterious Cats has a cute crochet sugar plum fairy ballerina pattern, and you can purchase a set including the nutcracker pattern:


Here’s another sweet ballerina by Herter Crochet Designs – I love the detail of the laces and bow:


For something a little different, who wouldn’t want a set of Big Bang Amigurumi dolls from Crochet is Cool (or is it just me being a nerd!):


Lastly, I can’t resist Frozen! Check out this cute Anna and Elsa crochet patterns (patterns sold separately) by Nellagolds Crocheting:
