Today we are sharing our Rag Doll from the Santa’s Workshop Collection. Although we’ve included instructions for adding the face, think of her face as a jack-o-lantern and make the dolly uniquely yours. The pattern includes sewn on eyes but when I went to embroider her face I decided to go a different route! I wonder what yours will look like 🙂
The Rag Doll Applique was made to fit on a 6″ x 6″ block but can be enlarged or reduced to meet your needs. Enjoy!
