a coat for tiny rag doll and a free tiny hat tutorial

winter rag doll

Of course she needs a sensible coat!  And it’s reversible! I’m pretty excited about the reversibleness of the coat – and the nifty way it goes together – it feels like kind of a magic trick ( I included a video link for that part). I also love that the coat is built from just two pieces and demonstrates an awesome system for making reversible doll garments – you could modify the pattern and use the same easy technique to create all sorts of lined or reversible little clothes.

I also made a little lined flat bottomed satchel for her foraging and a hat  too. She is ready for adventure.

Find sample pages from the pattern here and here.

The winter wardrobe pattern is in the shop now and I’m including the little hat pattern in this post too – download the template here and instructions are below – it’s very simple, easy and quick – you can make one in under twenty minutes.

For the tiny hat you will need a little wool, felt or flannel and contrasting embroidery thread. Pin the hat pattern to the fabric and cut out.

Whip stitch all around the bottom edge with a strand or two of embroidery thread.

Fold the hat in half and whip stitch the back seam from the bottom towards the tip.

Knot just before the tip and fray the tip. And finally tie little lengths of embroidery thread to the ear flaps and knot.

She is fully outfitted for her travels. A couple other notes on the pattern- the coat and satchel will fit mr. socks too and you could scale it for other dolls. I have not tried the hat on mr. socks – but I think it would work if you enlarge it a little.

If you make a tiny wardrobe I’d love to see – you can email photos to info at ann wood handmade dot com.

    I have my pattern but haven’t made my tiny rag doll yet – but now I will! I just love her gorgeous winter outfit, and it’s timely here in the UK, as we’re having our first snow of the winter 🙂 Thanks for the tiny hat tutorial, so cute. I love Mandy Pattullo’s work too, and have been on a couple of her workshops. Thanks so much Ann for your blog, I look forward to it every week.

  2. This is lovely Ann! I can’t wait to add these – and especially the hat – to my dollies wardrobe – thank you for the download. Actually, I need to make another dolly – my mum took the first ones… Happy days!

    Thank you so much for your lovely patterns. I have found your patterns to be excellent, the little doll’s clothes fit her perfectly and I just know this little coat will too. Love the addition of the little hat, scarf and bag!
