The 12” Slender Doll Base is a versatile pattern that can easily be customized. It is comprehensive, providing full written instructions and example photos to guide you through the doll-making process. There is minimal sewing, as there are only two main pieces to be attached in the end: (1) the head/arms/upper-body, and (2) the legs/lower-body. In addition to fiberfill stuffing, pipe cleaners will also be inserted inside the doll’s body to keep the doll stabilized, yet flexible for various poses!
