Description

This collection of mix and match crochet patterns allows you to make bespoke dolls that represent the special people in your life so that everyone feels represented and included.


Representation matters when it comes to dolls for children - every child should be able to see themselves reflected in a doll and research has shown that this can have a positive impact on a child's self-esteem. This collection of amigurumi crochet patterns for dolls with different skin tones, hair types, body shapes, clothes and accessories will allow you to make a doll to represent all children everywhere.


Author and crochet designer, Nathalie Amiel, specialises in creating look-alike dolls that capture the spirit of the individual and she is passionate about creating crochet dolls for everyone. In this collection of crochet patterns she has designed a wide range of dolls, as well as their clothes and accessories, for you to use as a jumping off point for you to create your own utterly unique dolls. None of the patterns have recommendations for yarn colours so you are free to pick your own colours for hair and skin type and there are patterns for a variety of different hair types and styles.


Nathalie has designed a pattern for a Down's syndrome doll and a doll with vitiligo, as well as a doll with prosthetic limbs; crutches; leg braces; hearing aids; feeding tubes and eyeglasses. The collection also includes crochet patterns for a wheelchair, assistance dogs and a special teddy bear.


There are step-by-step instructions and photographs for how to make the basic doll which can then be adapted using the other patterns. You can then choose the doll's clothing from the crochet clothing patterns and there is a wide variety of different garments to suit every doll including underwear; t shirt; pinafore; dungarees (overalls); pants (trousers); skirt, jumper and various shoes and boots including Mary Janes, trainers and boots. Use this colourful collection to create an endless variety of dolls by mix and matching the designs. There are no limits to the design variations so you can create bespoke dolls for all the special people in your life.
