    Sunbonnet Sue doll pattern?

    Someone has asked me to make a Sunbonnet Sue doll to sit on a shelf? Looked for online patterns but cannot find one. Have got the door stop pattern but this one needs to sit on a shelf. Any help is appreciated.

    I've never seen a SBS doll pattern. You may have to buy a pattern for a cloth doll pattern and make the bonnet, apron, and dress...or use the legs from another soft doll pattern and add to the door stop pattern?

    How about a Holly Hobbie pattern? Holly and Sue are pretty similar.... I found this after doing a cursory search for "holly hobby doll pattern".

    to help it sit on a shelf--when you stuff the body line the base with stuffing[to keep it smooth]then make a calico bag to fit in the 'bottom' use fill the bag plastic pellets /or dry sand to add weight

    And don't stuff the legs too full or she won't be able to sit.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    Thanks for your help. Yes I think Holly Lobby pattern is the closest thing to SBS.
