Thought I would take some pictures as I made one of the stash dolls
I hope I can describe how I went about making a doll using two 7 1/2" blocks for the body.
The pattern is on photo #1. Instead of pinning the pattern onto the material I traaced the patterns onto the wrong side of one of the blocks of material and used the drawn lines as my stitching line when I put the second block under the drawn block

Two blocks pinned together ready to sew. Note open areas for turning and stuffing.
