Stitch up a sweet, heirloom toy with one of these beautiful doll sewing patterns! I pulled together a list from some of my favorite pattern makers, including a bunch of free doll sewing patterns and doll sewing tutorials if you’re on a budget. There are doll sewing patterns for felt, fleece, and cotton so you can sew stuffed friends no matter what fabric you’re working with.
