Here are two little dolls that would make lovely Christmas presents for little girls and they are not too difficult to make.

Both dolls are made from the same pattern by Wendy Phillips at Flutterby Patch. Their dresses and cardigans are removeable which I feel gives them extra play value.

The clothes don’t take up that much yarn, so a good way of using those odd balls leftover from other projects and you can have a lot of fun with colour combinations.

I changed the hairstyle from the pattern as I can never get a neat look when I have loose strands of yarn covering the head.

I knitted the dolls on 4mm needles, both doll and clothes were made with DK yarn and are 13″ in height.

As the clothes are removeable you can make a few outfits as little girls do love dressing up dolls.

As they are so colourful they can also make an attractive decoration for the nursery or little girls bedroom.

They do look like they are the best of friends 🙂
