RE: Pillowcase doll pattren

Step 1

Lay the pillow case flat. Press each side with a hot iron to remove wrinkles.
Step 2

Take the top corners of the pillow case and tie a single knot in each side. Tie the knot so there are a few inches of material below the knot; these are the arms of the doll.
Step 3

Open the pillow case up. Stuff a wad of batting in the top of the pillowcase, between the two arms. Form the batting into a ball.
Step 4

Gather the pillowcase around the bottom of the batting. Wrap a rubber band around the bottom so that the ball makes a head.
Step 5

Glue or sew a piece of lace over the top of the head to form the brim of a bonnet. Tie a piece of ribbon around the neck of the doll to form the bonnet ties and to cover the rubber band.
Step 6

Embroider a face on the doll. Draw a face on with permanent markers, or leave the face blank if you prefer.
