The internet is an amazing source of ideas and inspiration for dollmakers, not to mention a great place to find free patterns! The three dolls above were all made from patterns made freely available by their creators.
I got turned on to fabric dolls (again) by a friend from the Hitty's Knittys Yahoo group, and went searching for dolls with sewn on felt hair. One great place to look is Pinterest, where I found the links to these three dolls.
Josephine, the doll with blue hair, from the blog While She Naps.
Pepper, with the brown braids, from the blog Paisley Roots
Lily with the red jacket, from the blog Make It, Love It.
