Feel Better Friend #4

My fourth Feel Better Friend, for a tiny Club Foot warrior.  Children with club feet (ankles that turn inward, outward, or downward) wear a set of boots and braces for as much as five years after birth, after several casting and manipulations shortly after birth to orient the feet into the proper position.  So the sweet girl receive this doll has several years of braces ahead of her.

I was lucky to find that one of the knit sweaters in the Arne & Carlos book fit this doll almost perfectly, changing to DK weight yarn and size 3 and 4 needles.  All I had to do was shorten the sleeves slightly.

She is on her way to her new home, and I am on my way to making some tiny cloth dolls!


  1. Es una muñeca muy dulce. Espero que sea una buena compañera de la niña.

  2. I just discovered your blog. What a sweet doll.

  3. These dolls are amazing... what clothes patterns did you use. love the dress with this jacket. Hunter outfit? Thank you so much for all your wonderful ideas... great artist

    1. Thank you for your kind words, Jannett. There are many patterns for the Feel Better Friends on their Facebook page, which is a closed group, so you have to join. If you have a hankering for making dolls for kids with health issues, this is the place to be!
