Our dynamic doll duo, Sheryl & Dolly!
These pattern pals work together to bring you some crafting fun. Dolly Pattern products will build your confidence in your crafting abilities and inject some giggles into the world of rag dolly making.
Our mission is to get your creative juices going and bring a traditional classic raggy doll bang up to date.
We welcome beginner sewists and dolly ninja's alike, we strive to deliver a great product, a lot of personality and keep our tribe of fun crafters happy with energetic and vibrant content that you can actually, really use!
She's always had an affiliation with all things fabric and thread. Both her grandmothers' are brilliant at sewing and her first stitches were made in the 1980's on a cast off pale yellow 'Elna' (the one where you changed the cogs to change the stitch effects!).
Sheryl's first creation was an extremely dodgy (now absolutely priceless!) applique cushion cover made of felt in the shape of an ice-cream sundae - produced one drizzly English summer day with Nana Louisa in North Devon.
The hunt for engaging sewing patterns is always on with Sheryl, who has created Dolly Pattern to be a fun resource to inspire your creative sewing and gather together a community of like minded crafters.
Our Journey So far
Dolly Pattern was created by a crafter. Important because we know exactly what we're doing ad how best to serve you.
In mid summer 2017, Dolly and Sheryl signed a 2 year deal with mega making giants Create and Craft TV to bring the joy of Dolly and her educational sewing experiences to the nation.
Since then 100s of happy sewists have joined the monthly Dolly subscription club and enjoyed FREE sewing tuition from Sheryl whilst they make their Dolly and her wardrobe of wacky costumes.
Sheryl runs the whole shebang. From product design, to photography, to the very active Facebook group and is the girl that packs all the parcels - mostly single handed, sometimes with the help of her amazingly supportive family.
