Fat Quarter Competition Entry – for One Thimble

A few weeks ago One Thimble announced a Fat Quarter Competition where you had to design & sew an original project using One Fat Quarter of fabric.   You could use small pieces of fabric that together make up one fat quarter of fabric plus whatever buttons, zips, ribbon, lace and other trims you needed, but no more than one fat quarter of fabric.  So this is what I came up with.  I call them my ‘Pocket Penny Dolls’.


You can make two of these dolls using small pieces of fabric that in total make up a One Fat Quarter.  I have used white linen for the head and arms, felt and a little wool for the hair, and cotton fabrics for the body and legs.  Their faces are embroidered and they also have a flower embroidered in their hair.  They are 9″ high dolls that are quick and easy to make, and their arms and legs are sewn into the seams so they can put up with lots of playing too.  I loosely based the design on my ‘Don’t Worry Doll’ pattern.  I reduced the pattern templates and then modified them to make these cute little dolls.  I love how cute they turned out!  So now you can put a Penny in your Pocket and you’ll always have a little friend to play with!

One Thimble are having a People’s Choice Award over on their blog with all the competition entries.  There are some great entries for this competition – so make sure you pop over and vote for your favourite.

Happy Sewing!
