I've searched through many of the doll making sites to find and share only the ones that included free patterns for making dolls.I hope you enjoy looking at all the different dolls that I've found and that you'll be enticed into making one of them.

      I used to make a pattern#5 doll when my children were little. They are all over 50 years old now. How they loved those dolls. I gave them for Christmas presents one year too. I am happy to find them again.
