Heart 12 Inch Doll Dress

I Heart 12 inch Doll Dress

Here is my I Heart Doll Dress crocheted to fit a 12 inch soft-body baby doll.

This little dress was crocheted using my baby doll bunting pattern and just making changes to convert the pattern into a dress. I also used the reverse single crochet stitch for the trim on the neck, sleeves, and hem. If you are not familiar with the reverse single crochet stitch, it is also known as the crab stitch and makes a nice finished trim on a crocheted item.

The final touch on the baby doll dress is a little heart I crocheted. I just love how it added that extra special look to the doll dress. I hope you enjoy my free crochet doll dress pattern and please let me know if you have any questions as you work the pattern below.

14 Inch Baby Doll Dress

June 2, 2013 4 comments


This baby doll dress was crocheted to fit the cloth body dolls that are about 14 inches long and have the wider bodies. The doll has a 11 to 11-1/2 inch chest. I crocheted using Caron Lt Peach Country yarn for the baby doll dress and hat. Both items used less than 3 ounces of yarn to complete.

Doll’s head is 10-3/4 inches around. The hat I crocheted is about 11 inches around and 4-1/4 inches long.

Shoulder straps measure 3-1/3 inches long, dress from shoulder to hem is 7-1/2 inches long and 12 inches around chest with back closed with Velcro closure.

Baby Doll Booties and Hats

May 18, 2013 2 comments

I have been crocheting some baby doll booties and hats for Molly’s Babies. Molly’s Babies is in need of baby doll clothes and blankets for their dolls that they give away to children in need.

When I asked about the sizes they needed for their dolls, I was told just to crochet newborn baby sized items. So I used my crocheted cuffed baby booties pattern to make the booties. I used sport and fingering yarn to crochet the booties following the pattern exactly to make the off-white and blue booties below. As you can see, the booties are different sizes but I figure that they have many different sizes of dolls so the booties should fit one of their dolls.

For the rose colored hat and bootie set pictured at the top, I crocheted them with some worst weight yarn. Because this yarn was heavier, I altered the booties by only crocheting 18 stitches around for the toe portion. Then I only chained 7 stitches for the cuff and […]

Here is a Barbie baby doll top that I crocheted. I added a pair of my Barbie bloomers to complete the set which makes cute baby doll PJs for Barbie.

This set is designed for a Barbie doll with a 3-1/2″ waist and 5-1/4″ hips. You can just crochet the baby doll top and mix and match it with a skirt or pants to create different outfits for Barbie. You could also make the top longer by repeating Row 11 to crochet a cute Barbie dress.

Fashion Doll Bloomers

August 15, 2012 1 comment

Here is a quick crochet pattern for bloomers or panties for a fashion doll. In a recent post, I crocheted a dress for a 14-inch fashion doll. I needed some bloomers for under my doll’s dress and came up with these simple but effective panties for my doll.

The 14-inch fashion doll has a waist of 5 inches and 7 inches around at the hips. The crochet pattern below has bloomers that will fit a 14-inch doll. Then I have listed the changes necessary for a 11-1/2 inch tall Barbie fashion doll that has a 3-1/2 inch waist and 5-1/4 inches around at hips.

These bloomers were designed to cover the doll’s bottom under a dress and aren’t all that fancy. I just wanted a simple quick pattern for some panties and this crochet pattern fits that purpose. The waist maybe a bit loose but its snug enough at the hips to hold the bloomers in place without elastic. I hope you find the free pattern useful and happy crocheting to all.

Doll Stocking Cap


This doll bunting pattern was adapted and printed with permission from Sue Thomson who designed a baby bunting for a newborn. Her free crochet pattern can be found here. After re-working the pattern several times, I finally got the right fit for a baby doll that is about 13 inches tall.

I crocheted the doll bunting and added a stocking cap to finish off the outfit. The hat is more of a sleeping cap for this outfit but the crochet pattern can be used for any doll that has a 10-1/2” head circumference.

Enjoy the free doll bunting pattern below and happy crafting to all!
