Handmade Cloth Doll – free face cut file

I may have all boys, but I have few little nieces who I get to sew all things girly for! For my niece’s 2nd birthday I decided to make her a handmade doll. I had so much fun making her! This is where my fabric hoarding comes in handy – I always have an abundance of little bits of fabric I can’t bear to part with.

I used Amie Scott’s Free Ragdoll Pattern for the body of the doll.

I am terrible at hand embroidery so I decided to use heat transfer vinyl for the doll’s face. I made a cut file for the eyelashes and mouth. Free download available below! I ironed the vinyl on the face before sewing the doll together.

The eyelashes measured about 2.5 inches across and the mouth about 0.75 inches wide.

Such a fun sewing project to experminet with texture and fabric. Go make one for all the little girls you know! If you make one please tag me on instagram @handmadejoydesigns #handmadejoyblog. I would love to see what you created!

Music Teacher Gift – Free Cut File

Its almost the end of the school year for my kids and all of their activities are wrapping up. Time to start getting the teacher gifts made! I decided to make our piano and violin teacher a tote bag.  A tote bag is a practical gift and really who doesn’t love a cute tote? I have included the cut file in this post as a free download for you so you can make one too!

I made a simple tote bag out of some white canvas I had in my fabric stash, but a pre-made tote bag works just as well.  This is such a quick and easy project, prefect for last minute gifts. I simply cut the heat transfer vinyl with my Cricut machine and ironed it on. This design would look great on mugs and t-shirts too. I included the PNG and PDF files as well so you could even print off the PDF and frame it if you prefer.
