Baby Doll Blanket


I love the old leaflets that have complete wardrobes and accessories for dolls. You don't see them much anymore, but when I can find the out of print ones I buy them. Even if they aren't a perfect fit for the dolls I'm donating, I find I can often adapt patterns if I work an extra panel in the back if the doll is a bit bigger or reduce the size if the doll in the pattern is larger. Sometimes the clothes don't work, but the accessories are wonderful. That was the case when I purchased the out of print Dressing Up Dolly, Leisure Arts 2725. The original dolls these were designed for aren't available, however, the items are working out for my modern substitutes.

Today we have the blanket that goes with the basket I mentioned on Friday. This was actually not designed to go with the basket, but as part of the Christening set. That pattern called for sports weight yarn and knowing I'd already decided this one would be for the 15 inch doll, I opted to make it with worsted weight yarn to make it large enough to use with the basket.


The blanket has a pretty weave pattern to it and it works up nicely. I plan to try some of the outfits in this leaflet at some point for the 12-inch donation doll. Up next, I am working on a sweater set for the 15-inch doll from a pattern that the Easter Bunny dropped off.
