16 Inch Baby Doll Diaper 4

There is a feeling of accomplishment when I finish off sets of items for the donation. I feel like there should be celebratory music or horns. This is the last of the 16 inch doll diapers I need for the 2023 donation and I couldn't be happier to have them finished off. I now have the diapers, the bibs, and the wipes done. While not the most exciting projects in the world they do add to the play value of the dolls the children receive. Having these finished in January means they won't be forgotten as other stuff comes up during the year.

The diaper is made using a free pattern you can find here. I've adapted it to fit the 16 Inch Baby doll by using a K hook. I use snaps to close my diapers not buttons so I don't skip stitches in the first row for the button holes. I also add a reduction row at the crotch to make the diaper fit a little better.

Ken Sleeping Bag

I've been working my way through various accessory projects and it was time to make Ken's sleeping bag.

His sleeping bag is made with the same free pattern I used for Barbie's found here.


I used Hobby Lobby's I Love this Yarn Autumn Stripes for this project. (I note this because I want to buy more for other projects and I'm terrible with remembering names of colors.)

After you establish the actual sleeping bag portion of the bag distance becomes more important than row counting. The rows are accurate for establishing the pillow and where you want to chain to begin working in the round for the bag but as for the length of the bag it really depends on your doll. I didn't measure for Barbie or Chelsea but I will the next time I make the bags. I did for Ken however and the bag from top of pillow to where I stopped the rounds to join was a little over 13 inches.

Lots to Love 14 Inch Baby Doll Snuggle Sack

I've finished the snuggle sacks for the smaller dolls so it was time to make one for the Lots to Love 14 inch Baby doll. You can find the free pattern here.

The larger doll sleep sack has the addition of a flower decoration and I decided to add it to the snuggle sack.

These snuggle sacks work up really quickly if you need a quick baby doll item. When I finished this one I tried it on the 16 inch Baby doll and it will fit it just needs more length. I will just need to add more rows. It won't need to be wider for the sack to fit the doll.
