Pillow Dolls

I'm not sure that "pillow dolls" is the right term for these. They're so cute and sweet it seems a bit too descriptive. Maybe something like plushie princess or softie pies would be better but still, I think they're fun.

Pillow Dolls
The biggest one is about four inches tall, they're just big enough to stuff in a pocket, and I've made a princess, a prince, a evil stepmom/witch (sorry all you stepmoms out there, I'm just going with the Cinderella thing here), a gnome/dwarf/Rumplestiltskin, a fairy godmother (why do godmothers get all the praise and adoration?) and a cat.

Why a cat? Why not? I just thought it would be cute.

Pillow Dolls
This shot shows the group with the knitted bag I put them in which I'd made separately--it's a pattern called "Dante's Purse" and it's easy enough--that link will take you to the pdf pattern file. I thought about making this Fabric Dolhouse but really, I was out of energy at that point and called it good.

These are just so adorable! I think the dolls would qualify as "softies", but "pillow dolls" sound cute too!

This set would be the perfect thing to take along to church for little girls who like to wiggle. :)

Cute! Did you freehand draw the people patterns? I'm not good at drawing , but I bet I could use a coloring book as patterns. Thanks for the ideas.

Those are so DARLING! Are they made with French knots? I LOVE THEM.
