Free Pattern for a Darling Soft Sculptured Baby

Most of you who sew, quilt and craft are familiar with Fairfield Processing.  I personally use their fiberfill for the Soft Cloth dolls I make.  I came across their website, and I realized they are a great source for project ideas, patterns, and community sharing.  One of the patterns that I was drawn to was a darling soft sculptured “baby” designed by Marinda Stewart – author, teacher, and quilt designer.  This easy-to-make baby girl or baby boy has the sweetest embroidered face and is especially irresistible when wearing its own doll-sized Babyville Boutique diaper. 

Download these free patterns and have fun making your baby their new best friend!
