About thirty years ago I made dolls like these for an orphanage in the Philippines. I came across the pattern when I was having a bit of a tidy up in my work room – that is how I happen to have made them again.These two are not complete. The arms and legs are formed by stitching through the stuffed dolls. You can see that the size varies depending on the type of wool used and the amount of stuffing inserted.
The pattern I used was a hand written one which I must have copied from a book at some stage. The creator of the pattern was Gwen Merrill and I did a search on the internet and found the name of the book on Ravelry
