Li'l Luvs Baby Animals

Hi everyone!  I'm sorry it's been so long since I lasted posted anything, but I've been working on a new collection of baby animal patterns and I'm so happy to say that the first two are finally ready!  I've named these wee animal babies 'Li'l Luvs' as they're just so adorably cute and tiny, measuring at just over 7 inches tall.
I began this project a few months ago with the intention of making six different animal dolls, each with the same body proportions so that their outfits could be mixed and matched between them.  Well, it's been quite and undertaking to say the least!  I can't tell you how many different sizes and shapes these little characters have been through in the design process, but I think I'm finally happy with the end result and I'm ready to share the first two patterns with you all!  Please meet the Li'l Luvs Ellie and Badger!  And yes! they can stand on their own!!
Each pattern will include instructions and pattern pieces to make the doll (either Badger or Ellie), along with a little felt sundress, a cute pair of scalloped felt undies, shoes and a fabric outfit - a sweet little romper for the elephant and a darling little dress for the badger!

I would recommend some hand and machine sewing experience to complete these patterns, though I have provided many detailed photos and easy to follow instructions throughout, so a novice sewer should be able to work through them if they take their time.

Here's a few more pics of the little cuties.

I just love how adorable they look in their little undies and shoes!

The patterns for the Li'l Luvs are now available in my Etsy shop!

Have a wonderful week!
