In this 3 hour class, beloved Makehouse teacher Shayna will show you and a young person everything you both need to know to each make a simple rag doll! You will learn how to construct a basic doll with yarn hair, an embroidered face, and sewn clothes. It's the perfect chance for you both to express your creativity through stitching!

IMPORTANT: This is an inter-generational class! Each registration is for one adult plus one child (ages 8+). Come with your chid, grandchild, niece or nephew, or young friend!

Skill Level: Advanced Beginner

Skill requirements:
The adult and child must each know how to thread and use a sewing machine, wind a bobbin, construct simple seams, and be familiar with sewing terminology such as "right sides together" and "seam allowance". Hand sewing or embroidery experience is a bonus but is not required knowledge. (We’ll go over techniques in the class).

In this workshop you will learn:

  • How to cut/mark out your doll
  • Learn how to make doll clothes
  • How to make your own unique yarn hair
  • Embroidery techniques 
  • Doll clothing design and embellishment

**Please be advised that you may not finish your doll in this class, but we will provide everything you need to finish it at home!***

What We Provide:

  • Equipment: sewing machines and all tools
  • Odds and ends of trims and embellishments (for the clothes)
  • Embroidery floss for the face: eyes, mouth, eyebrows and optional freckles or even tattoos!
  • Doll and clothing patterns (e.g. skirt, pants, shirt, dress)

What You Bring To Class:

  • 1/2m of canvas or medium weight woven, your choice of colour, for the doll body
  • 1/2m cotton or scraps of fabric from your stash for clothes
  • Yarn for hair (Tip: dollar stores and Michael's often have small skeins available)

We offer a 20% student discount on fabric and other supplies. (Please note we do not sell yarn!). You can use the discount on-line and in-store. Please contact us for your code once you've registered for your class!

Group size: Maximum 8 guests (4 groups of 2 people)
