By far, one of the absolute easiest ways to create plush friends is by using printed panels.
Most of the work is done for you, you simply stitch, snip and stuff.
The great thing is that most panels include the instructions right on the panel...
Panels are a great way to provide a hand made gift without being overwhelmed by the process! My girls all love their little doll panel rag dolls too!
I made the little Modkid dolls for our monthly project in May 2011 and they were very well loved!
This is one of the precious recipients in China! Isn't she delightful!??!
Doll panels....a simple way to hand-craft a smile and a hug!
