Pattern Testing | Heidi and Finn Mini Pals Doll and Backpack

How cute is the new Heidi and Finn pattern pack?!

I had the opportunity to be a part of the tester group, so I got to see other fabulous versions. Some of my favorites included a Star Wars theme– with Leia and Luke, and a Native American theme. I think there may be a tester tour soon, so I will update those links if they become available.

As you can see, there are so many options for these fun patterns. Here is my version. I used fabric that was leftover from other projects, so it was a great stash buster!

The doll

She was made out of canvas that I had leftover from a large painting I created. Her body is made from seersucker and cotton. Her hair is made from some of my handmade felt. Tessa chose the hair color. I was secretly hoping she’d choose pink, but she wanted it to match her own hair. I also needle felted the eyes onto the canvas.

The day that I was working on the majority of this project, I was babysitting my nephew. After he left, my sweet little Tessa asked if we could make Kash a boy doll. So, I whipped this boy version up lickety split.

Sorry about the blurry photo. I was in a hurry to get this little guy to his new owner. 🙂

The clothes

The clothes pack comes with 2 hat styles, a blouse or dress, some jogger pants, a skirt, and some knee socks. The one piece that I feel this pattern pack is missing is a boy’s shirt. The blouse is definitely girly. But, I just cut out a sweatshirt shape with the fleece I used for the jogger pants for Kash’s boy. For Tessa’s girl, I cut the blouse pattern piece down the middle front to make a cardigan/ jacket sort of shirt.

I had also made a dress, using the same panda print fabric, but it looked more like pajamas. I liked the skirt much more in that print.

The Backpack

This pattern actually comes with a backpack version or a messenger bag version- both with the front pocket for the doll.

I think this may be Tessa’s favorite part. She loves that she gets to wear her dolly and store other toys and things in her backpack. It’s just the right size for her little body.

All in all, this is such a fun and versatile pattern. I think it may become my new go-to for little toddler gifts!

Right now, you can get the pattern bundle for a special price of $11.50! Go here to snag that deal!
