  1. I just made this in a dramatically improvised way for my niece. (the doll I had is only 5in tall w/ legs, 3 inches with the legs removed to make as a pillow doll) Thank you so much for this post!

  2. I just acquired a 8.5″ fashion cushion doll. Will this pattern work for this size doll? I am finding it difficult to find bed doll patterns in this size.
