Anyone can make a doll*, as an individual, or as part of a group. As you can see from our doll gallery, every doll is unique. However, it’s important that the dolls reflect the child’s own culture and experience, so we ask you to read our guidelines before you begin, and to make your first doll based on one of our patterns. After that, your creativity can take over!
We’ve given a list of the tools and materials you’ll need, as well as information about our doll making kits. You can find out where to send the dolls in the Contact Us section of the site.
*If you feel that you’re not up to making dolls, but have those valuable knitting or sewing skills, why not help by making simple knitted wraps, bags or clothing? Contact us to talk about what you could do.
