Yarndango Project 32 – Simple Doll Lab Free Video Pattern

I finished filming and uploading my first video pattern for this doll.  It took many, many hours of work between making the doll itself, filming and editing, and uploading videos, plus I’m no videographer.   As a matter of fact, everyone should be grateful that the video is not in 3-D because there were several times I got too close to the camera with my work and I think I even poked the lens at one point!  But the result is pretty cute, in my opinion.  I thank my friend, Que for putting me up to the task, or I might never have tried it.  There may be more video patterns in the future…once I get a better internet connection.  The upload speeds were killing me.  Fortunately, I survived and am able to show you this:

So, to make this doll via video, you can go here:  Simple Doll Lab Free Video Pattern on youtube.  There are also four separate parts to the video that are posted on my channel individually.  The link I gave above is for the entire series of videos linked together.  It consists of:

Part 1 – construction of the head

Part 2 – construction of the body

Part 3 – construction of limbs and attaching

Part 4 – hair

Or, if you prefer written patterns, I’ve also written up instructions in a pdf file which can be found here:  Simple Doll Lab on Craftsy.  UPDATE:  Video is now available at the bottom of this post.  This doll is my own design so we don’t have to worry about licenses so it is free for you to make and sell items from but please do give me credit, link to my page, share on facebook, etc.  You know the drift.

And, of course, since I made an adorable, sweet little doll,  Amiguruthi has gone the opposite route and made an Oogie Boogie!  LOL.  You have to see this.  I did not know what it was – where does she FIND these ideas?!  But it is super cool, creepy, and cute all at once and it even has special reflective features!   I love it!

    Ha – sometimes we have the same idea, like animal superheroes, sometimes we go to the opposite ends of the spectrum lol.

    I love this little doll, she looks so sweet. I haven’t had a look at the video yet so I will do at some point :D

    :) Well, I’m hoping to get that peanut pattern up in the next Yarndango post. Someday I’m gonna re-do that knight too. Oh gosh – I really hope I get to live forever to make all the things I want to make. My list is ever-growing. I need to start hiring elves. If you do have any critiques of my video when you get a chance, I’d like to hear them. It was my first and I know the video part could probably be improved but I’m thinking based on the views and downloads that the pattern itself is fine.

    What a cute dolly!

    Thank you so much! :) Did you get rid of your blog? The comment luv is going to a generic wordpress link.

    Not sure why it’s doing that, but I do still have my blog.

    It seems to be working okay now and is linking to your most recent post. Maybe I was late updating the plug-in or something. Just glad it’s working again.

    Help! I can’t get the written pattern, it is not downloading. Maybe because I’m using a tablet. I would try it on the computer, but it’s at the apple store so I’m stuck :( (wow kindles are hard to type on! Could it be more User friendly?!) I reallly want to make her though, looks like a great pattern. Think I’ll just try the video :)

    Wow long comment, sorry!

    No worries, Finch! I love long comments – just not from spammers, LOL! I’m sorry you had trouble downloading the file and that I am just getting around to responding now. Please let me know how the video is working for you!
