Karl (with a K) Boy Rag Doll pattern
Meet Karl. Karl with a K. He's a cuddly, huggable doll - who's tough as nails when he slips on his cape and mask.
My daughter pointed out that you could use the same pattern to make a companion Bad Guy - she suggested dressing him in black and white stripes, giving him a frown instead of a smile, adding stubble to his chin, and giving him a black mask and no cape. Brilliant!

He's 16 inches tall from head to toe, and 8 inches across the widest part of his hips.
Easy! There are parts where you'll need to sew slowly - and I tell you in the pattern just where those tricky parts are and what to look out for to be successful.
And remember - the pattern has links to video tutorials teaching you all the skills you'll need to make your doll. If you're comfortable using your sewing machine you can make him!

For example, you may not print the pattern and sell those copies.
You may, however, sell anything you make with Shiny Happy World patterns as long as you are the one making it.
For example, if you're using this pattern to make stuffed animals which you sell at a craft fair or in an online shop, that's great!
Talk to Me
If you're hiring out any part of the process, please get in touch and we'll work out a fair licensing agreement.
For example, if you want to hire someone to machine embroider the faces, or do all the stuffing for you, those two scenarios would require a licensing agreement. Get in touch! I'm easy to talk to. :-) firstname.lastname@example.org
