    Materials Needed

    You can find links to sources for many of my favorite tools and supplies here.

    You'll need. . .

    • 1 fat quarter each of main shirt fabric and shirt lining - must be a non-directional fabric
    • three 5/16” snaps for the shirt or a few inches of skinny hook & loop tape
    • 1 fat quarter fabric for the overall shorts
    • scraps of fabric for the overalls lining and ruffles
    • two 5/16” snaps for the overalls
    • 1 sheet of wool blend felt for the purse (I used lavender)
    • scraps of felt for the flower (I used fuchsia and banana cream)
    • embroidery thread to match the flower felt and for the rainbow (I used DMC #3746, 601, 726, 603, 816, 900, 907, 996, and 156)
    • Sulky Sticky Fabri-solvy (optional, but very strongly recommended)

    You might also want. . .

    • size #8 embroidery needle
    • fabric glue stick
    • sewing clips (way better than pins for holding felt layers together)

    This pattern is not available for commercial resale. That means you may not copy and sell or digitally distribute the pattern or any variation of the pattern

    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 dolls and clothing 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. :-)

    Such a cute outfit

    The instructions were very clear and the outfit was cute to make. I used the pattern for the purse but made it with quilted fabric as I did not have any felt. I want to make the shorts for my daughter's girls!
