Pattern Details

You Get. . .

  • A digital pattern delivered by email. (If you're not sure what a PDF pattern is, you'll find more info here.)
  • Pattern for a cute bikini with no ties - I hate doll clothes that require bow-tying! This has an elastic top so it just pulls on over her head.
  • Pattern for a matching tote bag to hold her gear.
  • A cute towel, of course, with a fun patterned border.
  • And a swim ring! With a swim ring your doll can stay in the water All Day Long, just floating and playing and twirling and dreaming.
  • Pattern pieces are full-sized and ready to print directly onto paper, freezer paper or Sulky Sticky Fabri-solvy. No enlarging or tracing needed!
  • Detailed instructions and lots of full-color step-by-step photos. You’ll never feel lost or wonder if you’re doing things right.
  • Links to videos teaching you all the techniques you need to know to complete the project. You can totally make this!

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!


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. :-)
