Karl (with a K) Boy Rag Doll pattern



- +
What you get+-

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!

You Get. . .

  • PDF file delivered instantly. If you're not sure what a PDF pattern is, you can find more info here.
  • full-sized pattern pieces – no enlarging needed

  • links to videos teaching you all the skills you’ll need to make your doll – from sewing curves and stuffing, to stitching up that stuffing hole. You can totally do this! It’s a workshop in a pattern!


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!
