Book Description

Welcome to the wonderful world of Maddie! 

Inspired by the Half Yard Sewing Club's favourite heirloom rag doll, join a brand-new Maddie on her adventures throughout the seasons.

Beginning with advice on all the fabrics and tools your need, along with handy techniques, learn how to make your 66cm (26in) tall Maddie doll and her fun wardrobe. Choose from dresses, tops, jeans, shoes and more; the instructions for each are explained clearly with step-by-step photos and tips.

And who can forget Maddie's cuddly (and mischievous) dog, Mo... learn how to make him too!

Every item in Maddie's wardrobe, and Maddie herself, has a pattern printed at full-size on template sheets stored in an envelope at the back of the book. Each garment's template has multiple variations from adding collars to turning trousers into shorts so you can tailor the garments to your own Maddie!

Make a Maddie for your family, so that you or your giftee can love her for years to come.
