A Cold Day Outfit Pattern


product options:

This little outfit is perfect for cold weather and includes a hand-stitched wool-felt duffel coat, a hand-knit stripey wool sweater, a pair of machine- stitched jeans, a pair of hand-stitched wool felt boots, and a hand-knit wool cable scarf. It will fit all animals in the Little Animal Family.

This pattern does not include instructions or templates for making the animal doll itself. Please purchase animal doll patterns separately.

Please note: All of the clothes designed for the Little Animal Family are interchangeable and will fit the rabbit, kitty, deer, mouse, and fox softie dolls. They will also fit all of the Dovegray dolls.

Separate, individually downloadable PDF patterns are also available for lots of other clothes and accessories so you can add to your doll wardrobe.
