Meet Ruthie


Introducing the newest addition to the Retro Mama PDF sewing pattern family...Here's Ruthie Bear!


Pink rosy cheeks? Check.
Sweet sleepy eyes? Check.
Mary Janes? Polka dot ears? Cute dress? Check, check, and check.


I know I'm starting to sound like a broken record when I tell you about my patterns, so this time I'll just share some feedback I've received for my Greta doll, so you know what you're in for:

"My nieces are all receiving these for Christmas! Fantastic pattern! They turned out great!"

"Already have a doll in the works. Such a cute doll and easy to follow instructions. Thank you!!! I'm sure this will make a couple little girls really happy!"

"Great pattern with very clear, well written instructions and pictures. I can't wait to start stitching. Thanks!"

"My first attempt at doll making was a success thanks to your very clear and simple instructions! Thank you!"

So if you were wondering whether you'll be able to make a beautiful doll for your little ones, the answer is, "Yes, you definitely can!". And if you ever have any questions while you're stitching, I'm happy to help you out, just send me an e-mail.


By the way, my Doll Dress & Cape pattern fits Ruthie, yay!


She's super cute without all the dress embellishments, too.

Also, I've just restocked all my wool blend felts. Keep an eye out for some Christmassy combos this week. If a bundle that you like isn't available, please let me know! And I'm happy to do custom felt bundles, as well.

Happy Stitching!
