Here are patterns for the dolls, gowns, pants, and a one piece romper outfit. There is also a pattern for a larger hospital gown for a Teddy Bear or other stuffed animals.

String Diamond Table Runner
Round String Mug Mats
Make these these easy mug mats - as a simple introduction to string quilting. Please take a look at my book, String Quilt Style, for further inspiration for string quilting. These mug mats make great indoor Frisbees. Fun, but no one gets hurt and nothing breaks. These can be used by quilt shops to introduce string piecing.
