Flat Emelie and Matt Tutorial

Do you love paper dolls? I do... but the paper tears so darn easy! 
My daughter has the same love for paper dolls as I did as a kid, however her dolls just kept getting torn up by her little brother.  Even the magnetic ones lost their heads!  So, I was on a mission to figure out a way to let her be able to enjoy her paperdolls without the fear of her little brother being able to tear them apart.
Then it hit me... I can make some out of fabric! Genius... right?  So... out with the drawing pencils, paper and a couple hours later, I had my "Flats" templates.  Can you tell how excited I am about these little pieces of fabric?

As I was making these little flats, I decided they needed a bag all to themselves to be carried around in.
So.. go... now... and check out my new tutorial on the Moda Bake Shop, Flat Emelie & Matt {named after my kiddos}
I hope you love them as much as I do.

  17. Your paper doll quilt is so cute! And a very good idea. I loved paper dolls as a child. I couldn't get my daughter interested in them. I loved to design clothes for them with paper, pencil and crayons.

    1. The tutorial has actually been removed from the site because of their new makeover. They are now in the form of Fabric! The dolls and clothing have been printed on fabric panels so all you have to do is cut and sew... no tracing involved. My new fabric collection is called Flats and is being manufactured by Moda Fabrics. It is available in stores in May 2013. You can learn more about the Flats on my website at http://www.angelayosten.com

  23. I can't find your tutorial at Moda. It says the link doesn't exist. Do you have it somewhere else? I'd love to include it in a quiet book I'm working on for my granddaughter.

  24. Your link at Moda doesn't work for the adorable flat fabric dolls. I looked on your Etsy site to see if you are selling the pattern but it is not listed. How can I get this pattern and tutorial? I would love to make some of these for my sewing room decor with some of my stash.
