Prudence ITH RagDoll


Little Miss Prudence is quite the proper gal with her crisp white collar and Mary Jane shoes.  The design and seams are all sewn in the hoop (ITH) of your embroidery machine with easy-to-follow photo instructions. Prudence is designed to be a play doll for children with her floppy arms and legs – just right for hugging and snuggling!

  • All designs and seams are stitched in the hoop of your embroidery machine.
  • Even the limbs are attached by the machine with an easy, step-by-step process.
  • Engineered to minimize shifting while you stitch
  • Requires 2 hoopings:  one for limbs and one for body/head.  (A third hooping for wig is optional)
  • Instructions included for making a skirt on your sewing machine.
  • The neck opening in the back of the doll can be hand-stitched or glued to finish the doll.
  • Can be made for small children, since there are no small parts or attachments that can be pulled off.
  • See details and supply list for more info

• Embroidery thread to match your fabrics (see note below)

Fabric NOTE: This project works best with woven fabrics, or well-stabilized stretch fabrics to prevent stretching. If using stretch fabric – cut-away stabilizer MUST be used on front and back to prevent distortion when stuffing the doll. TIP: use fusible stabilizer on stretch fabrics to stabilizer them. Shoes and collar are intended to be felt or other non-fray materials.
