Mimi’s Elf Named Stretch Takes Cover of Soft Dolls and Animals

Mimi’s Elf Named Stretch is featured on the cover of the current issue (dated January, 2011) of Soft Dolls and Animals. Inside is a free pattern for Stretch and an amazing ten pages of simplified instructions on how to make him. (His needle modeled chest and clothing are in a later issue – we have just sent them in.) If you’ve ever wanted a FREE Mimi pattern, this is it! If you’ve ever wanted a simple Mimi pattern, this is it!

Mimi's Elf Named Stretch Takes Cover of SD&A!

We’ve also promised our SD&A readers some video demos to help make Stretch. The first video is Mimi’s Ladder Stitching Demo. This brand new demo takes exactly five minutes and shows you how to pin, mark, and ladder stitch everything you need to make a doll.


We hope you enjoy it!

One more thing for our SD&A readers (and everyone else) — we have a copy of the free pattern for download. The copy in SD&A had to be printed on two sides of the paper to save space. Ours is printed on just one side and can be printed directly on card stock if you want to. You can download it from http://mimidolls.com/Stretch_the_Elf.PDF. Unfortunately, if you want the instructions, you’ll just have to get the magazine — we won’t be publishing them until the magazine (and the additional articles) have finished their run.
