Bratz inspired doll

I am done!!! This easy and simple pattern for new doll as the title says is inspired by Bratz dolls. Dear friend Ruth from one of my Facebook groups was looking for this one and I offered help to create one for her. I wasn’t familiar with Bratz dolls at all! That is why the pattern took me long time to make.

First of all I am not fan of Barbie looking skinny dolls. Then

as I wanted to create the similar possible measurements to original doll took me forever to find them. Found several bloggers crocheting clothes and giving measurement of doll, but what I missed was torso length and legs without feet (as the feet varies from collection to collection).Further more, Bratz have specific eyes and silicone, huge lips πŸ˜€ Again no, no…and more troubles to create!

At the end I decided I will make a basic Bratz body shape, but the rest will do easy way, for everyone to make it.

First will show you my Bratz doll.

BratzBB curly hair front

As you can see, I have tried hard to reach Bratz looking doll expression. For that I painted the eyes and lips. Hair is made from satin ribbons. Even the dress doll is wearing is crocheted after dress one designer created especially for Bratz.

Pattern for this dress you can find on this link (there you can find few more nice patterns for your doll to make):

This pattern I had to divide into three parts. I will not write the pattern here, in the post, but will add it directly to Free Patterns page and Tutorials and Help page (how to sew limbs and hair making are there). Β It is easy pattern but long as I have added many photos.

You will find three patterns to download in order to create the basic doll body and hair.

Patterns are:

1. Basic Bratz doll body

2. How to create hair from satin ribbon

3. How to connect limbs to the body

Now I can show you my doll. Bratz inspired doll BB way πŸ˜‰

Hope you have enjoyed seeing this new creation form my BB room. Even more I hope you will enjoy making your dolls. Specially the new way of creating this beautiful hair.

Thank you all for your time and happy crocheting.

    1. Thank you Shelly

  2. Thank you! My oldest has been being me to make a Jem doll and I just don’t have the time to sit down and figure it out! This will be a life saver!

    1. Glad this pattern will help you out in this Jem doll emergency πŸ˜‰

  3. Yay! I love them! I am soooo impressed by the eyes on your Bratz doll. They are perfect! I’ll teach you how to embroider eyes if you teach me how to paint them! (I haven’t forgotten my promise tutorial… just taking a while getting to it.)

    You’ve included so many fun and unique details with these two dolls! The ribbon hair is a fantastic idea! It looks so much better than yarn. Can’t wait to see how you did it. I want to make some for my own hair. lol.

    1. Glad you like this “project”! πŸ™‚
      Ribbon hair is so easy and so much fun to make. And it really looks so natural. I thought of making wigs for my nieces. Think It would be possible without gluing (have this thought evolving for week now…you know…what I told you for the cases when something can’t figure out, I leave it to “cook” πŸ˜€ It is cooking now!
      I know you haven’t forgotten about embroidery lesson. I really miss knowledge of embroidery in this work. I would like to teach you how to paint the eyes, but at the end can show you only the technique. Will try to come up with some decent tutorial with nice photos (me and photos-that is always fun) !

      (for some reason I didn’t succeed to make a link and connect the post with patterns – but hair tutorial on satin ribbon you can find under Help page. Have a look at it, it is really easy and fun).

      Hugs

  4. She is very beautiful!

    1. Thank you Petra
