Print the Chubby Angel Pattern
Please read all directions before you begin your Chubby Angel doll project. Prewash your fabric before cutting out the Chubby Angel Pattern as most fabrics will shrink when washed. The Chubby Angel pattern fits on three pieces of standard or A4 copy paper. Note: The sewing instructions for the Chubby Angel doll are not included on the pattern itself.

Cutting the Fabric
This Chubby Angel pattern allows for ½ inch seams. The seam allowance is
already figured into the pattern, so there is no need to adjust the
pattern or add any seam allowance to it. Lay out your pattern with
the arrows along the straight grain of fabric. Cut out as many pieces
as the pattern piece indicates and transfer all markings to your
fabric using a disappearing marker, transfer paper, or another method
if you prefer.
Tip: If you have a pattern that you use often, try cutting it
out of a strong quality paper towel. The paper towel is easily pinned
through onto your fabric and doesn't rip like paper does when pinned
through repeatedly for multiple uses.
Note: The Chubby Angel Doll pictured in this tutorial is made from
a simple white sheet. The flesh colored fabric is the same fabric,
tea dyed. If you intend to make your Chubby Angel doll as a gift, then felt is
a nice selection for your fabric.
How to "Tea Dye" Fabric
These instructions are for approximately ½ yard of fabric.
- Boil approximately one half gallon of water. Remove from heat and
add 2 family size (or 8 single serving size) regular (black tea) tea
bags to the water and let steep for 2 to 3 minutes.
Add your fabric to the pot and be sure the entire piece is submerged
in the tea.
Let the fabric soak in the tea for about 30 minutes.
Use more tea bags for darker color and less tea bags for lighter
color. You may also leave the fabric steep for a shorter time for
less intense color.
Remove the fabric from the tea and rinse in cold water. Hang, iron,
or machine dry.
Sewing the Chubby Angel Doll
When sewing your Chubby Angel, use ½ inch seams unless
otherwise specified. Lock all seams at the beginning and at the end
of each seam.
Feet: With right sides together, stitch front foot to back
foot, leaving open where indicated on pattern piece. Clip the curves
of the seam allowance after sewing. This prevents the bunching up of
too much fabric inside the piece after it is turned right side out.
Turn right side out. Stuff with Polyfil and baste the opening closed
by hand or machine. Repeat with other foot. Baste feet to the right
side of the bottom matching points A and points B. The feet will be
inside with the seam allowance edges even when you sew the bottom to
the body pieces.
Body: With right sides together, stitch the body front to the
body back at both sides from point C to point D.
Gathering: Do not lock stitching at the beginning or end of
your gathering stitches. Leave tails of thread approximately 5 inches
long at the beginning and at the end of your gathering stitches.
Starting at the center back, and using the longest stitch on your
machine, stitch ⅛ inch from the bottom edge all the way around
the body front and body back. Repeat ⅛ inch from the top (or
Attaching Body to Bottom: With right sides together, pin the
body to the bottom at 4 points: matching point C on bottom with side
seam on each side and matching center front of body with center front
of bottom and matching center back of body with center back of bottom.
Wrap the tail of the beginning of your gathering thread around your
index finger and hold it taut while sliding the fabric with your free
hand along the thread to gather between your pins. Gather half of the
circle holding one tail, drop that thread, then wrap the tail on the
other end around your finger and gather the remaining half of the
Note: Be sure that if you use the top thread tail at the
beginning to wrap around your finger that you use the top thread tail
at the end as well. When you have the entire circle evenly gathered
all around, pin between your original 4 pins all the way around.
Beginning at center back, stitch body to bottom.
Turn right side out through neck opening and remove feet basting.
Arms: With right sides together, sew arm front to arm back,
leaving open where indicated on pattern piece. Clip the curves of the
seam allowance after sewing. Clip seam allowance close inside thumb
~~~ A day hemmed in prayer, seldom unravels. ~~~
Turn right side out. Stuff with Polyfil and stitch the opening closed
by hand using a ladder stitch.
Repeat with other arm.
Attach hands together in front of body at point F in a praying
position with needle and strong thread.
Attach each arm to body at point E on side seams with needle and
strong thread, making sure thumbs are pointing upward in front of
Wings: With right sides together, stitch one wings piece to
the other, leaving open where indicated on pattern piece. Clip the
curves of the seam allowance after sewing.
Turn right side out. Top stitch each dotted line starting at the edge
of the wing and stitch up to the end of the line, then with your
needle down in the fabric, lift your presser foot and pivot the wing
180° then stitch back down over the first stitching to the edge
of the wing. Tie off the ends of the threads and draw them through
with a needle to the inside of the wing and cut. Stuff wings with
Polyfil, making sure to stuff in between the top stitched lines and
stitch the opening closed by hand using a ladder stitch.
Attach wings to center back, matching at points G and H with needle
and strong thread. You can use buttons instead of leaving the
stitching show, or attach a couple of little ribbons tied in bows to
hide the stitching.
~~~ Lord, grant me that I may see to stitch until my dying day. And
when my last short thread is clipped and scissors tucked away – The
work that I have done live on, that other folks may see – The
pleasure that I have known, Lord, in the skill you gave to me. ~~~
Face: This Chubby Angel doll face was done with an appliqué
technique. It's a little fussy to do since the pieces are so small.
You can always use buttons for eyes and fabric paint or Copic markers
for the mouth, or any other technique or design you wish for your
doll's face. Finish the face before sewing the head front to the head
Head: With right sides together, stitch head front to head
back, leaving open where indicated on pattern piece. Clip the curves
of the seam allowance after sewing.
Turn right side out.
Stuff the head with Polyfil and baste the opening closed by hand or
Hair: This is the fun part! Be sure to read through the Chubby Angel doll instructions below before beginning.
Curly Yarn Doll Hair
Using dowels close to the diameter of curl you desire, wrap yarn
snugly around the dowels. (The dowels used in this project are
disposable chop sticks!) To start off, wrap around the tail of the
yarn to anchor it, then continue wrapping to the end of the dowel.
Tip: It may be easier to hold the dowel between your thumb and
index finger with the yarn lightly under your thumb and then twist
the dowel with your other hand. At the end of the dowel, anchor the
end of the yarn under the last loop and pull it very snug.
Soak your yarn dowels in water until saturated. This may take an hour
or so. Note that you may have to anchor them down with a plate or
something because the wood and the air in the yarn tend to make them
Next, squeeze as much water out of them as you can, then blot them on
a towel. Place them on a clean cookie sheet or baking pan (you
don't want light colored yarn getting stained by anything) and bake
them at 200° Fahrenheit for about an hour, checking them every
15 minutes. You only want to dry the yarn, not melt it.
Once the yarn is completely dry, remove from the oven and let it cool
to room temperature, then loosen the end that was wrapped first and
unwrap by gently pulling it off the dowel.
Note: This project required 25 nine inch dowels or chop sticks.
Cut the tails off each end of the yarn where it was tucked under.
~~~ While stitching threads with gentle care, I pray this humble
little prayer, that with this work the world may see, the beauty in
Lay each length of curled yarn next to a ruler and adjust it to a
length of 12 inches.
Cut each length into three equal 4 inch lengths.
Do this to 15 of them. Starting about one half inch above the neck
and about one half inch in front of the side seam of the head, tack
each strand of curly yarn at its center point in a line around about
every one half inch to the other side seam. Start the next row about
one half inch above the last row and position each strand of curly
yarn in between the ones in the row below, so that you will be
tacking your strands in a pattern like polka dots.
As you get close to the top of the head, make your lengths of yarn
shorter for bangs. Fill in any spots that may seem too bare. Style
the hair any way you like. This angel has her hair up in a pony tail.
Stuff body with Polyfil, then using your fingers, form an opening in
the center of the neck opening of the body and push the neck down
into it. Gather the neck opening of the body to fit snugly around the
head, matching points D on each side. With a needle and thread,
stitch the head to the body all the way around. Tie a ribbon around
Now, back to the praying hands of your Chubby Angel doll... Tack them
together once more at the palms of her hands to bring them together
in more of a praying pose. You can include a halo for your Chubby
Angel, buttons, ribbons or anything else that you like.
