hospital buddies

Remember Lucy's hospital doll she named Birdie? Well, we had a service project with the children's group at church a couple weeks ago and made a bunch of dolls just like Birdie to donate to Primary Children's Medical Center. They will go to future patients there and hopefully bring the same amount of love and comfort Birdie brought to Lucy. At our activity, we had 12 kids who stuffed, stitched, hemmed and dressed a total of 34 dolls! Patterns for dolls and robes can be found here: Doll A, Doll B, Robe A, Robe B. Download all four.

They turned out so cute and what a neat project for the primary. Perfect "Friend" article for sure... be sure to send something in! Love it!

Thanks for this great post! Our church group is making dolls for a local hospital also. I was wondering if I could use your photo as part of our advertising.

Thank you for posting the pattern. My husband is having a hard time with this deployment, and we are making him "kid" dolls that they are going to color and send to Daddy :) I immediately thought of this pattern, but could not locate it in my stash. So what a blessing to be able to find it on my first search!!! Thank You again!
