Butter Tub doll

Question

Hi All!

 

I am trying to find a pattern for a doll that wore a cute ruffly dress that was attached by a butter tub to hold treasures in. I got one of these when I was a young girl back in the early 80s. I thought about that doll (which I sadly no longer have) the other day and thought that it would be a great idea to make for a gift. I have done some online searching but have had no luck as of yet. If anyone has or knows where I could locate such a pattern, that would be wonderful. Any help is welcome. :)

 

Many thanks!

 

Elizabeth

I did one of thes dolls not to long ago. I too recieved one as a child and wanted to make one for each of my three girls. I couldn not find a pattern so I just did it. I have notes around here some where. If you wnat me to I will look for them and let you know if I can make a pattern up. I still need to make a hat for her but I ran out of that color yarn.

Hi Dorothy,

 

Your doll is very adoreable. If you would like to post your pattern, that would be fabulous. I am glad to know that there is someone out there that knows what I was talking about. :) To be honest, I was not even sure what to call the doll. Butter tub seemed the easiest - lol.

 

I look forward to seeing your patten when you post it. I am not in too big of a hurry - Christmas is still a few days away - lol. :)

 

Many thanks! :cheer

I used mine to put PJ's in too.. I had one when I was little and couldn't find a pattern and after months of searching I just made one up. I am still looking for my notes as my kids have a way of taking off with things :blush!

I can probably make the skirt and dress.. Im just confused on the doll part. I can't remember if the doll was half a doll? and just stuck inside a whole in the "tub" ? I don't remember lol
