Coraline Sackdoll

yellow crochet doll with blue hair button eyes

Finally... just finished her today. My friend had asked me to make her a Coraline as a Christmas gift and here it is Easter Monday, only 4 months late but you know what they say!! Better late than never

 Her clothes don't come off but that's a working zipper

Yes, those are some buttons in there. Seemed like the right thing to do.
Oh, and if you don't know who Coraline is, watch the Official Coraline Trailer Awesome movie

 I used parts of The Golden Jelly Bean's sackboy pattern as starting point and made my own adjustments. Coraline is just over 10 inches tall.

Hi. I'm Coraline. Coraline Jones
  "Makin' up a song about Coraline. She's a peach, she's a doll, she's a pal of mine. She's as cute as a button in the eyes of everyone who's ever laid their eyes on Coraline. When she comes around exploring, Mom and I will never ever make it boring,  Our eyes will be on Coraline!"

I'm going to miss you Coraline but it's time now to go see your "Other Mother"



  1. Will you please share how you fixed this... its beautiful my girl loves her too

  2. hi there, sorry it's been 6 years since I made her, I wouldn't remember now where I modified the pattern but I did link (in the post) to the original sackboy pattern I used as the base of it. Most of it is the same.
