Royal Voluntary Service- 80th Anniversary-Volunteer Dolls
I am delighted to be working with LoveKnitting to celebrate Royal Voluntary Service’s 80th anniversary. Founded in 1938 as the Women’s Voluntary Service, to help civilians during WW2, Royal Voluntary Service is one of the largest volunteering organisations in Britain today, helping older people live happy and healthier lives and supporting the NHS.
To mark the 80th anniversary and help raise funds, I have designed Bitsy Baby volunteer dolls, which are easy to make. The bodies and heads are knitted in one piece, and after seaming and stuffing the legs are created by sewing a seam through from front to back. The arms, clothes and numerals are knitted separately and are sewn on when making the dolls.
You can sell your creations to raise vital funds for the charity.
