**Please Note Before Purchasing Patterns - I hve been been battling breast and lung cancer since the last of 2013.  Naturally, I have a lot of downs with the heavy chemo and radiation treatments that I've had and am now having the New Immunotherapy (Opdivo) that just been approved by FDA.  I'm asking that you please bear with me in getting your patterns to you in a timely manner as my body can't always do what my mind says it should (my mind doesn't always work right either) and it may take me added time to get your patterns either mailed to you or sent to you as e-Patterns in an email.  I would ask that if you want to order the e-Patterns that you first check out my Etsy site at www.Etsy.com/shop/CatandTheFiddle and order these patterns at this site as they are instantly downloadable after your payment and don't need me to do anything at all.  Not all of my patterns are converted to e-Patterns yet but I'm in the process of doing this when my health permits.  Hopefully, soon I'll have them all converted and transferred to Etsy or Craftsy and will do away with my paper patterns altogether except through my wholesale distributors.  Thanks to all of you who have been so patient and understanding during this awful time of my life and for all the prayers and support that you've shown me.  ~  (((((HUGS))))) Gini

Welcome to Cat and the Fiddle Designs!

I'm so very glad that you stopped by to visit my little corner of Heaven and so hope that you'll enjoy your stay.

I'm Gini Simpson and I'm the owner/designer of all the treasures you're sure to find on the following pages. I've been making and selling dolls now for several years but finally started designing my own pattern line of dolls in 2003 when it became necessary for me to give up the craft shows and stay home. What fun I'm now having with all of my creations!

*****EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY - THERE WILL BE NO SELLING OF MY PATTERNS TO SOUTH AMERICA (MAINLY BRAZIL).  ANY PAYMENTS RECEIVED THRU PAYPAL WILL BE REFUNDED MINUS $2.00 HANDLING FEE.  To my faithful and loyal customers in Brazil, I'm so sorry to have to take these steps but unfortunately the actions of a few affects all. 

***NEW - If you don't know how to sew or have no time to sew - no problem.  I now have a list of dollmakers 4 hire listed on my site that would be tickled pink to make up that special doll for you.  At the top of this page is a clickable link "Dollmakers 4 Hire" - just click on that link and you'll be taken to the page for the dollmakers' names and contact information.

On the following pages you're bound to find just the "right thing" that you've been searching for - original primitive cloth doll patterns including but not limited to raggedies, mammies, bunnies, cats, snowmen, Americana, angels, etc. I offer paper patterns for these dolls as well as ePatterns on some. I'm constantly having my paper patterns converted into ePatterns so please keep checking back for the latest ePatterns. Also, before you order from me for the first time, please be sure to read the Order Info Page where you'll find several tips on using the order buttons for the paper and ePatterns that will make your ordering run so much smoother (especially for ordering the ePatterns!).

Please be sure to join my mailing list found at the bottom of this page so you'll be sure to be notified of all new patterns & finished dolls added as well as all sales and specials that I'll be having.
