This is a  tutorial / Digital PDF download to create a 36 cm/ 14" weighted bunting style baby doll and outfit for your doll.

The Heavy Baby doll, sometimes known as Millet baby or Sensory baby is a weighted doll filled with organic, lavender-scented millet and wool and is designed not only to have weight like a real baby but to also to provide a calming and therapeutic effect when held on a lap.

This tutorial is suitable also for those who have never made a doll before, but some sewing experience is required.
