Application October 9, 1944, Serial No. 557,816 3 Claims. (01. 46-151) 1 2 Our invention relates to- a cloth doll, and more particularly to a method of constructing a doll tion of the doll. The doll is formed by rolling about the pads or cores of soft material H, the two opposite side portions l2 and I3 of the blank, from an oblong piece of cloth having the direc tions and pattern for construction printed thereon. V inwardly toward the center of the blank and se 1 Another object of the invention is the provi sion of a simple method of constructing a doll of this character apparently complete with its outer garments simulated thereon. ‘ A further object of the invention is the pro vision of an oblong sheet of material which, when folded, knotted and tied, will form an apparently clothed doll that may be quickly and easily alter nated from the appearance of a male to a female. Still another object of the invention, is to provide simple means of securely holding the con- ‘ structed doll in shape by merely tying a string or ribbon around its neck portion and thus keep the various parts in formation semi-permanently. curing the same if desired by sewing as shown in Figure 3. The material after being folded as shown in Figure 3 is then formed with ‘a single knot l4 spaced from the upper end of the rolled blank a distance substantially two-?fths the length thereof anddividing the material into an upper portion l5 and a lower portion 16. The knot is tightened and forms the foundation for a doll’s head, as shown in Figure 5. When the knot is tightened, the ?at surface side of the upper material l5, above the knot I4, is presented forwardly and the lower portion of the material 16, below the knot 14, has the rolled portions hanging downwardly from the knot and presented forwardly. The next operation consists of forming the Other objects of the invention will be more 20 apparent as the following description is read on outer head surface, and simulating the hood l1, the drawing which forms a part of this speci blouse l8, and sleeves l9, as well as the arms 20, legs 2|, and skirt 22, of the doll, as shown in ?cation. . Figure 6, by folding the part l5 above the knot The invention is illustated in the accompany ing drawing wherein: 25 I 4 forwardly and pressing the inner surface of Figure 1 is a plan view of the blank from which the material between the folds, smoothly around the knot l4, to form the completed head and the doll is constructed; Figure 2, indicates the method of rolling a side face 23. The folded portion of the upper material portion of the blank over a soft, pliable support l5, above the knot 14, now also forms the hood ing material in the ?rst step of forming the 30 l1, sleeves l9 and arms 20, and the blouse [8, while the lower portion N5 of the folded material doll; Figure 3 shows the second step with both side below the knot M, (or head), forms the legs 2|, and the skirt 22. portions folded over the supporting material; The next operation consists of tying a string Figure 4, represents the third step which con or ribbon 24, tightly around the neck portion of sists of tying a knot in the rolled material; Figure 5, shows the knot tightened; the doll, directly under the knot or head [4, of the now constructed doll to form the head 23, Figure 6, shows the formation of the simulated clothing, the top portion being folded forwardly the hood I1, the sleeves l9 and the arms 2!), and the blouse l8, and allowing the feet 21 over the knot which forms the head, while the and the skirt 22 to hang downwardly below the lower portion of the material is allowed to hang blouse l l, as shown in Figure 7. downwardly to form the legs; The completed construction is thus performed, Figure 7, shows the method of securing the parts as now formed, which consists of tying a string or ribbon under the knot to form a neck, directly above the shoulders; Figure 8 is a front view of the completed doll, clothed, when a male doll is desired; Figure 9, is a front view of the completed doll, the lower portion of the material forming the being twisted just below the knot to transform ) the material into a simulation of a skirt and as indicated in Figure 8, and forms a male doll having legs 25, formed by the rolled portions of 45 the lower portion of material It. Referring to Figure 9, it will be seen that by twisting the folded edges of the lower portion of the material, directly under the knot or head, the flat portion between the rolls of the lower portion of the material is brought around‘ forwardly into front view, alternating from its back view, to form a simulation of a skirt 22, instead of legs, for a female doll. The head may be then painted or printed or blank which may have directions printed thereon giving instructions to be followed during forma 55 marked to represent such facial features as eyes, form a female doll. Referring to Figure l, I!) designates the cloth 2,406,994 3 nose and mouth, while markings can be made as desired to represent hair under the hood, and further marks on the clothing may be resorted to, if desired, to create dress design and color, while the pulling downwardly of the inner portion of the ends of sleeves and legs, will present simula tion of hands and feet. Although various forms of the invention have been shown and described, it will be apparent to portion in its folded condition and provide a necktie for the doll. 2. A cloth doll comprising a rectangular blank of cloth rolled forwardly from opposite side edges towards the center of the blank, the rolled blank being knotted in spaced relation to its upper end to form a head, the portion of the rolled material above the knot being partially unrolled and folded forwardly and downwardly with its un~ those skilled in the art that various modi?cations 10 rolled portion covering the knot and upper end may be made, without departing from the scope of the appended claims. Having thus described the invention, what is of the portion of the rolled blank below the knot and its rolled portions at opposite sides of the knot and the said covered upper end of the said claimed is: lower portion of the rolled blank forming a face 1. A doll of the character described comprising 15 for the head, hood, a blouse, and arms and sleeves, a rectangular blank of fabric rolled forwardly from opposite side edges towards the center of the blank over elongated cores of soft material and knotted in spaced relation to its upper end to and a ribbon tied about the doll below the knot to secure the said upper portion in its folded condition and de?ne a neck for the doll and provide rolled upper and lower portions divided 20 provide a necktie. 3. A cloth doll comprising a rectangular blank by the knot ,the said upper portion being partially of fabric rolled forwardly from opposite side edges unrolled and folded forwardly and downwardly to dispose its unrolled portion in covering rela tion to the knot and the upper end of the said lower portion to provide a head of the covered 25 towards its center over cores of soft material, the rolled blank being tied in spaced relation to its upper end and its upper portion folded for wardly and downwardly to form a head and a knot and a blouse of the covered upper end of blouse and a hood and arms, and a ribbon tied about the folded blank at the bottom of the knot to de?ne a neck and set off the hood from the said lower portion, the rolls of the saidupper portion being disposed at opposite sides of the head and blouse to provide a hood for the head and arms for the blouse, and a ribbon tied about 30 the doll under the head to secure the said upper the arms.
