The faces are printed on 100% cotton poplin. But when it comes to the body, you can use many fabrics. Use one color for the body or mix and match colors and patterns for a fun look. Some fabrics to use for the body include quilting cottons, muslin, flannel, ultrasuede and light vinyl.
Matching the skin tone
The easiest way to find coordinating fabrics is to take the faces into a fabric store to compare fabric colors and textures. If you are using the free cloth doll pattern, the head and neck are separate pieces. This gives you a lot more freedom when matching skin tones or using patterned fabric for the neck and bodice.
