Doll's Muff This will require three yards of round web. Sew the web into a rectangular piece three inches wide and five inches long. Join the three-inch ends together and draw up the ends a little to form the muff. Finish with cord to go around the neck. Collarette Round web five yards. Measure the doll's neck for collar.
