Nickelodeon welcomes creativity in fabric choices, but be mindful that all fabrics behave differently! We know, too, that different pile heights and different stretch ability might require slight pattern adjustments to fit your needs. This can be addressed in the approval process. Keep in mind that all fabric choices must meet industry standards for safety!

< H air's What to Do! There is a specific sewing sequence when sewing Dora’s head. This can be found directly on the patterns. Download from www.nicksource.com When using Bang pattern Version B, the bangs should be gathered for more volume. The hair shape should curve outward slightly towards the bottom.

Gather

Dora’s hair should have 2 soft peaks on the top of the head. The right side is higher than the left. The hair should be parted on the left-hand side. The bangs should have 2 slits above the eyes. The bangs also curve downward towards the sides of Dora’s face.

The bottom edge of Dora’s hair curves up slightly.

Do not stitch down the bottom inch of the bangs. The ends of the bangs should be loose.

Lo o se

To retain the shape of the hair, add this side panel pattern piece.

1/2” thick batting is stitched into the seam of the front face panel. This gives structure to the chin. © 2011 Viacom International Inc. All Rights Reserved. Nickelodeon, Dora the Explorer and all related titles, logos and characters are trademarks of Viacom International Inc.
