HOW TO GET INVOLVED

The Bábóg Project aims to gather 6000 dolls. One for each of the estimated number of babies said to have died in Ireland’s former Mother and Baby Homes.

You can make the dolls in any way you choose. The only requirement is that they fit into the palm of your hand. These are some patterns that have been made for The Bábóg Project or that we have the authors blessing to use and share.

A simple video tutorial

giving easy to follow step by step instructions showing how to knit a tiny doll for the Bábóg Project.
