We’re on the set of Romeo and Juliet today, watching the filming of Act 4, Scene 3 from behind the scenes. Check out that little clapboard I made from iClipart! (I just shrunk it down and printed it on cardstock paper, using two brads and an extra piece of black scrapbook paper for a hinge.)
The doll who’s working the clapboard is my Traveler doll from Lammily.com. I highly recommend this doll, as she’s super cute, very realistic, and fairly articulated. If you’re worried that such a doll has no clothes to fit her, don’t fret! The Lammily company purchased patterns from me, and they’re available on this page. So sew your little hearts out, Lammily fans!
This week, on ChellyWood.com, I’m going to revisit the stage of Romeo and Juliet, showing you how to make the four-poster bed shown in the video above. I’ll also offer up my Renaissance chair pattern again, and let you see the video tutorial for making the renaissance chair. I’ll end the week with a review of how to make an easy-peasy round table that is sometimes pictured in Juliet’s house, in various scenes.
If you’re here for free sewing patterns, don’t worry; I’ll return to that concept shortly. I’m busy getting my patterns for Tall Barbie and her companions ready to post. Meanwhile, my free patterns can be found on this page, which is titled, “Doll Clothes Patterns” (see top menu).
Need help printing my patterns? This link will take you to a tutorial showing you how to download my free, printable patterns.
If you’re wondering why I make patterns and tutorials without charging a fee, please visit the “Chelly’s Books” page, and that should explain my general motivations. Overall, I love to sew, design doll clothes, and embroider, and I think it’s important to share my talents with the world, so others can learn to do what I do.
