If you love to sew, and you love fairy tale characters, this “Sleepy Dragon Pincushion” is just what you need for your sewing table! Both patterns for this tutorial are free to download and print, right here on ChellyWood.com. This is a link to the first pattern, and here’s a link to the second pattern you’ll need.
Don’t forget that Mother’s Day is this Sunday. If you’re worried you won’t have time to make this pincushion for your mom, take a look at my Pinterest board, which is filled with pincushion ideas and free patterns.
If you came here looking for free doll clothes patterns, please visit my free patterns page. But if you still can’t find what you want there, feel free to submit a question to me directly. Remember that you need to enlarge my patterns to fit an American-sized sheet of printer paper (8.5 x 11 inches or 216 x 279 mm), without margins, in order to create something similar to what I’ve shown you in my videos.
Need help printing my patterns? This link will take you to a tutorial showing you how to download my free, printable patterns.
I’ve also got a series of tutorials for the beginning sewists on my YouTube channel. It includes video tutorials showing you how to do a basic straight stitch when sewing by hand, how to use the whipstitch to hem a garment, how to sew on snaps, and even how to design your own doll clothes patterns, just like I do!
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.
I’ve also designed some cute patterns for the Lammily doll company. Anyone who wants to show support of my website and its free patterns can do so by liking, pinning, or tweeting about my posts, but it’s really great, too, if you could purchase my patterns from Lammily LLC (if you happen to own a Lammily doll), as that helps the Lammily folks recognize that my pattern-making skills are appreciated.
