For at least a year now, I’ve been receiving requests via my Submit a Question form, for easy-peasy patterns and tutorials that even little kids can make. Here we have the first in a series of Easy-Sew patterns with tutorials, showing the absolute beginners how to make doll clothes. I’ll post the tutorial tomorrow.
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, before printing. Feel free to pin,like, or tweet about my free patterns and tutorials. If you can’t find a specific pattern, just submit a question to me directly.
Need help printing my patterns? This link will take you to a tutorial showing you how to download my free, printable patterns.
As I post these Easy-Sew tutorials, each one will be added to my playlist of tutorials for the beginning sewists on my YouTube channel. That list already 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, for those who are new to design and alterations.
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.
And in case you haven’t heard, I have also designed commercial patterns for Lammily LLC. They have some new dolls coming out soon, so you might want to visit the Lammily website to see what they’ve got going on.
