This is actually a preview for the Petite Barbie™/Skipper™/Momoko Doll™ pattern and tutorial that I’ll be posting next week. If you watch this video, take a look at the pretty green/teal sundress that Petite Barbie™ (called “Tabitha” in the video) is wearing. Doesn’t it look lovely on her? And it’s super easy to make!
In fact, this will be another “Easy Sew” project, and as usual, the pattern and tutorial will both be free.
The coolest part of this blog post is that I actually did take my dolls with me to Paris! I took pictures of them at the Metro, in front of the Eiffel Tower, at Sacre Coeur Cathedral, and at all of the other lovely places that Paris has to offer. It was really neat to take photos of my dolls on this trip, because the public was actually excited to watch me photograph them. I even had people ask if they could take pictures of me, while I took pictures of dolls! Crazy, huh?
It’s my hope that little girls will see my “Adventures in Paris” series and be inspired to play with their own dolls in a similar way. So if you know a little girl who might enjoy watching “Adventures in Paris,” please share this video with her family. As always, pin, like, or tweet about my videos any time.
If you haven’t seen it yet, you might want to check out my new Gallery Page, where you can pick an outfit for a doll, click on that picture, and the link in the caption will take you to all the free, printable patterns and free tutorials you’ll need to make that outfit.
If you’re wondering why I make patterns and videos without charging a fee, please visit the “Chelly’s Books” page, and that should explain my general motivations.
And in case you haven’t heard, I have also designed commercial patterns for Lammily LLC. They have some new dolls in their line, including a new male doll, so you might want to visit the Lammily website to see what they’ve got going on.
