Here’s the tutorial I promised. It shows how to make the Halloween kitty cat mask that goes with the cat costume I posted on Monday and last Thursday. This is a relatively easy tutorial to follow, because a lot of the steps can be done with glue instead of a needle and thread.
Please note that the free pattern was posted yesterday.
As you may recall, there’s a contest going on right now. If you want to win my handmade cat costume for fashion dolls, you must visit my friend Angela’s fantastic OOAK Facebook page. (Click that link to get there.) She specializes in doll makeovers.
Need help printing my patterns? This link will take you to a tutorial showing you how to download my free, printable patterns.
Please note: you must enlarge the pattern to fit a full-sized piece of American computer paper (8.5 x 11 inches or 216 x 279 mm) before printing. My designs use a 1/4 inch seam (standard for fashion doll sewing projects).
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.
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.
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!
