Here’s a re-post of pattern #1 for my fashion doll Halloween costume set. I’ve been getting requests to include a measurement gauge; therefore you’ll find this pattern, along with some of the other new patterns, have a small measurement tool on the patterns themselves. This is designed to help you determine whether or not you’ve printed my patterns to the right scale.
It also helps to watch my tutorial video, showing how to download and print my free patterns.
I’m re-posting this pattern because it was last posted at the start of the month, and you’ll need it to make the candy basket for tomorrow’s tutorial.
In addition to ChellyWood.com, I also run a “Secret Santa” blog, where you can find poems and gift box ideas for Secret Santa or Silly Santa. I’m simultaneously posting this jack-o-lantern pattern and tutorial on my Secret Santa blog because it makes a fantastic little gift for an office pal or Secret Santa. Just fill it with M&M’s or Reeses Pieces and place it on someone’s desk as a friendly holiday surprise!
If you’re searching for a different pattern, have a look at the Gallery Page. That’s the easiest way to search through all of my patterns to find what you want. Each image on the Gallery Page takes you to links for patterns and tutorials.
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 gather fabric, 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!
