Happy Halloween everyone!
I’m trying to keep all of my patterns and tutorials organized by posting an image like this once in a while, with links to everything you need to create the outfits shown in the image. Then, over the weekend or in the week that follows, I create a link from the Gallery Page to a page like this one.
The idea is to create a simplified method of finding what you want on my website. I’m still not done creating posts like this for all the patterns I’ve created. If you want to find the patterns and tutorials for any outfit that doesn’t appear on my Gallery Page, I recommend using the Old Pattern Page, which is less organized but still serviceable.
Anyway, here are links to all the patterns and tutorials you will need, in order to make the Halloween costumes pictured above:
- Pattern for mask, tail, mittens, and pumpkin candy bucket
- Tutorial showing how to make the mask
- Tutorial showing how to make the mittens and tail
- Tutorial showing how to make the pumpkin candy bucket
- Pattern for fashion doll bodysuit
- Tutorial showing how to make the fashion doll bodysuit
- Tutorial showing how to make doll tights
- Pattern for ghost costume to fit smaller dolls (Chelsea® dolls, Polly Pocket®, and similar-sized dolls)
- Tutorial showing how to make the ghost costume for very small dolls
If you’re looking for easy tutorials (esp. for those who’ve just started to sew), check out my playlist 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. But it also has some easy sewing tutorials with free printable patterns too.
Need help printing my patterns? This link will take you to a tutorial showing you how to download my free, printable patterns.
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.
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.
