This tutorial goes with the two free, printable patterns, which I posted just yesterday. But in case you’re looking at this post through another online venue, and/or you’re not sure how to access the patterns for making this adorable little dragon pincushion, let me make it super easy for you! Here are the links to the patterns you’ll need, if you want to make this pincushion for a Christmas gift:
- Here’s the link to pattern 1 for the dragon pincushion.
- Here’s the link to pattern 2 for the dragon pincushion.
Now you have everything you need to make this dragon pincushion. He’d be cute in Christmas colors of red and green, wouldn’t he?
If you’re searching for a different pattern or tutorial, have a look at my 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!
