Here’s the first of my two tea towel topper patterns. Tomorrow I’ll post Pattern 2, and on Friday, I’ll post the tutorial showing you exactly how to make these.
I have to say, these are really pretty easy to make, as gift-worthy crafts go.
However, for those of you who are desperately missing my doll clothes patterns (the thing that ChellyWood.com is famous for), please visit my Gallery Page and peruse the doll clothes displayed there. 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. This particular design (the tea towel topper) uses a 5/8″ seam.
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!
