This tutorial has been the #1 sewing tutorial on my YouTube channel for quite some time. In fact, in December of 2015, I did a countdown of the most popular sewing tutorials on my channel, and the doll boots video won, hands down.
So you’re probably wondering why this tutorial is so popular? I’m wondering the same thing! Maybe it’s the simplicity of the pattern and instructions that makes it #1. Feel free to leave your thoughts on this, in the comments.
And since I posted the tutorial, I might as well post the pattern too. Here’s a link to the pattern I use to make these boots.
Remember that you need to enlarge my patterns to fit an American-sized sheet of printer paper (8.5 x 11 inches or 216 x 279 mm), without margins, before printing. Feel free to pin, like, or tweet about my free patterns and tutorials. If you can’t find a specific pattern, just submit a question to me directly.
Need help printing my patterns? This link will take you to a tutorial showing you how to download my free, printable patterns.
I’ve also got a 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, for those who are new to design and alterations.
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. Overall, I love to sew, design doll clothes, and embroider, and I think it’s important to share my talents with the world, so others can learn to do what I do.
And in case you haven’t heard, I have also designed commercial patterns for Lammily LLC. They have some new dolls coming out soon, so you might want to visit the Lammily website to see what they’ve got going on.
