I posted each of these projects as separate blog posts in November, but I wanted to make it possible to access all of the patterns and tutorials for making each project, right here, on this one single page. That way, people will have easy access to all of these Christmas gift DIY projects in one spot. So here’s everything you need to make them:
Instagram Pillow Project

- Free printable sewing pattern 2 for Instagram pillow
- Free video tutorial showing how to make Instagram pillow

Want an easy-to-print PDF of this dragon pincushion pattern? You can find that in my Teachers Pay Teachers store, with lesson plans for teaching “How to Make a Pincushion” for home economics and sewing class teachers. It offers PDF patterns for a plush Minecraft “pincushion” or toy, along with pincushion patterns for this dragon pincushion and a Dutch windmill pincushion project. All of these patterns can be printed, along with the lesson plans and student instructions, plus links to the tutorial videos, with the purchase of a 16 page PDF document for $2.99 right here.

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. It’s always friendly and kind to show your appreciation for my free patterns and tutorials by liking them on Facebook, pinning them on Pinterest (yes, you have my permission), and/or tweeting about them. You’re also welcome to add any of my YouTube channel‘s videos to your playlists. Please visit those links for easy access to my patterns, tutorials, and blog posts.
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).
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!
