I posted this doll bonnet pattern yesterday, but for easy-access, here’s the link again:
It’s easy to print this pattern using the instructions found in my “How to Print Patterns” video, although I do need to update that video, as we no longer use the Old Pattern Page as much as we do the Gallery these days.
Please note: you must enlarge my patterns to fit a full-sized piece of American computer paper (8.5 x 11 inches or 216 x 279 mm) without margins, before printing. My designs normally use a 1/4 inch seam with my patterns, but when working with 8″ dolls, I use a 1/8 inch seam because they’re tinier.
As it says in the heading, this bonnet pattern fits my Momoko™ doll, as her head is pretty small, but it also fits the Breyer® rider dolls, World of Love™ dolls from Hasbro®, and likely any doll in the 8″ range, apart from those with extra-large heads (I’m thinking of Bratz® dolls, which are likely too big for this pattern).
If you’re searching for a specific 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 that are designed to help you make the outfit or item pictured there.
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, and/or tweeting about them (yes, you have my permission). 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.
In case you haven’t heard, I’ve 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 also have 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!
