As you know, I’m running a contest for a free ninja costume this month. The costume doesn’t come with the ninja sword shown in my videos; however I’ve actually got a pattern and tutorials that show you how to make your own miniature swords, sword belts, and sheaths.
These patterns and tutorials were created as part of my Romeo and Juliet costume sets. I designed them for the dolls playing Romeo, Tybalt, Benvolio, and others. So here are the links you would need to make the Romeo and Juliet swords and their accompanying accessories, if you’d like to make your own sword to go with the ninja costume:
- Here’s the link to the tutorial for making a sword.
- Here’s the link to the tutorial for making a belt and sheath.
- Here’s a link to the pattern for the belt and sheath.
These tutorials and patterns are all my own creations, so as always, please show your appreciation by liking, linking, pinning, posting, tweeting, etc… If you have any trouble downloading or need some sewing advice, feel free to “Submit a Question” and I’ll do whatever I can to help.
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 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. These designs use a scant 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. 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.
In case you haven’t heard, I’ve 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 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!
