A doll stand gives you a chance to take photos of your doll without holding her up with your hands. But how do you keep the stand out of the picture? This video shows you what I do to hide the doll stands in my videos and doll photography.
This video tutorial has been remarkably popular on my YouTube channel, and yet its such a simple concept! When you watch it, you’ll say, “Whoa! That is easy! Why didn’t I think of that?
If you’re wondering where to buy doll stands, it’s easy enough to find them at second-hand stores (watch for them wherever porcelain dolls are displayed), but they’re also relatively inexpensive on eBay and Amazon.
Not what you’re looking for? My Gallery Page is 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.
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!
