Super EASY #Doll #Craft Vest Made of #Felt

It has been a while since I posted another “Easy Sew Projects for Kids” video. This vest is a super-easy, four step item of clothing to make, as the video above shows. On my easy-to-hard scale, I would definitely give it only one flower:

Visit ChellyWood.com for free, printable sewing patterns for dolls of many shapes and sizes. Image shows a pattern of small pink flowers. One flower = super easy difficulty; two flowers = kind-of easy difficulty; three flowers = about average difficulty; four flowers = somewhat advanced level of difficulty; five flowers = very advanced level of difficulty. This chart is used to determine how hard a sewing project will be on ChellyWood.com, where free doll clothes patterns are posted nearly every week, along with sewing tutorials.

To review my difficulty scale, take a look back at this blog post. (You’ll want to scroll down to read the detailed description of each category.)

Tomorrow I’m going to re-post some of my older patterns with the difficulty scale added (along with my measurement tool and some other goodies). Back when I first started blogging, I just offered hand-drawn patterns with no careful instructions or analysis. Nowadays I have a lot more to offer, including well-made tutorials and detailed instructions for making each pattern.

But those older patterns kind of a need a facelift! So that’s what my focus will be later this week.

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.

Need help printing my patterns? This link offers a tutorial showing you how to download and print my FREE patterns using Google Docs. (For the older print-a-pattern tutorial, which uses Microsoft Word, click here.)

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 (4 mm to be exact).

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. My patterns are now available through “Creative Commons Attribution.” This means that I created my patterns (and therefore I own rights to them), but I’m willing to share them with everyone who will tell people about my website.

Here are some helpful ways to tell the world about my patterns:

Are you new to sewing? I’ve 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.

In case you haven’t heard, I have actually designed some 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.
