FREE #Pattern for a #Dolls shirt @ ChellyWood.com #FREEstuff

Image is a printable sewing pattern for a doll's felt shirt. Header reads "EASY-Sew Felt Doll Shirt Pattern" and the subheading reads "One size fits many." At the bottom of the page it says, "Bodice worn as a shirt fits dolls of many shapes and sizes." Photos show the following dolls wearing the sleeveless felt shirt with simple, easy-to-sew darts: Curvy Barbie, Petite Barbie, Tall Barbie (from the Fashionista line), a Spin Master Liv Doll, a Lammily Doll, a Momoko Doll, Skipper, and even a 17" Barbie doll (stands 17 inches tall). All of these dolls are shown wearing the shirt after it has been sewn. The website, ChellyWood.com is offered on the pattern itself for video tutorials that show exactly how to piece this pattern together. A "Creative Commons Attribution" mark appears on the pattern itself, along with a difficulty level stated as "kind of easy."

This is the pattern we’ll be using to make this week’s project. Look back at yesterday’s post to see how the final product will look.

For my regular followers, this pattern may look familiar to you. I’ve issued this pattern before, but my older patterns lacked the Creative Commons Attribution mark and the measurement tool. So I’m issuing this older pattern again with some updates.

Also, this week I’ll be posting a tutorial showing how to add bias tape to this shirt for a new look. Bias tape can be used to prevent the felt from fraying too, which is always a plus when you plan to give your doll clothes projects to small children.

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.) To review my difficulty scale (demonstrating how hard or easy a pattern is by the number of flowers displayed), take a look back at this blog post.

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.

If your question wasn’t answered here, feel free to submit a question. I’m always happy to help my followers find what they need, so they, too, can make amazing doll clothes and crafts!
