Here’s my free printable pattern for baby doll nappy covers or bloomers. These are great for toddlers who are learning to use the toilet for the first time. You can make a bunch of undies for your toddler’s dolls and have him/her practice using the doll to emulate toilet training. It’s a great way to introduce the idea of using a toilet!
When my best friend’s granddaughter was potty training, I made her a couple of pairs of dolly undies, and it really made the toilet training experience fun for her.
For your convenience, here’s a link to the pattern’s individual page:
From there it’s easy to print, following the guidelines in my “How to Print Patterns” video tutorial.
On a side note, this same pattern can be used to make the shorts pictured in Monday’s post. We’ll look at that option a little later on.
Tomorrow I’m planning to post the video tutorial for sewing these cute baby doll bloomers.
Some of my followers have wondered what motivates me to give my patterns away for free.
First of all, I’m a librarian by trade. Librarians love free stuff! We believe that the more a person knows, the more enriched their life will be. So it may sound kind of crazy, but I want ChellyWood.com to become a sort of library of free patterns that help people learn to sew doll clothes.
If you’d like to learn more about my motives, feel free to visit my Chelly’s Books page.
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).
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:
- You can pin them on Pinterest.
- You can like them on Facebook.
- You can tweet about them.
- Use any other form of social media that appeals to you!
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.
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.
