It may seem like this is a re-post, but it’s actually not. I have yet to post a single page with links to the patterns and tutorials needed to make the outfit shown on my 12-inch baby doll above. (This “whole outfit” post will become a link page from the Gallery Page.)
If you navigated here from my Gallery Page, these are the patterns and tutorials you’ll need to create the rickrack baby doll’s outfit that you see in the photo:

I have a few more outfits which I’ve designed in the past that also need to be posted on the Gallery Page still, so next week you may see some of those as well as the Barbie summer top that was shown in this week’s tutorial video for Barbie pants.
Meanwhile, please remember to like, pin, reblog, and tweet about my doll clothes patterns and tutorials. The more visitors I get to ChellyWood.com, the more pocket money I make for buying new supplies for my designs! (I don’t make a lot of money, but the ads on my site put a little hobby money in my pockets.) So please do your part to share my stuff on social media!
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.
