18-inch #Dolls #Gymnastics Bag #DIY w/free #sewing patterns @ ChellyWood.com

Monday you saw the previews. Tuesday and Wednesday I gave you the free patterns. Today we’re watching the DIY video that shows you how to make this gym bag / kit / duffle or duffel bag.

Gymnastics-themed patterns have been rising in popularity, so I thought I’d point out that this travel bag for 18-inch dolls like American Girl (AG), Madame Alexander, and others would be perfect for storing your gymnastics stuff!

So here you go! Let’s make a gym bag! Below you’ll find the two patterns mentioned in the video:

  • Pattern A for sewing a miniature travel bag for your 18-inch dolls (FREE)
  • Pattern B for sewing a miniature travel bag for your 18-inch dolls (also FREE)

I’d like to extend special thanks to Brian Garcia for his generosity in sharing this pattern with me and all my followers.

__________________

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.

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).

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. 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.

    • This pattern was given to me by a fellow Facebook miniaturist. He asked me to make his pattern digital and share it with my followers. I’m glad people (like you) are enjoying it! Special thanks to Brian who shared it!
