#Dolls’ #Harvest Apron #Sewing Pattern @ ChellyWood.com

This document is a free printable sewing pattern for an apron that will fit most 11.5 inch dolls. The apron can be used as a pinafore, as it does wrap around a doll's waist and tie at the back, but the straps of the apron are fixed in place, much like a full-dress pinafore. This apron has functional pockets and is also available to make as a reversible apron. It will fit dolls in the size range of Barbies, Liv Dolls, Momoko dolls, Queens of Africa, Francie, Midge, and many similar-sized fashion dolls. This apron comes with a free tutorial showing you how to make it as a pinafore to be worn over our "harvest" style sunflower dress. Visit ChellyWood.com to get the free tutorial videos and the pattern for the dress as well.

Please visit ChellyWood.com for FREE printable sewing patterns to fit dolls of many shapes and sizes.

This is the pattern for the “harvest apron” project that I showed in yesterday’s preview photos. It’s the same pattern that we used to make the reversible hairdresser’s apron (published here on ChellyWood.com in July of 2017).

However in the latest project, I’ll be using this pattern as a one-sided apron–almost more of a pinafore–over the top of my sunflower dress for 11.5-inch fashion dolls (like Barbie, Disney Princess fashion dolls, Queens of Africa dolls, and similar-sized dolls).

You’ll probably find it easiest to save and download this apron pattern using this link:

Tomorrow I’ll be posting the latest tutorial, showing you how to use this pattern to create the yellow apron shown in yesterday’s preview. I hope to see you then!

Please note:

It has recently come to my attention that my older patterns and projects no longer appear on my Gallery Page. Two examples are the hairdresser apron and smock project and the Monster High/Ever After High pants patterns. I’ve contacted WordPress, my blog hosting company, and they have suggested that I may have over-run my limit for images in a single gallery. They’ve suggested I re-design my website to include multiple gallery pages.

So when I get a little vacation time (maybe during my Thanksgiving or Christmas holiday break November-December), I plan to take the time to re-organize my website. Some links may be lost in the redesigning, so if there are patterns you really want to use, I suggest downloading them before this website remodel takes place.

Of course, if you ever have difficulty locating a pattern or tutorial on my website, feel free to contact me using my Submit a Question form. I’d be happy to email you with attachments or links to the pages you’re seeking. Also, I now have a mailing address, which can be found on my “About the Author” page as well as on this recent blog post.

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.

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 and tutorials:

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.
