Chelly Wood Out of the Office / #Sewing Room

The image shows the OOAK Liv Doll "Chelly Wood" at her computer in her tiny dolly diorama office. Behind her is a painting of ballerinas by Degas. The overlay says, Fan Mail and offers the at symbol followed by the URL, a website where there are hundreds of free, printable sewing patterns for doll clothes to fit dolls of many shapes and sizes. This is the YouTube header for what one might call "Barbie fan mail opening" or stop motion fan mail reading. It's a stop motion video of the Chelly Wood doll discussing her fan mail, reading it out loud, and showing a video of Barbie dolls modeling the hand-made dresses that one of Chelly Wood's fans created using Chelly Wood's own free doll clothes patterns (printable on the website).

Sorry everyone, but I’m about to take a wee little family vacation. I do get fan mail every day or so, and that’s why I thought I’d give everyone a heads up about my absence.

To keep you entertained while I’m away, I’m going to re-post the video tutorials that are mentioned most often in my YouTube videos.

Next Thursday, though, I’ll post something brand new to keep it lively here at

Normally, I like to answer my Submit a Question forms before three days have passed; however while I’m on vacation, your Submit a Question requests will be placed in a sort of “holding bin” until I return. I’ll answer questions in the order in which I received them, when I get back.

Want to follow my vacation online? I’ll likely post my sewing adventures on my Instagram account. You may have to weed through pics of me and my two teenage girls sightseeing, but I’ll probably post updates of the sewing and pattern drafting projects I have waiting in the wings as well.

Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy a few sewing adventures on your own!
