How to sew snaps… How to use bias tape… How to buy fabric…

For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been sharing these topics, but where did all of these tutorial videos come from? Perhaps you’ve never noticed before that there’s a category on the menu at ChellyWood.com called, “Helpful Tips.”

This “Helpful Tips” page is designed to help you find videos that will improve your sewing game, especially when it comes to sewing doll clothes.

The “Helpful Tips” page includes a guide for reading the ChellyWood.com Difficulty Scale as well:

One flower = super easy difficulty; two flowers = kind-of easy difficulty; three flowers = about average difficulty; four flowers = somewhat advanced level of difficulty; five flowers = very advanced level of difficulty. This chart is used to determine how hard a sewing project will be on ChellyWood.com, where free doll clothes patterns are posted nearly every week, along with sewing tutorials.

Have you ever noticed those flowers on my patterns? The number of flowers coincides with how difficult the project will be. I think most people understand that.

But on the “Helpful Tips” page you can actually see a breakdown of which skills you will need, in order to complete a three-flower project or a four-flower project. For example, if a garment will require a zipper, it’s considered “Somewhat Advanced,” but if it uses snaps, it’s “About Average.”

So If you haven’t visited the “Helpful Tips” page, you might want to go check it out! And if you feel that one of my sewing projects should be marked with a different difficulty level, please let me know. I’d be happy to change its designation.

Next week I plan to be back with more new and wonderful patterns and tutorials to share. See you then!
