This website is best known for its free, printable sewing patterns for doll clothes. It also offers free printable sewing patterns for craft projects and free tutorial videos for embroidery. (Click those links for easy access.)
Today’s tutorial is designed to help you navigate ChellyWood.com’s new layout, using your desktop or laptop computer.

My regular followers are already aware that this site went through a big makeover last summer (2019), and now there are new directories. However any time you re-design a website, there will be glitches.
If you find links that don’t work or patterns that download as the wrong thing (or missing pieces), please leave a comment below (or on the page in question) describing what the problem is. You can also submit a question. I will address these issues as they arise.
Please be aware that older patterns are only available as a JPG (graphic) image, but I’d like to change that. Converting all those old patterns to PDFs will take time, so be patient and know that I am working on it.
On that front, my #TapeMeasureTuesday posts haven’t been particularly popular, so in the future, I will only make them on an as-needed basis.
Instead of #TapeMeasureTuesday doll-measurement posts, I’d like to start using my Monday and Tuesday blog posts to re-publish older patterns as PDFs instead of JPG (graphic) files. That way people will have an easier time downloading these older patterns.
If any of you would like me to stop producing new patterns for a while and just begin switching JPG files to PDFs for easy download, leave a comment to that effect below.
However, if I make that shift from new-pattern-creation to old-pattern-revision, it will be a while before I can convert patterns for Mattel dolls, as I’m currently waiting for Mattel to give me formal permission to post images of their dolls.
Remember that my patterns are 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:
