This week I’ve given you a new pattern for a small-bodied doll’s bias-tape-edged tunic or shirt dress. For anyone who is unfamiliar with bias tape, I thought I’d re-post my bias tape tutorial this week as well.
The bias tape project in today’s video uses felt for a doll’s garment, and I often recommend learning to sew with felt. But the drawback to making dolls’ clothes out of felt is the fray factor. Felt is easy to cut and sew, plus it’s easy to buy in craft stores, even if you don’t know anything about fabric.
But over time, felt frays (the edges get all fuzzy). Bias tape can help solve that problem, extending the life of the doll’s clothing.
For the pattern mentioned in the video, go here. To access the video tutorial that shows you how to sew the shirt itself, this is the link you want.
