Happy Parents Day! Because parents do so many things to make life great for their kids, I’m posting a special pattern today that has often been requested…
It’s a camp shirt (or you could make it just an ordinary shirt without the rolled sleeves, tab, and pockets) to fit 12″ (30.5 cm) action figures and male dolls like Broad Ken, GI Joe, and the WWE action figures.
Today’s free printable PDF sewing pattern fulfills those abundant requests!
If you look through the list below, you’ll see that this pattern also fits some of the larger female dolls that I work with as well.
Today’s free printable PDF patterns will fit the following dolls or action figures:
- 12 inch (30.5 cm) GI Joe action figures
- 12 inch Broad Ken dolls
- 12 inch WWE wrestler action figures
- 17 inch (43 cm) Endless Hair Kingdom Princess Barbie dolls
- 16-17 inch (40.5 cm to 43 cm) Tonner Fashion Dolls

Hey wow! What a great job! You must have lots of fun making those videos. Thank you so much for your time and effort!
I do enjoy making them, and you are quite welcome. 🙂
Thank-you for sharing these videos and patterns ! They are wonderful , easy to follow and turn out great every time !
Thank you for the feedback! That’s good to know!
PLEASE!!! Please do written, printable, step-by-step instructions as well as a video! I would like to be able to listen to music or a podcast while I’m sewing and not have to constantly switch and pause a youtube video! Please, all your neuro-divergent fans are begging you. Videos are great but not always super accessible!
Well… If I win the lottery and can quit my day job (as a school librarian), I may have time for that. But I’m not sure I’d find it entertaining.
Really, I just create these patterns and tutorial videos because they are fun for me. They don’t make a lot of money for me. I just enjoy this hobby and am willing to share my doll clothing design talents with the world.
Still, I always appreciate thoughtful feedback. Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. 🧵
