This week, as I build a gallery of patterns for sewing a small wardrobe to fit Disney’s Moana 10 inch dolls, I want to recommend a few goodies that will help you create your doll clothes.
I recommend buying Dritz size 2/0 sew-on snaps. With this link, you can buy 10 sew-on snaps on Amazon. That’s enough to make about two or three shirts for a doll this size.
When sewing felt, Velcro kind of creates a fuzzy mess, so definitely go with sew-on snaps instead of Velcro this time around.
And you’ll need 1/8 inch white elastic for both the pants and today’s skirt patterns (although 1/4 inch will work in a pinch).
That link will take you to PensPins on Etsy, which is where I bought the elastic I used for all the masks I made during the early stages of the Coronavirus pandemic. Having ordered five yards of elastic from PensPins prior to the start of the pandemic, I had more than enough for making masks plus additional doll clothes.
Do you remember how there was a shortage of narrow elastic during the early stages of the pandemic? Well I was ever-so-grateful to PensPins for supplying me with five yards of 1/4 inch elastic — enough elastic to make masks for all the members of my family plus keep my tutorials rolling! And that’s why I’m promoting their Etsy store here today.
Blessings and good wishes to Paula N. and the staff at PensPins in Greenville, South Carolina!
