This week’s ninja costume goes way back, so some of my long-time followers will probably remember it. I created the tutorial videos while on vacation in Arizona, and you’ll see some of my video footage was taken while traveling.
But in spite of the poor quality of the video, as we get closer to Halloween, this pattern tends to get a lot of downloads. So I decided it was time to convert these old patterns to PDFs (as it explains in the video at the top of the page).
To make your Barbie-sized ninja costume, you’ll need black jersey fabric, Dritz size 1/0 snaps, and a miniature Katana sword!
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls:
- Queens of Africa Dolls
- Momoko dolls
- modern and Made-to-Move Barbie dolls
- vintage Barbie dolls
- vintage Francie dolls
Here are your free, printable PDF sewing patterns and tutorial videos for making the ninja outfit shown in the video at the top of this page:
