Make a snowflake dress for 8-inch baby dolls w/free patterns @ #HolidayEmbroidery #DollClothes

Lying on homemade baby blanket is a Lil Cutesie 8 inch baby doll (AKA Little Cutesie) wearing a handmade doll dress. The dress is sleeveless and it has a pink felt bodice attached to a white cotton flannel skirt that's decorated with tiny snowflakes. She wears pink felt booties to match the dress bodice, and barely visible under her dress is a matching diaper. All of these doll clothes patterns are free at Chelly Wood dot com.

These Lil’ Cutesies baby dolls will be making a cameo appearance in the class I’ll be offering with Creative Spark. They’re a product from JC Toys, and I just love the details in their dimpled fingers and realistically wrinkled little toes!

If you’re thinking about buying a baby doll for a child you know, for Christmas, let me suggest that these little 8-inch dolls are the perfect gift!

This week’s free sewing pattern will fit most 8″ (20 cm) baby dolls. Today’s free PDF sewing pattern comes with two pieces… the dress at the top of this blog post and the little pattern for a diaper that you see here:


For today’s project, though, we won’t need the sleeve that’s found on the diaper page because we’re making this little dress with a sleeveless felt bodice.

Below are the links to the patterns and tutorial videos that will help you create today’s dress, diaper, and shoes for 8-inch baby dolls:

What’s unique about this baby doll dress? It includes a little embroidered snowflake on the front of the felt bodice. Of course that’s optional, but if you’d like to learn how to make that, here’s a link to my snowflake embroidery tutorial:


These patterns were designed to fit the 8-inch Lil’ Cutesies dolls that are produced by JC Toys. Follow that link to purchase one of these dolls, for your Christmas gift-giving! The person Chelly Wood and the website are not affiliated with the JC Toys company, but I have been very impressed with the quality of the Lil’ Cutesies dolls. And their company has given me permission to use their dolls in my classes with Creative Spark and all ads related to the class.

Since all of my patterns and tutorials use the Creative Commons Attribution mark, please show your appreciation for these free patterns and tutorial videos by liking them on Facebook, pinning them on Pinterest, and/or tweeting about them.

If this post looks familiar to you, that’s because while I’m busy making my paid course for Creative Spark, I’m taking a bit of a vacation from making new blog posts. Learn more here.
