For your free patterns and tutorial videos, please scroll down to the second set of bullets.
Okay, first things first… Did you notice yesterday’s blog post? My “How to Alter Doll Clothes Patterns” class is now available on the Creative Spark platform. YAY! So if you’ve been waiting to sign up — well, first, thank you for your patience. Thank you! THANK YOU!
And second, please be aware that once you sign up for the course, you have a full year to finish the class before the class closes for you.
So if you’re not quite ready to step into “learning mode,” you’re welcome to wait until a later date to sign up. There’s no deadline on the class itself. Just sign up whenever you’re ready (or whenever you can afford it).
We all know Covid has hit some families’ pocket books, plus Christmas spending and… well, to be honest, winter may not be the best launch-time for my class! 🤪
But that’s okay. You can sign up any time.
And with that said, let’s talk about sewing for Valentine’s Day!
With Valentine’s Day less than a month away, it’s time to start sewing those Valentine’s Day doll clothes projects for your nieces, grandchildren, kids, etc…
For the T-shirt pattern I’m sharing with you below, use View B. It will have more of an hourglass-figure than the T-shirt that’s labeled View C.
To make this T-shirt and capri pants/ankle pants, you’ll need some Valentine’s Day cotton fabric, white jersey fabric, 1/8 inch elastic, and a few Dritz size 3/0 snaps.*
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls:
