It was on St. Patrick’s day last month, when I uploaded the little yellow version of today’s jacket for teeny-tiny dolls. Now it’s almost Easter, and I’ve taken this easy-to-sew felt jacket pattern up a notch, by adding embroidery to it and a lining.
Of course the video at the top of this page shows you how to find my embroidery tutorials, but to make it simpler, here’s a link to my embroidery tutorial gallery.
And once again, you’ll need the rambler rose, the Algerian star (or daisy stitch), the French knot, the running stitch (for vines), and the detached chain stitch (for leaves).
OR you could just skip the embroidery and create a lined jacket with no added details.
To make today’s embroidered, lined, felt jacket for miniature dolls, you’ll need embroidery floss, embroidery needles (Clover is a good brand), cotton fabric, and a swatch of craft felt.
