Make some miniature Christmas stockings w/free patterns @ #HolidayDIY #DollClothesPatterns

Today’s tutorial video shows you how to make a Christmas stocking for your 1:6 scale dollhouse or diorama.

Yes, I’ve posted this tutorial and this stocking pattern before, but last year I remastered the tutorial video to include a voice-over for instruction. And not only that, but new followers might not be aware that I have this tutorial and pattern on the Crafts page, on my website.

So every year I re-post this one and it tends to get a lot of traffic, so it must be a good one to repost at Christmas time!

The following links will help you make not only the Christmas stockings, but the fashion doll clothes that you see my Queens of Africa Azeezah doll wearing below.

Here we see a lovely Queens of Africa Azeezah doll standing next to a doll-sized fireplace with stockings hanging over it. Behind the doll is a heart-shaped Christmas wreath. To her right is a doll-sized Christmas tree decorated with tiny ornaments. There are teeny-tiny wrapped gifts under the tree. The doll wears a red felt shirt with straps and a bell-shaped above-the-knee skirt made of small-print cotton made of tiny holly-leaf print.

  1. I don’t know if I have posted a comment on your website/blog before, but I want to thank you for all the doll clothes, etc. patterns you have given for free. Not much we get for free these days. lol I am looking for the dress pattern on the main 18″ doll pattern page. It is made of red fabric and has a more tanktop type top to the dress. Is this available? I haven’t been able to find it yet. Thank you.`

    1. Do you mean the dress pictured on this page?

      It’s still on the drawing board. I’ve made two different renditions of it, but I wasn’t happy with how either of them turned out. The one pictured there is actually too big for the doll. It lays on her shoulders sort of sloppily. I have a blue one that I sewed together and thought it looked even worse. So I ended up cutting up the blue fabric and making it into dresses for smaller dolls.

      Eventually I plan to re-build that pinafore dress pattern for my 18 inch dolls, but it may be a while. I got frustrated with that pattern and had to just move away from it for a bit.

      Sorry if I’ve disappointed you, but I don’t like to publish my patterns until I feel they are truly ready for other people to sew. I hope you’ll understand…
