New music video to inspire your crafts… With Skipper Simplicity patterns 5861!


Sometimes I make doll clothes using other people’s patterns. I take lots of pictures, but what can I do with those pictures, since it’s not my pattern to offer up for free on this website?

Today I decided to make another “Sewing Inspiration” video, using Simplicity’s 5861 doll clothes patterns for vintage Skipper, which I’m really enjoying making!

As a fan of jazz, I decided to work with that genre to create my video, and although I pay a full “Pro” account price for my Animoto video software (which means I don’t have to mention the musicians at all), I want to honor the musicians who created this music with links, right here on…

So there you go! If you loved any of those jazzy pieces, consider navigating over to the musician’s link to see if they have any additional musical scores you’d like to add to your own collections.

And if you want to purchase the mini buttons and other sewing notions that appear in the video, take a look at yesterday’s blog post. It offers advice and details with regard to which products you should buy for various dolls.
