The image shows a screenshot of the Barbie doll clothes pattern gallery from ChellyWood.com (a doll clothes sewing website offering free printable PDF sewing patterns for making doll clothes to fit dolls of many shapes and sizes). This is part of a computer glitch topic of discussion on the Chelly Wood doll clothes pattern website.

Glitchy problems with my website and what I’m doing about it… #WordPress #Glitch

If you’re a regular follower of ChellyWood.com, you’ve probably noticed that my gallery pages are weirdly overlapping lately. I’m aware of the problem, and I’ve reached out for help. You should be seeing normal images that look sort of like this, with obvious spaces between the images in the galleries: But instead, my images are all laid out like a hand of cards, overlapping one … Continue reading Glitchy problems with my website and what I’m doing about it… #WordPress #Glitch

In this image, we see a smattering of tools that will be needed to take the Creative Spark course on doll clothes pattern alterations with Chelly Wood. The items include the following: a doll, a ruler with metric and imperial measurements, a pencil with an eraser, graph paper, patterns that don't quite fit your doll, fabric, craft felt, ribbons, elastic, and post-it notes or scratch paper.

“How to Alter Doll Clothes Patterns” Class Update @ctpublishing #DollClothesPatterns #DollCollector

I’m a school librarian in my “day job,” so over spring break, I brainstormed with my editor at C&T Publishing’s Creative Spark online learning platform. I wondered why so many people were curious about my class, but so few people actually signed up for it. My editor and I decided that the general audience didn’t understand a key element of my class: how to re-size … Continue reading “How to Alter Doll Clothes Patterns” Class Update @ctpublishing #DollClothesPatterns #DollCollector

On a purple cotton background, we see the words "filming has begun for a new class" plus a video camera icon atop an image of two different sizes of dolls with tape measures all around them and a set of patterns beneath them. The ChellyWood.com log is in the lower left corner.

Filming has begun for a new Creative Spark class! @ctpublishing #CraftLessons #DollClothesPatterns

Did you vote, back when I posted class topic options, on March 8th? Well it has nearly been a month since then, and the votes are all in! The next Chelly Wood class on the Creative Spark platform will be “How to Design Your Own Doll Pants From Scratch!” I really want to work with 15 inch dolls in particular, although the techniques I’ll be … Continue reading Filming has begun for a new Creative Spark class! @ctpublishing #CraftLessons #DollClothesPatterns

In this photo, the Chelly Wood doll (actually a Spin Master Liv doll that has had its face re-painted and its wig dyed grey to look like the doll clothing designer, YouTuber, and writer Chelly Wood) stands in her sewing room with her arms spread out wide in a welcoming stance. On the doll's right (your left) we see her hutch filled with tiny folded fabrics. There's a window directly behind her. At her side is her sewing desk with tiny fabrics, a miniature sewing machine, and other sewing supplies on top. To her left (your right) behind the doll, there's a sea blue mannequin displaying an in-progress sun dress with a tape measure around the mannequin's neck. Hanging from a sea blue hanger on the wall is the white party dress with tiny polka dots that often appears in Chelly's videos on the mannequin. The floor is hard wood. The wall is purple. Chelly's desk chair has been upholstered in sea blue fabric. In the corner of the image is the logo for ChellyWood.com

Update on my Creative Spark class: #Design #DollClothes

Hi guys! I bet you’ve heard by now that I’ll be teaching a design-your-own-doll-clothes course with C&T Publishing on their Creative Spark Online Learning platform. The last time I brought this up, many of you said that cost would be a factor in your decision to purchase a class in doll clothing design techniques. So what I’ve done is broken my class into three sections. … Continue reading Update on my Creative Spark class: #Design #DollClothes
