This diorama photo comes from ChellyWood.com, a website offering free printable sewing patterns for Barbie and many other dolls. This diorama scene has fall leaves, a wheelbarrow full of harvested vegetables from a garden, and a stack of hay bales with an apple cider barrel behind them. In the distance a garden has a river running through it with a bridge over the water. In front of all this, the three Barbies stand holding hands, facing the camera in hand-sewn doll clothes. Their outfits include (first Barbie doll) a white tank top edged in red stitching, a pair of red shorts with white polka dots, and a pair of irrigation boots; (second Barbie doll) a sunflower-printed dress with fluttery sleeves and a gathered skirt that is edged in burgundy rick-rack, having a pinafore of yellow that matches its petticoat of yellow; (the third Barbie doll) wears a handmade bright green felt shirt with green lace straps and green lace edging the top of the shirt along with a lace-edged floral mini-skirt and green go-go boots. The overlay offers the website, "ChellyWood.com" which is a website where you can find free printable sewing patterns and tutorials fo r making each of these Barbie doll outfits.

#Fall #Harvest Separates for Barbie and Other Fashion #Dolls w/FREE #Patterns @ ChellyWood.com

Does that doll’s outfit look familiar? I’m guessing it probably doesn’t, even though it should. Adding embellishments to a garment (rickrack trim, a swatch of lace, bias tape, or embroidery) can magically transform the look of a garment! So let’s say you have an old stand-by pattern that you already know how to sew. You’ve made three or four outfits in different colors and prints … Continue reading #Fall #Harvest Separates for Barbie and Other Fashion #Dolls w/FREE #Patterns @ ChellyWood.com

The image shows a GI Joe doll wearing a pair of handmade shorts or boxers. Behind him, on a spackled wall, is a classical painting, and under that is a work desk with computer, printer, and an office-style desk lamp. A folding chair is pushed up to the desk. G.I. Joe seems to look off into the distance, modeling his argyle shorts/ underwear with a nonchalant look on his scarred fact. The GIjoe action figure is African American, with sculpted abs and bare feet. The overlay offers the website where the free printable sewing patterns for making these shorts can be found: ChellyWood.com.

This week’s free, printable sewing pattern is for making a pair of boxers or summer shorts to fit broad-bodied dolls like G.I. Joe action figures, Broad Ken dolls, and similar-sized 12-inch male dolls. I know that a lot of my followers like to sew for Barbie and Ken, but were you aware that Ken’s shape has recently changed?

The image shows Chelly Wood's hand holding a delicately hand-stitched dress made of burgundy fabric that's dotted with little yellow sunflowers. A yellow petticoat dips out from under the full skirt of the dress, and the dress's rickrack edging forms a wavy scallop along the division line between the dress itself and the petticoat. The dress has very short cap sleeves. The petticoat, too, has a scalloped edge, which has been formed by attaching rickrack to the underside of the petticoat. This handmade dress will fit Barbie and most 11.5 inch fashion dolls of similar size and shape. The overlay on this photograph says: ChellyWood.com, "Free printable sewing patterns for dolls of many shapes and sizes."

Isn’t that an adorable harvest scene? This “harvest dress and pinafore” was part of a little girl’s birthday gift that I made. The pinafore is actually a re-design of the reversible hairdresser’s apron pattern that I made and posted back in 2016. (Click here for a link to that project.) This week I’m going to focus on the pinafore, as it can be complicated if … Continue reading #Sew a Pinafore-style #Apron for Fashion #Dolls w/free pattern@ ChellyWood.com
