#TinyDoll dress #sewing pattern fits PollyPocket®, Kelly®, Chelsea® and more

Here we have a tiny-doll project for someone who is a beginning-to-intermediate sewist. (Any time you need to attach sleeves, the sewing gets a little harder than just beginner-level.) I still think this is a pretty easy project for tiny hands, so I’ve included this video in my “Easy-Sew Projects for Kids” tutorial collection. The pattern below goes with the tutorial above. It will fit most … Continue reading #TinyDoll dress #sewing pattern fits PollyPocket®, Kelly®, Chelsea® and more

Of course, when working with fabric, it’s not usually that … Continue reading How to Make Simple #Sewing Alterations for #Felt #DollClothes
