Hopefully you’re as excited as I am about this adorable Dutch windmill pincushion project! I actually started this project a full year ago, but I’ve waited to post it until just before Christmas because I think it would make a fantastic Christmas gift for anyone who sews or collects miniatures. Here’s a link to the Dutch windmill pincushion pattern for easy download. There have been … Continue reading Sew a #Dutch windmill #pincushion with free #sewing pattern @ ChellyWood.com (just like the old wind mills found in the #Netherlands)!
This week we’re re-visiting what used to be my “Summer Wardrobe” pattern for 11.5-inch fashion dolls like Mattel’s Barbie and similar-sized dolls. This was one of the earliest patterns I posted on ChellyWood.com, which is why it is hand-drawn. You can see that I’ve re-named it the Summer or Fall Wardrobe Pattern. People who live south of the equator–Australians, Africans in southern regions of the continent, … Continue reading #Autumn Harvest #Dolls’ Clothes #Patterns: a New Look to an Old Pattern @ ChellyWood.com

Today’s free pattern for a Barbie-doll-sized dress may look familiar to some of my regular followers. That’s because I posted it last spring as the “Springtime Flutter Dress” pattern. However that dress was the sleeveless version, and it didn’t use a petticoat. This week’s “Sunflower Harvest Dress” version uses the same pattern, but we’ll be making it with a scalloped-edge petticoat and cap sleeve. … Continue reading Free #autumn #dress pattern for fashion #dolls @ ChellyWood.com
This is the pattern for the “harvest apron” project that I showed in yesterday’s preview photos. It’s the same pattern that we used to make the reversible hairdresser’s apron (published here on ChellyWood.com in July of 2017). However in the latest project, I’ll be using this pattern as a one-sided apron–almost more of a pinafore–over the top of my sunflower dress for 11.5-inch fashion dolls … Continue reading #Dolls’ #Harvest Apron #Sewing Pattern @ ChellyWood.com
It doesn’t get easier than this! Here’s my free printable pattern for an easy-to-sew felt shirt, which is designed to fit 18-inch (46 cm) dolls like American Girl and Madame Alexander dolls (among others). Tomorrow I’ll post my tutorial showing you how to sew it together. Remember the Creative Commons Attribution mark on my patterns simply means that you may freely use my patterns, but … Continue reading Free #patterns for 18-inch #dolls’ easy- #sew shirt @ ChellyWood.com
It doesn’t get much simpler than this easy-to-sew felt shirt pattern. I’ve marked it with a one-flower difficulty symbol, indicating that it truly is for the absolute beginner. As this pattern is designed to be used with felt, it’s inexpensive to sew, and I think you’ll find that felt fabric can be very forgiving. If you’re wanting to teach someone how to sew–even a small … Continue reading #FREE shirt pattern for 28-inch fashion #dolls, like the #Fashion Friend Barbie
