On a purple frame, the Disney princess Merida doll is photographed wearing a green plaid short-skirted dress with bloomers. The words "free pattern" appear at an angle to the doll's right (the viewer's left) and under these words is the Chelly Wood dot com logo. You can find free PDF sewing patterns for making this dress and these doll bloomers at ChellyWood.com (a website for free printable PDF sewing patterns to fit dolls of many shapes and all different sizes).

The image shows a close-up of the digital sewing planner page that was designed by Chelly Wood for setting sewing goals. The top of the image says "Editable PDF" and the edge of the planner is decorated with purple stitching on a white background with lace edging. The heading on the planner itself says "My Sewing Goals" in purple, but you can also see where someone has typed in "Date: January 1, 2023" and in one of the flag-shaped, stitching-edge bars where you are meant to type your goals, someone has typed in "Clean Sewing Room." This shows an example of how this digital planner is editable.
