How to Buy Fabric for Making Doll Clothes @ ChellyWood.com #DollClothes #Sewing

Once when I was at the dentist office, I mentioned to the receptionist that I make doll clothes. “I wish I could do that!” she said. So I told her about my sewing tutorials and explained that she can easily learn how to sew using YouTube tutorials just like mine. “But I don’t know how to buy material,” she said. Since I came from a … Continue reading How to Buy Fabric for Making Doll Clothes @ ChellyWood.com #DollClothes #Sewing

The image shows a vintage McCall's printed sewing pattern for making a wardrobe of doll clothes for "chubby baby and toddler dolls" in the size range from 12 to 22 inches, depending upon whether you purchase the small, medium, or large doll clothes pattern set. The striking image on this pattern (published by McCall's in 1968) is the fact that a doll with brown skin and black hair appears on this pattern front, along with a variety of little blond and red headed dolls.

Why aren’t there more multicultural dolls on sewing patterns? Join the #SewingChat @ ChellyWood.com for #MLKday

As today happens to be Martin Luther King Day in the United States, I’d like to write about the fact that images on doll clothes sewing patterns available in the US today do not accurately reflect the demographics of our nation. Before Caucasian people came to North America, only Native American people lived here. To this day, Native American people and mixed-race Native Americans live … Continue reading Why aren’t there more multicultural dolls on sewing patterns?

This photograph shows the Chelly Wood doll clothing designer doll measuring Skipper's arm with a tiny 1:6 scale tape measure. Skipper extends her arm while the Chelly Wood doll looks at the tape measure to determine how long Skipper's arm is from the underarm to the wrist. Skipper stands barefoot in a swimsuit beside Chelly Wood's tiny 1:6 scale sewing desk. On the desk, a Creatable World doll is seated, waiting her turn for measurements. The creatable World doll seems to be wearing a training bra and panties. Their legs are crossed so the CW doll leans back on the sewing table elegantly. Behind them is a dress form, ironing board, and a tiny window. There's also a miniature china hutch filled with fabric. This is clearly a teeny-tiny doll sewing room. All the dolls seem to be having fun as they prepare for a new wardrobe that fits both Skipper and the Creatable World doll. If you'd like to see the wardrobe of free printable sewing patterns that Chelly Wood has designed for either Skipper dolls or Creatable World dolls, please visit ChellyWood.com and click on the 10 inch doll size from the main Home page gallery.

So I recommend searching for modern Skipper patterns, if you’re sewing a wardrobe for Creatable World dolls. Vintage Skipper dolls have different measurements, … Continue reading Creatable World Doll Sewing Measurements (Comparing Them to Skipper) @ ChellyWood.com #CreatableWorld #TapeMeasureTuesday

This image shows the Chelly Wood doll holding a tape measure next to the 6 inch Mini American Girl doll. Beside these two is a blond haired, tan-bodied made-to-move Barbie doll. All three dolls wear handmade doll clothes. They appear to be standing in a tiny sewing room, complete with a desk, a sewing machine, and other sewing-related furnishings. It looks like the dolls are about to use the tiny tape measure to take measurements of the little American Girl 6 inch doll, for a sewing project. This image accompanies a blog post for hashtag tape measure Tuesday in which we learn the specific measurements for the 6 inch American girl doll mini. The blog post for measuring a 6 inch doll is found at ChellyWood.com, and this watermark appears on the photograph of these dolls.
