If you’re planning to make my windmill pincushion (the pattern posts on November 6th, right here on ChellyWood.com), you’ll need to create some flowers to put in the flower boxes under the windmill’s windows.

It’s sometimes called a star eyelet because it actually does create a tiny eyelet in the center … Continue reading Learn to #embroider the Algerian eye or #star eyelet #stitch with this free tutorial:
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.

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

When it comes to sewing by hand and doing hand embroidery, tying knots is essential stuff! Usually, though, when I’m doing embroidery, I don’t dip the needle into the fabric like it shows in the video; instead, I dip the needle into a stitch that’s on the underside of the design… then I make my knot. It works the same way though, generally. I’ve been … Continue reading How to Tie a Knot Using a Needle and Thread @ ChellyWood.com #crafts #diy #Embroidery
