Sewing Pattern Book "Sew the Contemporary Wardrobe for 18-inch Dolls" - $12.99

Backpack, Crocheted Purse, Slippers and Mittens

BackpackEvery child has at least one backpack, and so should her dolls. This easy style was made from yellow fabric to match the A-line skirt, but can be stitched with any woven fabric. This is a fun project, so children will be thrilled to help make one. They can use any type of embellishment such as embroidery, iron-on motifs, decorative stitches (including a name) or even fabric paint!

Crocheted purseNo outfit is complete without a handbag. This crocheted purse is the perfect project for beginners and children to learn to crochet. It is fast and easy, so you can make one to match all your doll's outfits!

SlippersJoan couldn't resist whipping up these little scuffs to match the tank top and boxers. They are so quick that you can make several to match all your sleepwear in no time! Children most likely will need help attaching the upper to the felt sole.

MittensThese fleece mittens can be worn with any coat or jacket. They have ribbing at the top to hold the mittens over the wrists. Although these mittens are fast, children will need help around the curves and attaching the ribbing.

The backpack, purse, slippers and mittens fit 18-inch vinyl dolls (those with vinyl head, arms and legs and a cloth stuffed body) such as The American Girls Collection® by the Pleasant Company, Götz Dolls® (non-designer) and many others. The backpack, purse, slippers and mittens are actually designed to fit The American Girls Collection® and Götz Dolls® (non-designer). They will also fit the following dolls: Dress Me Doll© by The Martha Pullen Company, Faithful Friends Collection®, Liberty Landing®, Girls on the Go®, Savannah of Storybook Heirlooms™, Laura Ashley®, Collector's Lane®, Creative Doll Company®, Springfield Collection®, Sophia's Heritage Collection®, Autumn Harvest™, Our Generation™, Tolly Girl® and miscellaneous composition and porcelain dolls.

One of the things that is so fun when working with this pattern book is just the fact that none of the sewing patterns uses very much fabric. You can get out all those scraps of materials you have been saving for years, perhaps for quilts that will never get made, and start using the material. Also, I know many sewers who love to scour the fabric stores looking at the bargain little pieces of material that are left-over when all the fabric is sold off a bolt. These pieces of material are often marked down significantly making the doll clothes you sew a true bargain.

Also, the sewing patterns are fun because they use such a variety of materials. You will have an opportunity to work with denim, flannel, fleece, stretchy knit cotton for t-shirts, dressy satins and prom fabrics and more. If you are teaching children to sew, you can spend hours in the fabric stores picking out fun materials to sew with. But often the sewing notions can be found in your sewing stash left-over from some previous project so the cost can be kept down.

Infinite Freedom

My prayer is for a world so safe and abundant...
where all who love to sew are free to sew...
where all have the resources they need to sew...
and no strife or war can touch anyone who wants to sew.
