Kids’ Sewing~ More Doll Clothes

My girls have sewn a lot of doll clothes over the past 2 years and they have gotten a bit more advanced. Some of these patterns I have created for them and some were freebies we found. Some of my patterns are available on the blog and some have yet to be published. (Vote at the end of this post for which one we should post next!) For now, I thought I would share which…

Kids’ Sewing ~ Doll Peasant Dresses

I mentioned last week that I have been sharing my sewing machines with my daughters. I want to make sure that my girls know how to sew because I want them to be self-sufficient adults one day and not bug me to do their mending. I hate mending. These doll clothes were sewn by my daughters. Doll peasant dresses are a really good beginner sewing project! It is one of the first things I teach…

All Spice Dress

I haven’t been sewing much this summer. The girls have been hogging my sewing machines to make doll clothes and key fobs. I guess that is the downside of teaching them to sew. Now I have to share. I was pretty excited to get the chance to be a part of the grand opening tour for Project Run and Play’s new shop because it meant that I could kick them off of my machine! If…

Key Fobs

My 14yo daughter has a shopping addiction. Unfortunately, I cannot afford to fund it. As a mean mother, I force her to earn spending money. One of those ways is through sewing. She has made doll clothes in the past, but now that she is a little older she is transitioning to new sewing ventures. Her first product line is key fobs. I have them listed in my shop if you are interested. If you…

Hipster Cat Dress

My niece just turned 5 years old and she is such a cutie pie! She has big, pink glasses and she was wanted a “kitty” birthday party. When I saw THIS fabric on Joann’s website I knew that I had to make her a special dress for her birthday. She is also very thin with long legs so I thought it would be nice for her to have something sized just for her. I decided…

Unicorn Dresses

A few weeks ago someone absolutely destroyed my sewing scissors. I still don’t know who or how it happened. I don’t think that mere paper could have caused those nicks and warped the metal blades. It is a mystery. But I was in the mood to sew something, so I turned to the pile of projects that I already had cut out. I am not 100% happy with these, but they will probably stain and…

Elastic Sleeve Doll Peasant Dress Pattern and Tutorial

Peasant dresses are really easy to make and there are a lot of simple variations that can drastically alter the style. It is a perfect beginner sewing project! The next step up from the basic peasant dress is the addition of elastic to the sleeves. Now, for a peasant dress for a human girl I would just make an elastic casing, but since doll clothes have smaller pieces I like to just add the elastic…

Red Tractor Dish Towels

Most people do not understand, but there is a lot of disagreement within the farming community. Red vs. Green There are other tractors, but the main rivalry exists between John Deere and International Harvester users. I married into the red side. (My dad was just happy for a working tractor- color did not matter.) Snarky t-shirts are often seen at family picnics. My youngest daughter refuses to wear green or yellow. The kids argue at…
