I have received a number of enquiries asking if I do smaller size doll clothes patterns and the occasional request for larger doll clothes patterns. Branching into other size doll clothes patterns is definitely something I would love to do in the future but I realize that many of you cannot wait until I get around to it. So I thought I would share a tip that may help you to adjust my existing patterns or …….Read More

These are soooooo cool! Sharon has made my Pumpkin doll clothes pattern in different colors and the result is fantastic! Sharon sews for her granddaughters who live in a different country so doesn’t have a doll to model them on but had a little fun finding alternative models…..this certainly puts the spooky into Halloween.Read More
I have received so many photos showing some really wonderful outfits created from my doll clothes patterns that I will have to split them into two blogs. So if your photo is not in this blog, watch out in the coming weeks as it will certainly be featured then.
Firstly, Ann has been super busy. Love the frill that she has added to the crop tops and the summer pj’s are so cute too! Ann’s sister-in-law gave her an old corduroy sleeveless dress that she wore for a special occasion only once and Ann has made a duplicate dress, just like hers, with the pretty design on the bodice using my summer dress pattern. She has also made a ………Read More

Hi Rosie. This is a great idea. I do something similar. I trace my patterns onto ……Read More
One of my wonderful customers, Debbi, has sent me another great tip that she learnt way back when ‘Knitwit’ was the sewing craze here in Australia (sometime in the 70’s and 80’s) to help preserve her original patterns. Debbi prints her pattern pieces out using standard copying paper and keeps this as her ‘master copy’. She then pins or tapes…..Read More
My popular sarong doll clothes patterns in both 18 Inch American Girl and Cabbage Patch Kids are now available with the option to make a short or long sarong.

Because I do a lot of sewing I am often asked, ‘What sewing machine do you use?’ The person asking is usually looking to buy a new sewing machine and as there are so many machines available today, they are wanting a little guidance so that they can be more confident in buying a sewing machine that has been recommended. This tends to indicate that the machine has been tried and tested by someone else so should be reliable and perfect for them. I am always happy to let them know what sewing machine I am using but ……..Read More
