Time to take a break from designing and sewing Doll Clothes Patterns.
This year, Alyssa decided to hide some eggs for her American Girl doll, Jessica, to find. She figured that Jessica would enjoy an Easter Egg hunt just as much as she does. Here are some of the photos that I took of the two girls enjoying their own special Easter Egg Hunt. I hope you enjoy!Read More

Exciting news for all those Australian Girl doll fans, my American Girl doll clothes patterns will fit your Australian Girl doll beautifully too!
The main differences between the two dolls are that the Australian Girl doll has a slightly longer torso and legs, the arms are definitely longer and her feet are bigger. These differences don’t affect the fitting of my doll clothes patterns that I have available at this stage as they do not have long sleeves and all have a little room for body variances due to the fact the American Girl body is fabric and may be stitched and stuffed differently.Read More

Recently I was asked at what age should I teach my child to sew? Well, I guess this really depends on the child and their ability to learn fine motor skills and the time you have available to teach them. You can have your child hand sewing with wool on a piece of craft hessian at quite a young age. I have a piece that Alyssa worked on at Kindergarten when she was 4 years old (check out the photo to the right) and this is a great place to start as it teaches the very basics of pushing and pulling a needle and thread through fabric. When my son was about 5 years oldRead More
Wow, what a wonderful response to my first blog. I have received emails from lots of moms who have been thinking about making doll clothes for their children but were not sure where to start. It’s great to hear that they are now eagerly progressing through my How to Make Doll Clothes Video Course, learning all my secrets and gaining confidence to finally sew doll clothes for their children. Many people have asked “Why spread your course over 6 weeks”? Well, it has over 120 comprehensive videos covering everything from how to set up your sewing room to attaching frills and collars so I don’t want to overwhelm you. The best part about my course is you can replay the video, place it on pause while you answer the phone, or skip over things you already know ….. you get to work at your own pace in the comfort of your own home.Read More
Hi everyone and welcome to my first blog entry. I’m Rosanne, but all my friends call me Rosie and I’m a stay-at-home Mom who has always loved craft and especially sewing. I started sewing doll clothes around 8 years of age and was so proud of my creations that I kept them hoping that when I had a daughter, she would play with them. Of course her dolls were a totally different size and shape to mine so none of them fitted and I had to make new doll clothes for her. Finding doll clothes patterns that would fit her dolls was not easy and I had to make lots of changes to patterns I bought so I drafted my own …..Read More
