Since American Girl came out with the new 14 ½” Wellie Wishers doll, I’ve had many people asking if I will be doing patterns to fit them. So I thought I had better get myself one so that I could do a little experimenting. Ashlyn finally arrived and around about the same time, I started a Facebook group, Rosie’s Doll Clothes Sew and Share. One of the first people to join this group was Ann Mellor who has done my How to Sew Doll Clothes video course and been a wonderful customer since my very first year. Ann posted some gorgeous photos of Hearts 4 Hearts and Wellie Wishers dolls wearing clothes that she had made after resizing some of my patterns. So immediately ……Read More
WAKE UP EVERYONE! It’s time to grab a bargain!
I’ve had so many people tell me how much they love my bedtime patterns, especially my Winter Pyjama and my Winter Nightie Patterns that I thought I’d give everyone the chance to own them. ‘Sew’, until the end of May, 2017 I’m selling all my bedtime patterns at 20% Off the Retail Price.

Instead of my usual Share and Tell blog, I thought I would do a special blog letting you all know about a new Facebook Group that I started at the request of one of my customers who was looking for a place to share photos of her creations and get inspiration. This group is called Rosie’s Doll Clothes Sew and Share. The intention of this group is to provide a place where we can share our creations, encourage each other, ask questions and help each other with tips and tricks that we’ve discovered, and most importantly, be inspired.Read More
Well, I know March Madness is all about Basketball in the US but here is Australia it’s usually a fairly ‘nothing’ month with the kids finally back at school at the end of January, Valentines Day is over and Easter is not quite here. So we’ve decided to liven things up and create some havoc with a little of our own “March Madness”.Read More
Oh my, this was meant to be ready for release in January but I just didn’t get a chance to put it together in time. Who else finds there just isn’t enough time in each day to get everything that you want done?
Well lets get started before February is gone too!Read More
Singing……’I’m dreaming of a white Christmas, Just like the ones I used to know.’ Believe me, I’m certainly dreaming of a white Christmas! You see it’s 35 degrees Celsius, that’s 95 degrees Fahrenheit for my American friends and it must be almost 80% humidity. Our air-conditioner has broken and the chances of it being fixed before Christmas day is somewhere between zero and one percent! Ahhhh, to be surrounded by snow.
It’s true though, I have always dreamed of having a white Christmas …….Read More
Oh boy a lot of sewing machines have been working overtime lately getting all those doll clothes made in time for Christmas gift giving. I know how busy things get at this time of the year so I’m thrilled that you have taken some extra time to take photos and send them in.
Marilynn has been seeing double lately …..Read More
Can you believe that it’s only 7 weeks until Christmas! And because I know a lot of you are planning to make doll clothes to give as gifts this year, I thought it would be awesome to reduce the price of ALL my doll clothes patterns by 20%.
This means that you can select a few extra patterns to make and add them to the Christmas stocking of that special someone in your life. Gosh, there are going to be lots of happy children on Christmas morning and just as many beautifully dressed dolls!Read More
This blog is not only about sharing photos of your doll clothes creations and the successes you have but also about sharing the times when you experience difficulties and how you overcame them. So I’m going to start this time with some photos that Betty Ann sent in and explain the issue that she was having.Read More
I received an email from Beth whose granddaughter has a favourite doll – a My Child Doll. Because this doll has very wide hips she was stumped on how to make clothes for her. This was rather frustrating for Beth as she really wanted to make some doll clothes for her granddaughter so she could play with and dress her favourite doll.
I knew exactly what Beth was talking about as I have a My Child doll too and she does have a rather awkward shape. So off to my sewing room I went on a mission to help Beth. Below is my reply to her and as I thought it may also be of interest to others I decided to share it in my blog.Read More
