I've been working on a new pattern for a while now, and I'd hoped to share it here the first week of October. A crazy thing happened last week though....I had two kids in school for two mornings (AT THE SAME TIME!!) I made a lot of progress finishing up the pattern, and I'm so happy to share all the details with you today.
These fairy dolls are the same size as the dolls from my bedbug pattern that I made last year, about 9 inches. The pattern is a little bit different, but I made sure that all the great clothes options from the bedbug pattern (a mermaid tail, dress, shirt, superhero cape) all still fit these dolls too. This Fairy Doll Pattern comes with two flower skirts and a dress for clothing options. The dress is super special because it can be made to transform a regular fairy into something special... A TOOTH FAIRY!!
This pattern has three clothing options so that you can make three super special dolls:
I feel like their little embroidered faces and 50's style hair totally give these little fairies their own sense of style.
And when they are tired, you can tuck them into their cute little beds made of flowers. Both templates are included in the pattern. As a sneak peak for my pattern, I'm going to show you how to make the Daisy Flower bed on the blog right here tomorrow. Because you know that I love giving you guys a sneak peak into what's in my patterns! I feel like it's a great way to get a feel for what my patterns are like.
Alright, are you ready for all the pattern details? Keep reading below!
•Sewing straight seams, back-stitching (and when to use) with a sewing machine
•Ability to adjust length of stitch on your sewing machine to make stronger, smaller seams
•Using hand-sewing (the Ladder stitch) to close the doll body (some experience is helpful, but not required).
•Pressing with an iron to fold in seam allowances
•Ease of working with small seam allowances (1/4 inch) and sewing in small spaces.
•Some experience transferring an image (the face template) onto the fabric (for embroidery) is helpful, but not required.
The pattern itself is 26 pages long, with over 100 color "how-to" pictures. It includes 8 pages of template pattern pieces.
In terms of licencing, this pattern is intended for the home sewer. You are welcome to use my pattern to make dolls for a small scale craft fair or online shop, but no mass production, okay?
Here's a sneak peak as to what you can expect if you purchase one of my patterns:
