Free Doll Clothes Pattern (August 17th, 2018) Help Us Decide

Hi everyone, 

On Friday (August 17th, 2018) we will offer a pattern from Jeri Shore of Peppermintsticks.  for free as a special one-day only event. We'd love to have you vote to help us decide which pattern will win, then be sure to come back Friday to get your free copy.

More About Jeri and Peppermintsticks, (in her own words)...

I’ve always been a girl that loved dolls.  One of my favorite memories is when I was about 5 years old and my mom surprised me with a new outfit she had sewn while I was at kindergarten.  I came home and walked into my bedroom and there was my Tiny Tears doll standing up in her toy crib just like a real baby.  She was wearing a new flannel sleeper and cap.  I felt just like a real mommy.  You know, one of those Suzie homemaker toy commercials that plays in slow motion.  It was just like a dream.  My mom made many of the outfits with her 1964 McCall’s pattern.  She taught me to hand sew with the scraps, alongside her as she sewed.  It's these types of memories that inspired me to sew for my own children and friends.  After all, creative imaginations love big wardrobes for their dolls.  Thank you for your support over the last few years and I hope you enjoy your free pattern!

Wild Waves One Piece Skirted Swimsuit Designed To Fit 14.5 Inch Dolls Such As WellieWishers™:  Splashing around in the water, these little 14.5” doll cuties are bound to create Wild Waves in their one-piece skirted swimsuits by Peppermintsticks. The carefree one-piece suit features a wavy skirt, with fold-over elastic trim around the top and back of the suit. It pulls on easily and has a snap closure at the neck. Mix and match bright colors, polka dots or animal print swim fabrics with fun shades of the fold-over elastic to make a wild waves combination all your own. The PDF sewing pattern also contains instructions for making a little matching headband from the fabric scraps and elastic. Embellish it with a tiny decorative button and it makes a fun fashion accessory.

Wild Waves One Piece Skirted Swimsuit Designed To Fit 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl®:  As the tide slowly came in along the shoreline, the wild waves began to wash away our magnificent sand city of castles and dreams. We vowed to return again next year to begin again. The Wild Waves swimsuit is perfect for a vacation at the beach, lounging by the pool or taking a pretend swimming lesson. The one-piece suit features a wavy skirt, with fold over elastic trim around the top and back of the suit. It pulls on easily and has a snap closure at the neck. Mix and match bright colors, polka dots or animal print swim fabrics with fun shades of the fold over elastic to make a wild waves combination all your own. The Wild Waves PDF sewing pattern is sized for 18 inch dolls.  

The Friendship Garden Capri and Shorts Designed To Fit 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl®:  The Friendship Garden Capri & Shorts PDF pattern for 18 inch dolls will be the perfect addition to grow your doll’s wardrobe this season. The trendy hi-lo hemline has a sporty look and is a good mixer with all kinds of tops, from blouses to tee shirts. The pattern features a knee length capri pant and shorts that come in two lengths: medium and short. Choose to sew real circle shape pockets with lots of topstitching, or make the quick version with no pockets; you decide how much detail to add. The narrow waistband has a flat front with an elastic back for easy dressing. Add a small decorative button, ribbon or cording trim as an accent to the finished waistband to add more interest. Whether your doll is working in the garden, or shopping at the local farmer’s market, she’ll be all set to go with the latest Friendship Garden designs by Peppermintsticks.

The Friendship Garden Tie Blouse and Friendship Bracelets Designed To Fit 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl®:   The Friendship Garden Tie Blouse is perfect for pretty cotton floral prints or fun novelty print fabrics. It has two sleeve options to choose from and comes in a short active length. It has a front tie with tiny buttons and snap closures or simplify with hook and loop tape . Add a tiny front patch pocket if desired or let the fabric itself stand out. Make it with the adorable puffy bubble sleeves or make it sporty and sleeveless. Just for fun we’ve added instructions for making tiny doll-size friendship bracelets. Using colorful strands of craft thread and decorative buttons, plant seeds of friendship by sharing your bracelets with your friends and their dolls too! Pick from two styles: a rope bracelet or a fishtail braid. Both are easy, and so much fun to make!

Super cute swimsuits! And there’s still some summer left to go!!

I would like to add another voice to the ‘WW vs AG’ issue. As someone else mentioned, when the WW smaller size patterns are up against the AG patterns, the AG larger size always wins. Could there be a 1X per month ‘small sizes (WW) only’ featured designer? Or else multiple smaller sizes? (WW, Ellowyne Wilde, BJD, etc.) Thank you so much for the Freebie Friday pattern program, it’s awesome and I’m just asking to make it
a little more awesome-er!
