SweaterDoll is a land of making, a place for YOU time, with a put-the-world-down-and-enjoy-yourself message. It is the result of a lifelong addiction to needle and thread, simple tools for making the pictures in one’s head come alive.
Allison Dey Malacaria (CEO – Chief Embroidery Officer) designs embroidery patterns, toy and doll sewing patterns, and provides pre-printed embroidery fabrics for low-tech, artful, simple, portable, story-rich YOU time.
Where to begin? Embroidery School, on the website, is a free learning series with a downloadable sampler. Or just visit the shop and choose a design that makes you itch to stitch.
This free pattern provides 1) directions to make square paper out of any sheets of paper you have; 2) directions to make the snowflake base needed for cutting; 3) twenty foolproof templates for 6-pointed snowflakes.
Make your snowflakes from used or new papers! Once you get the hang of it, you'll be able to easily cut your own designs.
Use newspaper, book pages, color catalogs, white drawing or printer paper. You can also fold and iron linen or cotton quilting fabric for some really beautiful designs.
Just remember to use only fabric scissors on fabric and paper scissors for paper. You don't want to dull your sewing shears!
Merry Christmas from SweaterDoll!
