We all love a new tote bag and now your dolly can have one too. This cute bag is perfect for using scraps that coordinate with your doll's outfit.

I love to sew. My mother taught me and I taught my two daughters. I used to make my own clothes and my children’s clothes when they were small. There was also some doll clothes sewing. When I retired I took up patchwork. I love working with all the different designs of fabrics and projects but no matter how pretty the 100% cotton fabrics are they are not the same as fashion fabrics. I started to miss the excitement of the fashion fabric.
I didn’t need to make my own clothes any more. I love my polo shirt and jeans uniform. So how could I make lots of different fashion clothes as a hobby?
I bought myself an 18” doll and started to look for patterns and ideas.
The price of the patterns available was the main trigger for me starting to design my own. This became my new hobby. The idea that I could sell my patterns evolved over time.
I love drawing and designing and sewing but I had to go the extra step and start making vector drawings of my pattern pieces and writing detailed instructions to make an inviting product.
I made a list of all the features I wanted in a doll clothes PDF pattern when I decided to publish mine.
Lots of options and variations
Pattern pieces that could be swapped between designs
Diagrams as well as photos
A filing system for the paper pieces
Landscape formatting suitable for the iPad
Portrait title page to look good in iBooks
Book marks for navigation in Adobe Reader
Lots of open space ( I saw no need to print out the instructions )
A price that reflects the potential of the digital market place
The feature I am very excited about is the swappable pattern pieces. I have started several collections where I make this possible. I haven’t seen any other pattern business do this.
A note for EU Customers
EU customers outside the UK can still purchase my patterns but you need to contact me through my email
You will need to make a payment direct to my paypal account then I will email you the pattern. This only affects residents in the European Union outside the United Kingdom.
