This is an Easy 18 Inch Doll Leggings Sewing Tutorial
This adorable pattern for leggings was created almost by accident by the talented Lindsay at Artsy Fartsy Mama.
As she was going through her daughter’s clothes, she found a few pairs of leggings that she has started to grow out of – some with holes in the knees.
She turned them into a series of really cute leggings for her 18 inch doll. Recycling sure saves money!
Make a Super Sophisticated 18 Inch Sweater Dress Tutorial
As far as free doll clothes patterns go, this is one is really innovative! I’ve made a bunch of “big people” projects using old sweaters and it’s a blast!
I plan on creating an 18 inch doll outfit project soon using old sweater scraps and of course, I’ll share.
This sweater dress is made primarily from one sleeve of a sweater, leaving the other sleeve for all kinds of other uses. It’s even more stylish when you add a belt.
You’re going to need your pinking shears for this project. What?!?! You don’t have PINKING SHEARS?!?!
Make A Stylish Boho Rag Scarf For Your 18 Inch Doll
All you have to do is be brave. Experiment. Mix and match until you find striking combinations, then start cutting strips and sewing them together.
In no time you’ll have an adorable rag scarf that your 18 inch doll can wear with lots of different outfits.
(By the way – and I kid you not – have you ever seen a Hello Kitty sewing machine? Me neither until recently. I am seriously considering getting one for my twins to share.)
