Sewing for Beginners

Sewing for Dolls

Sewing for dolls is something anyone with a sewing machine can do. I remember my mum sewing up a storm for my doll. There was a white dress with blue piping. I remember it so well, even though I was quite little. Sewing doll’s clothes helps you make precious memories with your kids, too but also helps you learn a multitude of techniques without the pressure of having to be ‘perfect’. They are easily sewn up with fabric rests, or even from old clothes. Old pair of jeans? Old shirt? T-shirt? Cut them up for the doll’s outfits. It will save money and be fantastic fun.

No sewing machine yet but super keen to start? Read my blog post on sewing machines, followed up with my video about my wonderful Pfaff sewing machine.

Watch the doll clothes videos on this page to see what tickles your fancy! Then take your pick here and get started.

For all beginners I would highly recommend our Facebook page and Facebook group. The group is monitored all the time, so if you have a question or are stuck, there will be someone that can help. We are an incredibly diverse group of ladies and few gents, that love sewing and support each other.
