Tools Of The Trade: Sewing & Others For 1/12 Scale Today I am going to show you the Sewing Box. Within this sewing box I have the various sewing items based on the sewing I do most. Let's talk about the items and what I like about mine and you can decide about your own.

What I'm Working on Now. This is my documentation of a new project I just completed yesterday. It's my first attempt at T.R. pattern making which is a little known Japanese pattern making technique. T.R. stands for "Transformation Reconstruction" and is completely unlike traditional methods. It involves free-hand sketching on the muslin, & cutting up your own design (eep!)

Open Parasol Tutorial Step 1 Cut out the pattern using the fabric you have selected. Trim the top raw edge with lace or others fine trim. I have used lace for this sample. Tip: pull the slightly heavy thread in the header of the lace to gather. DIY Doll Wristwatch & Doll Props Here's how you can make a truly realistic looking wristwatch for any doll, no matter what the size or composition: Mini Wristwatch Supplies needed: .

Free Clothes Patterns Posted on | October 9, 2008 | 7 Comments I originally became interested in patternless sewing, many years ago, because I had a hard time finding patterns in my size. Nowadays, patterns in large sizes abound. Nonetheless, I still love my pattern free sewing.

MY DOLL BEST FRIEND: Halloween Witchy Tutu Outfit At Poundworld I found these stripy leg warmers and a Halloween 'Terrifying Tutu Costume' which is really just a cute double layer net skirt and is not that terrifying at all! So here's what I made for witchy Gotz Julia for £2. What you will need: A Terrifying Tutu Costume (or another black tutu) Stripy leg warmers Needle Measuring & Fitting Doll Clothes Patterns NOTE: Book recommended for beginning sewers. It contains a lot of basic sewing/fitting techniques, terms, basic fabric/thread information, hints on buying a sewing machine/serger, etc. The book is: "Mother Pletsch's Painless Sewing - Fourth Edition" and can be ordered on the Palmer/Pletsch website (click here). These notes are primarily aimed at measuring and fitting dolls. However, I have put in some references to human (and human pattern) measurements for comparison and to use when working with a human pattern to create a doll pattern ---- (see Pattern Creation Page). *NOTE: I will not be covering how to make pattern alterations for individual body differences as it would take an entire book!

Make Your Own Damn Bras I got sick of waiting to go to Spotlight to buy a good bra pattern, I decided to DIY! This is good if you do not have a very large bust. I'm a 12C-ish, and this tutorial shows you how to make a basic padded bra. You can easily add underwiring, which - when I get some - I will add to this tute on how to put that in as well. I am going to buy a bra pattern, and give that a test run too, the most widely reviewed one that seems to be good is Kwik Sew 3300, so hopefully I can pick that up tonight as well as some bra-making supplies. You're probably wondering why on earth I am making my own damn bras?
