Make a simple holiday elf or santa apron for your 18 inch doll (like American Girl and other size dolls) with this easy pattern hack tutorial by Oh Sew Kat! #patternhack #holidaycraft #easychristmasapron #ohsewkat #18inchdolls

You only need the FRONT pattern piece.  This pattern hack is super easy if you just use felt, but you can certainly use other fabric and fun materials like fringe, cotton balls, jingle bells, htv, vinyl, embroidery, scraps, felt etc.  I used felt for my samples because I wanted a “no fuss” project, which is also very inexpensive and available at every craft store.

  1. You only need to print the front pattern piece.  On your paper pattern piece, measure over 1/2 inch from the center fold and draw a new fold line.  Cut off the extra 1/2 inch and use this as your new center fold line.  Cut off all of the seam allowances, top, sides, and bottom. (Especially if using felt, which does not fray.) . Draw a line across the top from where the front meets the strap, to your new fold line. This “fills” in to make a top that goes straight across.  If you like the look of the squared off front, just realize you will have to trim those edges in step 5.
  2. For the length, measure up 1/4th to 1/2 inch up from the “Cut here for ruffle” dashed line and draw a new line. Use this as your new hem line.
  3. Cut out the front pattern piece on the fold of your fabric. Do not cut into the square neckline, leave that filled in so it’s straight across the top.
  4. Using a heat and bond product, or a careful edge stitch, add a 1/2 inch wide, black ribbon across the middle to form the belt.  Trim even with the apron sides.   Add lace or a white band across the bottom, turning in each side’s raw edge by 1/4th inch.  If you want to add a Santa beard, or a pointed elf collar, cut them from felt, and bond or sew them to your apron.
  5. Enclose the top, raw edge in a 5 inch piece of bias tape and stitch.  Do the same for each straight side edge, turning the raw end of the bias tape under at the hemline. Trim to be even with the edge of the apron.  (You could also use ribbon or even fold over elastic.)
  6. Cut 2 straps (also of bias tape) 30 inches long.   Mark the center of each strap and place it at the middle of the armhole.  Place your apron in between the bias tape and pin in place, working your way out to the edges, attach the bias tape and when you sew, continue the seam from one end to the other so the strap is sewn together and the apron is sandwiched in between.
  7. Try it on your doll and trim the straps to the length you prefer with a diagonal cut. If you used bias tape, you will not need to turn in the raw edges.
  8. Using ribbon, a buckle, or glitter heat transfer vinyl, cut a one inch belt buckle and attach it to the apron.  Add buttons, bells, pom poms etc (glue or sew on) if desired.
  9. SNAP or Hook and Loop Tape VARIATION IDEA:  Cut your ties to 18 inches each.  After you finish the apron, try it on your doll and add velcro or snaps at the neck and waist, trimming off the long ties for a more fitted, easier to put on apron.

Oh Sew Kat’s Holiday Gift Guide

Looking for a few ideas for the girls, doll lovers, crafters, and seamstress (sewists) on your list?  Here are a few top picks from Oh Sew Kat!

Holiday Gift Guide for girls, doll lovers, people that sew, grandmas, and crafters! #holidaygifts #diyholidaycrafts #christmas #dolls #ohsewkat

For the Doll Lover:

Glitter Girls!! These new, smiling dolls are the exact same size as the Wellie Wishers™ dolls made by American Girl®, but you can get them for less than half the price.  There are ten different dolls to choose from and they are poseable too!!  How much fun with that be for the little girl in your life?

Make doll clothes for Glitter Girls 14 inch dolls- new posable dolls by Our Generation/Batat. Just like Wellie Wishers. Easy to sew beginner PDF sewing patterns for dolls. #glittergirls #welliewishers #ohsewkat #dollclothes #sewingpattern

A Girl for All Time Dolls:  These 16″ poseable dolls are fairly new to the doll market. They have a loyal following and wonderful stories, most of them historical.  Over time, I think you will see them more and more, not only in pattern shops, but in doll clothes shops too!

For the Crafty Gal:

cricut

I absolutely have used and love my cricut products for years and years and years.  There are just so many wonderful things you make with these electronic cutter machines from tee shirts to coffee mugs, to journals, to doll clothes.  See how I cut my doll clothes patterns with my Cricut Maker machine HERE.

For the Serious Seamstress:

These are hands down my favorite scissors.  I have four pair of them.

Every seamstress needs a good walking foot.  Be sure to find the correct one for her brand and model of sewing machines. They vary widely in price, but are well worth the extra investment, especially when sewing silky and knit fabrics.

Doll dresses are so much easier with a ruffler foot.  Again, ensure you choose the correct brand and model for her sewing machine.  This amazing tool is my favorite for skirt ruffles and for gathering doll skirts!

For the Beginning Seamstress:

This Brother sewing machine is a perfect starter machine for anyone that is new to sewing.  It’s lightweight, and strong, with a wide variety of basic stitches.

New Fabric Collections from Cricut by Riley Blake

Wow! I was blown away when I clicked over to http://www.cricut.com to see their new fabric selections!  Cricut may be my new favorite fabric store!! Take a look!

The cricut maker, their newest “power e-cutter machine” has a special rotary cutting blade that will cut your fabric for smaller projects.  With a subscription to cricut access, you will have a whole library of patterns and designs that you can make with this new, powerful machine.  I love my cricut maker.  I use it all the time to cut out my doll clothes.   You can find a basic tutorial how to that here.

It’s hard to find good fabric with the right, small scale for doll clothes.  Because cricut projects need to fit on a 12×24 mat to be cut out, they offer a large selection of beautiful, small scale fabrics.  These gorgeous stripes, a collection by Riley Blake, could not be a more perfect scale for doll sized clothing.  This is a great basic package to have on hand for many of your special projects.  Here you can see the scale of the stripes with an 18 inch doll.

I purchased the 10 inch squares (four of each color) and the fat quarter package (two of each color), but they offer strips and smaller, charm squares as well, as well as many other patterns.  The quality is exactly what I expect from Riley Blake or any high end quilt shop.

Wouldn’t Luciana make an adorable Elf on the Shelf?

I was working up some holiday ideas, specifically an apron using the Boardwalk Boutique top as a base (details coming in November), and then it struck me. Why not just use the whole outfit?  I immediately set to work and came up with these cuties!! No changes to the pattern- just add some belts, buttons, and ric rac and make some deliberate color choices.  I also think a snowman version would be adorable too!  They fit perfectly over the Jumping Jack Turtleneck Shirt or a short or long sleeve Playtime Peasant Top.

I tried the elf outfit with and without a ruffle tucked into the neckline.  Depending on the shirt you layer with it, both look cute!  Just be sure to attach the belt (I stitched black ribbon across the front and made a buckle with glitter HTV.) before you sew the side seams.

Pumpkin Doll Jumper: Boardwalk Boutique for Fall!

It’s October!!  Who else is ready for a little fall?  How cute is this jumper?  I’m calling it Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice!

18 inch doll sewing patterns by Oh Sew Kat! Boardwalk Boutique is easy and quick to sew! Free skirt pattern for 18 inch sized dolls.

I made this jumper for my 18 inch doll from the very popular summertime pattern, the Boardwalk Boutique.  Yep! It’s this one pictured below, and chances are, you may already have it in your collection.  It was one of the first Oh Sew Kat! patterns I published.  Find it in 4 different doll sizes HERE.  I didn’t make any changes to the pattern. I cut the longer top cutting line, and added the ruffle as usual. The jumper will be a little short if you tie the ties too tightly. I just pulled it down a bit and put it on over a few different shirts.

The black checked blouse, and the white top below, were both made using the Playtime Peasant Top and Twirl Skirt pattern. You can read more about it HERE.  It’s available sized for 5 different dolls in my Etsy Shop.

For the pumpkin face, I used black, glitter heat transfer vinyl (HTV, like this AD:https://amzn.to/2DHrOGx).  I cut only the face from a design in the AD: Cricut Library; it was part of my access subscription.   A quick press and this adorable jumper was done!

Gingham Peasant Dress Outfit Tutorial for Julie Albright- A BeForever Pattern Hack!

I’m really enjoying sewing for Julie Albright, the BeForever character from 1974.  I think I’m attracted to her collection because I was seven years old in 1974 and I had very similar things- like her purple coat (mine was blue) and the sneaker skates (mine were bright yellow with orange stripes).

When I saw THIS PIN, I just knew that this peasant style outfit would be easy to recreate with Oh Sew Kat! patterns.

1970s doll dress skirt and top for Julie BeForever Doll

The top is simply the Playtime Peasant Top, sewn in white with long sleeves.  For the skirt, I used the overskirt that comes in the Sugar n Spice and Everything Nice bundle.  I cut the gingham fabric skirt longer by 4 1/2 inches, but didn’t make any other changes.  Add a little lace at the bottom, and ta da! A perfect, pretty bell skirt! Add a red or gingham ribbon to complete the look.  This outfit will be perfect for the Christmas holidays!
