Free Doll Clothes Pattern (Dec 30, 2016) Help Us Decide

Hi everyone,

On Friday (December 30, 2016) we'll have a free doll clothes pattern available from Jane Ruhl, the designer behind the Sweet Pea Fashions Brand

More About Jane Ruhl and Sweet Pea Fashions: Jane hails from Louisville, Kentucky. A mother of two grown daughters, Jane has been sewing and crocheting for nearly half a century. She retired from a 32-year career as a civil engineer to begin a new pastime of playing with dolls. Because of Jane’s engineering background, she brings problem-solving aptitude and a visual style to her patterns. You will always find lots of photos and illustrations in her patterns, ensuring that you will have success the first time you make them.

Help us decide which one of these fun patterns should be free by voting below. Then come back to Pixie Faire on Friday to see which pattern won and get the free download.

Vote Now:

Here is more information about each pattern:

 

The Crocheted Shawl Collar Vest Designed To Fit 18 Inch Dolls: If you can crochet a rectangle, then you can make this fashionable shawl collar vest. The vest is worked from left to right around the body. The collar is added by starting at the bottom front, working from side to side, around the neck and back to the bottom front. There is very little sewing in this PDF pattern; only the shoulder seams. It is worked in lightweight yarn to give it a beautiful drape. Baby and sock yarns are ideal. Sock yarn comes in solid colors, but also in many gorgeous self-striping varieties. Recommended Fabrics:  Sock or fingering yarn, any fiber.

Straw Cowboy Hat Clochet Pattern Designed To Fit 18 Inch Dolls: Get ready to crochet your little cowgirl the perfect hat with this PDF pattern from Sweet Pea Fashions!  The hat can be crocheted in synthetic raffia to look like straw, in cotton, or in any medium weight yarn.  It is very easy, worked all in single crochet, and would be an excellent beginner project.  It can be left plain, or decorated with a hat band, buckles, buttons, or feathers.

The Elena Crocheted Slip-Ons Designed To Fit 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl: The Elena PDF Shoe Pattern will help you create an adorable crocheted slip-on shoe for your 18" doll.  The top features a crocheted lattice, perfect for pairing with summery fashions.  The top of the shoe is crocheted in two simple pieces that are sewn together. It is then sewn to a prepared insole, and glued to the outer sole. 

The Ribbed Neck Ripple Poncho and Hat Designed To Fit 18 Inch Dolls: This is an easy poncho PDF crochet pattern, designed to slip over the doll’s head without difficulty. The ribbed neck is worked first in rows. The rows are joined into a circle, and then the body of the poncho is worked in rounds. The coordinating hat is quick and simple. Make them striped, and this becomes a great project for using up odds and ends of yarn!

Recommended Fabrics:  All kinds of yarn

I have several shawl patterns for my dolls, so I do not need another.
I choose the collared crocheted vest. If it does not have pockets, i will have to
add them to the pattern. My dolls need pockets@@!!! they are so essential to a
sweater, vest, and/or jacket.

Hey girls! you can learn how to knit or crochet by visiting You Tube, or any one of the crochet/knit places out there in computer land. it is very easy to do. You just have to sit down and concentrate on each stitch you are making. it will be a breeze for most of you. GO GET ’EM TIGERS!!!!!

It’s been years since I crocheted! (I suspect my mom taught me a basic stitch to keep me busy for a while- she never followed up with any more.) This might be a great New Year’s Resolution: learn how to crochet enough to finish this project! I think the poncho is really cute, but the vest looks easier to make. Thank you for offering a free pattern this week and I’ll try to tackle which ever one wins!

A difficult decision, but I am in love with the little poncho. I just finished a capelet for myself and my granddaughter said she wanted one too. With this pattern I could make her doll a poncho and then make a matching one for her. Wouldn’t that be cute? Rita

I’m a knitter and crocheter so I’m excited to see crochet patterns offered. I already have the shoes so it’s a toss up between the cowboy hat and the vest. So difficult to choose. I guess I’ll pick the cowboy hat this time and will have to check out some cowboy boots to go with it if it wins. Cowboy hat for me!!
