Never underestimate the paint store. My husband bought a roll of carpet protector shat works well to copy patterns. It has a non slip backing,, resist tears, fabric like feel and drapes better than paper when creating patterns.

As someone who doesn’t drive it can make it difficult to find sewing items locally. We do have a fabric land on the outskirts of town though. I liked buying second hand clothing or clearance items to repurpose into doll clothing. Our local Goodwill has been good for finding fabric and patterns.

I mostly use recycled baby clothes for doll trims and buttons, they already match and coordinate! But for smaller dolls Newark dressmaking supplies and Nancy’s Notions have been my go to places. When desperate have been known to make my own with crochet or fimo clay (not for play with dolls ).

I was having a hard time finding small buttons and finally found them at Walmart notions. I have a hard time finding Velcro in different colors besides black, white, and beige. I thought I had seen some in red and blue but can’t remember where. I’m out of practice to sew in zippers and my fingers aren’t as limber as they were in my younger age.

I have had success finding small print cotton fabrics at a store that specializes in quilting fabrics and quilting machines. She even has a section of beach prints. A little pricey but worth it to me.

I have the hardest time finding the perfect trim to go around my shoes. Just when I have found a great supply with an awesome price they get discontinued and disappear. I tend to be real fussy about the width, color, texture, design and price as well, that may be part of my problem. he he he.

I shop for usable doll clothes fabric at thrift stores, Salvation Army and Savers locally, and on-line auctions like Shop Goodwill. Charity thrift stores are especially great – contributing to good works, and finding treasures to reuse at the same time, and at very low prices. I have found used gowns to take apart for wonderful lengths of silk and velvet, beautiful lace and notions. Old gloves are sources of fine leather for doll shoes, and used baby clothing provide tiny prints and buttons. All of these finds, plus treasure hunting and charitable giving equal good times for shopaholic, doll clothes makers.

I have shopped for doll sewing supplies over 42 years at HomeSew.com through their catalog and online. They are in Bethehem, Pa. USA. They carry mountains of tiny supplies in all quantities at reasonable prices. I can get tiny snaps and buttons in bulk, like a Gross Gross at excellent cost. They carry Pixie’s shoe soles now, how great is that! They carry the small zippers we love, thousands of trims, and much more.

I have the hardest time finding eyeglasses for my Feel Better Friends dolls – the bodies use 18" doll clothes made from patterns that I get from Pixie Fair, but the heads are bigger in proportion to the bodies, so typical 18" doll glasses are too small!

I shop for fabrics at Joanns as well as several custom fabric groups on FB. I tend to stay clear of clothes (at least for now) that require tiny notions as I am new to making doll clothes and not up to that skillset just yet.

I shop for Fabric at Joanns but try not to go…I walk in for 1 thing and leave with BAGS of fabric I don’t need!!! :-0
I am slightly safer ordering online. My go to is Spandex World in NY. I choose exactly what I need and no more because shipping is expensive. Of course when I am in NY, that is another story!!!

I have the hardest time finding stretch lace in a small scale that would work for 18 inch dolls. I don’t know why I can never latch on to any, but it never seems to happen. Second, with a puppy in the household, I have a hard time finding time to sew!

I have an extremely hard time finding doll notions. Living in small town expecially. I have ordered some basics online like zippers and Velcro but also being in Canada there is an extra expense of ordering from the States. Really frustrating . A lot of things I see I want to make I cannot find the supplies I need.
