On Friday (April 18, 2014) we'll have one of the following four patterns available for free. This week the theme is summertime sewing featuring the inspiring work of Liese Brouwer at Doll Tag Clothing.
More About Doll Tag Clothing: I am a mother of 3 living in South Africa. I come from a sewing family and started at a very young age. My mom and granny taught me everything I know. My favourite baby doll clothes I own were made by my granny... she added the most beautiful detail with lace and bullion roses. I fell in love with American Girl while travelling in the United States and couldn't wait to start sewing for her. I now have a little girl and the fun begins. I am also part of wonderful and creative family in the Hatched in Africa community. It is a place close to my heart. My mom, sister, 2 aunts and I are all part of this amazing world. I love to digitize for the embroidery machines!
