Free Doll Clothes Pattern (April 21st, 2017) Help Us Spread The Word

Hi everyone,

On Friday (April 21st) we'll have a brand new pattern free for one day only. It's brought to us by Karen Wadsworth the designer behind the popular Forever 18 Inches brand. Help us spread the word and be sure to come back to Pixie Faire on Friday and download your free copy (you can also see the details in our Friday Newsletter)!

More About Karen In Her Own Words: I've always loved dolls. My tenth birthday present from my mother was an honest-to-goodness sewing basket filled to the brim with supplies, and a Barbie pattern. I was in heaven! I sewed throughout my high school years, and then began again when my great nieces received American Girl dolls. My teenage sons were horrified that their mother was playing with dolls. During that time I also discovered Liberty Jane patterns. Wow--stylish, detailed patterns for dolls with fantastic instructions and a beautiful fit! Before I realized what was happening I was designing my own patterns. Partnering with PixieFaire as a seller and designer has been such a fun adventure! I'm grateful to those of you who have become customers and friends along the way. This pattern is my thank you to all of you--enjoy!

More Information About The New Pattern: If you love Hawaiian and Tahitian history, the Aloha Hula Accessories are for you! Hula is more than a dance--its roots are part of the foundation of Hawaiian culture and relate history, religion, love, and beauty through symbolic movement and music.

You can make an authentic grass skirt with this pattern, as well as a Lei, Wristlets and Anklets, and even a Hip Hei (Hip Belt) that imitates Ti leaves. All items are made with easily located materials that can be found in your local craft store or through on-line sources.

A sewing machine isn't needed to make these craft items--just a minimal amount of basic hand-sewing is required to gather the "Ti Leaves" for the Hip Hei. The leaves decorating the belt can also be smaller, shorter, or thinner, and simply be glued onto the belt--the choice is up to you. Make an item each night while viewing your favorite chick flick!

The pattern is designed to be paired with the Forever 18 Inches Aloha Vintage Swimsuit Top and Bloomers for an authentic historical ensemble (to be released on 4/20/17). Your doll will be ready for sun, fun, and island breezes!

 

Take a Look At The Pattern Below:

 

Be sure to leave a comment and let us know what you think of this new pattern - and be sure to thank Karen as well.

Not sure if this has been resolved, but anyone having trouble finding the link to download: I just clicked on the link inside the introduction (near the beginning) that says “Forever 18 Inches” and the pattern is there that you can click on and then add to your cart.

Thank you Karen, God Bless your big heart! How adorable! Even cutier than Molly McIntire’s Halloween costume all those years ago, remember? She had a hula skirt, red sweater, a black mask and a lay around her neck and of course a paper bag with a pumpkin on it for her treats/ and candies. This will be a fun project to do.

Karen, what a great pattern idea, and so authentic! Thank you so much for offering it on Freebie Friday. I spent part of my childhood in Hawaii and even studied the hula dance. I can honestly say this outfit truly represents the costumes we wore for performances. In my head, I’ve already added flowered gourds and bamboo sticks. Thanks again, and God bless!
