On Friday (December 9th) we are offering a free doll clothes pattern from Cherie Peden of Ma Petite Cherie Couture. Be sure to vote today and then come back and get your copy of the winning pattern on Friday.
More About Cherie: I have been sewing since I was about 4 years old. I learned to sew at my mothers knee. I learned to sew Barbie clothes not by hand but by machine. I remember when I was about 10 seeing an outfit that my Grandmother had made for her Barbie that she had done completely by hand and thinking why would anyone take that kind of time. I learned to crochet at age 7 again under my mothers watchful eye. I also learned to knit but as crochet builds faster knitting fell the way of hand sewing I do if needed. I am the wife to a software engineer and mother to 4 daughters that I home schooled for most of their elementary years. When I am not designing and writing doll clothes patterns I work as a teachers aide in a private school.

Lost my internet connection on Thursday, so I couldn’t review or vote for the Diamond Cascade dress. Hope it won and maybe it will come up again for a vote in the near future so I can vote and get a free copy Also love the sandals shown to match.
What is the Freebie? I checked several times yesterday, and there was nothing chosen.
I know nothing about the Bitty Babies, although really cute!!!
I love the Diamond Dress and the sandals that match pretty well.
I have a perfect party dress material for this one. Very Pretty!
Thank you for the lovely surprises every Friday!!! This alone makes my day!!!!

Love the Diamond Cascade Dress best. Hope we get the pattern on Friday. Thanks. It looks like a challenge to make and sure would love to try it.
Definitely the Cascade dress. What a beautiful way to welcome the new year at a party!
I voted for the Diamond Cascade Dress. It is such a lovely dress for any dressup occasion. Any little (or older) girl would love it!!!
I love the Cascade Dress… it is my vote. Hope I can find time to sew before Christmas. One of my little girls would love to have it to wear.
Love Button Up Beauties Outfit for babies!!!!!!!!
I voted for the crossover crochet wrap.
Hard time deciding myself; but I’m still hoping for a shoe pattern that turns out well that I’m not afraid to make.
Button up beauties!
Wow, what great choices this week. I think I am voting for the shoes. I guess a doll can’t have too many shoes can she?! LOL. Thanks for the selection this week.
Such a diverse choice this week, thank you for sharing your talent with us. I will be happy with any pattern. Now can you gift us a few more hours in each day to be able to make these doll accessories?
I like the button up beauties . They are sweet and old fashioned and fit for children.
It would be a creative change to have the crochet wrap. It looks easy. I believe a first time crocheted could have fun making this
L’ensemble robe sandale me plait beaucoup. Je vote pour l’un ou l’autre. Merci pour les beaux patrons.
I voted for the sandals. It was a hard choice. Thanks for the free pattern.
I love the bitty baby pattern
The patterns are all cute, but I vote for the Button Up Beauties Bitty Babies outfits as we have fewer options for these dolls…..and these are “extra cute”.
Thank you, Cherie, for offering such cute patterns this week for Freebie Friday. I will be happy with any one of them!
It was a toss up between the shoes and the Cascade dress – if either one wins, I’ll have to buy the other, just so I have the set.
I vote Bitty Baby Pattern: “Button-Up Beauties.” First, Bitty Baby patterns don’t get on the FF List very often and 2ndly (& most of all), that’s a really cute pattern! Well, even if it doesn’t win the FF, I’m glad that it was featured and brought to my attention! ;-}
vielen Dank für die wunderschönen Anleitungen! Ich finde das Diamond Cascade Set ganz toll!
le choix est difficile car tout me plaît bien mais je vote pour “Button Up Beauties 15” Doll Clothes" merci pour ces jolis pattrons
je vote pour diamond cascade dress superbe tobe pour noel pour ma poupée ravissant modèle amicalement paulette
I am outnumbered evidently but my vote is for the crochet wrap.lovely patterns. Thank you for the generous offers.
What fun it would be to make the Diamond Cascade dress! Thank you!
I love the Diamond Cascade dress. I hope it wins. Thank you.
The Diamond Cascade Dress please! And thank you so much for the free gift every week!
I voted for the sandals. They are so cute and will go with any outfit
I voted for the Diamond Cascade Dress. Every young girl dreams of wearing her first long, formal gown. Your patterns are all cute Cherie. Many thanks for offering a Freebie Friday pattern.
I love the Bitty twins pattern. We seldom see patterns for these dolls, plus you get 2 for1.
Oh, the Buttoned Up, please. My granddaughter just got a boy and girl bitty baby and I’d love to try making some clothes for them. Thanks again for all you do for us. ?
I’m voting for the Diamond Cascade dress! What a lovely addition to my special occasion collection. Thank you Cherie for sharing with us!!
These sandals have been on my wishlist for quite some time. Love to own the pattern and the dress pattern too.
The crossover wrap. I would like to know more about crochet for the 18in doll.
The Diamond Cascade dress gets my vote for this week, but the sandals are so cute too. It was not an easy choice as all this week’s patterns were timely with Christmas on the near horizon. I’ll have to make them all. Thanks to Cinnamon and all your designers who work so hard.
Oh the cascade dress for sure
Dress gets my vote!
I decided on the Diamond Cascade dress. Since the Christmas parties have started, the 18" dolls need to be dressed in this lovely party dress. I’m sure when finished she will look beautiful and the owner of the doll will be delighted to show her off!
I will be happy with any of the patterns. I voted for cascade dress, but love them all. Thanks for all the wonderful patterns you have shared over time.
Love the sandals! Could be dressy or casual depending on the fabric. Thank you for your generosity!
I’ll vote for the sandals this time. I need practice making shoes.
Diamond Cascade Dress, please and thank you ever so much, Cherie!!! ;)
Button up Beauties I ’d like more baby doll patterns. & this one is so cute I know I will enjoy making both of them.
I’m voting for the bitty pattern, they don’t come up often and I sew for the 9+ 15" dolls at my preschool in the various classes plus my neighbor’s granddaughter so a new and interesting Bitty pattern would be most welcome. Thanks so much for your kind offer this week.
I vote for the Button up Beauties as I’ve been waiting for a pattern for the Bitty Babies. Grandmas are sewing for their grand babies Bitty- Babies’ for the holidays and this is the perfect and versatile patterns. And a $5.99 pattern at that.
I’d love to learn to crochet and I like that the pattern is considered easy, but I voted for the shoes because I want to learn more about making shoes and I think I feel my hands cramping from holding the thread and crochet hook already! :D
Oh I would so love the Bitty Baby pattern to win this time. I am currently seeing for a new bitty going to my 3 yr old granddaughter for Christmas and this would be a great versatile pattern to add to the wardrobe. Fingers crossed and thanks as always for your generosity and the fun of the vote!
I vote for the Button Up Beauties. 2nd choice is the dress, but the Bitty Baby pattern gets my vote because my youngest granddaughter is getting a Bitty Baby for her birthday Sunday so she’ll be needing some clothes! There aren’t so many patterns for Bitty Baby.
Cascade dress is lovely.
I voted for the Diamond Cascade dress but I also love the sandals. Thanks Cherie!
Thank you for offering a free pattern this week. Such a diverse selection! I am torn between the dress and the bitty baby outfits – so different!
I voted for the Cascade Dress. I already have the perfect fabric for it. Love the shoe pattern too. Thank you for the wonderful pattern…whichever one wins. :)

I love them all but the button up cuties are for the babies and I need clothes for them also.
Love the dress! Thanks so much for your kindness
Oooh, I love the sandals! I’ve never seen any like that for an AG doll before. They’re all really nice though :) Thanks so much!
