On Friday (July 28th) we will be offering a free pattern from Laurie Kwok of Jen Ashley Doll Designs. Laurie is a graduate of our Design Academy and you'll love her fun pattern collection.
More About Laurie and Jen Ashley Designs, (in her own words): I was inspired to sew at a young age by two of my aunts who sewed and crocheted every chance they had. I was impressed by the beautiful things they created for their families and themselves. One aunt taught me the basics of sewing and crocheting and how to sew doll clothes for my Barbie, Skipper, Tammy, and Pepper dolls. By the time I reached my teens, I was making clothes for myself. When my children were growing up, I made most of their dress clothes, some of their play clothes, and most of their Halloween costumes. I made several suits and sailor outfits for my two sons and matching hand smocked dresses for my daughter and her American Girl dolls. I enjoy making doll clothes for my Etsy shop, craft shows, and custom orders. I started publishing patterns with Pixie Faire in 2014. So far, I have a variety of patterns (including sports patterns) inspired by clothing children and teens wear.
Learn More About Each Pattern:
Football Pants For 18 Inch Dolls: When football season is in full swing, your doll will love having his/her own padded football pants for a game of football, flag football, or just to wear for fun.

Thanks Laurie for the cute pattern and the hard work to put it all together for us.
thanks for the free pattern
Love it! I primarily sew for H4HG dolls! So, this is a treat! Thanks so much for this cute pattern freebie!
Thank you! Saved the pattern. Perhaps someday one of my granddaughters will have a Wellie Wisher. For now, I am only making things for the 18" dolls but appreciate the free patterns.
Thanks for the freebie, though I’ll probably not use it since I only make stuff for 18" dolls.
So cute and well done! Thank you!
OH! I am so excited about the 18" FOOTBALL uniform..It is great!!!
I love the football uniform for the 18 inch dolls. I have just started to sew for the boy dolls and this football jersey and pads would be an awesome addition to my collection.
It’s 6pm Thrs & the poll for voting is CLOSED ?????
I love the Soccer uniform for the WellieWishers doll. Thank-you!
Thank you for your generosity! I’m voting for the Wellie Wisher doll pattern, they don’t come up very often and are so darn cute.
Thank you very much for offering free patterns. Keep those Wellie Wisher patterns coming!
Thank you for the lovely pattern!
Thank you for offering these patterns. I would like to get any of the 18" patterns. My preference would be the jersey and pads. Have never seen a pattern like this before.
Since I don’t have a wellie wisher doll I would prefer getting the football jersey or pants for my 18" dolls, they are so cute so either one would be awesome, if not that is okay too.
I don’t have a Wellie Wisher, but this pattern is so darn cute! I’ve been so fortunate to receive all the free AG doll patterns & I know the folks with WW dolls need some too. Thank you!
I vote for soccer uniform for wellie wishers. Absolutely adorable. Thanks for freebie Friday.
Can’t vote as I love them all and would get whichever wins! Thank you for doing this!!!!
Love the jersey since the top looks just like what my GD wore.
They’re all great patterns. I voted for the football jersey. Thank you!
The jersey would’ve AWESOME! Starting to work for a boy soon. Have b/g twins and I anticipate interactive play with each other, this way grandma can outfit BOTH!
Thank you so much for your generosity, Laurie.
You are so talented and the uniforms are SO cute. ?
Football is pretty much all we watch round here and since I’ve only 18" dolls to sew for that is my reason for choosing.
Thank you for offering the next pattern.
Soccer Uniform for Wellie Wisher Doll Please:) So Cute!
Thank you for sharing, they are great.
Really hard to choose since I like them all. Thank you for the pattern – which ever one wins.
This are very cute patterns. I voted for the football jersey and pads. Thank you for sharing these patterns for the freebie Friday. I don’t have any of these patterns so I will be pleased with which ever one wins. Thank you again.
Thank you Laurie. I recently got a Wellie wishers doll so I voted for the soccer outfit.
Thanks for offering these cool patterns. I voted for the soccer outfit.
I love the choices! Thank you :) I really hope the 18" football jersey and pads wins…I want to make a long-sleeved jersey to look like a hockey jersey so our dolls can be Lightning fans too—or pro hockey players! And the pads would be such a great touch of authenticity.
The soccer uniform gets my vote! Thank you for offering a pattern this week!
Any one is fine My customers not sports fans
I would love to have the football jersey and shoulder pads for the 18" dolls this week. Sport patterns are so acceptable to both girls and boys at this time of year with football coming back so strong in September. Thank you for offering this option in you lineup this week.
They’re all so good! But my vote is for football jersey and pads. Of course I will have to get the pants if that one wins.
Thank you, Laurie and Pixie Faire staff. These are all so cute. May God bless you for your kindness in sharing your talents.

I voted for the soccer outfit, I’m tired of sewing for the 18" dolls and could use to expand my pattern section for the h4h and Wellie wisher dolls.
I vote relaxed foot ball jersey and shoulder pads for the 18 inch doll! Thank you so much for offering these great patterns this week.
I really appreciate the Freebie Fridays. It is so nice to have a bigger pattern selection than I would have otherwise. So many are so versatile. I also voted for the 18" Football Jersey and Shoulder Pads. I need to show my grandson Lars but first, he needs more clothes.

Love the football jersey for the 18" dolls. Added bonus is the pads and the version with the long sleeves. Thank you so much for offering your designs for free
I voted for the soccer pattern. I really wanted to vote for the football jersey for 13 – 14" dolls, but I didn’t think it would fit the Wellie Wishers. :(
This was a hard one to decide! But, I think I will go with the football jersey. Football is my favorite season of the year! Thank you for the Friday Freebies, it’s the highlight of my week.
I prefer the soccer outfit.
My vote is for the football jersey and shoulder pads. My grandson plays football and I would love to make these for his sister’s doll.
Soccer Uniform for the 14.5" doll would be my pick! Thank you for Freebie Fridays! Much appreciated!
I love the jersey. My grand daughters love wearing jerseys and would love having some for their American Girl dolls too.
My daughter is a soccer player, so that’s her preference. The football jersey was a close second at our house.
I have the football bundle..I love it.
I vote for the football jersey for the 18" dolls. Just yesterday I told my daughter two of my boys would play football this fall. It is a very cute pattern.
Absolutely adorable – thank you! My vote is for the football jersey and shoulder pads – my cheerleader often wears her football jersey!
