1800s Simple Stitches Heart Warmer & Snood 18" Doll Accessory Pattern

2 reviews   |  

Flossie Potter's "1800s Simple Stitches Heart Warmer & Snood" is the PDF sewing pattern with easy-to-make accessories for its companion pattern, the "1800s Simple Stitches Dress." Both are designed to fit 18-inch dolls such as American Girl®.

The Heart Warmer is made in one piece (no seams!) and is surrounded by fringe. The two front pieces cross over your doll's heart, being true to its name!

The Snood is similar to a hair net worn at the back of the head to keep long hair in place. Both of these pieces were quite popular in the 1800s, but they've been worn in other centuries as well, making them a good choice for most of your historical dresses.

Recommended Fabrics:  cotton mesh, light-weight loosely-woven fabric such as boucle
Supplies Needed:

Heart Warmer: 1/3 yd light-weight and loosely-woven fabric such as an open-weave boucle or loomed crepe
