Dolly Purse Freebie

The dress pattern can be found in this book: Sew the Contemporary Wardrobe for 18-Inch Dolls. It's worth it to buy the book, there are a ton of basic patterns that you can embellish. The dress pattern I used didn't have the gathered bodice or the belt loops. An easy addition!

The shirt pattern is free at Liberty Jane Patterns

I created the purse pattern. You can download it for free: pattern, instructions.

Please join our flickr group and upload pictures of your Dolly Purse or any other Finding Pins and Needles projects. I'd love to see them!

  1. Just got some canvas that you can have. Maybe you can make a purse or gym shoes?

  2. Doll Storage for Clothes
    Use a pull piece of luggage (can be purchased at a thrift store). Drill a hole on each side of the handle on the top. Put a 1 3/4 or 2” eye-screw (which can be purchased at any local hardware store) thru one hole. (I put a locking nut on the top and a regular nut on the inside.) Put a piece of dowel (that has been cut to fit the inside) thru the hole in the eye-screw and then put the 2nd eye-screw on the dowel. This is the hard part – getting the 2nd eye-screw thru the top. (I hammered mine in.) Tighten down the lock nut. Your wardrobe holder is ready to use. The doll can be put in the zipper on the outside for transportation.

    I can send pictures if anyone is interested.
