Rosie's Doll Clothes Patterns Review

Growing up we didn't own a sewing machine so I was never taught to sew.  When Funny Bunny was younger, hubby bought me a basic sewing machine for Christmas and I was ecstatic!!  Of course, I still didn't know how to sew.  I did buy a few simple patterns and was able to make a few things, but  patterns are sometimes confusing, and after a couple projects, I gave up.

So Funny Bunny and I were SUPER EXCITED to receive the How to Make Doll Clothes Video Course from Rosie's Doll Clothes Patterns!!

Here's how we used it

Once logged in, we were given access to all the video tutorials and doll clothes patterns.  The videos are split into topics and divided into six weeks.  Each video lasts from 30 seconds to several minutes, depending on the topic.

As an example, Week One includes 32 videos in the following topics:

* Introduction To How To Sew Doll Clothes
* Setting Up Your Sewing Room
* Tools That Make Sewing Doll Clothes Easy
* Everything You Need To Know About Fabric
* Know Your Elastic
* How To Use Your Sewing Tools
* Cool Tips When Using Your Sewing Tools

The videos were very helpful and easy to understand.  We learned several new things and loved the Cool Tips videos!  Funny Bunny and I watched all of Week One videos and some of Week Two before she couldn't wait any longer to get started. 

Out of the 8 free patterns {Sport Shorts, Crop Top, Sarong, Halter Top, Summer Nightie, Hat, Pumpkin, and Underpants}, we decided to make the Sport Short first.  We printed out the pattern and instructions and gathered all our materials.

The videos were very helpful in completing the project, especially for those of us who are less experienced with reading patterns and sewing.  Perfect for a 10-year old!!

After cutting, pinning, and ironing, we started sewing.

Below is the final result {I think they came out pretty good}!!

We also sewed a Sarong. 

Now she is excited to move on to the next sewing project!! 

Thoughts of a 10-Year Old: Sewing the doll clothes with the help of the Rosie's Doll Clothes videos was so easy.  They came out good, and though some parts were harder than others, like the seams, they came out better then we expected them to. The videos helped a lot. The dolls like their outfits.
