Sewing Books

Beginning Sewing Books

Each of our sewing books provides a specific focus for a variety of skill levels, with special emphasis on beginning sewing. Patterns in our sewing books come in a range of clothing sizes and styles. Boys, girls, teachers, parents, relatives and friends will benefit from the detailed and illustrated instructions that provide many teachable moments. Make it fun and create matching outfits for your child and her favorite doll from my doll clothes patterns. In addition, I’ve included devotional books to accompany our sewing books that relates a lesson from scripture to go along with each project. It’s an incredible way to make the Bible come alive in unexplored ways. For a welcome addition, add the excellent sewing book designed for teachers to bring sewing back into the classroom as an invaluable skill. Be sure to check out our newest book on how to start a sewing business.


Dolls and Doll Clothes Patterns

My patterns and books on sewing doll clothes walk you through sewing on a smaller scale with a variety of illustrated techniques and patterns. Create an entire wardrobe sewing doll clothes for 18 inch dolls (which fit the American Girl Dolls). We also have books and patterns dedicated to making several sizes of cloth dolls in various ethnicities.
