When I was designing my cut and sew dolls I couldn't help but think about my own experiences as a child learning how to sew and thought that cut and sew dolls would not only be a good way to teach a young child how to hand sew but also how to teach them how to machine sew as they could be put together either way. Plus, they quickly see the results of their efforts.
So, when I was designing my cut and sew dolls I wanted to create something that would be a great sewing tool for kids as well as something that would give them a more immediate feeling of achievement. Something they could do without have to go to school and pass a final exam! Something that they could be proud of that they had created. Something to inspire them to want to learn more.
So, back in 2014 I designed my first cut and sew dolls and/or ornaments. I started small, but this quickly grew to a lot. I now have 265 cut and sew doll and/or ornaments designs. Plenty of inspiration for learning how to sew.
However, when looking at my cut and sew dolls and/or ornaments I started to think that grouping them into fat quarter sizes (21" by 18") of fabric would really be great for everyone who wanted dolls and/or ornaments by holiday, occasion, season, style, or just plain everyday use.
So, I designed 26 different cut and sew doll and/or ornament groups. If you want Christmas cut and sew dolls I have 4 groups to choose from. If you want winter seasonal snowmen I have 2 groups. If you want baby or baby shower cut and sew dolls or favors I have 3 groups to choose from, and so on and so on.
Each of the groups contains anywhere from 11 to 18 cut and sew dolls and/or ornaments. So now if you want to decorate for Halloween you have 2 groups to choose from. Each group fits on a 21" by 18" fat quarter. So, all you have to do is buy one fat quarter and you'll be able to create simple and easy Halloween cut and sew doll and/or ornament decorations.
Not only are cut and sew dolls and/or ornaments fast and easy, but they are a great way to teach kids how to sew.
I hope you like my new cut and sew doll, favor, and ornament fabric groups,which are shown below:
