Free Tutorial Fleece Ear and Neck Warmers for 18 inch dolls

Free Tutorial Ear and Neck warmers SuzyMStudio

Hi Everyone! It’s cold and beautiful outside!                                                                        I just finished this set for my doll to share with you. A very cozy ear and neck warmer tutorial for this season.                                                                                                  You are going to need about half a yard of fleece, matching thread, snaps and felt buttons.                                                                                                                                       I am using a conventional sewing machine with polyester thread and a stretch or ball point needle. I also adjusted the sewing machine to medium tension and medium stitches length.                                                                                                                                      Note: This tutorial was designed for fleece fabric, if you try another fabric you may need to make some adjustments. For good results, cut the pattern on the grain line marked on the graphics.                                                                                                           Happy sewing!

  2. I am having trouble opening the pattern, I just get a bunch of numbers. Is there still a pattern for this, it is so cute, and I just bought my Granddaughter the 18″ doll.

  3. Hi! I’m not sure if you still monitor this site but I am wondering what you mean by the right grain line for the headband and scarf… it with the stretch or not? Thanks!
