We’d love you to join in our monthly Sew-Along. This time our theme is “July Jumble Clothing Upcycle”. July is a popular month to visit yard sales, flea markets, jumble sales, op shops, and even clean out the closet.
Your fun challenge is to incorporate upcycling into your entries somehow. Have fun with it! Anyone who makes anything from an upcycled garment or other upcycled item will get **TWO** entries, as long as you tell us what you upcycled and how.

To participate in the Sew-Along, you must be a member of the Rosie’s Doll Clothes Patterns Sew and Share group. Joining is easy. Just point your browser here, answer the membership questions, and request to join. It’s a wonderful community of creative grown-ups who love to sew for dolls. Everyone will welcome you with open arms.
To be inclusive, absolutely anything and everything that you make with one of Rosie’s Doll Clothes Patterns can be entered in the Sew-Along for one chance to be chosen by the Spinning Wheel. Yes, that even includes the free Beanie or free Sewing Machine Pin Cushion! Remember that there’s a video for every Rosie’s pattern, so watch, learn, sew along, and have fun sewing and sharing.
You can use the 18 inch American Girl Doll or Cabbage Patch Kid size patterns, or you can resize those patterns to fit any doll. If you wish to alter the pattern to add your own personal twist or add a special embellishment, please feel free. These personal touches create great inspiration for others!
There’s no obligation to sew every month. You can sew one outfit or a dozen. It’s totally up to you. Each item from a Rosie’s pattern that you sew and post in the album (see instructions below) will be worth at least one entry towards the wheel spin at the end of the month.
All skill levels are welcome to join in the fun as there will be no judgement, only encouragement.
The winner of the June ’22 Sew-Along Wheel Spin is Sherrie Trudgett, who created these two outfits. April models Rosie’s Crop Top with lace trim and the Sport Shorts lengthened to long pants with elastic frill. Naya shows you Rosie’s Crop Top joined with a gathered skirt adding 2 cute little pockets and the matching Rosie’s Frill hat.
