We’d love you to join in our monthly Sew-Along. This time our theme is “September Socks and Shoes”. Thanks so much to Joyce Moore for suggesting this topic!
Your fun challenge is to make some shoes with Rosie’s Doll Clothes Pattern’s 3 Way Shoe pattern, or make something for your dolls out of socks using some of the tips available on Rosie’s blog:
- Peggy Shows How to Make a Doll Dress from a Knee Sock
- An Easy Way to Turn a Sock into a Pair of Doll Tights
- Peggy Shows How to Make a Doll Clothes Top from a Ladies Sock
- A Simple Way to Make a Pair of Doll Socks for Your Doll from a Ladies Sock
- Peggy Shows How to Make a Pair of Doll Clothes Underpants from a Ladies Sock
Have fun with it! Anyone who makes any kind of shoes from the 3 Way Shoe Pattern, or makes something out of socks using one of Rosie’s blog tips gets **TWO** entries, as long as you post a picture and share a little bit about how you accomplished creating your project. Other garments get one entry.

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 August ’22 Sew-Along Wheel Spin is Diane Davis, who created this outfit for her Wellie Wisher Bryant doll for our uniform challenge. Diane used Rosie’s Winter Pyjamas pattern. Diane says, “I used the recommended 65% reduction and additional inches to the pants as per the website. Always comes out great. I do however also add a little to the front facing.”
