1. I'm new!  Where do I start?
The "Learn To Sew" bundles are designed to teach you at your own pace by learning 1 thing at a time (ex collars, sleeves, gathering, pleating) in doll scale.  These are really useful and will also let you make a bunch of clothes!

2. Are downloads instant?

Yes!  As soon as you complete your order, you'll go to a Thank-you page with links to your files.

3. I didn't download the files from the thank-you page.  How else can I get them?

    • There will be a link on your emailed order confirmation.
    • You will get a "Here are your files" email from SendOwl, my digital fulfillment service.
    • Whenever you log in to the website, your 'home page' will be a list of your orders, with links to the files in each order. 
    • If you're still having trouble, Email Me
4. What size paper do I need to print patterns?

A. Patterns should print on both A4 and Letter sized standard printer paper.  Just make sure your printer is at 100% and not set to 'shrink/enlarge to fit'

5. If I want to print at a size besides 100%?
A. That depends on your device.  Usually, there's a box that gives you print size, and all you have to do is change that number from 100% to whatever % you want.

If your phone/tablet/computer/etc doesn't have that option, print it at 100% and go to your nearest photocopier.  If you don't have a nearby print shop, try your local library (or school/work if you have access to one there).

6. What if I don't have a printer?
A. You can put your files on a phone or thumb drive and get it printed at a print shop/library too. 

I also offer print services, but it's usually cheaper to do it locally than to pay for shipping.

7. Do I need a sewing machine?
A. Nope!  Sewing machines are designed to do common sewing techniques fast, but not as precisely as hand sewing.  Since most doll seams are small, there isn't as much of a benefit to machine sewing compared to people sewing, but you can do it either way.

8. What do the 'Difficulty Levels' on patterns mean?
A. There are 4 levels:

    • Easy-good for beginner=Newbie friendly
    • Easy-good for confident beginner=Fine for someone who knows how to sew already, maybe not my-first-pattern material
    • Intermediate=Has something new sewers find hard, like collars or sleeves.  Marked with what it is, so if it's collars and you are OK with collars, you should be fine.
    • Advanced=If you try this as your first pattern you may rage quit sewing forever (kidding!)  If you're comfortable with Intermediate patterns, these will be slightly more challenging because they need extra-precision, or use tricky fabrics.
