Good afternoon and Happy New Year readers! T.K. here to tell you all about a great group of ladies making dreams come true for little girls. Ladies and gentlemen: The Pixie Faire Company!
Not long ago, I was searching for simple free patterns for the popular 18 inch dolls. Now these aren't hard to find, but I ran across a particular company, a collective of designers going under the name Pixie Faire. Think of Pixie Faire as like Ravelry for doll clothes. So I found their free patterns section and discovered that not only did they have clothes for the 18 inch dolls, but they had patterns for bedding, shoes, and all sorts of other garments for them. AND not just the 18 inch dolls, they also had baby dolls, other large fashion dolls, Barbie, Monster High, Ever After High, and many other lesser known dolls.
Not everything is free, the free patterns are really just a small section of the website, but it's just a taste of the great stuff they offer that brings you back for more. The patterns are inexpensive and come as an instant download, like Ravelry, you can also sign up for their free newsletter, where they give away a new pattern every week. Pixie Faire also sells doll sized notions, shoe soles, and even cloth kits, all for a fraction of the cost of the clothes from primium companies like American Girl. In addition, Pixie Faire is an exlusive outlet for several doll brands such as Britian's A Girl for All Time and the Hearts for Hearts Girls, a collection where a portion of the proceeds goes to support World Vision. So pretty!
Now on to the good stuff, Patterns! This first one isn't free, but I love it anyway. The Bohemian Beauty Maxi dress fits both standard Ever After High and Monster High dolls. I haven't made it yet, but I am really looking forward to it.
For crocheters, we have this trendy slouchy cap. Perfect for the fashion concious doll, and best of all, it's free!
Next we have a free pattern for making a t shirt for 18 inch dolls, which is made in four peices, but you could make it sleeveless and then you could do three peices!
Here's a swimsuit for 18 inch dolls. A few strech fabric remnants, and ba-da-bing, a swimsuit you don't need to give a kidney for.
Then we have the more unique dolls. We have free t-shirts for the Girl for All Time and Hearts for Hearts Girls,
and of course Barbie!
Pixie Faire also offers cool free crafts like these DIY doll books. So awesome! I'm making some for my photo prop collection this afternoon. Great for those winter break bordom busters. You can even get patterns for girl and doll dresses from the ladies at Pixie Faire!
If you knit, crochet, or sew, please give Pixie Faire a look-see, you won't be disappointed!
