A variety of fabrics are used. If you plan to purchase these patterns, you will need stretchy fabrics along with a variety of other fabrics. (complete details are included in the files.) Spandex, or a similar fabric is recommended for MOST patterns. (This is for 2 reasons, the fabric will need some stretch to it in order to fit the dolls, and some of the edges aren't finished, so spandex will look better because it won't unravel. A spandex edge is usually pretty nice and even professional clothing edges on spandex items are sometimes left raw.
Although a variety of fabrics are listed in the complete instructions and used/tested in the samples, if you don’t want to purchase all of these varieties, knits will work on almost all of the patterns.
Velcro (sew on)
Ribbon, Rickrack, any other decorations you want to glue on or sew on.
Glitter vinyl or canvas (for princess crown, or others things)
Fabri-Tac (or other good fabric glue)
Supply recommendations can be found HERE!
NOTE: some of our patterns have raw edges. Most of them can either be finished when the embroidery is done, OR some patterns call for fabric to be turned in and a gentle glue will keep that fabric turned.
Another NOTE for patterns calling for Velcro: Some machines do not like Velcro. Snaps can be used in the place of Velcro. If you chose to go this route, do a heavy fabric like duck or some sort of sturdy stabilizer for the Velcro steps. You'll attach it just like the Velcro, (like an applique). This will provide a sturdy place to attach the snaps.
Additional NOTE: For the patterns requiring Velcro, the first step will be to attach the Velcro directly to the stabilizer. Then you add a piece of fabric. After that, the other piece of Velcro will be applied to that piece of fabric. This way you'll have Velcro on one side of the fabric facing one way, and then Velcro on the other side of the fabric facing the other way. when it's done, you'll cut between the strips of Velcro, and the fabric will overlap to attach.
If you have any questions about these patterns, please don't hesitate to contat me.
