Adorable Doll Costumes

What little girl hasn’t envisioned being a princess, super hero, or even a mermaid! Make believe play with 18″ dolls dressed in costumes is a great way to foster a child’s imagination!  Joan Hinds, doll clothes designer and author of Doll Costume Dress Up, which includes 20 patterns, is my guest for this new 2-part Sewing With Nancy series.

Cute Kids Embroidery Ideas

When I design embroidery collections, I always think in terms of coordinates. Fabric coordinates make it easy to design and sew a quilt with a variety of print sizes and color combos in one collection. The same principle applies to embroidery designs—a single motif, a grouping of that same motif—large and small, or an embroidery ideal for a border. Yes, coordinates make it easy to embroider! See how the designs mix-and-match to create this wonderful gift, here.

    I miss you not being in charge anymore. I miss the free shipping-I miss the free bags with no zip locks on them anymore so you can store patterns and pieces in them without losing them-& I had to wait almost 3 weeks for an order because they were behind in the cutting room. I never had to wait that long with you. Jeanne DeSollar

    The children’s costumes reminds me of when I would sometimes use sweatpants and hoodies as a base for a costume, so cute! I still have some of them. : )

    Always love your ideas as they keep us all inspired and able to lean new techniques and enhance all of our sewing skills.! Your elephant quilt reminded me of the elephant costume that I make one of my daughters of Halloween when they were young.

    Even though I am disabled I feel free when I watch your program. You make me feel that I can do anything. I love that recently you have had usable projects that are easy to make and easy to follow. Thank you for the thirty min twice a week that I get to watch you. You talk as though your only talk to me. I realize you have been doing this for a long time, and taught even me how to sew. Keep up the GOOD WORK . Thanks for being there. NANA

    Nancy: You are always coming up with projects that we need, or want or you are inspiring us to stretch out “wings”. You keep things fresh, relevant, educational AND fun. That is no easy feat. Thank you so much. My world with Nancy Zieman is a healthier, kinder and loving environment. It is always peaceful!
