SSP-049: Mix'n'Match - A sewing pattern for Kaye Wiggs dolls.


A new pattern from Raccoon's Rags.  This is full of smaller projects, each of which can be whipped up in an an afternoon. .. even sewing by hand, I've found.



*Available in my Etsy shop:

And right here on the blog: (PayPal shopping cart)


£6.99





My Craftsy store:

On CD disc from Ebay: (No VAT payable, and no charge for the CD itself, just postage.)

If you wish to buy directly from me,  I can supply a PayPal invoice and email the pattern to you within 24 hours of payment.  Usually it will be faster than that, I'm just allowing for the potential differences in time zones.  

Email for a PayPal invoice:

If you do buy from me by email, and you live in the EU, the rules state that I don't have to charge you VAT as it's a direct sale.  So I won't.

Price without VAT is £6.99.

*Etsy will charge EU customers VAT (This does not affect America or other non-EU countries).  I always recommend people to look in my Craftsy store anyway, as the prices fluctuate, due to the international exchange rates.  I always recommend comparing prices.




The photos are self-explanatory, but to add a few points:  The piecework gloves and leggings can easily be shortened by leaving out the top one or two components, or lengthened by adding one or two strips.




Obviously, leggings and gloves can be worn to suit your dolly's mood.

The hat is a slouch beanie, but can be worn as a sort of cloche.  Layla's ears make it tricky to pull the hat right down, but it does look cute on the human dolls where the ears don't get in the way.



The tights for the MSD size are new and previously unpublished, and I decided to throw in the Mei Mei tights from SSP-043 as an added bonus.

The hat pieces give clear instructions for different head sizes.  I've based my measurements on Layla and Gracie, but for slightly different heads to these, the hats are very stretchy, so will be fine on most head sizes.  (Sizes over wigs are given in the instructions.)

As well as the shabby chic piecework gloves and leggings, here are the plain versions:




Gracie looks a bit shell-shocked.  Maybe she wasn't quite ready...


The tights themselves can easily be chopped short to make socks or tights.  It's a fun and versatile pattern, if you're making an outfit and just want that little extra something to compliment it.

So next, yes.  I really REALLY will make a pattern for Ellowyne.  I keep leaping around from one thing to another, and end up just settling on whatever catches my interest.
