2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Paddle Bag Project - Advice for a Newb on: August 22, 2011 08:19:03 PM
1. Sew right through that batting. Quilters have been doing it for eons.

2. I always use pins.

3. I'm not sure myself, but I would guess that what you could do is sew two sides made of outer cloth|batting|inner cloth (feel free to have the edges hanging out on that one), then put both pieces wrong sides together and bind them up with the bias tape you've got.

4. I'm pretty sure you'll be okay with a straight stitch.

Oh wow, so pretty! I love the monochrome color scheme.

A long time ago, American Girl used to make a gardening outfit for their dolls ... but it was so easy to sew, I just made my own.

That hair is wonderful. It's a good use of that yarn, too!

Joan Hinds (author of Sew the Contemporary Wardrobe for 18 Inch Dolls) sells 5 inch zippers on her site:

I think that's as short as you'll get! You can always shorten a zipper by sewing the end up and trimming the rest.

A buddy of mine customizes Monster High dolls. She's got a tutorial here:

Poke around that blog to see more pictures. You can also check out her flickr:

And, there's always this Flickr group, totally dedicated to custom Monster Highs!

I didn't make any of the dolls. Hope it helps!
