American Girl and 18 Inch Crochet and Sewing Doll Pattern Links

American Girl Dolls and their 18" counterparts are popular with children and adults. Many enjoy making the clothing to share with avid collectors. Finding free and inexpensive resources for the patterns can help increase the selection without breaking the budget.

Many of these blog pages started small and quickly expanded as I found more patterns. The American Girl/18" Doll Page has experienced the same growth and requires additional space. Check out the new American Girl 18" Doll Knitting Page to find free knitting patterns.

Barbie Crochet and Sewing Free Patterns

Playing with Barbie is a tradition that spans generations. Outfitting Barbie continues to be a challenge met by parents, grandparents, and friends of children who are creative with craft making. Finding free patterns can lessen the expense, so I have been working on collecting Barbie patterns to help crafters use their skills with free patterns. What I liked about this research is Ken is not left out. Just a reminder check out the holiday sections as well. When I find holiday Barbie patterns, I include them in the holiday blogs. Read More...

This blog page has grown since it first started and has needed some reconstruction.

Update: Using Wayback I was able to recover some of the pattern links from the Barbie Boutique site, not all. It does not look as if the pictures are with the patterns. I do hope this library ends up somewhere as there are so many wonderful patterns it is a shame to see them disappear.

The Barbie Boutique Links have gone dead. I noticed them as of February 22, 2012 and am removing them. I am sad to see them go as I have found them to be wonderful not only for Barbie and her family, but as basics for other projects as well. If I find them relisted I will post the links again. Just another reminder to download the patterns that you may want for future reference.

Barbie Free Knitting Patterns can be found here.
