Sewing Lessons and Tutorials

Here you’ll find all the free sewing lessons and tutorials. They’re arranged by subject so you can work your way through the lessons in a systematic way.

There are some general sewing lessons, but most of these tutorials are specific to sewing dolls, doll clothes, and stuffed animals.

Remember – all Shiny Happy World patterns have links to all the tutorials you need right in the pattern. You can purchase any pattern and work through it like a workshop.
