Welcome to Sewing City!

Welcome to Sewing City!

Here at Shiny Happy World we sew dolls and stuffed animals. We also sew clothing – but only clothing for dolls. 😁

On this page you’ll find a roadmap to everything about sewing.

Try Before You Buy

Want to see if you like my teaching style before you buy a pattern? Click here to find a bunch of free sewing patterns. I recommend starting with this easy teddy bear. He’s SUPER popular!

Shop for Patterns

Every single pattern (including the free ones) include links to tutorials teaching every skill you’ll need to make that project. That means every pattern is really a workshop! Jump in anywhere and pause to watch any tutorials you need as you go.

The Dress Up Bunch are are collection of dolls that all have the same body shape – so they can all share clothes!

Shop for doll patterns here and patterns for clothing and accessories here.

Shop for other stuffed animal patterns and soft toys here.

Share Your Creations!

We have a private Facebook group here called Shiny Happy People. It really is the nicest bunch of people you can imagine, and the group is a great pace to share photos of your finished projects, ask questions, and more.
