I love arts and crafts. I used to volunteer teach an elementary art class and love sharing tutorials for fun crafts to make with kids.

In this article you'll find many free doll clothes patterns. You'll find an image of the doll clothes item and the site address where you'll find the pattern. There are patterns for American Girl dolls, Barbie dolls, baby dolls, and more. There are crocheted items to make and knitted items to make.

To find the pattern and sewing information to make the beautiful bridal dress shown above, go to ChellyWood.com.

1. Ruffle Pants

These little ruffle pants are just the cutest. You or your little girl will definitely want these for your doll. Find the tutorial at U Create. So cute!!

2. Pinafore or Sundress

A very simple pattern for making a cute pinafore for your doll. You'll find the pattern and instructions on the Welcome to the Mouse House site. Just a change in fabric prints or colors will make the pinafore unique.

3. Overalls

Making cute overalls like the one shown above will be easy to do when you follow the instructions at The Silver Penny. You'll find the pattern there also.

4. Bikini

Just in time for the summer beach parties, comes this pattern and sewing instructions from My AG Doll Craft to make beautiful bikinis for your American Girl doll.

5. Barbie Patterns

You'll find a number of different Barbie patterns on the Janel Was Here site. These are all really cute fashions for your Barbie doll.

6. Doll Pattern Tip

Sometimes with doll patterns, especially Barbie doll patterns, it's easy to lose pieces because they are so small. This is a great tip for how to save your sanity and the pattern pieces. The tips are given at SewsNBows. I love this idea.

7. How to Make a No-Sew Doll Dress

8. Pajamas

Will it be easier to get your little angel ready for bed if she can dress her doll in pajamas also? Anything is worth a try if bedtime can be made easier. The pattern and sewing instructions for making these pajamas is found at All Things With Purpose.

9. Crocheted Sweater and Cap

I'm going to have to try my hand at making this sweater and cap for my granddaughter who has an American Girl doll. This is so cute and doesn't look to be too difficult to make. You'll find pictures and directions at Grateful Prayer Thankful Heart.

10. Baby Doll Bib and Dress

When you go to Bee in My Bonnet you'll see how she made this cute outfit. On her blog she sends you to a different site for the patterns, but I like the way she made an outfit out of the two patterns.

11. Leggings

On this site, About: Miniatures you can find information on how to make your own patterns, for any sized doll. Otherwise, use a trouser pattern, that fits your doll, to make the leggings.

12. Fleece Hats

Fleece is probably one of the easiest fabrics to work with because the seams don't ravel. So, making fleece hats will be a breeze when following the tutorial at The Tip Toe Fairy.

13. Hospital Gown

Of course, you don't want your dolly to get sick and need to go to the hospital, but if it happens make sure she's there in style wearing this hospital gown. Find the pattern and instructions for making this hospital gown at My AG Doll Craft.

14. Parka

Boy, I love this parka and would love to make it for my granddaughters American Girl Doll, Emily. I'll use the pattern and instructions at A Pinch of Joy when I have the right fabric to make it.

15. Chef Set

Do you like to have help in the kitchen? Prepare your favorite doll to help you by making her this chef set. The tutorial and patterns are found at Daydream Doll Boutique.

16. Headbands

Headbands are so easy to make that your favorite doll can have one for each of her stylish outfits. The instructions for making these headbands are found at American Girl Fan.

17. Fluffy Scarf

You'll love making doll clothes using fleece because you don't have to hem any seams. This especially cute fluffy scarf is so very easy to make. Find the instructions for making this beautiful scarf at American Girl Fan.

18. Fleece Poncho

You couldn't find an easier, or cuter, poncho to make for your doll. Easy enough to make for any sized doll without a pattern. To make this American Girl poncho, find the tutorial at AG Doll Play. A really great tutorial that has lots of pictures.

19. Barbie Wardrobe

Emby Quinn has patterns and sewing instructions for making about nine different Barbie clothing pieces. Use all your fabric scraps to make beautiful Barbie clothes.

20. Doll Panties Pattern

If you've ever priced doll panties, you'll notice they cost almost as much as little girls panties. Use left over knitted fabric or outgrown t-shirts to make cute little doll panties. Find a pattern and instructions for making doll panties at Make It & Love It.

21. Dress Pattern

If I understand right, patterns that fit an American Girl doll will also fit dolls like Madame Alexander and other 18" dolls. The pattern and sewing instructions for making this dress is found on the My Cup Overflows site.

22. Shirt and Pants

When you go to the Susan Kramer site for the pattern and instructions for making this shirt and pants, be sure to notice all the other free patterns she has also. A very useful site for all doll clothes makers.
