When I was a little girl, my mom used to make some clothing for my Barbies. I felt special to have these since they were unique and you couldn’t buy them in the store. When my daughter was still playing with Barbies, I couldn’t believe what they wanted to charge for just one outfit. I could buy an entire outfit for myself for the price! Making Barbie clothes is so easy and it can practically be free since you can use up your sewing scraps to do it most of the time. Making these clothes can be awesome for gift giving and for teaching the basics of sewing to your child. Here are free barbie sewing patterns to get you started.
