My daughter got an American Girl Doll knock-off for Christmas (because there is no way I’m spending $100 for a doll! No way!). Her doll is from Toys R Us. It’s a Journey Girl Doll, and I actually think she is prettier than the AG Dolls.
This was by far the best gift of Christmas. My daughter told me, “Mom! It’s like a present for you and for me!” Ha! We are having fun together. Making little doll clothes is a blast. And it’s a great way to use up all the little pieces of fabric that are overflowing in my craft room.
So here’s what I’ve been up to…
Because every girl needs the basics, I started with a t-shirt and jeans.
I finished off the outfit with a little t-shirt flower headband. The headband has a little velcro circle on it so I can change out the flower to match other outfits.
I also made a denim skirt. It was the easiest thing ever! I just cut the bottom off a pair of kid jeans that had holes in the knees and added elastic at the top. Isn’t it cute?
The last thing for today is this little floral skirt:
It’s just a long rectangle of fabric sewn together with elastic at the waist. Oh, and a few little pleats. And the glasses? They are from Michael’s. For $2 (with a coupon) we just couldn’t resist them!
I plan to make several more t-shirts to mix-and-match with the denim items. And accessories. Lots of accessories.
