Sewing For the Dolls...


You know it's been too long since your last post when Blogger requires you to re-sign in. And then I wasn't sure I remembered my password. That is pretty sad folks!!! Nothing major going on here to prevent me from blogging....I've just been enjoying the little ones and not sewing too much the past few weeks.

The week before Christmas I did get these cute little blue scrubs made for Elisabeth's doll. This was the only 18" doll item that she asked me to make her this year. She specifically wanted "blue scrubs" for her doll. I lucked out because I was able to use the scraps leftover from her Pippi outfit.


I'm not the only one that's been stitching up some doll clothes. The picture above shows some of Emily's work. She made the skirt a few weeks back using her own pattern and then she made the t-shirt the other night using an old t-shirt from her dad. She is SO good with sewing now that she requires no supervision on my part. She even put velcro up the back of the shirt...again without any help from me. Not that I "wouldn't" help her....she just is capable and competent and didn't need any help. I think she is planning to make more soon! She did a great job. She also crocheted a cute little shirt to match this skirt....I'll have to get a picture of it too.

Hope you all are enjoying the new year!!!!

Bravo to the "little" seamstress! Somethings are just a little more important than blogging... but glad to read another post all the same!
