Diy American Girl Doll Dress With four little kids at home the majority of projects on my list are for them and I don't mind, it just doesn't give my little blog much variety. This is what we made yesterday...my girl's have been wanting to get matching clothes for them and their doll's. They see all the fancy outfits in the American Girl Magazine and they are a little out of our price range so we came up with this. We made this red gingham dress a couple years ago for my little girl after she had been watching Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and loved the dress Milly wore at the Barn Raising...you know! Oh you don't, well it's only the best show ever and my very favorite growing up. This was my favorite part! So now she and her doll can dress up like Milly and go on all kinds of adventures together. We added a little bow just to give it a little extra somethin, somethin! It went together fairly quickly considering it was the first doll dress I have ever sewn. I used the same fabric for the lining.
The Katie Dress Pattern October 7, 2010 My oldest niece turned 7 in August and decided that for her birthday she wanted an American Girl doll. I wanted to help celebrate her great new doll and thought clothes would be the perfect gift. What does a girl love more than clothes? An Internet search for patterns left me empty handed. So to honor my sweet niece, I named my first dress pattern after her. As a kid, I hated that my doll clothes closed with velcro. And sweet rick rack details. Or, if you prefer, piping! These dresses are amazingly simple to construct. To print the pattern pieces correctly, set your margins to 0 and print. CLICK HERE to download the free pattern! Like this: Like Loading...

18" Doll Pillowcase Dress Tutorial To Fit AG Dolls Anny's Corner Samantha is Ready for Spring One of my most favorite things I used to do was to make patterns and create designs for my daughters dolls. Out of necessity, I sewed doll clothing through designer children's shops and craft fairs to help the budget. Now with time and two granddaughters I am returning to my roots. Last night I created this outfit and with it will begin my creating kidstuff blog. I created this for my granddaughters and to share for others to sew for their wee ones. What do you need?

American Girl Sundress Tutorial If you happen to be the happy owner of an American Girl doll you will agree with me that they are huge money traps. Oh, do they know how to appeal to young girls (and mothers living vicariously through their daughters!). However, you can spend mere dollars on cute little dresses, and save your cash for clothing purchases that actual humans will wear. ;o) I'm going to attempt a tutorial of how you can make a dress without having to purchase a pattern. What you need: --1/4 yard of fabric (you can use a fat quarter, but you'll have to shave a few inches off the width of the dress skirt--I've done it both ways, and it doesn't make a whole lot of difference) --coordinating thread --any extra trimmings/ribbons you might want to add --velcro/snaps/your choice of fastener--but you can skip this altogether --sewing machine, fabric scissors, pins, needle for hand-gathering, ruler Cutting: Spread out your 1/4 yard of fabric and measure an 8 inch by 24 inch rectangle--this will be the skirt. Cut that out.

Basic Dress Pattern For AG Dolls American Girl doll clothes can be tricky. Buying clothes from their official website can be fun, but pricey! Man, they can really get you with all those adorable little accessories. Everything is so small and cute...and expensive!

Now that I have a little girl who is interested in all things American Girl, I have given her a doll I triumphantly discovered at a garage sale for 25 Cents, as well as the doll my parents purchased for me as a child. Now, for the first time, I am pulling out the very pattern my mom used years ago, to create some dresses for my daughter.

How To Transfer Doll Clothing Patterns | Sews N Bows My favorite way to bust my fabric stash is making doll clothes. Barbie clothes help get rid of even itty bitty pieces! But tiny paper pattern pieces get torn up quickly, especially if you use them often like I do. So to keep my patterns intact, I transfer them to poster board. First, I lay the pieces out on my copy machine… No need to cut them out, just a trim will do :) Doll patterns often have piece names and instructions outside the pattern piece. So cut the patten piece out, then use a glue stick to glue it to the poster board. If the piece is too small, or if its easier for you than glueing, just write the instructions on the back. Here’s my favorite part. Guess what? I’ve made two sets of wintery themed pajamas for the brats…I’ll post them soon. Also, I have a pattern review for an easy hand bag in the works. And really- I really will get you a photo of Pattern Alteration Attempt II- my second go at this weeks earlier post, Pullover Vs. I know I’m getting lazy with my photos again.
Moist Chocolate-Beet Cake It’s interesting reading some of the talk regarding if the internet is ready to replace cookbooks. Sure, there are people furiously clicking around wherever they can for a chocolate cake recipe. And there are hundreds of thousands of chocolate cake recipes that you can find using a search engine. But to me, that’s not enough. I want to know why someone chose that recipe, what twists they gave it, what made the cake or casserole they were making so special to them that they wanted to share it. When I had dinner with my publisher last spring in San Francisco, we talked about cookbooks, of course. Perhaps the internet does make searching, and researching, easier, but it saddens me to see the large aggregator sites simply repositioning content all in the hopes of making a buck, just to create a profitable database. I read cookbooks and I read blogs (and write both), and the ones that catch my fancy nowadays are ones with an author’s voice in there. Related Recipes German Chocolate Cupcakes
