Another Doll dress done!!

This is yet another dress i have made for one of my girls for Christmas. I love how these are coming out. This one is made from fabric that i had on hand here. I am saving so much by making this and using what i have!! I can not wait to do more!!

Oh yeah, this one is hard to get on the doll. The back opening is not as big as i would like it. Gotta figure that out for the next one!!

Even More Doll Clothes!!

This is the 2nd poncho that i have made. I bought this little piece of fabric without an idea of what i was going to use it for. I had the perfect matching rick rack to go with it. This is such a simple thing to make. Probably will make more!! I think with the little piece left, i am going to make a little bag for the doll.

I found a piece of this fleece in the clearance bin. I fell in love with it and by chance found the flannel pink that matched perfect in the bin too!! It is so hard to work with the fleece on such a small thing, but it looks so adorable!! Can not wait to make more of these!!

A digital LO

I have not done a lot of digital yet but really want to and need to. I have done a lot of downloading of Freebie kits. This is one LO that i did today from last nights outing to Trunk or Treat. The kit i used for this is NitWits Can I Be Frank? collection. I love this kit. It has some really cute elements in it. This is also for a contest.

Doll Poncho!!

Okay, well, i have been a sewing fool today. I just cut out another top and pants and then had fleece left over. This is what i made of it!! I just love the little ball trim!! I can not wait till the kids go to bed tonight so that i can make some more stuff!! I am feeling very accomplished today.

More Doll Clothes!

This is a set that i made for my younger dd. She loves anything Asian. I thought this print would be perfect for her doll.

This is a holiday dress that i made. I will be making another one, so each of my dd's will have one for their dolls! I love how it came out.

I went to Joanns on Saturday all by myself and bought some pieces of fabric from their scraps bin. These are 2 of them. I have a few more and can not wait to try making some more stuff!! This is so fun, so easy and the girls will be so excited on Christmas!!
