Orange Leggings and Blue Leggings for American Girl Doll

My blog count has reached 7,000 views!

Leggings are super fun and cute to sew up!  To make these pairs of pajama leggings, I used this pattern from Sew Adollable.  I lengthened the legs to be ankle length, as well as cut a little bit more to be higher on the waist.  I made both of these pairs from human t-shirts.  The orange pair is a bit more of a stiff knit than the blue striped which are softer and stretchier.

Graphic Tees for AG Dolls: Mickey, Charlie Brown and Toy Story

I decided I would shoot pictures of and post some graphic tees that I haven’t blogged about yet!

DSCN3056The first is this Charlie Brown raglan t-shirt upcycled from a regular long sleeve t-shirt.  I used the Pixie Faire Baseball Tee pattern which I got for free on a previous Freebie Friday.  It’s Freebie Friday today over at Pixie Faire, and the free pattern today is the Schoolgirl Dress by Melody Valerie Couture.  I thought using the baseball t-shirt pattern would go well with the fact that Charlie Brown (on the shirt) is wearing his baseball cap.

It was my first time using this pattern, and I believe it would be better made with a stretchier knit fabric.  Some areas of the tee are a little tight.

One of the great things about upcycling old t-shirts is the graphics printed onto the fabric!  I enjoy reusing graphics on human t-shirts to give my dolls something fun to wear.  This Mickey t-shirt is one such project!  The pattern I used was the free Pixie Faire Trendy T-shirt pattern.

This Toy Story t-shirt is also upcycled.  I made it from the same human shirt as this Buzz Lightyear Tee I posted previously.  I used this pattern from Simply Sweet and Sewn.  This t-shirt goes together a little easier than the Pixie Faire tee, because the sleeves and the main pieces are already attached instead of cut separately.5 The longer sleeved t-shirt can be worn by a boy too!1
