Kidz n Cats Pajamas

I made some pajamas for my Kidz n Cats doll!  They are more cold weather pajamas, so they will mostly be put away until fall.IMG_2650

I used fabric from a regular pajama top.  For the doll top, I used the free Pixie Faire t-shirt pattern for Kidz dolls.  I lengthened the short sleeves included in the pattern.  I also added ribbing to the end.IMG_2649

I used another Pixie Faire pattern (the basic pants pattern) for the pj bottoms.  I altered the pattern to be leggings for an American Girl Doll, then I changed that alteration to fit my Kidz doll.IMG_2656 IMG_2660

Triple Knot Hairstyle

This hairstyle is called the Triple Knot Hairstyle, and I learned how to do it here.  All you will need to do it on your doll is a couple bobby pins.  I use the Mini Goody pins.  Larger bobby pins may work too, however they will be harder to cover up.

This hairstyle is very easy, fast, and cute for summer!

Our Generation “Red All About It” Shoe Review

I have decided to write my first review on a pair of shoes I recently got!  The Our Generation “Red All About It” shoes are a sparkly coral-ish pink.

DSCN5074

They have a cute ribbon bows on the front, and silver metal studs all the way around.  The studs rattle a little when putting on the shoes, but it doesn’t look like they will fall out.DSCN5085I expected the shoes to have a gritty feel to them, because of the glitter.  Actually, they are quite soft to the touch.DSCN5075I have heard that some Our Generation Shoes don’t fit American Girl Dolls well.  However, these flats fit my AGs very nicely.DSCN5079I especially like these shoes because they are a unique color.

The soles are black plastic, similar in material to the soles of the purple shoes in this outfit which are from Sophia’s on Amazon.DSCN5082

Kidz n Cats Sophie with a Waterfall Headband

I think it’s fun to find hairstyles for girls, and translate them to doll hair.  This time I did a waterfall headband, which you can see the tutorial for from Cute Girl Hairstyles here.  My Sophie doll is fun to do hairstyles on because she has long, thick, soft and shiny hair.  To do this on your doll, she will probably need to have a parting wig, which means the wig does not have a sewn in part.  For example, AG Mckenna and Kailey have parting wigs.  This hairdo may also work on a low side part.

Hairdos — Redoing Curls

Today I will show you how I fix my Rebecca doll’s curls if they get messy.  I first learned how to redo her curls from this post on AmericanGirlFan.

You will need a doll hairbrush and a spray bottle.

DSCN4611DSCN4612Find the base of each individual curl, and separate it from the rest of the hair.  Spray it lightly with water, being sure not to let the water get near your dolls eyes.

Gently brush through the curl, then twist it to the left like so:
DSCN4617 Let the twist loosen up.  If the curl doesn’t look right, you can redo it or arrange it.DSCN4618Do this all around your doll’s head.  It will take time, but at the end it will look so cute!DSCN4621DSCN4622DSCN4623DSCN4619

I usually do curls like above, but you can also make larger curls by taking more hair in one curl and twisting it.

Kidz n Cats Sundress and Braid Bun Hair

I sewed up a sundress for my Kidz and Cats doll out of a shirt.  The original top already had the shirring, so all I had to do was cut a rectangle and sew a seam on one side to make a tube.  The original top also had strings, which I cut and sewed to the sundress to make a halter top style.  I made a similar dress for my American Girl Doll here.  You can read about the matching flower headband in the pictures below there as well.

For this bun, I put the headband on first.  Afterwards, I took a section on each side from near the ear and braided it.  I then had two braids on each side, and a large lock of hair in the middle.  middle section of hair I twisted up into bun, securing it as I went with bobby pins.  Once I had the bun in place, I wrapped the braids around and pinned them.

Hairdos — Two Low Braids

Two low braids are so cute for a casual summer day!  You will need a doll hairbrush, two hair ties, and a spray bottle.  Let’s get started!

Begin with your doll’s hair down.DSCN4552Spray it with water so it is very slightly damp.  Separate it into two equal sections.  I didn’t need to brush out all my doll’s curls.DSCN4553Braid the two sections, positioning the braid so it begins just behind the ear.DSCN4554Finish with a small hair tie on each side.
