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

American Girl October Outfit

IMG_0551It’s my American Girl Doll’s turn to pose with the mini pumpkins!

This was the first long-sleeve t-shirt I made, and I was rather pleased with the outcome!  This is the pattern I used.  I searched Google Images and found a cute little picture of Woodstock from Charlie Brown on a pumpkin surrounded by leaves to go on the front of the t-shirt.  I printed the photo on iron-on transfer paper.   images

The leggings, of course, are the free leggings pattern from SewAdollable.com.  I added about 3/4 of an inch or so to the top of the pattern to make the waistband higher on the doll’s waist.  Previously with this pattern I had noticed that the leggings didn’t come up far enough.

The scarf is from this tutorial.  The boots pattern is from here, and they were also featured in this post.  I have felt for a caramel pair of boots and also black glitter, but I haven’t gotten to them yet…
