What My Dolls are Wearing Today!

I’m excited to show you what my dolls are wearing today!

IMG_2562 My Rebecca doll is wearing lovely outfit with many different colors, and my other AG doll is wearing a Frozen inspired outfit.  All items, except the shoes, are made by me.

You can see how I made the shirt here, and how I made the shorts here.

Sparkly headband (see here) and shoes (from American Fashion World on Amazon.com) contribute to the “frozen” theme.IMG_2550IMG_2557

For this outfit, the post featuring the t-shirt is here (since the post I have added a rhinestone flower to the front), and the leggings here.

Swimming at the Beach — A Photoshoot

Recently I picked up a cute girl’s swimsuit to upcycled into a doll swimsuit.  It was my first time making a swimsuit using my sewing machine, so my dolls get to keep this one!

The swim fabric has pairs of flip flops on it in many different colors.  I used the free swimsuit pattern on Pixie Faire here.  I didn’t fold the fabric twice over, just used the lining that was already in the girl’s swimsuit.  I used white fold over elastic to finish the edges.

The blue shorts I upcycled from a girl’s rashgaurd.  I used this pattern on Pixie Faire.  These shorts are super quick and you don’t even need elastic!

I got the pink little water shoes from Sophia’s.  You can see them here.  I did realize they have cardboard insoles which came unglued when they got wet.  I will probably cut new insoles from craft foam and put them in the shoe instead.

You can read how I made the flower hair clip here.

On to the photos!

One Year!

I have been posting about dolls for a year!  I made my first blog post about American Girl dolls on April 27, 2014.  You can see it here.

This year I have acquired a few new dolls.  I have also learned a lot!  I started out hand stitching everything.  In September of 2014, I got a sewing machine and learned how to use it to create fun clothes for my dolls.  Recently in March I decided to not only create fun clothes for my dolls, but to offer the clothes to others too through my Etsy shop!

By doing research, looking at other blogs and Etsy shops, I have also learned about doll photography and photography in general.

I put some clothes on my AG dolls that I made around this time last year and took some pictures.  All of the items are upcycled and hand-sewn.

I have had a great time blogging, reading other doll blogs, sewing, crafting and photographing my dolls this year!
