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

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.

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.

Day 2: Easter Eggs and Holder

Easter eggs!  I used white Sculpey Polymer Clay to make these eggs.

First I rolled a some clay into a small ball.

DSCN3276I shaped the ball into an egg shape by rolling the circle in my hand, but doing it more on one half of the circle than on the other.

DSCN3277 I made seven of these and baked them.  They took about 45 minutes to bake.

DSCN3279

After the eggs were baked, I used them to make the holder.  I formed the clay into a rectangle, about 3/8 of an inch thick.  I placed the egg on the rectangle and squished it down.
DSCN3283I did this eight times.  Squishing the clay around with the eggs distorted the original rectangle, so before I baked the holder I  smoothed everything out and corrected the edges.  The holder took about an hour to bake.
DSCN3286

Once everything was baked, I mixed together some acrylic paint and painted the eggs each a different color.  I painted the holder brown.

Finished product!

American Girl Doll Shoulder Bag

I made this little shoulder bag using this tutorial.  I found this tutorial, and had to try it because it seemed quick and simple.  Overall it was quick and simple, although the top stitching and strap attachment was a little tedious.

IMG_1908I used some scraps of cotton fabric in purple floral for the outside of the bag.  The lining and strap are a silver cotton with glitter and tiny dots.  My sewing machine has 100 different stitches, most of which I have never tried.  I decided to do some experimentation.  I sewed a tulip/flower stitch along the front of the bag, as well as on the strap.  It’s hard to see because of the thread color, but I like the overall effect.IMG_1911 IMG_1913

So I can better know what my viewers like to see, share your opinion by picking a choice below!

Boy Doll Striped Zip-Up Hoodie

I up-cycled this hoodie from a human boy hoodie, and made it almost identical to the big version!  I altered this pattern, using Sweatshirt F.  I used the back pattern pieces as the front.

The back of the hoodie.  The hoodie has a point sort of shape to it, so when it is on the doll’s head it looks like an elf coat or something 🙂IMG_1834
