American Girl Doll Flower Hair Clip

There is snow on the ground and the air is cold, but I just had to make a summery hair clip for my dolls.  I made a simple pink flower one, and then made this one:

IMG_1687The green and blue flowers are actually soft paper embellishments, from Prima.  Therefore, this sort of clip wouldn’t work for small children but for photos and such it’s sweet 🙂  I simply hot glued the two flowers together, then glued a small rhinestone to cover the hole the flowers have in the center.  These holes are for scrap booking brads to go through.  I could have used a brad to cover the hole, but the rhinestone adds a bit more to the look than a brad would.  After the flowers were all put together, I glued them to a one inch alligator clip.  Voila!  Great accessory for summer dresses!

American Girl Doll Summer Sundress

summer dressI don’t know the name of the fabric this dress is made of, but it is very light and soft (like flannel). It’s the kind of fabric would be good to make a pair of summer pajamas out of.

I didn’t use a pattern for this dress.  The shirring on the top was already done, which gave me the idea for this dress.  I measured her front from armpit to armpit, straight across, because I knew the fabric was stretchable.  I also measure the back the same way.  I added a little extra in the back, so I could put Velcro on.  In the end, the front was 6 inches, and the back was 8 inches.  If I were to do it again, I would do the back 7 1/2 inches or even 7 inches, since the back isn’t tight fitting.

I cut the back piece down the middle, then stitched it back together almost all the way to the top, but left enough so I would have room for adding Velcro.

I attached the front and the back, and hemmed the bottom.

The straps I attached on the front, and the stitches aren’t hidden.  I thought it looked better with a little V.

The dress was very simple to make.  To do the shirring/smocking yourself, all you would need to do is hook up your sewing machine with elastic thread and stitch!  I, however, do not have a sewing machine so I must take advantage of pre-sewn fancies.

The fabric flower is currently sewn to a regular human sized hair tie, which is stretchy enough to go over the doll’s head.  When I have a hair clip available, I’m going to take the flower off the hair tie and hot glue it to the clip.  I think that would be much better then a headband, especially one that is turquoise and doesn’t match the dress!

Anyway, the fabric flower I found here and I did it exactly the way the directions said, except I had to size it down.  Any smaller, and it would be difficult – not impossible, though – to sew together.

If this style of flower doesn’t match your outfit, you may find a flower for you here.

Next is a Disney Frozen outfit!
