This project was fast and simple! I cut off the ends of the sleeves of a human long-sleeve t-shirt. The first sleeve piece I simply sewed one end closed to make a cute light blue beanie!
The second sleeve piece I cut in half vertically, and stitched it to make two tubes. I fit the tubes on my doll’s hands to see where to cut the thumb holes.
The gloves and hat together create a fabulous light blue ensemble to accessorize an outfit.
The cold air continues to remind me that it’s winter, and I should be making warm clothes for my dolls. In light of that, I tried out a specific pattern from JenWrenne. The pattern is free and can be downloaded here. The link to the PDF is about halfway down. The file is called “Mix and Match Week 2”.
It was simple to put together. The back closes with Velcro, and there is a small hole in the hood making it is easier to get the head in when unVelcroed. I found this interesting. My Kidz Sophie doll has a lot of hair, making it kind of weird to be wearing a hood with tons of hair coming out the side. I realized that if I put her hair in a low pony, it could slip through the hole and everything would be normal! I don’t think I have a picture of this though.
I made the white and grey fingerless gloves using this tutorial. I used adult sized mittens. The raw edges of where I cut are threatening to fray, so I handle these gently.
It’s Freebie Friday today over at Pixie Faire, so head on over to get a free Slouch Ankle Boot pattern for American Girl Doll (usually $3.99).
