American Girl Doll Beanie and Fingerless Gloves

DSCN2298This 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.

Our Generation Doll Drivers Cap


This is my first post that features something sewn for an Our Generation Doll.  I introduced this Our Generation Boy Doll in May.  Since then he has undergone more touch ups to make him more boy-ish looking.  He was originally Sadie.

After doing research, I was unable to find a free drivers cap pattern for an 18″ doll online.   I ended up making this drivers cap using this human hat tutorial.  The hat pattern originally would have made a hat with a circumference of 24 inches.  Seeing how I had to get it down to about 11″, I sized the pattern down a lot.

The outer fabric is wool, with a lining of brown silk.  For the brim I used flexible plastic.  The ribbon is Offray 5/8″ Torrid Orange.

American Girl Doll Newsboy Cap



A few days ago I made my first hat!  It was for a human, so afterwards I wanted to make a cute hat for my doll.  I did some research on patterns, because I never really had searched for hat patterns before.  Among the free hat patterns I found, the Trendy Newsboy Cap from Daydream Doll Boutique.  I used plastic for the brim.  The pattern didn’t include a lining.  I followed the instructions for the outside of the hat for the brown silk lining I inserted to make it look better inside and out.

After making the Fall Time Dress out of a 18×20 quilting square I bought at Hobby Lobby for 84¢, I had enough fabric left to make the hat out too! The fabric has a lot of colors, so the hat could go with many different colors.

Today is a weekend and daylight savings day!  I’m  planning on saving some time to sew!
