Our Generation “Red All About It” Shoe Review

I have decided to write my first review on a pair of shoes I recently got!  The Our Generation “Red All About It” shoes are a sparkly coral-ish pink.

They have a cute ribbon bows on the front, and silver metal studs all the way around.  The studs rattle a little when putting on the shoes, but it doesn’t look like they will fall out.DSCN5085I expected the shoes to have a gritty feel to them, because of the glitter.  Actually, they are quite soft to the touch.DSCN5075I have heard that some Our Generation Shoes don’t fit American Girl Dolls well.  However, these flats fit my AGs very nicely.DSCN5079I especially like these shoes because they are a unique color.

The soles are black plastic, similar in material to the soles of the purple shoes in this outfit which are from Sophia’s on Amazon.DSCN5082

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

Doll Living Room Photos

I set a side a new place to photograph my dolls, that is large enough to include all four of them, as well as a piece of furniture or two.  I shot some photos of the dolls in their new-ish environment, trying out different furniture arrangements.  The girls are playing with toys 🙂

My Kidz n Cats doll is wearing her flannel winter jammies (made by me), she likes to wear them all day.

My Rebecca doll is wearing her Red Ruffle Jumper outfit.  (Made by me)

My other AG doll is wearing a pair of jeans made from the Liberty Jane pattern.  Her shoes are made from duct tape.  You can read about them here.  The sweatshirt I’m not going to say yet, but it’s related to something very exciting!

The OG boy is wearing Bitty Twins jeans, his boots I made, and the shirt is here.

Our Generation Doll Drivers Cap

IMG_0635.JPG

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.

Our Generation Boy Doll

IMG_1196This is me and my brother’s Our Generation boy doll.  We got him (originally ‘her’) on sale at Target.

He was, when we bought him, Sadie.  I cut his hair off (I’m not quite finished with cutting it).  We also lightened his lip color with non-acetone finger nail polish remover, and trimmed his eyelashes.

I made the shorts for my American Girl Doll at first, but they were so small I couldn’t get them on.  Luckily, OG dolls are skinnier (although the same height), and the shorts fit nicely on this guy.  Because he is skinnier then an American Girl Doll, I think I will be able to use the girl patterns on him, because they will turn out looser.

The t-shirt is my favorite shirt pattern, because it’s easy and has sleeves.  The pattern is from SimplySweetByb.com here.  I use it in a lot of outfits.  I printed and cut out Perry the Platypus from Phineas and Ferb on iron-on transfer paper.  The printer decided to print Perry’s hat green, but it didn’t bother us.

I plan on making him a wardrobe of clothes and posting them!
