Then I decided to make Abby another outfit for her new 26" doll. The first outfit that I made fit OK except the neckline on the blouse was too big. I decided to make a blouse with elastic in the neck this time so she won't have that problem. The fabrics and lace for this skirt and blouse all came from either garage sales or thrift shops!
The skirt has an attached slip with lace.

In between some other sewing, I decided to make a couple small quilts out of 1" strips. One of them is quilted and ready for the binding. I decided to trim it for binding and accidentally trimmed 3 sides of the unquilted one by mistake before I noticed it was the wrong one. They measure 13 1/2" x 11 1/2".
Here's a better picture of the triangle bag. It must have contained a sheet set or something like that at one point, but it is a very sturdy plastic bag. Occasionally, I will make HSTs or pinwheels out of left-over triangles. This bag has triangles of all sizes in it just waiting to be used for something.
That's it for this week.
