My 7 year old granddaughter, Abby, got a new doll for Christmas. Below you can see her 18" doll on the left and the new 26" tall doll on the right. So, as a sewing grandma, I thought I would make some clothes for the new doll. But, there aren't any patterns for doll clothes that size, so after seeing some information on adjusting patterns, I thought I would try it.
Of course, I had to make an outfit for the 18" doll too. The fabric with bicycle wheels seemed to go with the pink bicycle fabric.
I didn't have enough of the wheel fabric, so I chose something else for the large doll. Her capris aka peddle pushers are longer than they look in photo because they are hidden under the top. I hope the blouse and peddle pushers fit. BTW, my "model" doll was purchased at a garage sale for 50 cents. Someone cut all her hair off!
I had to share the article about our town that was in the paper on Tuesday. If you can't read it, it states that our town, McMinnville, OR, is on the list of "Best Places to Live in the West" in Sunset Magazine's February 2016 issue.
If anyone reading this plans to attend the "Stitches in Bloom" quilt show at Oregon Gardens in Silverton, OR this weekend, the quilt on my header will be there. I haven't decided which day I will be going yet, but would love to meet any bloggers that might be there.
