Backpack and hat finished

The adorable monkey backpack is for my friend Rissa. When she was learning to sew she had told me she really liked this bag. So I made it for her for Christmas. This is pattern McCalls 5341. I thought it was pretty hard to make. I don't want to make it again.
The kitty hat is for her sister Maggie. This pattern is so easy. It's from Simplicity 1953. I've also made 2 of the monkey hats for my grandkids. I'll have to get a picture with them. The outside is fleece and lining is flannel.

More Doll Clothes

Click here for my Sew Mama Sew giveaway.

This pretty girl has been busy trying on lots of clothes. I'll have to fix that hair before she goes back in the box. I made her this cute little flannel nightie.
I really love this trench coat from pleather at Joann's. The sleeves are too short. I think she's supposed to wear gloves with it. Think I'll add a little extra piece there. The purse came from Michael's last night for $2.99. This would be really hard to make.

Doll Dresses for Christmas

For Christmas this year I got the grandkids B.F.C. ink Summer Splashin' dolls. They are 18" dolls but skinnier than the other dolls. I've only seen them at Target and they were $20.00. (The clothes for these are super expensive, like $15.00). I think the girls will like them better because their bodies are similar to Barbie, but bigger. They are poseable and you can put them in the water. They only come with bathing suit sandals and purse.

The regular 18" doll clothes are a couple inches too big. I have lots of doll patterns so here we go.

These are the first two I've made. Their from Simplicity 2768 view B. Doll clothes are harder to make than big clothes. Just saying.........
