Well we're back from our vacation in Utah, which was so fun and full of skiing, BYU Basketball games, shopping and hanging out with family.
One of the fun projects I've been working on since
we've been back is clothes for my daughter's new doll that she got for
(not an American girl, she's a Springfield girl)
(same size though, 18")
and she wanted to have lots of clothes for her to change into.
So I got busy and used outgrown or stained
t-shirts/pants from her to make "Abby" some clothes.
This one was from my daughter's favorite shirt that had a huge hole in it.
The jeans are from a pair of old jeans.
stained t-shirt got a whole new look.
These leggings from an old t-shirt go with everything.
This is the same material that my kids Christmas pj's were made in.
Old t-shirt, now a long dress.
(maybe too long...oops
it was my first attempt.)
Another stained t-shirt and one leg of a pair of outgrown jeans.
The best parts about using outgrown or stained clothes are:
1. I get to use the existing hems on the sleeves, neck and bottom and that saves time and gives it a finished look.
2. The cost for these clothes are $0.00
3. My daughter can remember wearing some of these clothes
and loves that her doll now gets to wear them.
4. They take less than an hour to make.
Win for me.
