Easy Crochet Doll Hat Pattern

I am the weirdo who crochets in the waiting room. I have very little patience for situations where I have to just sit there and, well… wait! I need something to pass the time and feel like I am still being productive. It is part of my wiring, I guess. Not that I don’t waste a lot of time on my own, but when I am wasting my time just waiting- that bothers me! I…

She is sewing lots of doll clothes! Most of them are for American Girl or 18″ dolls, but someone asked if she could make doll clothes for a Bitty Baby. She made a dress and matching…

Doll Clothes Sewn by a 12yo

My 12yo daughter began making doll clothes this summer. She wanted some expensive shoes for school and would have exceeded her school shopping allotment. So, I told her she had to find a way to earn money to buy them herself. She began designing and sewing doll clothes (with a lot of help) and earned enough to get those shoes (YAY for a sale!), some additional clothes, gifts for friends, and add to her washi…
