Matching Girl and Doll Hats

Since I was on a doll hat crocheting kick and my 9yo could use a new hat for playing in the snow, I ended up making a matching girl and doll set! I let her pick the yarn and I think they came out pretty cute! I used Charisma yarn from Michaels and it makes such a soft, fluffy pom pom on top of the hat! I used one skein to make both hats. As…

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…

Merida Doll Dress Pattern and Tutorial

At our recent trip to the thrift store to get bunny ears, we also picked up a few other things. One of them was a Merida doll. My 3yo LOVES that movie! (Honestly, I have never even seen the whole thing. If the kids are glued to the TV, I am busy getting something done. Like sewing.) Normally, I would not buy a doll with curly hair, but it was only $1.50 and in great…

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…

Farmhouse Doll Bed and Star Doll Quilt Pattern

When my husband made doll bunk beds for one of our daughters, the rest of them wanted doll beds, too. So, this Christmas, I nagged convinced him to make another one. I actually tried to do it myself, but, as I suspected, he couldn’t handle my woodworking skills and jumped in to finish. He didn’t like the last doll bed he made so I suggested a farmhouse style bed. He made two twin size beds a few months…

DIY Doll Bunk Beds

For Christmas 2014 I got my husband to build our daughter bunk beds for her American girl dolls. Of course, it was finished just before Christmas, and I was sneaking down to the basement for a few minutes at a time to paint them red, her favorite color. I was so surprised that I was able to pull it off! (I also had a gigantic trapping basket in the tub hidden behind the shower curtain…

Scrappy Squares Doll Quilt

The other day, since I had a few minutes before an appointment, I pulled up Netflix to finish an episode of Fixer Upper and sat down to hand stitch the binding on this doll quilt. Spring sports are upon us, so with the rushing around all of the time, it was awesome to just sit down and relax for a little bit. AND I got another finish done from my Finish-A-Long goals (see HERE). Double…
