Flutter Sleeve Doll Dess

When my 5yo got her own “fake American Girl doll” for her birthday, she immediately began nagging incessantly for a doll dress to match her Flutter Sleeve Sundress (more on that HERE). It was only fair, so I whipped one up as soon as I got a chance. She loves it! Again, I took pictures this time since I didn’t have a deadline and could sew in the daylight hours, so you are getting a…

Boutique Peasant Doll Dress Pattern

I was surprised that so many people were interested in the pattern for this dress! So, I redrew it from my scribbled up copy and copied all of the measurements onto the same paper. Here ya’ go! The downloadable pdf pattern is available HERE. (Updated 3/20/16)If you have trouble, please just e-mail me at pacountrycrafts at gmail dot com and I will send you a copy of the pattern. I hope this helps! The directions…

Boutique Peasant (Doll) Dress Tutorial

You didn’t think I would get away with making a matching dress for just ONE of my daughter’s dolls, did you? No way! With four girls (and who knows, maybe another one on the way to crush their brother’s hopes one last time) if I am going to sew something for one of my girls, I had better be prepared to sew that something for the other ones, too. So, I made a Boutique Peasant…

Twirly Lace Doll Dress Pattern

  I had some fabric left over from the girls’ Easter dresses, so I decided to make matching dresses for their new American Girl dolls. They loved this!   For this dress I actually made two because I am a perfectionist like that. It really took hardly any fabric, though, and I came up with some things to make it better. First of all, the bodice and straps are all one piece: For the back,…

Hole in the Barn Door Quilt

WOOHOO! I finished it, and it didn’t even take me HALF of the month of May! Sweet!!! And then, because I am lazy uncomfortably pregnant, I walked a few feet outside to our garden, which is planted  for grazing this year to give it a rest, flopped it on top of the spelt, and snapped a few pictures as the sun was going down. Instead of hand quilting this one, I decided to try out…

T-Shirt Nightgown Tutorial

Last summer, I did a guest post over for CraftyTammie‘s Sew Full of Summer series, so I thought I would share it over here on my blog, too.  Girls nightgowns are awfully pricey in the stores, for what they are, but my girls were in need of some.  I have made a few here and there, but as I was gradually attempting to conquer my fear of knits last summer, I converted some old Tshirts into nightgowns for the girls. I…

Cozy Knit Maternity Skirt

Last week I whipped up this skirt for myself. Yes, I sewed something for myself. That was not a typo.  I am not usually comfortable having my picture taken, but for my loyal readers I will make this sacrifice.  🙂  I walked up to the edge of the fields with my oldest daughter and gave her the camera.    She did a fantastic job! Oh, and before you think that belly is so adorable, let…

Crochet Bear Hat Pattern

  About a month ago, I whipped up a little something for my cousin’s baby shower. The gender is a surprise, but the nursery theme is bears. So, I decided to make a crocheted bear hat. It was super easy and I worked on it during my prep and lunch periods while substitute teaching- it did not take long at all!   I used Charisma yarn that I had on hand from the flowers on…
