The girls are coming......the girls are coming!!!!

Finally!  Paris and Hannah  (Mom and Dad) are making the drive from MN to KS.  Estimated time of arrival about 8:30PM.  Spent the day finishing and wrapping up the AG doll clothes that I have been making for them.  

Have wrapped up 7 outfits for each girl so far....10 more to wrap (5 more for each).
The wrapping is not fancy but it is functional.   I wrap each outfit in tissue paper and stitch the ends closed on my sewing machine with a wide zig-zag stitch and then use decorative scissors to trim the ends.
While I was up in the Guest bedroom / Doll room I thought I would post an
updated picture (s) of my doll closet.


  1. What a cute idea and your closet is over the top. Just found your blog!! Sew excited to now follow along.

  2. Adorable - isn't being a grandmother so much fun....I love sewing and making doll things with my two.

  3. Love your doll closet!!! Check out my Blog and Etsy shop!!! I too am a Grandma...and the kids got me back into all of this!!!!

  4. Super fun! I just found your blog through Pinterest. It is just great. My daughter and I are learning to sew together with AG doll clothes. I appreciate your tips!

  5. Wow, just all those colors make me happy! Is that fabric laying in the cubes? And how many dolly dresses do you have? I'm not a nana yet, I'm still sewing for my youngest daughter--but I need a great big bottle of time to fit in all the things I want to make for her dollies.
    Here's some of what I've done for her:

    1. Yes.....that is fabric folded in the cubes and I have to admit what you see is only a quarter of the fabric I have stashed in cabinets and other cubes around the house. The count of the dresses is hard to tell. I usually make 1/2 dozen of each dress I but give most sometimes all of them away to friends and family. I am working on opening an Etsy Shop so building up stock is on my "to do" list. Time was always an issue for me too and I thought when I retired I would have more time than I would know what to do with. Not far as sewing there is never enough time. I have always practice Nancy Zeimans 10, 20, 30 minutes to sew and still do now. Thanks for the link to your photos....will definitely check it out.

  6. Your closet is a joyful thing to see - so many happy, lively colors. And so neat too! My own sewing room closet is always disheveled !
