OMG!!!!  I made a pair of shoes.

I'm so excited I am going straight to the picture.





Now for the details:   The only thing I did not make was the HAT it was purchased from Build-A-Bear, one of my favorite places to pick up cute accessories at affordable prices.  The hat has pink trim with a bow on the side.  Retails for $6.00.

I made the BAG using a pattern for a "people size" bag pattern that was a free download from Made by Rae it's called the Buttercup bag.  So cute.   See the close up picture below.

Oh and my first attempt at SHOES!   Using the "Plain Jane Shoes" pattern by  
Love U Bunches which can be purchased at:  http://www.pixiefaire.com/collections/18-inch-doll-clothes-patterns  Retails for only $3.99.  If you have ever thought about making shoes.....this is a great pattern to help you get started.



Skirt & Shirt  were made using the Savannah Skirt pattern made by SEW Urban which can also be found at Pixie Faire.  Retails for $3.99.   I used  the Bella pattern from http://www.bunnybear.com/2010s/bella-twilight-pattern  Retails for $8.95.

  2. Hi Suzi: I found your blog today while surfing the internet for free patterns for 18 inch dolls as my 7 year old granddaughter has two dolls. So today I made two jumpers and two skirts and tops and I am now hooked! I am a quilter and while I have the basic sewing skills, my seam ripper and I became quite close today. Well anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I love your blog and am very inspired by your beautiful creations!

    1. Thank you for your kind words. Sewing for grandchildren and dolls is addicting but it is so much fun. I love sewing for dolls. They never change their measurements and seem to love everything I make for them as I have never heard them utter any kind of complaint.

  3. Hi Suzi, I just discovered your blog today and had to laugh! (In a good way). I am a 56 yo doll lover - and have been making AG doll clothes for many years now - off and on. I have four daughters (18 - 32) and at least two of them love their AG dolls, however, I have more dolls than all of my girls together! :) I LOVE your doll clothes that you have made for the post - and JUST before finding your site, I discovered those bow tie shoes!! VERY cool and I think I am going to have to get the pattern and make them. Right now I am working on making 'camp clothes' for my dolls - I discovered Camp Doll Diaries. OMG!!

    1. Thanks for the comments - I sent a response to your email. I will definitely check out Camp Doll Diaries. Sound like I will end up with a few more AG "to do" projects. Oh my!

  4. Oh Ladies, SoSewSuzi is so inspirational! I am 56 almost 57 & LOVE DOLLS! All sizes & I hope I get inspired to sew again. I have three dolls - Dessie Grace, Devon, & Carys. The last two are for my granddaughters to play with while visiting me. I would like more dolls but furniture & accessories are my priority now.

    1. Hi Sharon,
      Glad you found my blog. Thank you for the kind comment. I am also working on getting stuff to make up a Doll house or maybe Doll rooms. I just picked up a stove and refrigerator while antiquing last week. They are metal and Wolverine brand and in surprisingly good condition for a child's toy. Have fun accumulating the furniture and accessories.
