Accessorizing


I'd first like to thank all of you for the hilarious captions you gave the plum and kiwi snapshot.  You guys are so creative!

Now on to the post.



I was playing with my daughter the other day and she brought me this doll of hers.  I noticed that the little blue dress she had on was getting pretty nasty.  The above picture was taken a few months ago, so it doesn't show the wear and tear.  Let me just say it this way, you see the little white blouse front?  It wasn't white anymore.

Grody.

So I took a nap time to make a new little dress for her.  And can I say just how hard it is to sew clothes with a machine for tiny little dolls?  This little dress had to be sewn on to her permanently because she is immovable.  Any tips would be great.


While I was at it I decided to add a few props.  

Like a little pillow and quilt ~


And a basket like this one.  

The basket was an instant hit.  Anything with handles on it seems to be a girly plus.


All I could think was to make the pillow, quilt, and basket.  I'd love to add more to her treasures.  Any ideas?

Love it!! I want to see how you made the basket and also a huge CONGRATULATIONS on your new little boy. Karen was here the other night and mentioned that you had already expanded your sweet family.

does she have baby food for her dolly? You could maybe come up with a way to make baby food jars? I think some stuffing with a cylinder shape and some applique food on the outside would work I.e. a picture of a carrot?
