My little chick is turning five this weekend and to celebrate we are taking her to the American Girl store for a morning of fun. Everyone needs special birthday clothes and this year I turned to Sarah Jane to provide the cutest fabric for my chick.
This is one of my play skirts that is embellished with some hand embroidery to add a little fun. I made a simple matching shirt with some of the parade appliqued on.
A trip to the American Girl store isn’t complete without a matching outfit for your little Bitty Baby. I purposely made this dress a size up so that hopefully the “big girl doll” she picks out can get to wear it too.
Happy Birthday to my sweet chick-a-dee!
The kids and I visited our new Habitat Restore and at first glance I was a little disappointed…until I rounded the corner and found the motherload of 25 cent patterns. Five crates full!
I found a couple of cool 1960s dress patterns for me:
Some super cute doll clothes patterns (one is actually from the 1960s and the other is a reprint of a vintage pattern)
And a host of patterns for the chick (these are all from 2000 and on up, but can’t be the price!)
for one of our little friends. These are for a 20″ size doll. Thinking I might make some more to put up on etsy…thoughts? Not sure what the demand/need is for custom doll clothes.
What is most fun about this outfit, is that I made a diaper bag for this little one out of this exact fabric. How time flies!
Here is the last of the Christmas sewing. Did I get it all done? No, alas I didn’t. The rooster will just have to get his PJ pants for New Years instead. I’ve got loads of cooking to do tomorrow so this is it.
