I don’t think I got to bed much before 1 am a single night in Dec. My basement crafting corner was turned into an a sweatshop and cyclone all in one. Now that the aftermath has been sorted and put back together again, here are a few photos of what came from it all.
This free, online pattern for a drop waist dress fits an American Girl Doll. Both the pink calico and Christmas dresses were from that pattern and the apple nightgown is modified from it. There is a little corduroys skirt and head cover and a tiny apron.
I modified Noodlehead’s cargo messenger bag to make a diaper bag for all these goodies and then Grandma added some special catalog outfits too. It was a favorite gift for a certain 7 year old.
For our little purple girl who cannot seem to have enough shoes or purses, was–from Noodlehead again, the gathered clutch. I didn’t get it quite right and though I have made another once since, I think the third time will prove to be the charm. It’s a tad difficult to follow at points and I credit my late night brain drain for not cutting the mustard. This really would be the perfect pattern for a mother’s day gift. It’s cute! But my botched one works just fine for a soon-to-be three year old.
My daughters seem to have a bag thing starting…just like their mother. More bags to come tomorrow.
