Two entries in one week. Will wonders never cease? I found some cute patterns and I wanted to try them. Since I tend to sew for two girls that have AG dolls, I decided I needed an extra model to help out. I got both my dolls on Ebay for decent prices. They match my nieces Rayne and Chloe so I figure I can name mine Jayne (the blonde) and Zhoe (the brunette). Odd spellings but I figure I can be creative in other areas besides sewing. I have been out of the sewing loop for a while so I want to get back into it a lot more. I would like my items to be good enough to sell for top dollar. I don't want to sell, but I want them to be good enough anyway.
Anyway....I found some cute patterns I wanted to share with you and a couple of them are FREE.
I made these cute hat patterns and they were fun to make. I say 'fun' but my hubby heard me grumble more than once about how they were small and a bit of a pain going around corners and such with the sewing machine. I keep forgetting to use my own advice of pin, pin, PIN !! Let me show you these cuties...
I also did a cute "Izzy" top for my Bitty Baby. It's also a freebie for kids and a very easy sew as well. I doesn't come in a doll size but you can take it and reduce it.
I did sew up a cute skirt as well. Not a free pattern but not an expensive one. I'll share that link in a moment as well.
This is a Liberty Jane pattern at this site.. http://www.libertyjanepatterns.com/2009/11/liberty-jane-mini-skirt-pattern-for-american-girl-dolls.html
A very quick and easy sew.
Well, that's it for this entry. I have a few projects to sew up so I will come back and enter them later.
