Little House in Alabama

I just finished the second Prairie-style dress. I'm not at home, so I don't have Katie with me to model it. (My niece named my doll Katie. I promise I'm not all Single White Female.)

This is fabric I got at Jo-Ann's. I love it because the scale of the print is perfect for the doll. This dress reminds me of one my Grandma Haney (the original crazy doll lady) would love.

Beach Towels

It couldn't have been easier to make some matching beach towels for the swimsuits. I bought a hand towel from Target and ironed on an appliqué that I got from Jo-Ann's. I also found some ribbon with flip-flops on it that would have been cute too.

Surf's Up!

Our power is out. I did manage to finish these two swimsuits earlier though. They should be simple to make but I managed to mess up three of them.

I couldn't find any swimsuit material I liked, so I went to the Wal-Marts and bought an actual girls' bathing suit and cut it up. The genius of that is that it's then easy to have matching girl/doll swimsuits.

All's Well That Ends Well

I think every girl needs a Laura Ingalls dress for her doll. Now I need to find a bonnet pattern!

The gingham pinafore is removable, so the dress underneath could be worn by itself. I think that Anne Shirley would approve of the puffy sleeves.

And I bought these adorable shoes to match!
